Rhodri Davies talking about quiet in the “Concept as Score” Concert

As per this post and in anticipation of the forthcoming Audiograft 2012 festival, during each day in February 2011, a recording created during Audiograft 2011 will be played here as a Sound Diary entry. The whole series will act like an album of sonic snapshots from the festival; though without frames, without borders, and filled with the overspilling sounds of the surrounding world.

Here we hear Rhodri Davies talking about his experience of quietness and focus amongst the audience the “Concept as Score” Concert in the Holywell Music Room earlier in the festival programme. Rhodri Davies and Max Eastley were preparing for their performance at Modern Art Oxford that evening, and Felicity Ford was interviewing them about that when Davies offered this insight into that Concert (excerpts here here and here). While Davies and Eastley talk, the sounds of the experimental DJ performance – “Sh*T! I can DJ” taking place upstairs at Modern Art Oxford can be heard from the floor above.

A lone piano note

The whole series will act like an album of sonic snapshots from the festival; though without frames, without borders, and filled with the overspilling sounds of the surrounding world.

Today’s sound was recorded backstage at the Holywell Concert Hall. It features white noise, the sounds of folks moving about in the creaky building, foosteps, and the sound of a lone piano note.
