about

The Northern Ireland Soundscapes 1 & 2 that make up this set were composed for a special concert celebrating the publication of the Belfast Imagined issue of the Five Points Journal of Literature and Art. Field recordings from the environs of East Antrim, including the city of Belfast and the surrounding local area, are combined with electroacoustic transformations of them. Sounds heard include graffiti artists in the rain, recordings from the city (as well as the suburbs), skateboarders at the Customs House, the library trolley at Queen's and sheep, among numerous others.

This album also includes Homage L.B. Fantasia - composed in memory of Luciano Berio, Suite Automatic, and the extended work Alignment.
