Annie Bradley
Grind Every Particle
Audio Foundation April 2013

Field recordings are gathered for grind every particle. In one process a car acts as a mobile recording device during the artists daily travels to and from work, operating as a base for further recordings. The work dwells in the sense of contemplative time that develops during commuting and the sharp details which form along the way. A sustained attention is given to the relationship between surfaces and the way they skim across each other when in motion - the grazing of vehicles and bodies.

The road on closer inspection is revealed to be a patchwork, bogged, filled, chipped and in a state of endless repair. Forming a music of terrains, each minute detail is gently touched and repeated. The toyota 'starlet' becomes an instrument of chance in a composition across lanes.

Annie Bradley is an artist based in Auckland, New Zealand. She works between various techniques — drawing, installation, video, sound, ceramics and web based projects. Bradley has exhibited widely at local galleries; including projects at Window, Newcall, Rm and Gallery 3 ST Paul St. She graduated with an M.F.A from Elam school of Fine Arts, University of Auckland in 2003.

Aerial Farm 2004
12’ duration
Phil Dadson b.1946
New Zealander

In January 2003, Phil Dadson received an Antarctic New Zealand Artist fellowship to travel to Scott Base and into the Dry Valleys region to record video and sound material. The resulting Polar Projects comprise eight video/sound works designed to exist as stand-alones, as in this installation, or to work in relation to one another in a similar way to instruments in an ensemble.

In Aerial Farm the circular frame and wires of a communications aerial connecting Scott Base to the outside world, appear as a slowly shifting, illusory graphic outline against a gusting snowdrift and ice-grey background. The sound of the wind and aeolian tones through the wires is produced by a variable speed wind gusts.

Phil Dadson is a sound and intermedia artist with a transdisciplinary practice including solo performances and exhibitions, building and performing with invented instruments, music compositions and graphic scores, sound sculptures and video and sound installations. He is represented by Starkwhite, NZ.

Exhibition runs from Thursday 4 April to Saturday 4 May 2013. Special thanks to Old Mout Cider, The Film Archive and to CNZ for their support.
