BKDN WKBK #3: Sonic Meditations: Immersive Ecological Entanglement

By: Brett Bloom
Publisher: Auburn, IN: Breakdown Break Down Press, 2017
Pages: 40
Dimensions: 4.25” x 5.5”
Cover: paperback
Binding: staple bound
Process: Risograph
Color: five color
Edition Size: open
ISBN: none

The third BKDN BKDN workbook is for facilitating Deep Listening sonic meditations with others to individually and collectively experience immersive ecological entanglement. The publication is a tool for sinking in to relationships you have with the world around you, helping to bypass the ways you have been taught to limit or ignore the subtleties of the more-than-human world you are immersed in. This workbook has been developed over the past decade through many experiments in Deep Listening sessions that I have facilitated. Since first being exposed to Deep Listening, I was interested in how it could create empathies with the environment that I was not capable of before.

Petro-Subjectivity:
De-Industrializing Our Sense of Self

By: Brett Bloom
Publisher: Ft. Wayne, IN: Breakdown Break Down Press, 2015
Pages: 108
Dimensions: 3.93” x 5.5”
Cover: semi-hard
Binding: perfect bound
Process: offset
Color: duotone
Edition Size: 800
ISBN: 978-1-4951-5922-0

This is the first publication by Breakdown Break Down Press. It is a critical reflection on the ways in which oil shapes our experiences of the world and what we can do to start to build up the cultural responses and practices that will help us undo this condition.

Bloom’s project is therefore part of a growing trend in environmental thought that seeks to ground environmental action in a commitment to contemplative practice, a discipline of attention to the natural world, even as we are witnessing its degradation. It is not just a way of thinking about things, but a shift to our way of perceiving that must be consciously and painstakingly cultivated
—Samantha Clark, review of "Petro-Subjectivity" for EcoArtScotland

Publishing Imprint

This publishing initiative is a joint effort between Brett Bloom and Nuno Sacramento to make books, print and digital, that address climate breakdown from an emergent sensibility we see coming from all over the planet. We will publish our own essays as well as commission texts by other writers. We will translate texts from other languages by powerful thinkers around ecological issues that are currently unavailable in English.
