Below is a breif summary of my artist’s talk at Eastside Projects last week. Despite forgetting the laws of thermodynamics and John Cage’s infamous quote, “music is the organisation of sound,” the talk seemed to be well received. Many thanks for those who came to hear it, and to Liz at EP and Arlene for […]


Info on the first day of the first Open Sound Group collaborative workshop can be found here. Seems silly to repost the same information, so below are a couple of photos of some of the recording experiments and techniques I used today.

This week I’ve been making some more recordings, including recording the sound of the spade as I’m digging using contact mics. The contact mics are attached to the spade with silver gaffer tape. This first set up worked ok at first but the jolting of the digging movements caused problems with the recorder, so I […]


Today I’ve been experimenting, trying out some ideas I’d already planned and playing with objects in the space. First I tested out an idea based on the technique used in Alvin Lucier’s I am Sitting in a Room, as also used by Jacob Kirkegaard in his recordings at Chernobyl. Basic idea was to record the […]


Got quite a lot done today, but mostly experimenting so not much tangible to show. Still, although it meant running for shelter I got a nice recording of the rain from within the shelter of the shed.


This Thursday at the site I was concentrating on recording rather than digging (although, incidentally, I found loads of shellac pieces on the surface close to a test hole I’d already dug). The two images above show contact mics on the metal plates used to board up the windows of the old building. I recorded the ambient sound of […]


Today in the studio I experimented with making sounds from some of the broken record pieces found on site. Initially I tried running the individual pieces over the stylus, but as the sections had only up to about 4cm of groove to play, the technique was limited. It was also difficult to keep the needle in the […]
