Sherre DeLys makes a point of bringing no consistent bag of tricks to her projects. She approaches each as an “improvised, open-ended dialogue with [her] subject.” You never know what approach she’ll take, and neither does she, but the result is often breathtaking. Sherre ends one piece, about the late artist Derek Jarman and his seaside home, with six minutes of wordless sound: waves pulling at the shore, gulls, a bell, an electric piano. This dance of pure sound, she believes, can mesmerize us into a “slower, stiller mode that promotes reflective inquiry.”

Keywords:   dialogue, improvised recording, pure sound
