about

In Black Out, Alex Keller uses slowly developing sounds to manipulate the acoustic and mechanical properties of a room, in an exploration of the natural rhythm of breath, and the stasis that emerges from its absence.

The piece evolved from a series of experiments with electronic sound generators. The resulting recordings, multiple layers of low frequency sounds, were then played back and re-recorded at Salvage Vanguard Theater in Austin.

In the final recordings, the theater's lights and other fixtures rustle, vibrate, and wheeze in sympathy with the oscillating sounds, transforming the entire room into an idiosyncratic breathing organism. We've presented those recordings here with minimal corrective editing and processing.
