  3. Cultures of Energy: Ep. #14 - Lawrence English

    This week Cultures of Energy welcomes the brilliant (and fully certified) sound artist and composer Lawrence English to the podcast. Lawrence explains his relational approach to listening and how he became interested in the practice of field recording. We discuss the difference between hearing and listening, field recording as a political act, aesthetics of signal and noise, and how different ears have different horizons of listening. As a non-linear medium, Lawrence emphasizes the endlessness and promiscuousness of sound and how listening can help us reconnect to our immediate environments and to the world at large. Relish the incidental! In our final segment, we mix for your audition and pleasure several clips from Lawrence’s 2012 field recording collection, Songs Of The Living And The Lived In. See if you can recognize the Antarctic fur seal sleeping, Amazonian howler monkeys, Cormorants flocking at dusk, Australian chiroptera, Adele penguin chicks, Antarctic fur seals very much awake, white-throated toucans’ dawn display and a trigona carbonaria hive invasion.

  8. Pop Up Circus - an outback odyssey

    Last spring, the opal mining Corner Country town of White Cliffs held an Underground Art Festival and, as part of the celebration, Jon Rose led a group of musician/sound artists into the small but very engaged community.

    The Sound Circus brought sonic work, which uses fragile new media and homemade technologies, to challenging and remote environments and conditions hostile to Homo urbanus (heat, flies, floods, snakes, etc). It’s a test for a musician, their creativity, and their technologies. The mission also examined the notion of whether a group of ‘blowins’ could contribute to a ‘singing up of country’ in a place where indigenous traditional culture has all but been eradicated. (Mutawintji National Park once hosted huge corrobories of over 3,000 people.) The circus sound artists offered improvised performances, interactive musical ‘play’ and highly successful school workshops.
