Monsters & Ghosts

Monsters & Ghosts

Earlid | Monsters & Ghosts, fall-winter 2021

Six sonic entanglements attune to uncertainties in a collapsing world. We need to hear these voices—real and imagined and aestheticized—to mirror our potential energies for changing a devastating future squarely in our midst.

This is a collection of magical figures, fits of vapors, states of disorientation, bewilderment and fear, winter mists, dark clouds of slight obscuration, apologies and gloom.

And hope.

And curiosity.

Hauntings, like ghosts, are not immaterial.
Monsters, too, are a kind of announcement of the physical future: we’re here!

Vigilance is the job of the artist—to look, to notice—to listen.
