Dissonant Terrain

soundscape for immersive installation by Yandell Walton

Dissonant Terrain explores a post-natural discourse and its effects in the world where human activity continues to transform the natural environment. Through a range of digital mediums, including computer-generated images, video, sound, lighting, and sculpture, Yandell Walton critiques the complex relationship between technology, nature, and the posthuman. Dissonant Terrain is the result of Yandell's participation in the Labverde residency program, which took place in the Amazon Rainforest in September 2022.

Collaborating with Yandell, sound artist Jana Irmert, who also participated in the Labverde program in 2022, contributes to the creation of this immersive experience. Jana meticulously composes a multi-channel and directional soundscape that responds harmoniously to the moving images and lighting.
