Skin Rubbed Smooth
Pleased to say that my piece „Coconut Milk Massage“ was accepted for Joan Schuman’s „Skin Rubbed Smooth“ sound art compilation. There are 14 more artists and it’s well worth exploring the site – least but not last for the excellently written texts there! http://www.earlid.org/posts/skin-rubbed-smooth/
Earlid’s fourth annual Liminal Sounds listens to short works with a focus on what lies beneath, skin next to other skins, the outer interior of objects, excised stories.
Listen for the palimpsest of bodies and cities and snow; the skin of audio tape; objects rubbed relentlessly. The very texture can be held in the hands, turned like pages. Parchment is respected for its once belonging to part of a living creature; roe deer running, caught by traffic or a hunter’s gun. The surface has the imprint of veins, grain of the skin, layers of translucent collagen. Its opacity sits below the surface, like a shallow pool.
