Link to the bandcamp release HERE = RIFT ZONE!

Rift zone can be understood as a cryptic fugue of generated and recorded sounds intended to represent a cross section of the earth’s energies and capture a perceivable subset of them. It is an attempt to describe in sonic terms an under-the-surface exploration of the characteristics of the mythic elements of earth, air, fire, and water in the context of palpating the earth as a dynamic integrated system.
In his work, Lloyd Dunn (1957, Iowa) develops the possibilities of technology for creative statement using multimedia forms of expression. There is a human perception of art being examined by the artist through various stimuli and experience identification.

This gallery space creates a specific environment for the presentation of artists working with sound and spatial perception. The presentation here defines a sound point prepared by the author — a place where you can listen, deeply concentrate, share or resonate.

This project, called GARDENING OF SOUL: IN FIVE CHAPTERS, is gradually being built in collaboration with several local and international partners and its basic idea is to strengthen collaboration between artists, art institutions and local communities in the form of jointly realized artworks using various means of artistic research, participatory work and site-specific interventions.
