Slow Radio from the BBC

Listen to Slow Radio, more excellence from BBC Sounds brought to my attention by SB. The first episode I listened to was a short one, a 16 minute visit to a snowy forest near Oslo. I’ll most likely listen to all of them at some point, but might particularly listen to Dementia voices, the last Elfdalians, life on a shanty boat next.

Definitely looking forward to the multipart, multi-hour Arctic Sound Walk coming up on 24–26 December.

Self portrait recording

A self portrait recording from spring 2011. I wrote a set of rules and then plotted events and traits along a timeline of sorts. The timeline was used as sheet music. Not 100% happy with it, there are many issues that aren’t resolved (including the ending).

At any rate, I’d like to revisit the concept. The more long-term idea was to work with other people’s lives and help them record their own self portraits, but the whole effort sort of paused after working on this first one.
