Earlier this year I had the great fortune to work with Jennifer Lauren Smith, a grad student in Virginia Commonwealth University’s Sculpture + Extended Media MFA program. February is a 10-minute film centered around the inflation and flight of a hot air balloon over the Central Virginia countryside. I was responsible for recording, creating, and synchronizing the sound world of the film (and I rode a hot air balloon in the process).

The finished piece premiered on May 6, 2011 projected on a large screen in the Anderson Gallery Carriage House on the VCU campus. It was installed again in June in the Our Cult’s Classic exhibition at The Boiler in Brooklyn.
