BOUNDARYMIND PREMIERED ON JUNE 3, 2022 AT 6018|NORTH IN CHICAGO !
BOUNDARYMIND is a long-distance collaborative project by Linda Jankowska and Katherine Young. The evening-length electroacoustic sound piece and aggregating multi-media installation explores and transgresses the geographical, cultural, psychological, and musical boundaries that impact how we share—and modulate—our past, present, and future selves through collection and interaction with our material world. Every-day objects with sentimental meaning and memory-evoking power have been shared—recorded and remixed, filmed and animated, collected and woven into a three-dimensional tapestry. When the piece is fully realized—performed and installed for in-person experience—these objects and sounds, weaving by Molly Roth Scranton and film by Kera MacKenzie, are installed into an immersive space, and audience members are invited to contribute their own objects-memories-sounds. In 2021 we released aspects of the work into the world through a storefront installation at Roman Susan in Chicago, online performances at ESS Quarantine Concerts series and SEAMUS conference, and a Call-for-Home Recordings disseminated via the Internet and radio stations.
