Pedestrian Deposit
The collaborative work of Jonathan Borges and Shannon Kennedy of Pedestrian Deposit could be described as highly composed, often abstract sound textures combined to create dynamic experimental music that draws on the duo’s widely contrasting auditory obsessions. Borges’ use of crude yet disciplined electronics, tape loops, field recordings, and controlled feedback manipulation contrasts against Shannon’s use of self-designed stringed instruments, bowing techniques and amplified wood and metal, resulting in music that is both raw and refined. Pedestrian Deposit bears elements of electro-acoustic sound, musique concrete, classical, industrial and harsh noise, but cannot be confined to any one genre.

Jonathan Borges began Pedestrian Deposit in the Winter of 2000, with the concept of combining layers of electronic sound with no pre-determined relation to one another until mixed. The project slowly evolved to incorporate elements and hybrids of harsh noise, tape collage, field recordings and ambient music with a focus on extreme contrast, resulting in a prolific few years of rich and dynamic compositions on such labels as Hospital Productions, Hanson Records, and Borges’ own Monorail Trespassing label, to name a few.

After a two-year hiatus, PD returned in the fall of 2008 with the addition of multi-instrumentalist and visual artist Shannon Kennedy; and her elements of cello, violin and amplified, bowed and manipulated objects. They have consistently toured the United States nearly every year since, placing an emphasis on the development and evolution of physical, psychological and organic live performance.

PD has appeared at such events as the 2009 No Fun Fest in Brooklyn, New York; the 2010 ’Activating The Medium’ festival in San Francisco, CA; the 2013 Milwaukee Noise Festival in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; the 2014 and 2015 Ende Tymes festivals in Brooklyn, NY; the 2015 LUFF festival in Lausanne, Switzerland; and the 2016 Click Festival in Helsingør, Denmark — in addition to innumerable venues, galleries, halls, bars and makeshift spaces in the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Pedestrian Deposit uses and endorses QSC speakers, Mogami and Monster cables, and Mackie audio mixers.
