  untitled (horror)
Audio, PA system, 2000

Several seconds of sampled horror film score build and build to form a dense and evocative sound work. Crossing the borders of high and low musical genres, the composition is part Stockhausen minimalism, part George A. Romero, B-movie soundtrack. As a portable, audio artwork it was made to be incorporated into an infinite number of liminal settings or non-sites. The work acts as a kind of soundtrack for those sites.

Broadcasts to date include: A Haunting, Manchester University; on the soundsystem of a West End, London theatre before curtain rise; on the in-car stereo during a minibus tour of a Lake District forest park, Grizedale, Cumbria; and as an FM radio broadcast across Belfast, Northern Ireland.

untitled (horror) was released on the CD series of artists's sound art, file.
