The eminent sound artist Janet Cardiff is the latest Fellow to join Society of Sound. She works mainly in collaboration with her partner George Bures Miller, and – according to Wikipedia – “first gained international notoriety…in 1995.”
Her latest installation, The Murder of Crows, uses one hundred B&W speakers and is at the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum for Gegenwart (Contemporary Art), Berlin from 14th March – 17th May 2009.
She has given us an exclusive interview with fascinating insights into her synaesthesia, how she recorded the individual parts for 40 Part Motet, and why she likes Nick Cave.
We are particularly proud of our Fellows area, apart from Janet this year we have welcomed such musical luminaries as Alfred Brendel and Springsteen guitarist Steve Van Zandt. The one connection between all of them is their passion for amazing sound.
We choose our Fellows because they inspire us. If there’s anyone you would like to see here who you think has made an outstanding contribution to sound, please let us know.
