crawlspace : Eamon Sprod+David Prescott-Steed (Unfathomless)




 




November 2022

Crawlspace with David Prescott-Steed  (Unfathomless)

Crawlspace developed from dialogue between ourselves, as well as between us and the long, narrow storm water drain known as Bell Stairs. The physicality of the space shaped our movements within it; how we moved through the space impacted upon what was heard and how we listened. This informed what additional sounds we introduced and how we introduced them, which in turn shaped our movements … and so on. 

The recorded traces of this process have been arranged to reflect some of these spatial conversations, comprising clusters of activity interspersed by the sound of the distant water, the traffic above our heads or a single drip drawing us on further down the tunnel. You can hear our movement through the darkness, and the sounds of our somewhat futile attempts to coax Bell Stairs to answer back.

ROOMS (Ferns Recordings)

Available now : fernsrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/rooms

Shaped from various recordings of installations and spatial works presented over 2019-21 ... however ROOMS is not intended to act as a straight document of these installations. Rather, it explores some of the ideas and methods which emerged from the process, within the space formed by a pair of stereo speakers situated in yet another room. Recorded audio material is explored as a shifting series of perceivable surfaces, textures and depths; traces of places and actions; points in space; vibration of speaker cone and microphone diaphragm; resonant objects acting as small sounding containers within larger containers; movements of air; a constant shifting set of perspectives; the traces that are left behind; debris gathered up and pawed over. Recorded sound is gathered and understood as partial, fragmentary, incomplete.
