Steve Roden - Long Songs for Small Planes

Long Songs for Small Planes

A series of field recordings from four locations, each has also been modified via shifts in speed, fragmentation, collage and shifts in volume. The idea is to use the sounds of existing landscapes (that I have visited) to be used to create new landscapes.

Steve Roden is a visual and sound artist living in Pasadena California. His works include painting, drawing, collage, video/film, writing, sound recording and performance. He began making music in the Los Angeles punk band “Seditionaries” in the late 1970’s. Since then his work has become progressively quieter – as a response to the noise one encounters in just about every landscape – manufactured or natural. Roden’s works have been presented at various museums and festivals worldwide.
