Ivan Juritz Prize

Shortlisted for the Ivan Juritz Prize.

Medial Dark Ages is a piece that uses field recordings, DIY electromagnetic detectors, and open-source electronic instruments. Listening in a different context can surprise us with sounds we didn’t notice before but were always present. Recording nature is a way to document the changing world. I have worked with bats, crickets, and sheep recordings in this composition. I have been experimenting with Bat5 Digital Bat Detector for the bats, which amplifies and filters the bat’s signals. The composition adheres to a postmaterialist perspective on technology, such as in James Bridle – New Dark Ages – and intends to fit music technology in the context of critical thinking and media archaeology theory.
