 FIND ME (2018), Audio art installation (12:1 speakers, 25-min loop) | Christina Campanella (Composer, Sound Artist) • Jim Dawson (Sound Designer, Writer)  Excerpt 06:42 - from showings at HERE Arts Center, March 2018  Video Documentation and Editing by Damian Calvo  We turned HERE’s subterranean theater into a darkened gallery space and built a false wall where seating risers would have been in order to have 2 opposing walls for Kathy Rugh’s projections. The 12:1 speaker system encircles the audience on 3-tiers: near the ceiling, at ear height and on the floor - allowing us to move score elements from speaker to speaker in a variety of patterns and shapes. The single sound of keys locking a door ricochets between three speakers spread out across the room. The sound of footsteps climbing a long stairwell seems to ascend through the ceiling to another plane, deployed in a spiral pattern from speaker to speaker in a steady flow over the whole system. The song seems to position the listener within the belly of the baritone guitar and throat of the vocalist; which later expands to a sense of full surround, engulfing them in the strains of a live orchestra. Audiences were free to listen from a fixed position or move throughout the space.  Credits: Kathy Rugh (Projections) • Ayumu "Poe" Saegusa (Light) • Joe Diebes (Guitar) • Stephanie Fleischmann (Song Lyrics) • Christina Campanella (voice, keyboards, programming)  FIND ME was funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature via NYSCA's Independent Artist Commission in Film, Media, and New Technologies.

 Lighthouse 40°N, 73°W (2015) - Audio art installation  Christina Campanella (Composer, Sound Artist) Jim Dawson (Sound Designer)  Excerpts from 2 Showings: 1) ( 00:00 - 03:16 ) at HERE Arts Center Another use of HERE’s subterranean theater as a gallery, but with disused lighting instruments left hung and exposed. Expanded stereo version of the score broadcast over radio waves. Audience given wireless circumaural headphones, placing them at the center of the mix allowing them to move freely. Lights on the headphones demarcating each person’s location, path & facing, accented the performative aspect of their movements (see ‘moving light’ section of work sample), shifting focal point to audience itself. Visual Artist Christine Sciulli designed projections for ceiling.  2) ( 03:17 - 05:13 ) at NYEAF Govs Island This version explored the narrative residue found in disused architectural spaces. A subwoofer in the room augmented the bass drones; a vintage University MA-25 horn driver hidden in the ceiling was activated at the end of each loop, as a narrated foot-journey seems to transport the listener out of the headphones and up to a different plane somewhere above their physical location.  LIGHTHOUSE was funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature via NYSCA's Independent Artist Commission in Film, Media, and New Technologies.

INSTRUCTIONS ON PARTING, 5 minute trailer“Instructions on Parting”, a film for which Jim designed the sound, weaves breathtaking artistic footage with cinema verite to tell an elegiac story about transformation, grief, and the essential nature of the collective human journey. By chronicling with her camera to interrogate loss, the filmmaker leads us to a bold and daring acceptance of our inevitable end.Visit the website: on-parting.com
CATHY AT WAR trailerCathy at War, a film Jim designed sound for, addresses the work and life of Catherine Leroy, the greatest female photographer of the Vietnam War. Told through her photographs and letters written to her parents, it is an intimate meditation on war and features interviews with some of the world's most famous photojournalists, including David Douglas Duncan and Don McCullin.​
Fixer: The Taking of Ajmal Naqshbandi Part 1/6The documentary focuses on the 2007 kidnapping and murder of a 24-year-old Afghan who was hired by foreign journalists to help gather news stories. Ajmal Naqshbandi and an Italian reporter were captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan, but while the journalist was spared, he was killed. Interweaving footage of Ajmal on assignment with an American journalist six months before his abduction, this 2009 Tribeca Film Festival winner shows how Ajmal's friends, family and fellow abductee try to make sense of his murder.
