‘Braye Harbour – Harbouring Desires of Transcendence is an environmental sound work recorded in the summer of 2000 on the island of Alderney in the Channel Islands. It is an experimental improvisation featuring found objects and surfaces at Braye Harbour about 7am in the morning. The objects used for sound improvisation are, abandoned motor trucks, several small yachts and abandoned sailing equipment, metal storage container, road bollards, small crane and metal objects, quayside crane, and a variety of other objects.
The somewhat naive improvisation reveals the sonic nature of silent objects and surfaces at the location and occasionally excursions into ‘musicality’ occur. This bringing forth and revealing the presence of silent objects through intuitive sonic improvisation is an important aspect of ’Transcendence’ – and is a theme running through much of my work’.
