RE: [thewire] Pretentious?
>Or the prat who did a dbl-disc compiled from 60 yrs of the radio-broadcastsof the two minutes silence during
>the annual Remembrance Day ceremony in LOndon.The two minutes silence thing was Kenotaphion by Jonty Semper. I quite
enjoyed it, particularly since the "silence" rarely was one - as well as
natural sounds like leaves or wind there were unnatural ones like a
helicopter and sounds associated with broadcast, transmission and
reproduction (including someone reading a poem). The way in which the sound
of the strokes of Big Ben varied year on year was also interesting.
But then, all my friends think I'm pretentious anyway...
