Shell Of A City

September 1, 2023

From Lisa Lerkenfeldt

Recorded in Naarm, ’Shell Of A City’ reframes the architecture an instrument, in a concrète procession.

Durational contact recordings of a highway’s substructure reveal an unearthly resonance.

The continuous physical phenomenon is gently processed to explore the fringes of electroacoustic practice with a contemplative urgency.

The 40 minute arrangement pairs two channels of site-based improvisation into a time-altering minimal structure.

Many people wrote to me to say ‘A Liquor Of Daisies’ tape was a tool they used for rest. How precious. ‘Shell Of A City’ follows in its path.

I carve out space for listening to the discrete and lesser noticed.
