Shell Of A City


Recorded in Naarm, ‘Shell Of A City’ reframes the architecture an instrument, in a concrète procession. Durational contact recordings of a highway’s substructure reveal an unearthly resonance. The continuous physical phenomenon is gently processed to explore electroacoustic practice with a contemplative urgency. The 40 minute arrangement pairs two channels of site-based improvisation into a time-altering minimal structure. ‘Shell Of A City’ releases in CS/DL format on Room40 on September 1, 2023 with a short film in collaboration with photographer Traianos Pakioufakis.
