Improvisation in Acoustic Chambers by Ros Bandt
Ros Bandt is an internationally recognised composer and sound artist. Improvisation in Acoustic Chambers was recorded in 1979 in a concrete water tank and a wheat silo using a binaural dummy-head microphone and a Nagra tape recorder with no editing or production effects. Released on vinyl LP in 1981, Bandt credits this recording with inspiring her to ‘create architectural and spatial musics’. She is currently engaged in creating a digital acoustic sanctuary celebrating the sounds of the Jaara Jaara Box-Ironbark Forest of North Central Victoria.
