Recorded on a Saturday evening in June 2007 at Basildon Town Centre, Essex, UK.

Featured is an extract from a longer work: "For Whom The Bells Told" In the vicinity of the Basildon Glass Bell Tower built as part of the Millenium Project.

This is an unreleased extract from a walkabout combining exploration with intuitive freeform improvisation using found objects and surfaces. Recorded using custom in-ear binaural techniques in one continuous single take with no rehearsal. All spatial choreography created live on location.

The finale of this extract was improvised on a number of metal bollards to the rear of the bell tower: http://www.flickr.com/photos/essexglover/866571644/in/set-72157600941264783/

Working freely in a public space the aim is to engage, explore, interrogate and excite the potentialities of sound from silent objects and surfaces in a state of perpetual sensory communion. The approach is to work unobtrusively with humility not attempting to make a 'public performance' or to attract the attention of other people in the area.
