The Bay of Broken Things

Joshua Bonnetta
2017, audio work on cassette, 25 min.

This tape, a map of sorts, resituates recordings of five disparate islands into an archipelago built up from layers of sound fragments. A study in accretion and the sedimentary parallels of geological formations and sound design; islands imagined as repositories for environmental memory, above and below.
