Product details

Duration: 64 min.

Summary: 'Unstill life': Recorded at her home in the Southern Highlands of NSW, this is a portrait of a spirited writer and thinker. With Barbara Blackman and the voices of friends, including her husband Marcel Veldhoven. Includes performance of Elena Kats-Chernin's 'Schubert blues'. Performers: Alan Alexander (reader), Susan Alexander (reader), Adam Bowen (piano), Lisa Moore (piano).

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.

Non-commercial recording. For study purposes only.

Acoustic artwork broadcast on ABC Radio National's Sunday Night program, 29 February 2004. CD also includes a reading of the short story of the week.
