I am very pleased to have a feature in BOMB Magazine (NYC), online now! The feature is part of an ongoing series that asks artists to present a field recording piece with an accompanying text and images which give context to the work. I selected the recording Lisboa, June 2013 for this special feature, which you can read and listen to here.

How surreal to see oneself on the cover of a magazine! I am very pleased to be the feature cover artist for the Summer issue of Canadian magazine Musicworks.
