In an exchange with music journalist René van Peer, composer and sound poet Jaap Blonk discusses aspects of his work that hitherto have not been given much attention: his approach to composition, his use of electronic equipment and software, and his thoughts about recordings of his work.
Interviewed by music journalist René van Peer, the composer and sound recordist David Dunn discusses the sound work he has done in natural environments, his motivations for doing this work, and the thoughts and theories he has developed from it. Most of these works are unique events created for a specific time and location or for specific circumstances. In these events, the sounds generated by the players set up interactions with their immediate surroundings. Soundscape recordings are another aspect of Dunn's work. His work in different natural and cultural environments has enabled him to research areas where music and language intersect.
