Work Overview

The strange contrast of traveling yet not able to move yourself, crammed into a busy carriage, a small seat, a traffic jam, a queue, in a sea of bodies, a blur of faceless individuals, nervous, tense, going through the motions . . .

nowhere moving is an uneasy meditation on some everyday experiences of modern urban life. From the opening it sets up its mechanisms, constant processes, clicking, churning. The individuals fall in, are tossed around, attempt to break into their own, work their way into somewhat grooves.

The electronics for this piece are in the form of a pre-recorded tape track, which mostly consists of harsh electronic percussive clicking.
