Product details

Duration: 57 min.

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

Summary: 'A brief encounter: French performance poet Bernard Heidsieck works with the sound of Jas Duke's breath.

Summary: 'Ratsinkafka': A saxophone duo written to support the words of performance poet Amanda Stewart. Sandy Evans and Paul Cutlan, saxophone, with Tony Gorman. Computer-generated composition by Colin Bright.

Summary: 'Higher form of karaoke': Number 1 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'. Sounds of Ueno Park, Tokyo, are fused together into a huge and almost holy 'yakimo' choir. Written and performed by Tony Barrell.

Broadcast on The Listening Room, ABC Classic FM, 12 March 2001.

Summary: 'Stalin': Jas Duke reads his poem 'Stalin', fragments of which feature in Colin Bright's 'Black Years - Red Years'.

Summary: 'Black years - red years': Premiered on The Listening Room, this work was awarded the Australian Composition of the Year (2000) for NSW by the Australian Music Centre. The primary sound source is the voice of the late Jas Duke. It's a piece about oppression, and living outside the Australian dream.

Non-commercial recording - for study purposes only.
