Kristin Nelson (Canada) commissioned me and other artists to create new work using the sounds of winches as recorded in the Joan Sutherland Theatre at the Sydney Opera House by Sound Designer Emma Duggan during a Canada Council for the Arts International Residency at Artspace in Sydney, Australia. More info at her website here.
The album is currently available for $40 USD and was produced in an edition of 100. Cost includes shipping within Canada and the US.
The project was made possible by The Winnipeg Arts Council.
