Greetings From Here: Audio Postcards in Transition is an intentionally lo-fi epistolary record by text-sound artist Pauline Gloss that explores her relationship to trans-identity, mental illness, heartbreak, and a new city. Each card, nine in total, is addressed to an individual, named correspondent. Following the completion of the record, friend and collaborator, Nicolas Bermeo went back to create a visual component to compliment Gloss’s visceral and intimate personal geography in time.
Pauline Gloss is a writer and literary sound-artist based in Los Angeles working in dialogue with the Text-Sound tradition. Her language-sound work attempts to dramatize and expand language in its timbral, rhythmic, textural, and meaning-making dimensions. Her current body of work is concerned with using highly reduced language to develop larger emotional and conceptual architectures whose stability is always in question.
Pauline runs Spoken Records, a label specializing in the release of work in the Text-Sound tradition. She has been written about favorably in art and music publications and has performed or had work shown at institutions including MoCA Geffen, Cal Arts, Poetic Research Bureau and Molasses Books. www.paulinegloss.com
