I Live Between Concrete Walls


To your scattered bodies go!

As a species we've hit the bedtime barrier.

Your father should have taught you how to sharpen your own knives.

but I was empty as a grave and ghostless was the air
laid back to bed and dulled my eyes and searched those fruitless skies

Abba are really good. How can they have done ‘Dancing Queen’ AND ‘The Winner Takes it All’?

A (Swedish) friend of mine asseses character based on response to the statement ‘ABBA are better than the Beatles’.

Might take it up myself.

In other news campus radio has been taken over by an ABBA obsessive and it has been non-stop for 2 hours.

At least he gave me a really good example for explaining the metaphoric use of ‘repellent’ in the class I was on my way to.

He just finger combed dandruff out of his hair and onto me.

The man beside me on the bus keeps poking me to move further and further over and flapping his elbows and giving out heavy sighs. He’s already taking up half my seat as well as his own. Fuck’s sake.

Peter Cusack is a field recordist, musician and researcher who has traveled to areas of major environmental devastation, nuclear sites, big landfill dumps, edges of military zones and other potentially dangerous places. He has been to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone; the Caspian Oil Fields in Azerbaijan; ‘London Gateway’ the new port on the River Thames where massive dredging severely damages the underwater environment; the Aral Sea, Kazakhstan, which is now being partially restored after virtually disappearing due to catastrophic water misuse.

While most of these locations have been extensively discussed in articles and documented in images, we don’t know what a day in any of these places sounds like. With his field recordings, however, Cusack gives us an idea of what a radiometer with a cuckoo in the background in Pripyat sounds like. Or what it is like to hear the wind whistling by the Sizewell nuclear power stations. These recording belong to a practice that the artist calls sonic journalism. The discipline is an audio complement and companion to images and language. Using field recordings and careful listening, sonic journalism provides valuable insights into the atmosphere of a particular site.

You can listen to some of the field recordings online (Sounds from Chernobyl + Caspian Oil and UK Sites.) Some are very moving.

Check out the CDs and accompanying book that bring together extensive field recordings, photos and writing from the work in Chernobyl, Caspian oil, and UK sites
