Living, Dreaming, Going
2011

Living, Dreaming, Going is a 4:40 sound piece by Jim Ricks which explores notions of nostalgia and fantasy, as well as how the Barthian conception of mythology is developed through appropriated popular culture.  It consists of more than 25 songs that contain both California in the title and lyrics. Everything except the vocals singing 'California' were removed and what remained of all the songs was layered to produce Living, Dreaming, Going.
