usedlost was created for the 2015 Prague Quadrennial for the SoundKitchen call for works “compiled or composed using field (location) recordings made during Prague Quadrennial 2015 [and] linked to the main theme of PQ ’15: “SharedSpace: Music Weather Politics”. It explores linking new and old information distribution technologies, to create a sense of location that can be experienced and possibly understood through virtual representations of varying histories and languages.

An 8-channel audio system was used for sound dispersal in the New Stage of the National Theatre in Prague, and a max patch was designed for creating and recording the 22’ work

Previous research by the author has involved the investigation of sound shapes produced by the multi- point spatial diffusion of independent spectral bands. Fundamentally two implementations emerged through this research: one that primarily dealt with only the diffusion of spectra (i.e. spectral spatialisation) and another further extension of this approach that accounted for unique frequency-space distributions unfolding through time (i.e. timbre spatialisation implemented in the frequency domain). Through the process of exploring these possible sound shapes, a range of multi-point distributions emerged making it possible to form a categorical set of distinct multi-point distributions. The classifications were informed by the writings of Gary Kendall, Francis Rumsey, Robert Normandeau, Ewan Stefani, and Karen Lauke on spatiality, writings by Albert Bregman on auditory scene analysis (ASA), writings on directionality and immersion within the field of psychoacoustics, writings by Denis Smalley on spectromorphology, spatiomorphology, spatial texture, contiguous space, and non-contiguous space (i.e. zones), writings by Gary Kendall on spectral correlation and decorrelation, and writings by Trevor Wishart on spatial motion.

Mr Cornelis Fuhler: Independent Artist


In 2015, the Splinter Orchestra received an invitation to be part of Tectonics Adelaide in March 20161. Rather than fly directly to Adelaide, 21 members of the Sydney based orchestra decided to travel via land, rehearse and play on the way, and record for a number of days in Mungo National Park, NSW. This paper describes the working methods of the orchestra, their members’ conceptual pieces, and its approach to site specific elements and the environment during this epic week.

Cornelis Fuhler

Since the mid 1980s Cor Fuhler (1964) is a Dutch/Australian active composer, multi instrumentalist, improviser, instrument builder, artist and inventor whose practice is an interdisciplinary one crossing into installation, dance, puppetry, comic strip, music theatre and site-specific performance. | His work has taken him on numerous tours around Europe, Canada, the USA, Indonesia, Japan, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand, and his recordings are...
