Vault mixtape, a 35min video performance piece created by the Vault team released with a digital score composed by Nicholas Serrambana, sound designer of Vault. The psychoacoustic video mixtape sculpted for the north end of Hartford’s John C Clark Elementary is the subconscious imprint of an abandoned institution. Ambience and the intelligible are unraveled by the epistemology of an object that is permanently closed, where time and memory bypass song form for stagnation. Hissing, popping, percolation, and the sigh of a permanently silent structure are expressed seemingly via ghost sounds of children, as shrieking, and as erosion. Cumulatively the project sonically and visually addresses the ethics of commodified urban decay, the blatant segregation and environmental racism of city space, the question of "poverty porn," the jurisprudential/budgetary schisms that prevent the explicitly illegal conditions in these buildings from being properly persecuted, and, more philosophically, the idea of architectures that do not have the privilege of being brutalist by choice. The video consists of choreography and performance by Arien Wilkerson with video from David Norori, image/text by Marsia Willamson, Kevin Hernandez Rosa, Nicholas Serrambana.
