An Audio Introduction to Olivia Block 

Source: The Wire.

In her interview with Bill Meyer in The Wire 454, Chicago based artist Olivia Block describes the long and diverse journey she’s taken through her work with sound. She recalls her early experience of recording indie rock demos and four-track experimentation, to writing orchestral scores and collecting found audio. Most recently Block has used hallucinogenics in order to access the hidden experiences of people and animals, and allowed her revelations to inform her compositions on her latest release Innocent Passage In The Territorial Sea. Here, Block provides an audio accompaniment to the interview, choosing significant tracks from her own archive.
