Holding Space

Holding Space is a sonic portrait honoring places in Oakland that I return to for their familiarity. These locations have acted as open listeners and active participants in the ways I process and honor my time in the Bay Area. In this constantly shifting landscape, sound is always present for me as a reminder of intimacy and care. In this piece, I pass through a community garden, Oakland Chinatown, and walk along a freeway overpass near my home. Holding Space melds field recordings with synthesized sounds as a way to make sense of my cumulative experiences in these locations.
