Representations, mediations, always abstractions. Naturalism, Realism are, after all, -isms; verisimilitude standing in for the notion of direct correspondence. The map is not the territory.
TIES DAY 2
I'm currently sitting at my sister's place in Toronto, preparing for my performance of Arboreal Audio tomorrow evening at this year's Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium. It's a trip being back in this city again, seeing a few of the same old sites, marking the massive changes to street front shops through the pressures of a volatile market. Having nice weather here certainly helps put a positive spin on my overall impression, but I'm really enjoying experiencing this city again in a way that seems all new. I'm really looking forward to transposing the trees of Arboreal Audio into this concrete jungle.
