Summary: 'The wedding photograph': A playful radiophonic work made during a workshop held with renowned radiophonic artist, Kaye Mortley. Participants included seven ABC and non-ABC radio producers, performers, students and sound engineers. Starting from scratch, recordings were gathered on location and in the studio, over two weeks. The result is an aural portrait of the ambivalences of the wedding that often show through in the looks on the faces of the participants - despite the common presence of frock, cake, flowers. In the background, an Italian wedding echoes through the aural space. Performers: Kate Bochner, Lucia Barera, Brent Clough, Sherre DeLys, Sophea Lerner, Russell Stapleton, Gretchen Miller.
