Post-Industrial Broadcast #1

post-industrial broadcast #1Post Industrial Broadcast #1 (9’39) portrays a fictional place or state in a process of transformation. The piece draws from a range of source materials including hydrophone and contact microphone recordings, a radio, the human voice, two-way radios, and an oil radiator and synthesized sounds. Compositionally, the piece unfolds in a wave-like structure. Subtle sounds of water emerge and recede giving a sense of constant flow, while sheets of sound – long, loosely articulated sound gestures – are agitated and interrupted by unpredictable micro-collisions and interference. A sense of forbidding is subtly teased apart by hints of human presence and moments of iridescence.

Post-Industrial Broadcast #1 was awarded the 2013 IAWM Pauline Oliveros Prize for electroacoustic media, US.
