We started making this piece in winter, almost a year ago. We took sound recordings from a personal archive, a pile of paper, and movements scored, then filtered them to their barest outlines. It had something to do with loss, and as much to do with keeping things. Input Place is a series of rooms in sound; hours of pages; shapes half-remembered.
