Nest

A day off
Abby Lee Tee
(9m24s, December 2022)

A day off – the sounds of privileged life in a small, cosy flat while a crisis after another exacerbating in the outside world. Very close encounters with gurgling stomachs, diligent small critters, dishwashers, washing machines, moka pots, tea kettles and a hailstorm on the other side of the windows.

 

Sound piece commissioned by SEMI SILENT in the frame of SONIC FUTURE RESIDENCIES 2022.
