Extraction (FAG 001) is a collaboration between Vida, visual artist Meredyth Sparks, and curator/writer Anthony Elms and is the first in a series of collaborative releases for Future Audio Graphics. \r\nContinuing Vidas explorations of digital and analog processing systems, Extraction gives particular focus to aural phenomena_¢‚Ǩ‚Äùengaging electronic, non-representational sounds that appear to cut, move and oscillate on both vertical and horizontal planes. Building on his past work, Vidas two, side-long contributions to Extractioninclude, among other things, a series of what appears to be infinitely long, sweeping tones staggered between short, halting breaks. The audio parallels an artistic practice and method that visual artist Meredyth Sparks has developed over the last five years in her own studio and practice.\r\n\r\nVida is a 2013 Artist-in-Residence at Brooklyns Issue Project Room and will be celebrating this release with a performance there on October 17th, 2013.
