Cole Pierce


A long time contributor, a sonic curator, and musical journey vanguard, Cole Pierce, returns to Headphone Commute’s podcast series with his latest auditory map – LAKE ODESSA. This latest installment is more than a mix – it is an extension to Pierce’s sound installation for the Born Digital Exhibition at CAM Raleigh, which is opening today (January, 28th, 2012).

“My piece in the Born Digital Exhibition is a listening station and a limited edition run of hand-made mix CDs. There is a vague theme running throughout the music mix about obscured language and limits of human behavior.  The mix is fairly drawn out, comprised of austere ambient and abstract electronic music, with a groovy set in the middle.  I wove a variety of found sounds and field recordings throughout the mix; Buzz Aldrin on the moon, snippets of conversations about phobias, artificial christmas trees, and Brian Eno’s ideas on limit making.”
