FELDSPAR FORD MAVERICK is a soundtrack to a one-way trek into the great American desert. Grandiose and vacant, radio waves crossing thousands of miles, broken car of the average man, the horizontal and the vertical, animals caught in antithesis, and frequencies for the body alone; the radio won't turn off, nor does it work anymore. Some records should be played LOUD and this is one.

Shawn Edward Hansen, a native of Kansas, is an artist, musician, and piano technician who has returned home after living in Brooklyn and Boston. His main instruments include saxophone, organ, piano, analog synthesizer (EMS Synthi), and his current travel set-up called the sonic field journal. Practicing his own style of Great Plains hermetic art known as Tangential Assertivism, he performs with Neal Wilson as A Pairing, Jaime Fennelly (Mind over Mirrors) and Chris Forsyth as Phantom Limb & Bison, and Chris Heenan as Open Aspects (Berlin, Germany). Tangential Assertivism focuses on the practice of insisting on the relationship between disparate objects or thoughts by placing them within close proximity spatially or temporally. Shawn is also the artistic director of KJEA radio, a transmitted conceptual space which had its first broadcast in 1984. He studied composition, performance, and sound art for an MFA with Richard Teitelbaum, Pauline Oliveros, George Lewis, and Maryanne Amacher in NY at Bard/Milton Avery in 2001. Future projects include a transmitted dark sky sound art tour with Chris Heenan, a series of sleeping bag concerts with Million Brazillions synth artist, Sam Jones, and a new recording project with Chris Forsyth's Solar Motel Band.
