Dale Gorfinkel is a multi-instrumentalist, improvisor, instrument creator, installation artist, educator, and community builder. His work aims to reflect an awareness of the dynamic nature of culture & the value of listening as a mode of knowing people & places. He is interested in finding fresh ways of presenting and making music, bringing creative communities together & shifting perceived boundaries of scenes, styles & artforms.
His first solo release reflects this diversity of interests and approaches. He often uses common materials to create unexpected & immersive sonic environments. Some installations seek to reframe technology through the intersection of electro/acoustic and new/old mediums. Some installations illuminate acoustic phenomena and are effected by solar & wind activity. Many works also welcome a tactile interactivity especially popular with children. He's recently been playing around with footpumps, garden irrigation and balloons.."-splitrec
