** due to changes at Australia Post, international postage of single CDs is now stupidly expensive. I have adjusted postage prices to reflect what it will cost me to send any small packages, and hopefully I can find a work-around soon, as I don't expect anyone to actually pay this !!!

I am a collector of rubbish: not an archivist, but in a small way, a hoarder. Clutter seems to be attracted to me.

HOUSEKEEPING was originally conceived as a project to finally put to use some of this amassed junk, and then to discard it all once again. It first took shape as an installation work for 8-channel audio, found objects, speakers, transducers, desk, chair and room; presented at Blindside, Melbourne, August 2017.

Since then it has slowly shifted itself into this CD. However rather than a documentation of an installation, this iteration has been arranged from the debris collected during the process of making one. Sound was gathered together from various raw audio materials; object manipulation; rehearsals, studio tests and failures; recordings of both installation and de-installation; the final composition files ; recordings of the installation in-situ; the empty gallery space; the Nicholas Building (the home of Blindside); a performance made with Clinton Green enacted to close the installation. All collected materials were then cut up, tumbled around and de-arranged into the current form it finds itself in here.

Mastered by A.F. Jones at Laminal Audio
