Western culture's weird relationship with its environment. A plastic shopping bag containing water is suspended, via a scaffold tripod. The punctured bag drips on to a domestic hotplate, removed from its worktop. The entire assemblage sits atop an astro turf 'plinth bathed in lurid pink LED light.

Utilising field recordings taken at Little Cheyne wind farm, A Brackish Hymn examines Romney Marsh through the dislocation of sound.
Collaboration With Cieciura/DeSousa as part of the De La Warr Pavilion/Dear Serge Curation of St Mary's Church in Ivychurch, Romney Marsh, 2015
3 way collaboration between Cieciura/DeSousa, Graham Dunning and Caleb Madden to mark the De La Warr Pavilion/Dear Serge curation of St Mary's church in Ivychurch as part of Art in Romney Marsh festival 2015.
The work consists of a 12" vinyl record featuring on one side, a site recording of the installation A Brackish Hymn by Cieciura/De Sousa and Caleb Madden, on the other side A Brackish Dub - a re-amped recording of the Rhythm and Drone performance by Graham Dunning at St Mary's Church. Graham's performance utilised pre-cut dubplate recordings of the wind turbines used in the installation. This performance was recorded and mixed then re-amped in situ to create the final, 13 century church reverb soaked, document.
This work will be available to buy soon in a very limited edition of 10.
Trace is a sound commission for Tate Modern completed in 2014.
The brief for the project requested audio projects made specifically to be listened to on headphones within the Tate Modern galleries and building. The requirement was that it would be an engaging intervention for visitors of Tate Modern; to be listened to as they move through the different spaces of the building.
For the work I traveled to Fawley Power Station, near Southampton. The station (which has since ceased operation) was one of the last remaining oil fired power stations in the UK. This is the same type of station as the Bankside facility before its re-incarnation as an art gallery.
I used binaural microphones to record many sounds at Fawley, including close proximity recordings of the turbines in operation. you can read more about the project here, and and listen to the recordings here.
