A supplement to "Cathedral Scan", an audiovisual performance and full-length album by artist Blake Carrington. This book features a text on the project written by Nathaniel Sullivan, images of the original concert at Hendricks Chapel in 2009, and 12 hi-res images of cathedral plans. In the performance these plans are scanned with custom software to create unique rhythms and timbres according to each specific concrete structure.

Blake Carrington (b. 1980) operates within the spheres of the visual, sound, and performing arts. His work in all of these forms displays a minimal aesthetic and finds resonance with the graphic sign systems of architectural plans and other minimal spatial representations. Last year he completed a commission for Radio del Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid, performed in the River to River Festival in New York, and has recently been artist-in-residence at LMCC's Swing Space on Governors Island and at Haeinsa Temple in South Korea. In 2011 he received a NYSCA grant in support of his debut CD release concert at the Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in New York. He has also completed residencies at HIAP in Helsinki, Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida, and Rustines Lab in Montreal. Blake was born in Indiana and currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
