I have recently started drawing each day with ink and pen on a5 paper. Feeling at a bit of a block with my other main project, I decided to turn to other interests. These drawings are a way for me to experiment with and improve my technical abilities with ink. The theme of the drawing at the moment is the feeling and experience of 'doom'.

The scores from 'Singing to the Seaweed' from 'Mukry Horizons' in my previous post need be stripped of the sound wave, its too technical, too distracting, the sound waves give too much away. Locating the work, with a photo perhaps could be something that would be more appropriate.
These are squished and rough, ideally, they would be printed in large format, these have been scanned in and collaged on photoshop

I slowed down the recording of a blizzard in Greenland from 5mins to 25mins and drew with ink on paper, the marks are an attempt at capturing the sounds and at some points interpreting them. At times I was drawing with the snowstorm, it was performative.
Listen to the sound here: https://static.wixstatic.com/mp3/d4db6f_65a2546f4b31418a8abfd4e666bbe8a4.mp3
The listening practice went like this:
Listen to the recording at full speed
Listen to the recording at an extremely low speed x2
Decide on a material/method that would best represent that sound
Listen to the recording and respond interpret the sound
2 x drawings, both ink of paper 420 x 594mm, photos here are of the two works and close up on details
