‘Recordings of Poles and Wires’ installation & performance

Opening at Sydney Non Objective (SNO) Contemporary Art space on Saturday 8th May Recordings of Poles and Wires is an installation of new sound works by Garry Bradbury. During the exhibition opening Bradbury and fellow WIRED Lab member Dave Noyze will perform solo and collaborative works, marking the 1st live metropolitan performances of Wire Musics by WIRED Lab members.

Ever the subversive Bradbury’s new works are primarily based on recordings made from the sounds emanating from the wooden support poles, rather than utilising the wires, as many other artists have done to record sounds of the wire installations elsewhere and at The WIRED Lab in regional South West NSW.

The Pole Recordings were created during several residencies Bradbury spent at The WIRED Lab. Rather than the conventional pre-amp and contact mic recording method developed by Alan Lamb and The Wired Lab, Bradbury used a DAT recorder with stereo condenser microphone shielded by an old respirator mask found on The Wired Lab farm. The mask functioned much like a stethoscope which isolated and captured intricate meshes of sound issuing from cracks in the wooden fence posts that support the wire installations.

The installation of Wire instruments at The Wired Lab was established as a means to develop and further investigate aeolian harp phenomena pioneered by Australian sound art icon and all round polymath Dr Alan Lamb. Lamb has, for many years, been recording wires in the environment, both pre-existing (eg; derelict telegraph wires, fences etc) and constructed. This has resulted in several highly acclaimed releases, perhaps most notably Night Passage and film soundtracks. The WIRED Lab was established to expand and proliferate Lamb’s legacy, and exemplify the possibilities rather than the limitations of regionally based art practices.
