Site Nonsite is a project researching and documenting a connection to place. The site is the source, a place rich with scattered information and experiences; the nonsite is the resulting document, a multimedia abstraction of that place. (These guiding thoughts are adapted from land artist Robert Smithson’s 1968 Theory of Non-Sites .)
Full track notes and location data will be available to read here soon. If you can't wait, beautiful PDFs are bundled with the Bandcamp download, available immediately. Printed material is also bundled with the special edition cassette.
