Brian Harnetty is a musician and artist from Ohio, and his work involves overlooked elements of sound. Many of his pieces transform found material––including field recordings, transcriptions, and historic recordings––into personal sound worlds. For the past several years, this has led to a focus on projects with specific archives, including the Berea College Appalachian Sound Archives in Kentucky, and the Sun Ra/El Saturn Creative Audio Archive in Chicago. His music and installations have been performed and shown in America and Europe. Recordings are available on Atavistic Records, Ruminance (Europe), and Scioto Records.
