    "The programme is being produced with special thanks to Steve Brown
    and Ewan Stefani who kindly allowed me to interview them about their
    use of field recordings in their design and compositional works.

    Being a designer and composer myself I was interested to see to what
    extent both the theatre and the experimental music disciplines used
    field recordings so I could compare this to my own work.

    Cities of Sound is a sonic exploration of the field recordings I
    have managed to collect over the past few years from different
    places and countries I have visited. I was very interested in
    bringing all the sounds together to produce an almost immersive

    Something I am very interested in examining at the moment is the
    relationship that field recordings can have in different places
    within musical composition. I have some extracts to play of an
    interview I conducted with Steve Brown who is a theatre sound
    designer at the royal exchange theatre in Manchester, Steve is also
    head of sound at the international organisation OISTAT. I am also
    going to play an interview conducted with Ewan Stefani who is a
    lecturer at Leeds University and an electroacoustic and acousmatic

    One of the main aspects I set out to achieve by conducting
    interviews between a theatre sound designer and electroacoustic
    composer was to see whether there were any similarities in the way
    that they used field recordings in their work

    Ewan and Steve are both responding to questions I have asked them
    throughout my interview with them and at the end are responding
    directly to my question of where is sound design and electroacoustic
    music going in the future and are there any similarities to their
    respected fields to one another's.

    Comparing the work produced by Ewan and Steve to my own work I can
    see many similarities in the way of style and format. To me the
    discipline of being an electroacoustic, acousmatic or experimental
    composer doesn't differ or vary much to the work I carry out to a
    sound designer. I use field recordings quite heavily in my work
    whether design related or composition related. They have become more
    and more frequent over the years and now feature quite dominantly in
    my work.

    I am very interested in organic field recordings and in the
    association sound can have with space and location. My recent work
    has developed into more site specific exhibition and installations.

    Working as both a composer and sound designer I am very interested
    in examining the connections between the two disciplines and how a
    composer might see him or herself as a designer when using fields
    recordings and sound in an experimental way and how a sound designer
    might relate to themselves as a composer because of the way they are
    structuring and composing a musical piece.

    I have recently been involved in composing and producing a piece
    titled Memories Unearthed which was an outdoor sound installation at
    a country park in Salford, Manchester.

    Memories Unearthed is an experimental soundscape which was produced
    by using various field recordings that were taking from the park in
    Salford and fused alongside various recordings I have produced and
    reproduced that would have been associated with a colliery that was
    once based in the area, namely the Wet Earth Colliery. The
    installation was produced for an event titled Dirt and Dreams which
    commemorated the work of those that worked in the mining industry.

    The environmental field recordings specifically heard at the
    beginning and end of the piece were produced with the help of local
    children and families that came along to a workshop that was run in
    the park and involved them participating in a soundwalk around the
    area. Recordings were made and I tried to incorporate as many as
    possible into the piece."

again, we are always looking for material for the show, whether raw 
field recordings, field recording based composition, or introduction 
submissions.  we are also now accepting proposals for full editions of 
our guest curated series.  send proposals or material, released or not, 
on any format, to the address below.  if you have any questions, please 
don't hesitate to get in touch!
