Amdt, John – “Field Recordings From The Great Salt Lake Desert” – [Gallery 400]
Under the auspices of the ever so amazing Center for Land Use Interpretation, John Arndt took part in a residency at Wendover Airfield, Utah. Exploring and recording the region from “the Nevada border to Salt Lake City, and north almost to Idaho and south to the Dugway Proving Grounds”, Arndt has captured a unique and diverse collection of sounds, some haunting, others mundane, all interesting in their recognizability and yet uniqueness and strangeness. The desert is a weird place. Play loud.
