As part of a bid to understand the impact of the current Covid 19 pandemic on our sounding experience Sound Diaries are working on projects that will map the changes in our everyday soundscapes as the lockdown begins to ease:

Richard Bentley – Distal Bodies
Patrick Farmer – first thought only thought
Shirley Pegna – All Terrain
Paul Whitty – On The Covid 19 Shoreline / football not happening / Behind Closed Doors


Our friends and collaborators at OCM have rescheduled a concert that was originally due to take place at audiograft 2020. “Tim Hill, together with Jonathan Cooke (electronics) presents two short sound bursts from home in Somerset. In the first, following the Thursday night ‘Clap for Carers’ he explores what he calls ‘expressive noise’,  how we use sound in rituals, celebration and protest. The second introduces the electro-acoustic trio Swine, based around the sound sculptures of Michael Fairfax, in which Tim plays treated sax.”

We now have Bandcamp pages up and running for both our SARU and Sound Diaries imprints. The latter currently features recordings made by Paul Whitty for his Get Rid! Project, a collection of recordings documents the sound of football and happening and football not happening, look for more coming soon. The SARU imprint features recordings made by artists all over the world, responding to a composition, titled Trichromatic Moiré, by former Brookes student, Thomas Martin Nutt.

In the coming months we’re excited to be releasing some new recordings made by artists who would have been involved with audiograft 2020. Keep checking back.
