Brandon LaBelle's Dirty Ear was recorded and produced over the last year using dirty field recordings, found sounds, sound effects, archives, and sonorous dramas. Composed as a series of micro-narratives each designed to intervene onto imagined settings or spatial locations, as a counter-sonorities.
Initially tracks 1-4 were composed for the installation work Prototypes for the mobilization and broadcast of fugitive sound shown at the Enrico Fornello Gallery, Prato.
