Private Publicity Blank Gif
Private Publicity, 2007
Charles Hugall
narrated by Christopher Page
5min 32sec

Private Publicity contains dialogue sourced from the Graffiti in various toilets over three years at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London. It may be best to listen to it in stereo through loudspeakers that are relatively far apart as it was originally exhibited in a long, busy corridor in the college with a loudspeaker suspended at each end.

**contains explicit language.

Oscillation Blank Gif
Oscillation (childhood), 2004
Jessica Curry
4min 47sec
Oscillation is about the seven ages of man: Infancy, Childhood, The Lover, The Soldier, Justice, Old Age and Death. Oscillation was constructed using live instrumentation, found sound, location recording, spoken word and the sampling and manipulation of existing music sources to create an environment that is immersive, ambient and ambiguous. Emotive utterances from each age are layered through abstract soundscapes, creating a space where loss and hope, nostalgia and premonition and all the complexities and contradictions of life and death can be mused upon.

Anti-Frieze Blank Gif
Anti-Frieze, 2007
Frog Morris
5min 2sec

Anti-Frieze is a post apocalyptic science fiction radio drama. The script is based on a mix of classic science fiction including War of the Worlds and 1984 and also on a more recent book Tescopoly by journalist Andrew Simms. Great science fiction doesn't tell us about the future, it tells us about what we are doing now. The sounds effects were all recorded in my local supermarket.

I am Great Blank Gif
Jag är störst /I am great, 2007
Ulrika Sparre
2min 36sec
The piece Jag är störst /I am great, is aiming to find a form to unite individuals in a secular country. The starting point is Sweden, the most secular country in the world, where belief in the individual is strong. I am the caller of a prayer where the "I" is worshiped, using the same aesthetics as the call, broadcast from a minaret.

In Sweden and other highly secular countries today, we have difficulty finding values to unite us beyond consumer messages, advertising or the belief in a god. From an early age we learn that we are responsible for the development of our own lives. Is it possible to see people around us as a communal "we", while we are so closely defined by "I"? Is this a natural part of our struggle to become the self-confident "I" who can achieve anything? Can we - through I (myself) - create a uniting power through the belief in ourselves as individuals? This in combination with our ambition to distinguish ourselves by individual branding and choices in our way of living.

Before & After Blank Gif
Before & After, 2007
Dominique Mitchell
3min 33sec
The story “Before and After” (written by Mike Rosen), was memorised and spoken phonetically backwards and then reversed, as if being spoken forwards.  This backwards – forwards format challenges our perception of voice, and forces us to question what we are hearing. Phonemes are devoid of meaning, existing as just sounds, stripping the final piece of any emotion, feeling or meaning.

Danse Amoeba Blank Gif
Danse' Amoeba, 2007
Composed by Sabrina Pena Young using Supercollider scripting language.
5min 12sec
When commissioned by the Conservertoire Protozoa last year to write a piece for the Ball de Mikroscopi, I was taken aback. I had never composed something for such an audience. Difficulty materialized with the title, since the amoeba and the protozoa had feuded for generations (human time - five minutes). However, as the dissenters expired during the conversation, I premiered this work to a new generation of protozoa that did not care for the previous generation's antiquated ideas.

Mother Tongue Blank Gif
Mother Tongue , 2007
Paul Cordwell
10min 11sec
Inspired by the fact that that TV science-fiction language Klingon is now more popular in American educational institutions than the idealistic world language Esperanto, Mother Tongue celebrates the victory of Klingon over Esperanto as a potential world, indeed, interplanetary language. Constructed from the sound of a teach-yourself-conversational-Klingon cassette, the Scwhitters-style nonsense sound-poem slowly transforms into an interrogative jabber, all the more irritating for its complete impenetrability.
