Remnants of Creation

Program Note

Remnants of Creation is garbage. Literal garbage. Okay, okay, technically it's recycling. Plastic bottles, glass jars, soup cans, and old newspapers disappear from curbsides every week and make their way to Materials Recovery Facilities such as the one operated by Tulsa Recycle and Transfer, where all of the sounds in this work were recorded. In this work, hundreds of thousands of pounds of recycling introduce creation as a mechanical process rationally designed from random detritus.
