pt. 1 (Fog in Air) Inside the clouds: gray emptiness for miles, ice patterns under feet. Internal heat left over from the river-- exhale fog in air (fog in air)
pt. 2 (Knowing pt. 2) around what’s not me. You’ll never know what I mean. What heat? Self-betrayal then detachment. Burning knowledge then acceptance.
pt. 3 (Replica) I’ve confirmed it, so back to the city I go, replica born from the snow. Gaba version of me, mirror self
pt. 4 (Birdsong) walking around saying what’s expected until that fog rolls in over the mountain (again) until the world is distant and clouds meet sea-- until the world is indifferent, that birdsong: “free”. When city lights fade-- well, I like to dream.

“Fog Storm Pts. 1-4” was originally the audio component of the Fog Storm installation by Jesse Keating and Kyle Bates:

Fog Storm

A collaborative sound and video installation.

Drowse - Kyle Bates
Kremdar - Jesse Keating

This installation showcases four found objects that have been re-engineered into interactive sculptural instruments. The artists use these objects to create sounds and explore their natural surroundings. All music has been created by the artists and was recorded in Skagaströnd using the sculptures, a field recorder, and the computer. Video projections recorded while at living NES Artist Residency around certain regions of desolate Northern Iceland.

Fog Storm plays with tangible and digital deconstruction of the natural world in the Anthropocene.

“Prefaldur Strengur”
Burnt log, metal, wire, nails

Fence post, metal, spring, nails

2x4’s, metal, wire, nails, tape

“Greed Bucket”
Texaco oil drum, springs, wire


released July 25, 2018

Most sounds sourced and manipulated from late night drones performed by Jesse Keating and Kyle Bates in a giant converted walk-in freezer at NES Artist Residency in Skagaströnd, Iceland in April, 2018. Fog Storm drones created with guitar pedals and found-object sculptural instruments built by the artists.

“Fog Storm Pts. 1-3” composed by Kyle Bates in April and May, 2018
“Pt. 4 (Birdsong)”, composed by Jesse Keating and Kyle Bates in April, 2018.
