Perturbation by Robin Parmar | 10:09
My practice draws extensively on field recordings made in and around my home. Sources biotic and abiotic, artificial and otherwise, are reconfigured to highlight particulars of our milieu, emphasising our embedded situation in a network of connections and flows. „Perturbation“ derives from recordings that have been subject to spectral filtering, temporal shifting, and other transformations. What begins in the subjectivity of listening closely to small sounds, finds parallels in the universal realm of meteorological and ecological forces.
Robin Parmar is an intermedia artist whose practice incorporates electroacoustic composition, installations, improvisation, radiophonics, sonic ecology, poetry, and photography. Works have appeared in Ireland, England, Portugal, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Canada, and elsewhere
