"A collaboration between Blood Wedding, object-oriented ontologist Timothy Morton, and visual artist Marlo Pascual. Blood Wedding has described these recordings as sonifying what Morton defines as the hyperobject, objects and forms so massively distributed in time and space that they transcend categories and localization. For Morton, nature is no arbitrary or anthropomorphic signifier and artistic representations of the environment should offer sites for opening ideas about nature to new possibilities. Blood Wedding's recording evokes the hyperobject in a number of ways: in its slowly evolving minimalism; its use of just intonation and the harmonic series; and its 'locking in' of pure intervals that provide subtle beating and pulses. But the recordings also suggest contrapuntal and phantom sounds that emerge from near misses in the execution of the pure interval and these sounds owe as much to the performance space as to the human ear. Similarly, within Pascual's work, objects and images appear to seek potential corollaries in unusual juxtapositions of the organic and the inorganic, the living and the non-living, the two-dimensional and the sculptural. Rather than seeing these forms as binaries, however, Pascual concretizes what Blood Wedding amplifies in their sound, the suggestion that there may be another form behind or within the image/noise. For Blood Wedding, this assumes the form of a distressed shape emerging from over-amplified circuits feeding back, devouring the sound in space, and taking life in the physics of electricity, in resonance, and acoustics that point to another level that's just on the edge of becoming."
