(A soundwork for the launch of Gray's Radio: duration 16 minutes 25 seconds)

 

The work is based around an incidence of domestic low frequency noise; a sound that, in this case, turns out to be a physical as well as an aural experience. What can be heard is being shaped and concentrated by the architectural space into wave patterns that create both loud areas and spots of silence. As ordinary things often do, this night time nuisance has brought about a revelation; that of the very physical nature of hearing as an engagement with environment. However, there are times when we may not wish for such an audible engagement. Luckily, for those occasions, there is noise cancelling software.
