Product details

Duration: 65 min.

This product forms part of the following series: Listening Room.

Summary: 'Rust': This piece is about the acoustic intersection of water, wood, iron and stone, with sounds from along the edges of Sydney Harbour recorded and sampled and fashioned into a musical soundwork.

Summary: 'Marine, a little lexicon': An electroacoustic meditation about water in the form of a lexicon of water sounds and water-related words. Composed and performed by Rodolphe Blois.

Summary: 'A pink and grey photo opportunity': Number 3 of '24 views of an inkstain on the tatami', a guided audio tour of Japan in which the familiar and the strange are twisted by an irritable postcard writer, a passionless guidebook and a 'voice in the head'. Way out of sight on the Japan Sea coast is the 'nuclear Ginza' where the beige, pink and lime green slabs of fifteen nuclear power stations hum and throb out electricity for the Kyoto-Osaka megalopolis and the bullet train system. And they make their own music. Written and performed by Tony Barrell.

Summary: 'Containers': A soundscape in three shifts composed entirely from recordings made on the wharves in Sydney Harbour and Botany Bay, on a single day in 2000. Winner of the Grand Prix for Art and Design in Sound at the 2001 Phonurgia Nova Awards in France.

Non-commercial recording. For study purposes only.

Broadcast on "The Listening Room" on ABC Classic FM, 26 March 2001.
