Lago

Joshua Bonnetta
2016, audio work on LP, 23.55 min.

Composed in dialogue with the photographic work of Ron Jude, Lago presents an acoustic ecology of the area around the Salton Sea: a site of environmental degradation in the Southern Californian desert.

Voices of area residents mix with ambient sounds of natural and built environment — attuning us towards, before defamiliarising, human and non-human relations.
