Alfredo Costa Monteiro: Clair de bee
Clair de bée is a piece where the only sound source is paper, and clearly places itself into the continuity of ‘musique concrète'. Here, as in other paper pieces, the proposal is to track the sound where it's hidden in its less obvious form: the paper matter is transfigured, metamorphosed into a particular musicality. Through a phenomenological approach, "Clair de bée" is an unveiling of the sound matter which is melted until confusion.

Lee Patterson: Springwork #1
Springwork 1 is the first in a series of works exploring the timbral and tonal complexities generated by plucking selected springs. Chosen carefully from my collection of found and retrieved springs, they were attached to a contact mic'd metal plate and recorded. Subsequent editing included the removal of each sounds attack and then increasing the gain of the decaying sound. Recorded in Manchester. Summer 2008
