Shelter (2004) — radiophonic music Jacqui Rutten

Product details

Duration: 64 min.

Summary: 'And again': An aural exploration of our varying relationships with routine, weaving natural sounds, voice and music through the patterning of a world and life. Camilla Maling is a young dancer and radio program maker. During a producer exchange between Radio New Zealand and the ABC, she found herself in Sydney trying to establish a new routine, seeking a place to dance, to practice yoga. She created a map of places and the journeys in between.

Summary: 'Shelter': A radiophonic composition exploring issues of home and homelessness. The housing crisis is not specific to cities, and the work includes a train journey to the Dandenong Ranges an hour out of Melbourne. Lyrebird recordings from the area introduce a stylised musical context to life in a caravan. In another moment, layers of spoken text about the importance of place within indigenous culture take on a sense of song, following the tradition of early land rights submissions, which incorporated music and dance. Similarly, professional opinion on the issues is humanised through presentation in a musical context. Original music by Jacqui Rutten, with Shane Charles on didgeridoo. Production: Jacqui Rutten and Jim Atkins.

Non-commercial recording. For study purposes only.

Acoustic artwork broadcast on ABC Radio National's Sunday Night program, 5 September 2004. CD also includes a reading of the short story of the week.
