Work in Progress — Editing, Design, and Production
METAPHONICS: The Field Works Listener’s Guide is a book we're editing, designing, and producing in collaboration with Stuart Hyatt. Inspired by Hyatt’s audio field recordings, musicians from around the world have contributed complex sonic narratives under the Field Works banner.
The book will be part of a 6-Album box set with Team Records and Temporary Residence. Content includes seven original essays by experts and academics from around the world, inspired by naturalist Bernie Krause’s taxonomy of soundscapes; and a track-by-track guide accompanied by photographs by Hyatt. The book also features illustrations by Manuja Waldia and cover design by Elana Schlenker.
For this project we are managing and editing content, developing design and layout, and producing the book and packaging for the box set. The book will be released in September 2018.
