Shipping container installation created inside former ship's boiler factory as a vehicle for Mark Johnson's performance. Building off of his experiments on Cascade Container Range, we mic'd the containers and recorded a live performance of improvised musical suites Mark created by resonating cables and wood pieces attached to the belly of the beast. The piece spoke to memory, travel and the sea, narratives told by and through the boxes themselves. I have a copy of the mastered cd around here somewhere.
Sponsored in part with 4Culture funding, plus a studio residency with Doug Haire at Jack Straw Media program. James Van Lueven of Plan B did the recording. Thanks as always to Sam Farrazaino. Thanks also to Alaskan Marine, Julie Ross, Jay Lazerwitz and Dionne Haroutunian. Seats for the live performance provided by Stewart Bottling, via the IMEX, King County Solid Waste's Industrial Materials Exchange. The building smelled like root beer for weeks, but it was totally worth it.
