A Land of Falling Waters is a stereo iteration of a quadrophonic live-performance presented throughout the summer of 2016.
A Land of Falling Waters refers to the bio-region of Cascadia, where much of the source field recordings were collected, and where Tim has lived most of his life. The region is known for it’s diverse climates and bodies of water – the Pacific Ocean, the mighty rivers, all the sounds and inlets and channels and waterfalls – surrounded by dense evergreen rain forest, snow-capped peaks, arid desert, marshland, agricultural wealth and urban encroachment.
Tim’s work leans heavily on processing and re-purposing found sounds and atmospheres. Often drawn to the smallest details within these recordings, he seeks to highlight them via repetition, obfuscation of surrounding elements, and contrast with man-made or synthesized tones and abstractions.
