multichannel fixed medium

One of the pleasures of working in the multi-speaker space of the Sound-Dome has been re-discovering the life within environmental recordings, and composing new sonic spaces with combinations of these sounds, a set of whispered words recorded near an open window in summer, and processed derivations from them (mainly filterings, granulations and trajectories). These are replete with hints of meaning and images, and suggested associations with my source recordingsfrom a number of locations within the South Island of New Zealand: Cable Bay north of Nelson, Cape Foulwind near Westport, Constant Bay near Charleston, and the Hollyford Valley in Fiordland. These focused on waves and flowing water, but a squeaky gate in warm summer air also contributed to these “flying thoughts.”
