A Petal Fell is an attempt at putting what remains now as only the memory of a particular place and time, to sound. this album documents specific moments and revelations that I experienced while living in the Feng Tai district of Beijing in 2007 / 2008. many of these experiences have been abstracted by memory and some remain as clear as the day they occurred. these sound pieces, unlike words or photographs, reflect the desire to document that part of my life in a way that leaves the door open for interpretation and eventual distortion. Like a flower, a memory blossoms and becomes most beautiful, before withering and drying and then separating from its source of life.
