EXTRACTED EARTH is an immersive sonic environment consisting of four individual works to be played simultaneously or at erratic intervals upon no less than eight speakers/four stereo systems within an equal proximity of hearing distance in repeat-all mode to create unique user generated combinations and performance possibilities. While each disc can be enjoyed for it's own properties, EXTRACTED EARTH is designed to be a participatory immersion experience. In the traditional dynamic there is the Sound Creator (the person who creates the sound/recording) and the Sound Listener (the person who consumes the final product). The relationship dead-ends when the act of creation is transferred into a passive state of being. With EXTRACTED EARTH the Sound Listener becomes an active arbitrator of the performance and the passive is expunged, becoming in essence a Sound Creator, by deciding how many discs will be played, in what sequence, in what locations and so on. DISC ONE: Yana, a Sanskrit word meaning "vehicle" but often used to suggest a "path," ::: piano/eternal feedback/whispers/water. DISC TWO: Hansa, a Sanskrit word for a mystic swan or goose representing divine wisdom beyond the reach of humans ::: prepared guitar/birds/trains. DISC THREE: Kali, a Sanskrit word with the dual meanings of both "time" and "black" ::: flute/blublu/drone/bells. DISC FOUR: Moksha, a Sanskrit word meaning liberation ::: feedback/Kestrel 920.
