Producing a soundtrack for Gold soundz

September 2008

The context for the artwork produced for the Gold Soundz exhibition is based on inspirational music.

I was introduced to the work of Amon Tobin, a Brazilian musician, DJ, and producer of sample-based music by a friend and DJ (Dez), who partly collaborated with me to produce the soundtrack for the exhibition.

The structure of the track was based on simple drum beats created by Dez and mixed together with binaural audio recordings taken from inside the gallery, including the upstairs studio areas, workshop space and kitchen and the outside area of the gallery.  The window design using hazard tape was designed by Geoff Litherland (curator and artist for Gold Soundz).

Gold Soundz was a window space binaural audio installation, produced as part of a group exhibition for Southwell Artspace.  Please listen to Untitled (Southwell Artspace) via stereo headphones.  Approx 2 mins 30 secs

Lucy Stevens’ artistic practice examines the acoustic ecology of the natural environment, using field recording, digital illustration, performance and printmaking as a tool to visualise sound produced by wildlife, weather and other natural phenomena.
