This is a version of the set I did at Soundfjord for World Listening Day 2011. As usual, there’s not much cross-fading just abrupt edits and some layering for transitions. The set is book-ended by two recent pieces of mine, based on field recordings, which make use of similar techniques.
(time Â /Â track)
00:00Â /Â States of Play.
What I like about listening to records is you can jump around. With thanks to Robert Curgenven for blank dubplates and Bill Thompson for his electric guitar.
08:47Â /Â Call to prayer, Beirut.
Recorded on the Corniche Beirut with the sea on the left, the road on the right.
11:24Â /Â Dog, frogs, voices, Wszerzecz.
This sounds like it’s been subtly composed of disparate elements but was actually just a mixture of timing and luck. Released on the framework250 CD as Three.
18:23Â /Â Birdsong, Sandwick.
On an unusually still summer’s day in Shetland.
20:00Â /Â Le Mans, 3am.
Recording some wildtracks for a promo film and one of the mechanics grabs the reporter mic from my bag…
24:16Â /Â Train station, Kiev.
Trying to get tickets to Odessa for new year’s eve.
25:58Â /Â Singer warming up, Stockholm.
28:46Â /Â Gate in the wind, Sandwick.
This is possibly getting a bit long in the tooth but I like it.
31:49Â /Â Garden party, Garikula.
People, wine, singing, animals.
36:28Â /Â Musical escalator, Kiev.
38:42Â /Â Storm, London.
47:44Â /Â Tourist.
