Product details

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

Summary: 'Backburn': One of The Listening Room 'Earclips'.Alison Clouston and Peter Boyd joined their local Wollondilly Fire Brigade (NSW) as volunteers and later made a series of recordings of the crew and volunteers, and their Earclip is a metaphorical soundscape of the back-burning process during a bush fire. The rumble of the fire-pump was recorded live and the inferno of flames is suggested in the roar of wind and spit through a saxophone.

Summary: 'The ears outside my listening room': A radiophonic oral history of Australia produced during the composer's Australia Council New Media Residency with The Listening Room. The program takes a snapshot of our country, our people, our time, our diversity and our culture. It explores our multicultural identity in terms of languages spoken within Australian homes. Original music by Colin Black (guitars and synthesizers). Also the Elektra String Quartet, Jeremy Barnett (vibraphone), Emile Nelson (bass) and Robbie Siracusa (drums). Winner of the Prix Italia 2003 category of Radio Music - Composed Work 2003. This program was broadcast again on 15 December 2003, the last broadcast of The Listening Room.

Summary: 'Hydrogen': A musical representation of nature's fundamental element - hydrogen.
