programme:

wind-turbines‘converse 1 • wood pigeon and wind turbine’ by ivon oates [4min audio]
a wood pigeon muses on wind power. Mixed field recordings.

This soundwork recalls a ‘converse’ interaction between ‘living voice’ and constructed sounds, a woodpigeon and a wind turbine, conversational rather than polarised. It is an imagined improvisation between a woodpigeon and a wind turbine.

The bird sounds out into the turbulence, swooping its call along the stream of air, diving in and out of the repetitious draft, as if it were improvising on a ‘baseline’. I am filling in the hiatus in my ability to understand the speech of the bird and in the long tradition of mimicking and anthropomorphising bird calls, I am allowing the play between the two ‘voices’.

dislocation‘[dis]location’ by David Rogers [4min video]
mixed field recording

The location: a ‘walk’ through the park to
the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, Barcelona.
The dislocation: an escalator ride through the trees.
