Stefan Paulus- Salt Sea Island [treetrunk 263]

“‘SALT SEA ISLAND’- is a sound cartography collected through field recordings across the world. these records are done during what guy debord describes as ‘dérive’ or ‘psychogeography drifts’: the experimental exploration of the environment, the mindful or transient passage through urban or country areas. This method can also be used to map the inner space – to create different thematic maps of reality. For these records I dislocated myself, followed animal trails deep into german woods, crossed the alpine valley of ötztal, recorded on mountain peaks, atlantic and pacific islands and sea ports. I connected with unknown persons. I jumped into the next subway, the nearest bus and got somewhere out. the sounds are compiled with what william s. burroughs describes as ‘cut-up and fold-in’: a method for ‘altering reality’ – and that is what it´s all about, a journey into altering realities.”– Stefan Paulus, 2013
