Notes"Island Terminus was completed over a span of six weeks in early 2012, during the CRES Media Arts Committee Residency in Vancouver, BC.
The audio was culled from recordings made of three separate ferry voyages through the coastal waters of British Columbia, which included a number of stops at port locations I had been interested in recording at for a while: Langdale, Victoria, Nanaimo, and Horseshoe Bay. I spent three days total traveling to these locales. Along the way, I recorded the creaks and bellows emanating from the ferries themselves, proving most enriching to the cyclic, mechanized nature of the final work.
My intensions to create a single, unified, piece were thwarted while in the studio, as the source material began to naturally diverge. Very quickly, I found myself with two distinct movements. The second of the two pieces, I believe, better captures the heart of the musical hallucination, while the first is more contextualized, showcasing a kind of narrative of sea travel along the BC coast.
Despite the separate paths they eventually took, the two pieces remain intrinsically connected. One could not exist without the other, and their distinctive approaches to sound, framed in the context of port inhabitation and sea travel, lend to the necessitation of the work being experienced in succession. In a seasick sort of way, I like to think it all works."
