Janek Schaefer: Clouds from Cuckooland
Info from Vimeo on Janek Schaefer´s commissioned work for the Sounds New Festival, Canterbury 2014:
"'Clouds from Cuckooland' was commissioned for an exhibition about the legend of the 'Canterbury Scene', and in particular the work of Robert Wyatt. I was invited to create an installation from his 'Cuckooland' album, which I evaporated into a 21 minute cloud of sound that floats around and around the gallery. Using 3 x FM transmitters I broadcast the composition to 3 groups of radios set out on a vinyl circle, accompanied by lasers, feathers, mirrors and glitter".
