Talk to sleep: Another imaginary conversation with a possible person, this time an amateur forester. These feature programs subvert the radio talk format.
A mechanical echo for 20,000 radios: A creative response by a visiting American sound artist to The Bridge, a trans-national art event held in different cities around the world. In 1998 'The Bridge: a Construction in Process' was held in Melbourne. This sound sculpture comprises the sounds of hundreds of artists working together on the project.
Revolutions in the sun: Looking back on revolutionary art earlier in the 20th century, the composer observes its epic quality, its idealist spirit and its dedication to the progress of the masses. Ion Pearce has created an ironical musical composition that poses questions about artistic life and practice in an economic rationalist regime, the workers' paradise.
