the sound we are now
A new 23 track sound art audio cd featuring Irish and International artists and composers

During 2007, David Stalling and Anthony Kelly asked a number of artists and composers to respond to a simple idea: to send a short track that in some way reflected their creativity at that particular moment. The rest was left open – the track could be a work in progress, an excerpt from a larger piece, a live recording, sound fragment, field recording or composition. The results of the project are to be found on this CD.

'Sound can move from being a specific composed entity to sound as the aurally perceivable part of a much longer conceptual continuum. Work may use one specific space only as a creative unit. It may be performable anywhere appropriate. It can technically combine several sites as a single simultaneous event. Whatever the approach, creative sound is becoming a continuum rather than a fixed unit. Sound does come in waves'
