about

Concentrated Living (originally realeased under my real name, Dave House) is a sonic document of my journey around New Zealand and Indonesia in 2004/5. I captured any audio that caught my ear, from the exotic to the mundane. Once home I unwove the material and tweaked, looped and stitched it into a representation of my trip.

Every sound on the album is an original recording or a derivitive. The recontextualisation of sounds and the way disparate sources sit in harmony is a fitting metaphor for the sensory and cultural overload that is world travel.

In 2018 I embark on a residency as a composer and sound artist at Sura Medura, Sri Lanka. In an echo of my 2004/5 trip, I will once again be making extensive field recordings, as well as working and performing with local musicians. This seems a fitting occasion to issue a freshly remixed and remastered version of Concentrated Living.
