Hidden Spaces is an electroacoustic work in three sections. Each section frames field recordings made by me in different locations - 'found' sounds that had an unusual or interesting quality, intensified by the use of close microphone recording. The framing of these sounds is achieved through fragments of the original recordings being extracted and developed into new rhythmic and spectral constructs and by the subtle blending of electronically generated resonance. The three sections are: Refsta: based on recordings made in a very remote location in this rural Swedish area. Montreal: featuring an escalator at the Fabre metro station. Dobbiaco (Toblach): Pigs at an animal park in the South Tyrol (built around Mahler's last composing hut just outside this small town in Italy).
Hidden Spaces is also available in a 3-channel (L-C-R) version.
