That Infernal Noise (Der var en infernalsk støj-net) – Niels Pugholm

A sound art piece by the Danish sound artist Niels Pugholm. This is a Google translation of the Danish description of the piece on his website: Through a series of recorded conversations with old workers from the Frederiksværk steel rolling mill, I have made a sound installation based on their remembered sound pictures of the steel production.

Thanks to Jennifer Macey for playing this at her excellent Listening Party in Port Kembla in August.

Towel of Song: a documentary musical – CBC The Doc Project

Yes, it’s a documentary musical about towels. Turkish towels. Turkish towels look very pretty, but do they really do what a towel is supposed to?
