Using synthesizers, field recordings, musical instruments, ceramics, stones, and everyday objects in combination with motors and sensors, Jesse McFadden creates a dynamic bricolage of work that is equal parts sculptural, kinetic, and sonic.
Playing into both humankind’s socialized and instinctual perceptions of sound, Jesse alludes to feelings of grief, trauma, and healing through the layering of sounds coming from the sculptural systems playing together as an ensemble. New American Gothic addresses our perceptions of the passing of time and natural change, and the processing of and reconciliation with loss of love and life. Jesse highlights materials from or pertaining to the earth or ground including clay, stones, and more.
