tuscarora by scott sherk
a second edition of our new occasional format, framework:ephemera. in each edition of framework:ephemera, which will be produced whenever possible, travels and meetings permitting, will feature selections from the personal collection of an invited guest, and commentary from our guest along with a visit to his/her home or studio. the first, let’s say ‘pilot’, edition was aired two weeks ago from the home of yannick dauby in taipei, taiwan. this one was produced in southeastern pennsylvania in the studio of scott sherk.
scott is a sculptor and sound artist who teaches in the art department at muhlenberg college in allentown, pennsylvania. his new work new york glyptic, has just been released on the 3 leaves label from hungary. he selected some great works from his shelves that have inspired and impressed him over the years, and talked to us about about his studio space, the third barn. scott’s selections included magnetic sound walks from christina kubisch, synthesized field recording transformations from andrew deutsch, a bus tunnel recorded by robert carlberg, improvisations with his own sonic sculptures by harry bertoia, and a bit of singing in the forest by the revenant project. to accompany these i selected a few excerpts from scott’s 3 leaves release, as well as an unreleased recording he made recently during the hurricane that hit the east coast of the united states.
