Recording Memory | presentation and sound recordings
Richard Lerman Division of Humanities, Arts & Cultural Studies | Arizona State University
Since the 1980s, Richard Lerman has used self-built microphones to gather audio at the sites of human rights violations. He has recorded audio from extant structures, objects and plants at this site and has occasionally constructed site-specific windharps or other structures as well. The recordings are often edited and give a sense of the import of each place while also providing a sonic memory for the listeners. As part of his presentation, Lerman will play pieces recorded at Auschwitz, Dachau and Manzanar.
