Ronaldo Wilson’s Natural Battles

Ronaldo Wilson

The following triptych, “Natural Battles,” provides the third of three monthly selections from a larger project, Off the Dome: Rants, Raps, and Meditations, for which I have been making live sound recordings as Solo-Dialogues since May 2010, entering into a streaming, internal conversation that vocalizes questions around race, representation, selfhood and place. Using my iPhone, I perform and document impromptu audio recordings in a variety of dynamic environments. The three separate monthly installments will get grouped by landscape, occasion, and experience. The selections from “Natural Battles” were recorded in three places, Seabright Beach in Santa Cruz, CA, the Berkshires in Stephentown, NY, and a desert suburb in Tucson, AZ, each capturing the interplay of voice and sound, activated in these distinct landscapes, while jogging, walking, and practicing yoga. —Ronaldo Wilson
