DREAMCAR (Ford LTD Country Squire)

An audio installation inside an old wrecked automobile. The interior was stripped down, painted black, with speakers installed. A psychedelic minimal drone noise soundscape was composed specifically for listening inside the car. The sounds are a mix of abstract musical noises and drones that evoke both the psychedelic music of the late 60s and early 70s but also some of the experimental minimalist sounds being created around that time (the title is a reference to La Monte Young’s audio installation Dream House). This work was created for the Electric Eclectics festival, which takes place in Meaford, Ontario.
