SUZUKI, AKIO + LAWRENCE ENGLISH - BOOMBANA ECHOES (CD)


"Boombana Echoes is a lovely new edition being published by Winds Measure. It's a collection of three improvised recording pieces made by myself and Japanese sound art forefather Akio Suzuki. I must say, I couldn't be more pleased to have this edition coming out, Winds Measure have made an astounding package for the edition - truly outstanding letter press. These recordings are edits from a series of both site specific and situation specific encounters we developed together during a short performance based residency in Brisbane. The first recordings we made together were site specific, and the title of this edition reflects the location in which we began working on the project together. Boombana is an area of forest that shifts from open eucalypt woodland to sub-tropic rainforest within a matter of 500 metres. It's located on route to Mt Nebo and not far from there, the view stretches all the way to Moreton Bay. I recorded Suzuki-san during high summer, the forest sizzling with an eerie electronic fizz of cicadas and leaf hoppers, occasionally interrupted by screeching Sulphur Crested Cockatoos. It was these recordings that form the inspiration for the duet published here." (L.English) includes cd, 2 color letterpress die cut sleeve, 3 letterpress printed inserts of drawings by akio suzuki
