DSC06083 - Version 3

Listen to recording of ambient and performed sounds in a public place.

I am working with-non verbal vocalisations, involving groups of performers. Traditionally, vocal performances are recorded in environments in which the only sounds that interrupt the ‘silence’ are those designed to accompany the vocalists. By contrast, my group performs in random public environments where, by definition, we cannot exert any control over the ambient sounds. When you stop to listen, our environment is a rich array of beautiful, enigmatic and evocative noises. It is into this that we randomly perform, capturing the immediate acoustic qualities of the landscape of which we are a part.
