Biography

Loren Chasse considers the sonus of natural and unnatural settings, situations, and found objects a spirited material that may be transported, mutated and reintegrated under new conditions to yield hybrid apparitions of spaces, things and moments. The microphone as an extended ear composes as it moves through a space, recognizing various threshholds and sites where ambient sounds blur and begin to detach from their sources. Loren’s recorded work and performances often incorporate electronic noises—hums, whirs, sputters and drones—which emulate sounds that occur in nature. The combination of such objects as motors, clocks and strobe lights with materials such as stones, branches, gravel, sand and leaves creates an atmosphere of fantasy, something familiar yet unnameable, neither here nor there.

Loren Chasse is Director of Education with the sound arts collective 23five and teaches in the San Francisco School District. He works with children to develop their sense of creative listening, often leading ‘sonic hikes’ along the California coast in addition to workshops in the classroom. Additionally, Loren records and performs with the groups idBattery , Thuja, Coelacanth and The Blithe Sons .
