Byron Westbrook
Precipice

Release Date: October 2, 2015

Precipice is Byron Westbrook’s first long playing record under his given name. Operating under the handle Corridors for many years, Byron has established a reputation for creating immersive multi-channel, site specific live experiences using sound, image and light. Precipice expounds upon these ideas as a collection of approaches to texture, landscape, perception of time, and the potential for sound to generate visual space. Like climbing a column which inexplicably leads to a plateau of glass, the topography above and below visible in crystal clear relief.

Byron Westbrook is a sound artist and musician based in Brooklyn, NY. He has been performing and showing installation work internationally since 2008. He has an MFA from Bard College, where he studied with Marina Rosenfeld, Marcus Schmickler and David Behrman and has been an integral part of Phill Niblock’s Experimental Intermedia Foundation since 2005.
