Infrastructure Incantation

Chrissie Caulfield takes her violin deep into the machine.

Like violin being practiced at an electrical substation, “Time Goes More Slowly” by Chrissie Caulfield initially features a healthy contrast between the cautiously bowed instrument and a mix of clank, drone, and distortion that suggests some sort of unmanned municipal outpost. As it proceeds, the violin dissipates — or enters the drone entirely — in favor of an ominous metronome and white noise. Collectively it’s a kind of infrastructure incantation.
