Containers was produced by Sherre DeLys and Russell Stapleton for The Listening Room in 2001. The Listening Room was a landmark radio art show on the Australian Broadcast Corporation that aired from 1988-2003. Containers is a composition made of recordings of working sites in Syndey, specifically around Sydney Harbour and Port Botany in one day. I was reminded of Containers the other day while hearing the sounds of city construction near where I live. Because I have listened to Containers many times over the years, I heard these sounds of hammering, machinery and workers yelling out my window as music. - Described by Wave Farm Radio Artist Fellow 2019/2020, Karen Werner.
