KSE #182 (3-inch CDR—$5 postpaid)
Visual artist, composer, musician, small-label head, Harvard graduate—-Hamilton, Ontario’s DR. SEAN GADOURY is truly a renaissance man.
We asked Sean to create a new work for KSE, and what he came up with is a 19 minute slow-motion flotation through dark space, lit only by a distant arc light that may well be imagined, a visual mirage. When one is in the dark, one’s pupils expand so that the darkness eventually takes on depth and perspective and contours, and the smallest glint of distant light takes on great significance. A similar thing happens to the mind as one listens to “arc light”—Sean Gadoury slows down time and pulls us into his deep, textured world beyond time, beyond landmarks, beyond traditional vision. And half-heard voices emerge and recede, and the tension heightens, and we realize how busy the space has been all along. Then shimmering, pulsing waves of light emerge in a short coda, only to recede as gracefully as they’ve appeared. Or maybe we imagined it all?
arc light is a work you can set on repeat, a trip that demands to be revisited. All on a 3″ cdr that’s only $5.00 ppd. anywhere. Limited hand-numbered, hand-assembled edition of 75 copies. Send payment via paypal to django5722(at)yahoo(dot)com .
