P.

Interviews were recorded at random with passers by involving a series of set questions about every day life. The sounds, speech, rhythms of thought, the cadences of two realities were then edited together to form a collage of clues and triggers about location, culture and ideology., Declan McGonagle, catalogue for the British Art Show Australia 1985.

  • 0782272121

    Six Works for the Telephone (National Garden Festival) (C 20 cassette) 1986. Each telephone piece was derived from recordings made at monthly intervals, on site at the National Garden Festival, Stoke on Trent. The works, installed each month by British Telecom on the Stoke number 272121, Were conceived and realised specifically for listening to over the phone. A concern for place and location has been explored through recordings of the spoken Word. Our intention has been to use colloquilism, accent, local humour, intonation and emphasis to evoke and explore cultural identity, social attitudes and local preoccupation. In formulating questions to Garden Festival visitors, the particular industrial and social character as well as the history of the area was taken into account. Questions also included references to the role and function of gardens/ leisure spaces as weill as a consideration of the changing seasons between May and October. (B)
