Excerpts from the classic Money, Money, Money 7″ vinyl single by ABBA being played with a folded £5 note attached to a contact microphone and Marshall MS-4 Micro Stack. The sound quality isn’t too good (reminiscent of an old scratched 78), however you can just about make out the music!
A crisp £50 note might work better next time….?!
Ryne Barber who writes Memory Wave Transmission has provided a positive and insightful review of Spear/Streak recently released on Quagga Curious Sounds:
Just a quick reminder Urban Garden Survey (for Audio Cassette) will form part of the group sound-based exhibition Sound Yard hosted by Iklectik Art Lab in London! The work will be a series of brief site-specific field recordings captured in the Iklectik Art Lab garden; these will be recorded onto custom-made three-minute audio cassettes. I’ll predominately be utilising contact microphones to amplify the texture and crunch of leaves, twigs grass and any other natural materials encountered during my time at the garden. Along with the audio each cassette will encase small samples of the vegetation etc. used during the recording process.

An exclusive new Zebra Mu recording Inmate Scrape Shake appears on this international reel-to-reel compilation (a format first for me!) released by Nazlo Records in Russia. My contribution is created from processed and layered field recordings of dragging rusty chains and manacles across a stone floor; the entire piece was recorded in the basement/dungeons of Norwich Castle Museum. The compilation is limited to just 66 copies and features a gorgeous silk-screened handmade box and additional A4 insert.

I’m very excited to announce Urban Garden Survey (for Audio Cassette) will be a new site-specific sound/object based work I’m creating as part of Sound Yard in London!
