Phonography Austin is a new organization dedicated to exploring phonography (the creation and presentation of field recordings as art objects) and acoustic ecology (the study of the effects of the acoustic environment on those living within it).
Laura Brackney is currently musically focused on composing, teaching, improvising with Leaf Chimes, and studying Javanese relational structures.
Josh Ronsen‘s (brekekekexkoaxkoax) activites span a variety of different creative media (e.g. writing, visual art, performance art, comic strips, zines, acting and collecting cat purrs), as well as different genres within those parent media. Some of his many involvements include the audio project brekekekekexkoaxkoax, the sound culture magazine Monk Mink Pink Punk, LSJ, and the Tiny Art Exchange.
Alex Keller and Sean O’Neill have in collaborated in performance and installation pieces since 2015. Using field recordings, vintage telephone test equipment, magnetic oscillators, light and space, their work has addressed the agents and artifacts of change in the urban and acoustic realms. In 2017, they will release an LP called Kruos on the Elevator Bath label, and a CD called LCLX on the Mimeomeme label.
