In July 2017, I spent 10 days tracking the sky above Acra, NY (42.3109° N, 74.0554° W) during my artist residency at Wave Farm. I modeled a site specific studio using my re outfitted mobile news van parked in an open field on the Wave Farm premises to focus on LEO activity and specific satellite movement of close proximity satellite orbits and satellite debris. My work involved the detailed tracking of satellite communication systems passing over the coordinates of the host location. I created a volume of “sky sessions” at coordinates NSEW and to develop a quadraphonic sonic score composed from the mapping of satellites in orbit at particular coordinates. I developed a series of recorded electronic audio and visual compositions from these satellite debris mappings.
