Frederick Felix I've always been amazed by the aural effect of falling snow, that unmistakable deadening of sound no matter what you're doing or where you are. It's genius to acquire this as sound in itself.


First presented as a durational audio-visual performance presented at Human Resources in Los Angeles (CA), Snowfall explores the hushed stillness and isolation sometimes experienced during a snowstorm. Presented over 6 hours, the audience was allowed to come and go as they please. This afford the viewer a more personal experience with the piece through the dispersion of the audience. Snowfall was constructed using photographs and field recordings collected at the Jentel Artist Residency outside Banner, WY in February 2010.


released February 11, 2014
