‘aural documents #1’ – Reviewed in ATTN:Magazine

Everything about aural documents #1 is clean and exact; a precise negotiation of noise, time, space and silence, architecturally arranged into a structure of symmetry, right angles and impeccable counterbalance. The hand of the composer is barely present, intervening at the behest of necessity rather than preference, instigating switches in polarity rather than nudges of increment. Vivid and irrefutable.

Together We Can – Brunel University Sonic Garden @ Chelsea Flower Show

The music department at Brunel University London are involved with a cool project, that I’m lucky enough to be helping out on. Colin Riley and Carl Faia are leading us in a collaborating with the Papworth Trust called Together We Can – a sonic garden that’s being presented at the Chelsea Flower Show next month, with Dame Evelyn Glennie joining us for a one-off performance at the show. 
We’re using hydrophones, contact microphones, 10-channel sound, and Max/MSP to create a long-form installation. This weekend we’re off to Lincolnshire to test our work on a prototype of the garden. I’ll be filming it all, and sharing some video next week.

The team is:
•Colin Riley
•Carl Faia
•Phil Maguire
•Ardeshir Mostajeran
•Eleanor Brooks
•Dan Christović
•Graeme Shaw
•Matt Collins
•Reuben Abbott
