Sigur Ros slowed 800%
http://soundcloud.com/thisisparker/sigur-ros-saeglopur-800-slower Is absolutely stunning and even more moving than their music already is. Providing the soundtrack for this evening indeed. I love the fact that it sounds like they’ve got a whole orchestra behind them!
On the subject of soundscape things. This is one...
Scanner’s work looks very interesting and I’m sure I will find many things to relate to, especially in his soundscape/walks such as Surface Sounds, although I am made mightily jealous as he is far more musically adept! I shall have to look into this further! ( and learn an instrument!) The first part of Surface Sounds: http://www.scannerdot.com/mp3/scanners_mp3/part%201.mp3

Meese was an artist that was brought up in discussion in the performance elective. While I have to admit I had not heard of him before, he seems to carry a message that I’m extremely interested in, especially while I’m in such a funny space with my practise. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8fZsoS8p9c “Art is play. Total play. Total revolution. And all the people who play are...

My current pieces focus on characters that perhaps are only seen or heard for a few seconds, but for me, one line is all it needs to build up a whole profile of a...
