This is turning out to be a tougher search than I expected! It seems nearly no-one produces records as a sound-furniture that is expected to live in the real world. Nearly everyone tries to demand, capture and hostage our entire attention (the spoiled little darlings) to the exclusion of anything else that may be there, in the sounds of that space, where we are, then, while we listen. Its as if they cannot bear the thought that we may already have a sound environment which they did not create -- even "new age environmental" insists on giving me THEIR frogs, crickets, waterfalls and thunderstorms!
But that is not the case. Is it.
Such records-objects as sounds-in-themselves must exist; I'm hoping you can help me find them :)
Even the John Cage tribute, A Chance Operation
, while assembled by chance operations, is a fixed piece of relentless sound covering every inch/second of the available canvas. It may coexist with other sounds, but grants them no space in the programme.
