sound installations

the house (for Athina Vahla / Prised Open – INSTALLATION RECORDING)
From the dance / installation at the Master Shipwright's House in Deptford. The more time passes, the more I'm impressed by Athina's concept and vision for the piece (based on Conrad's Heart of Darkness) and her audacity (to do a very limited promenade performance in the dark, dilapidated house). Health & Safety? – and so no surprise when my powerbook died two days before the première, with an hour's worth of mixes for six spaces. (It never recovered completely). This excerpt, from the two cellar spaces, is a mix of the four channels in the space and a performance recording.

kurtz (for Athina Vahla / Prised Open)
Also for The House. This was the last part of the performance – the attic. On the night of the premiere, Athina decided that the space would work better without this music. On the second night, she realised that it worked with it. (for SSSHHHHH! Ghettoblaster Ensemble – stereo downmix)
For "Streets of Asia" at Århus Festuge, Denmark 2003. Details and score at the project page.  

england expects... (nelson not nelson) (for SSSHHHHH! Ghettoblaster Ensemble – stereo downmix)
