Those who visited my bait and tackle shop project at the 2009 Three Rivers Arts Festival in Pittsburgh might have seen my fantastical fishing videos playing in the back room. I’ve added a third episode to the series. Drifting Away III is a bit more somber than the previous episodes. While making it, I was reading Camus and contemplating the absurdity of the world.
The piece was shot over two days in February after a big snowstorm at Purchase College. I made some of the sounds on an old Kurzweil synthesizer.
