“It pays my way and it corrodes my soul”

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.

This is a recording of Paul Whitty and Stephen Cornford performing “it pays my way and it corrodes my soul” at Modern Art Oxford during Audiograft 2011. You can hear the audience and the acoustics of the space very faintly in the background, underneath the amplified sounds from the performance which filled the room.

20.07 …the reels begin to roll

On a recent visit to Berlin to perform it pays my way and it corrodes my soul with Stephen Cornford at LEAP, I made these recordings. Whenever I could I stopped and recorded my situation from the raucous queue outside a nightclub in Oxford to the escalators at Stansted and a Mexican dinner in Berlin. The recordings were made using an Edirol R-09HR.

Extra context here.
