THIRD SHIFT SPOTLIGHT: Jud Crandall

Jud Crandall is an artist who explores the spatial and narrative possibilities in audio. By using a sort of sonic collage featuring found sounds, field recordings, typical instruments and live improvisation, Jud constructs the sound of a space. His work is to be listened to, and he suggests you ignore the performer and focus on the sounds.

Jud’s THIRD SHIFT project, You make a better door than a window uses the sounds of wind, radio, breath and “the consequences of environmental interruption” to “illustrate politics of disruption and negotiation”. Jud is interested in what will happen to “communication, relationships and meaning” within the new modes of perception found in You make a better door than a window. He aims to explore the opportunities that could be granted by confronting personal, domestic and governmental structures of power.
