Project Description

VIEWPOINT – WORKS FROM BEAST VOL 2

This album is a collection of pieces for an installation by composers from BEAST (Birmingham Electro Acoustic Sound Theatre) at the University of Birmingham. Viewpoint was commissioned by the Aldeburgh Festival 2001 and was installed on Aldeburgh beach.

Aldeburgh beach is a viewpoint. What you see is the sea and an English beach. But what does it look like on the other side? What are the beaches like along the opposite coastline? BEAST gives you a sonic impression of what you would be able to see if the conditions were different. You are invited to take a seat in one of the eight compartments facing coastal points of different European countries along the North Sea coast. Listen to eight BEAST composers presenting their works and letting you hear more than you can’t see…

My studio composition Viewpoint on Denmark – Holmsland Klit features on this compilation.

Additional tracks composed by: Richard Whitelaw, Andy Dollerson, Michael Wolters, Jon Aveyard, David Berezan, Peter Batchelor and Antti Saario in the Electroacoustic Music Studios, Birmingham University, UK

Please contact me if you would like to purchase a copy.
