“Wild as in Familiar” (2012) - This is a collaborative mother/daughter album of poetry and sound. Ellaraine Lockie wrote and read; I did the sound design and the music. We recorded the spoken word at an artist residency that we jointly attended (thank you, CENTRUM), and it was a beautiful albeit imperfect audio environment in which to record. Considering that we were relatively in the middle of nowhere on the coast of Washington, we had to compete with an amazing number of vehicles, from airplanes to cars to freighter ships moving through the channel miles away from where we were. (Later, in post-production, I learned about the power of X-Noise because of this.) I brought the recordings back to Los Angeles, where I worked on the music. The strictures I set for myself were that all sounds had to originate from either my mouth or my viola, and except for a little renegade ocarina and bell, that’s pretty much how all the sound happened. It is a very exciting project and was really fun to do. That was a surprise to me because I had never had any interest in combining sound with poetry; in fact, initially it sounded like a horrible idea to me. Also, I don’t think my mother had any idea what she was getting into when she asked me to do this, and I think she about threw a gasket when we were recording the spoken word part of it. For a non-musician, she showed an amazing amount of patience and fortitude at the microphone. My mom rocks! And you should order the collection.
