Live remixes audio of WNYC's radio reports of the 9/11 attacks

For Open Studio Days 2013, I created an installation where I performed live remixes of the WNYC eyewitness account radio reports recorded during the 9/11 attacks. The installation also consisted of a small looping video of a man running through a park with his arms outstretched like a plane. Behind where I sat creating the audio was a 36" x 108" black and white photograph of a 2002 performance piece protesting the state of the American political situation at the time.
 
For the live remix, I used DD6 and DD7 delay pedals to grab small samples of sound to loop and layer and an Alesis Metavox vocoder to degrade and music-fy additional samples. I plugged my Kaossilator into an Octave pedal to give it some depth and grit and made low musical accompaniment to the samples that I was processing live. The WNYC broadcast recordings were run off my iPad directly into the DD6.
 
This installation/performance served as a jumping off point for conversations about how this country has never processed 9/11 culturally, resulting in a lost decade and a lost people. During these conversations, people shared memories, thoughts and ideas about the event, the past decade and current politics in this country.
