n 2013, i was invited to tijuana and baja california to produce new audio works with the mexican artists roberto romero molina and luis ituarte. as part of my residency, i was also supplied with the materials to produce a series of visuals works. although the materials and setup offered were dramatically different than my home studio, i tend to enjoy working with limitations, and quickly developed a way of drawing using handfuls of coloured pencils, tea bags, tea stains, and other simple materials to form multi-threaded lines and marks. these drawings began to resemble circuit diagrams, with particles and waves of current moving back and forth.

when i returned to home to canada, i sent one of these drawings* to lee noyes as a compositional proposition. lee’s fantastic realization of the visual score, along with my own contribution, were combined to form the album particles & waves - lance austin olsen
