Nisyros 20:44
Subduction 09:23


Early spring on the volcanic island of Nisyros, Greece: Bees swarm over almond trees on the caldera's edge. On the fertile crater soil, livestock graze. Mud pits burble and sulfur vents puff out thick vapor clouds. Solitary men ring the bells, call to their animals, and sing to themselves. Scops owls and bats call into the night.

"This volcano music is so good, we even want to listen to it during a heat wave. From grazing sheep to subterranean rumbles, Moxley’s field recordings are a geographical audio-biopic featuring a cast of compelling characters." (A Closer Listen, Recommendation List)

Alyssa Moxley is an artist that works with sound, listening, memory, and environment. Her works include field recording, musical composition, film sound design, live improvised performance, interactive sculpture and sonic interventions in public space.
