I listen (sometimes pressing record) because I enjoy it. These
recordings came from a few days spent relaxing after a workshop
residency in Australia. Why does this matter? Well, because I
believe that there always has to be part of the impulse to work
with sound that is motivated by a personal enjoyment of the
process, and this must include critical thinking about any of the
documents that are then chosen to become public in some way. The
edges represented here connect to borders between ‘art world’ and
art, between allowed and restricted, between political aims and
cultural needs, between domestic and environment.
Listening is more than hearing. It’s about letting sounds in and
that requires a letting go of control, and a recognition (for
artist, recordist, audience) of the intuitive response being a
natural part of our species.
nb. headphone listening or via audio speakers is recommended as
some of the frequencies are inaudible via computer speakers
