EARTH ORGAN, by Stephen Shiell
This score was originally created for people with organ pipes, and the recording of its first performance in a beech woodland in Wiltshire, UK, was used on my album ‘Sonance’, released on Linear Obsessional in 2019. It has been re-worked here for voice and can be performed solo or in a group.
I’m a sound artist, performer and composer. I work with field recordings, found objects and self created instruments. I enjoy the confluence of sound and matter to describe my memories of place. I like working with ‘hidden’ sounds, using very low frequency receivers, electromagnetic microphones, contact mics and hydrophones to explore the sounds outside of human hearing. I am a certified as a facilitator with the Centre for Deep Listening. I now regularly share the practice through workshops in person and online. www.stephenshiell.co.uk
