Originally from New Jersey, Kate visited the desert 22 years ago. On the next visit, she arrived in the dark and what she woke up to the next morning convinced her to stay. In this episode, Kate talks about the influence the Wonder Valley area has on her work as a Sound Artist, the process of purchasing land in a tax sale auction and keeping track of the days of the week by when the local watering hole is open. Inspired sonically by the spaces she is in for the work that she makes. She has found the silence and desolation has transformed her life.
