sound art / music / field recordings / vibroacoustic / deep listening

Hi-fi/lo-fi field recordings and sample-based intuitive improvisation, textured commentaries, deep vibrations and perceptual remixes.





As collaborators, artists Haydeé Jiménez and Leah Vanessa Bachar work to dissect embodiment and surveillance / anti-surveillance in the first installment of Area Zero -  a project seeking to develop a collective practice of processing broader socio-political issues at a personal, intuitive, and physical level. Experimenting with the notion of affected environments, their work considers languages of resistance, deconstruction in movement, healing in protest, and soundscapes in noise.

Leah Bachar is a founding member of the Al Limite, a collective of artists dedicated to creating performances, workshops, community building, direct action to highlight cross-border exchanges in various geographical areas. 

AERA ZER︎ Radio

Area Zero radio is the title of the 1-hour live recording that continues this exploration in collective processing. Drawing from field recordings, written text, and the immaterial, the program is a digest, a reflection, and curation of artifacts originating in a week-long experimental study as part of the TACmusic Commission for Spring of 2024. Area Zero radio (vol.1) was recorded live at Cone Shape Top in Oakland and aired to listeners in local and extended transborder communities via nettnett radio and other collaborating programs. Leah and Haydeé began working with live recording formats for internet radio as co founders of nettnett radio - - at the onset of the covid-19 pandemic which forced the temporary closure of nettnett space in Tijuana, the artist-run space they began collaborating in since its founding in 2016.
