I’m really delighted that on 18th August 2019 my track Wave Shift is first up in the new season of Each Morning of the World, a soundscape project produced by Stéphane Marin in France .The digital album is called South Asia PhoNographic Mornings. One new track will be broadcast each week over 20 weeks until the final album is released in December. Broadcast details can be found through the Bandcamp link below.
Many thanks indeed to Stéphane for inviting me to contribute the track and also the visual artwork for the album cover/track. I also recorded the voice intro and outro for the season’s radio broadcast each week.
This version of Wave Shift is a re-working of a longer piece originally produced as part of an installation following a UZ Arts Residency at Sura Medura in Sri Lanka.
To listen to all the tracks on the digital album please go to Each Morning of the World Bandcamp. All donations for downloading and streaming go to the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE).
Zoë Strachan and I created Rays & Correlations for a live broadcast from the Radiophrenia studio on 15th May 2019. This is our third collaborative radio artwork. Previous works are In Transit and Static Flux. Static Flux was also originally performed as a live broadcast on Radiophrenia and then selected for a Spoken Word live performance at Hidden Door Festival 2018 in Edinburgh.
Inspired by the patterns of cosmic ray interactions in a cloud chamber, we imagine the myriad signals and attempts at communication that might enter a sphere and intersect, cluster, miss or fade away. Rays & Correlations is a voice-focused improvised performance with layers of interactive soundscape. The listener is invited to find a thread to hold onto amid interweaving sparse and dense streams of words and evocations – and to decide whether the sound space is literal, as inside a kind of radome, or metaphorical – representing any individual consciousness trying to make sense of human connection.
…”Downstairs in the Old Fruitmarket, Scottish vocalist Nichola Scrutton breathed deeply into a mic, the sounds mirrored by clarinettist Alex South across the room. In between, the audience were caught in a dexterous layering of breath that felt like the wash and roll of the sea.”…
