“Rare Volume” is a new work created by Filipino-American multimedia artist Christian Michael Filardo, in a flurry of creative catharsis. Processing trauma reinvigorated by a global pandemic, Filardo reached tape loops of field recordings – some new, some getting on to five years old, all from an ‘old world’ however – along with snippets from minimalist piano recordings and other compositions from famous composers.

Created entirely outside of digital space, Filardo processed the tape loops spontaneously into something new, turning recordings from New Mexico and Virginia into an intimate reflection on longing – “the end of relationships, and the forging of new ones.” Piano notes, society’s hum, and external rustlings gather and congeal into a work similar to Filardo’s photography in its longing eye on to the world. None of this digital release was constructed digitally. Only bounced to computer, then mastered by Angelo Harmsworth.
