Containers (Audio)

May 29, 2020
Created by Sherre DeLys and Russell Stapleton (2001). Introduced by Karen Werner.
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. - Introduced by Wave Farm Radio Artist Fellow 2019/2020, Karen Werner.
