Intermission 01:00:00


'Intermission' was composed to accompany A Sac of Rooms Three Times a Day, an installation by artist Alex Schweder, which premiered at Suyama Space in Seattle, WA. The installation was comprised of two transparent, vinyl houses, one inside the other, that would inflate and deflate three times a day.

Derived from recordings of the four inflation fans, 'Intermission' accompanied the piece during its two hour deflated phase; referencing its past movement, future activity, and resting present. The edited version of Intermission presented here, divorced of its surroundings, evokes the stillness and emptiness of a tundra landscape, creating its own environment of calm contemplation.
