The Sonic Shadow project was born from Satch Hoyt’s desire to share his Sonic Texts (Soundscapes) with a broader public. In fact to take his Trans National African Diasporian sonic renderings to a non specific art world audience, as a visual artist as him, Sonic Texts are solely experienced in art gallery museum exhibition contexts, this in fact is limiting the oeuvre to an often elite group, which is not his mission.The studio recorded Sonic Texts are self composed/collaged sonic narratives in conversation with, and originally designed to accompany Hoyt’s sculptural objects and installations, by remixing and editing this material with Dirk Leyers in his Berlin studio.
