Its hollow lung believes lazily from within the little songs of the mutilated
From the site: “Its hollow lung believes lazily from within the…” is the thirty-third volume of Exquisite Corpse music from the sound art collective Little Songs Of The Mutilated. Created between July 13th-18th 2020, the process adapts the old Surrealist parlour game for an online sound and music collaboration. The 6 pieces were worked on concurrently, one round per day, each with an unique permutation to the order of players to maximize both the variety in results and challenge in the process. The only parameter predetermined was the duration of each contribution, in an effort to democratize the process and authorship.
I was so happy to be invited to participate on such a great project.
The heartbeat of kipli paywuta lumi was a 60-minute sound piece produced by Koori artist Anna Liebzeit in collaboration with palawa kani speakers. Capturing and combining the unique sounds of the Cape Barren Island fiddle played by Merinda Sainty, Country and language, Liebzeit’s hauntingly powerful soundtrack vibrates through time and place, creating a fluid narrative of Pakana connection to the elements.
This is one version of a song I wrote called Massacre Town, in 2016.
