EBow and Festival Launch

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.

Today’s sound was heard during the launch event of Audiograft 2011, during which Paul Whitty inserted an EBow into the piano on the top floor of the foyer, in a performance. This caused the strings inside the piano to resonate. People talking, neighbouring works and people traversing the stairs and corridors in the building may also be heard.

19.37 …gathering in the gallery

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.
