Three Tier Sound installation at Wet Sounds
14-15 May 2011: All Tomorrow’s Parties at Butlins Holiday Camp in Minehead, UK curated by Animal Collective.

The installation involved using three soundsystems simultaneously  with different content played through each of the separate sound spaces, three layers of sound
These three sound systems presented a split-mix three-layer abstract mash up and sometimes acted as a three-way speaker system (Low – mid – hi).

/ Four speakers playing into the swimming pool hall space above the listeners. The content through the top layer merged with the natural acoustics of the room, using mainly low and low-mid frequencies, it sounded like a cloud of sound looming over the listeners.

// Four speakers on pool side floor playing directly to the listeners as they float on the water surface, the sounds piercing through the ‘sound cloud’ using content with mainly mid-high frequencies.

/// The underwater soundsystem, distinct from the content above the water, provided a separate space for augmenting the sound narrative above the water.

A HISTORY OF SOUND ART
Arranged and composed by J Milo Taylor
Mixed by Joel Cahen

An engaging sound collage presenting an unique historical documentation of Sound Art from the early 20th century to present day. The composition weaves through different sound works throughout the century with narratives and ideas from some of the prominent artists in the field. A retrospective into the craft of sound and its development as an artistic practice, from Edison’s first sound film in 1895 to today, including the thoughts and concepts which served the basis for the creation of these works as spoken by the artists themselves.

The ‘Listening’ is generally accompanied by a programme which informs of the artists whose work and words are heard.

THE RADIO

Audio and Video matcher.
Radio plugged to PC. The user uses two dials on the radio to change the audio and video on the PC respectively. The videos are different to each other, excerpts of daily life. The audio pieces are very atmospheric short looping sections with accompanying familiar advert slogans. The different juxtapositions of the audio and video endows each piece with different meanings showing how our understanding of the visual is affected by its soundtrack and how the words and sound is informed by the visual.

[The video above is a recording of a random play, one of many combinations]

Exhibited at
