artist: DALE LLOYD title: Organisms [For Rolf Julius And John Hudak] catalog number: and/39 release year: 2012 format: CD status: sold out
"Organisms", created between 2004 and 2005, is a unique release for the artist in that it brings to the fore some of the many ambiguous elements and processes he has employed in his work over the years. "Organisms" is a collection of seemingly organic, micro-environments created from transmuted field recordings of everyday human activity and computer generated electronic sounds. So, contrary to what might seem otherwise, no animal sounds were used in the making of this work.
From December 1st through the 4th, 2005, "Organisms" was presented as part of Susan Robb’s Aqua Art Sound Broadcast: Hidden iPod Transmission installation which took place at the Aqua Hotel in Miami, Florida. Only recently - many years after "Organisms" was finished - was it decided that the CD release would partially serve to pay respect to sound artists Rolf Julius and John Hudak, in recognition of their micro-environment work that pre-dates this one. Listening to "Organisms" while the CD player is set to “random shuffle” and/or “repeat” modes is highly recommended.
