Product details

Duration: 58 min.

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

'Liturgy for a simple woman' is a sound prayer for the ordinary woman and the rituals and routines of her daily life.

'Pressures of the unspeakable', winner of the Rai Prize at the 1992 Prix Italia, began with a concept of the "screamscape". "Once given voice, the chorus of screams through the soundscape of a given region shapes and discloses its identity in condensed and crystallised ways; the screamscape is above all a nervous system, and no two systems feel (or sound) exactly alike" (Whitehead).

Non-commercial recording. For study purposes only.

Broadcast on "The Listening Room" on ABC Classic FM on 21 July 1997.
