From the Series Field Recordings
20 min 33 sec, loop
Sara Ludy’s WARZONE, a field recording in Second Life, is an audio composition of the artist’s wanderings through a virtual area known for melee combat simulations. Removing visual cues, Ludy creates a visceral experience–one where the viewer must listen and imagine a world outside their own. Depicting an alien world of relentless fighting, the recording contemplates the remnants of places unseen as the artist seeks a peaceful location away from battle sounds.
