Sleepscreaming Teaser


There are answers here.

This collection of dark-ambient tracks are washes of audio intended to be played in series, as a list. Likewise, the accompanying visuals are crafted to be played in sequence. They remain unceasing in their tempo and unbroken in their tone. These are true stories of true events with enduring consequences, crafted to elicit an overall sense of optimism.

We recommend playback after dark, on a quality screen. Preferably, the viewer is within one to two hours of sleep. Headphones or quality monitors for sound. Watch and listen with other humans. Match your heart rates, match your breathing. Match your screaming.

The accompanying films were created across 5 states (OR, WA, CA, NY, TN) using over 14 different cameras and multiple filmstocks.




SCARED PEOPLE NEARBY
IMPACTIST / 2019

Deep snow encourages deep sleeps. Around here, they say if you get lost, you’ll never get found. They also say there be scared people nearby, and that those same scared people are spared people.

YOUR INSIDE VOICE SOUNDS LIKE OUTSIDE
IMPACTIST / 2019

When the scream fades into a background yawp and the time dilations become wider than before, we scream. Disconnection from the landscape is all that is available. Glide across space and time unconcerned with ideas internal or external identity. Sleepscreaming is all that is available.

CARBONATED NATURALISM
IMPACTIST / 2019

Reassembled data from deep inside mitochondrial code has revealed to us a first person account of formation. Witness our common ancestors emerging from the churning bowels, worm wombs, life organs, metabolic metastasis, and branches of basic species and reproduction. From a first person view, we scream together. We always have.

DAD SAYS NO
IMPACTIST / 2019

Quick. Grab the keys and meet me out front. No speaking until we reach the gravity wells we marked last season with the dowsing rods. Get rid of your misgivings now lest the intrusive thoughts return. Dad said no, but voices say yes.
