composition and installation exhibited: electricite de france, nogent-sur-seine in partnership with camac centre for arts and technology july - october 2017

in the beautiful, rural landscape of nogent-sur-seine, the presence of the nuclear power station is both mesmerizing and menacing.

repeated attempts to capture audio recordings from the towers were challenged by security and much of the footage was required to be deleted.

the final recording was made during the evening, using a parabolic dish, which enabled the sound to be recorded from a distance without entering the grounds of the power station.

back at the studio the footage was synchronized to the rhythm of breath and originally exhibited as an installation on the grounds of camac in an outdoor storage house as part of a culmination of soundscapes collected whilst on artistic residency in spring 2011.

it had one further exhibition at 'east-pop west' in london before being selected by edf to return back to france for their museum at the power station last year.
