The Dustbin Man Cometh (again)

Following the recent In The Dark: Cityscapes event I was interviewed for the Monocle 24 radio show ‘The Urbanist‘ – we talked about some of the pieces played, discuss the power of audio and explore the nature of urban soundscapes. You can have a listen below, although I admit, I much prefer being on the other side of the microphone.

The Dustbin Man Cometh was also featured featured on NTS radio by Graham Dunning on his show ‘Fractal Meat on a Spongy Bone‘ – the show’s a nice listen for anyone interested in avant garde audio, featuring a jagged mix of experimental music, sound art and sonic experimentation. There’s a blog associated with the show here and you can catch the show every second Friday between 8-10am on NTS Radio. Recommended listening.

You can listen to the show below:

  1. Great interview. Funny how we cringe at hearing our own voices. I’d love to have the opportunity to attend one of the In the Dark events – sounds like you guys are doing a great job in presenting the way in which sound can create a narrative.

    1. Thanks – yes I do cringe when I hear my voice!

      Re: In The Dark – we’re trying to explore the practice of ‘live listening’ further by making it something that’s more than just playing a linear selection of radio pieces. For our next event we’ve been producing a lot of our own content, to help blend and transition between the selected pieces – weaving the everything together into one coherent ‘mix’ if you will. We’d love to make these mixes available online, but getting permission to do this from all producers / broadcasters is a bit of a headache.

      Although it’s probably still a huge distance for you, there are In The Dark events occasionally in Sydney, and if you ever find yourself in London, you are of course welcome as our guest!
