RTCD3 - Fergus Kelly: Material Evidence

Fergus Kelly: Material Evidence




Composed from recordings made in ex-Guinness sites in Crane Street and Watling Street, Dublin, March - May 2006

"Fergus Kelly is a Dublin based sound artist. Recorded inside two deserted Guinness vathouses, this solo piece employs detritus as musical instrumentation and offers a brilliantly confusing set of sounds. Densely packed with sonic events, it's really hard to figure out the source material for the sheets of percussion that rattle and scamper throughout the three selections. My favourite bits have dripping water as a backdrop to a kind of circular metallic shimmer, which succeeds in sounding like a worm eating its own tail without becoming droney. Nice trick."

Byron Coley, The Wire
