Ready To Fall Apart

Ready to Fall Apart is a composition of concrete sounds obtained during the fabrication of an abstract, sculptural self-portrait. Materials and relevant studio equipment, such as a fan, sander, drill, hammer, nails and screws, and a digital camera (to document the final result) were gathered into the music studio where the sculpture was built from start to finish over the course of about five hours. This composition is a select arrangement of those collected sounds distilled to a 60 second time frame. The arrangement itself is meant to reflect a the creative process of the artist – clunking and slow sounds of getting started gather to a cacophony of activity which eventually yields to the precise beeps and motors of digital devices as the piece draws into focus at the very end. Ready to Fall Apart refers mostly to the physical state of the resulting sculpture.
