Clay Gold's multi-channel sound pieces use location recording, synthesis, Foley, worldizing and spot effects within a live performance context and are part of an exploration into actively collected, suppressed and promoted opinion; or censorship and propaganda.
Clay Gold is also working with Laura Moody from The Elysian Quartet on a theatre performance/installation project called 'The Parallelist'.
