Transcription of the Recording
The idea behind my work right now is to really investigate memory and how it pertains to space. So, I'm recording here I'm in New York and I've been here about a year. And I'm currently specifically in Brooklyn. And I'm recording kind of a very candid message to any future listeners really. I guess sort of a benchmark or a postmark of myself at this time and place, and you all are listening to this at the moment. So, this is sort of my message to Jason and Chloe who are in Maine currently, because who knows where they'll be in the future. But I wanted to say that I'm truly happy for that memory in which I was sitting here in my chair and, you know updated my application to be accepted into the app store through for iTunes and such and then Jason was the first person to record something. And what he ended up recording was, well first that it worked was incredibly astounding, and he recorded this he recorded crickets chirping in his backyard. Since I had administrative privileges to be able to listen to all the recordings regardless of where I was I of course listened to it and I was astounded by how clear it sounded and where it placed me. It placed me back in Virginia. Surprisingly enough you know, he's recording in Maine and I'm listening to in New York and what I'm thinking about is Virginia. I invited Jane over and she sat with me as we listened to recording and we are both back in Virginia just really listening to the crickets in our own minds of where we heard it before. I will never forget that connection, you know because I, it had been awhile since I've gotten the application to work and then Jason was kind enough to start it out. And then all I heard were crickets. And somehow that, it so goes against that the usage of crickets in like media you know. To imply borningness or some sort of fault, like an emptiness, a kind of mistake. But in this case it was a beautiful confirmation that what I've done works. And I couldn't be happier, I mean, sorry to sound so narcissistic but, you when you build your system you're just happy that it goes. That's what I wanted to share with you and on the back, of this, if you scanned this from the card - on the back is the original recording from where it was. Thank you.
