songs of silence

Blythe found this article about songs of silence in reference to this post. i’m searching them out now… I’ve done a post-apocalyptic swf to use on Monday in the workshop. i’m looking for some music to make the silence… just having no noise doesn’t make a silence…

Blythe currently has an exhibition of her work on in the city, ‘cassette couture’ – in the Vitrine Cabinet, at Platform, in the Degraves underpass. i’m really looking forward to getting there this week. It closes at the end of June.

    I read something the other day – I can’t remember where – about how a lot of Australian music is recorded so that it’s actually “too loud” (Missy Higgins was named as one of the culprits!)…apparently the link between volume and pleasure can be traced to the operation of the braind. I don’t remember the details, but I remember being fascinated that volume could be so important! (In other words, it’s a classic case of quantity over quality!)

    There is a wonderful artist by the name of Matt Rogalsky who creates audio art using silences extracted from various sources through live processing… you can hear some of his work at his site:

    check out 2 minutes and 50 seconds of silence (for the usa) and a little bird told me…
