FROM THE MIDDLE OF A CLEARING, BY HOLLAND HOPSON
Holland Hopson is a sound and media artist, composer and improviser. A multi-instrumentalist, he usually performs on clawhammer banjo and electronics. Holland often augments his instruments with custom-designed sensor interfaces and performs with his own highly responsive, interactive computer programs. His media art has been exhibited in the US, UK and Korea and is in the collections of the University of Washington and RISD, among others. Holland’s most recent recording is a collaboration with poet Hank Lazer: field recordings of mind in morning.
