In Progress is a sound narrative with a rhythm, even melody, composed entirely of mechanical sounds. A hotel trash compactor in Bergen, Norway, dealing with the remains of a previous night’s party. Pile driving equipment in Victoria, Canada, shutting down after a day of building the new ferry boat landing pier. Wind chimes dancing in a strong east wind. Rain on a metal roof. A collage of sounds from a Maker Faire in Portland, Oregon. Electromagnetic radiation recorded by spacecraft exploring our solar system, and beyond. Air rushing through hotel front doors, and around the edges of an airplane window. A sound installation inside a traditional thatch cottage in Londonderry/Derry, Northern Ireland. An FM carrier signal after the failure of the audio transmission. Squeaking doors, thumping refrigerator compressors. Construction of a new house. Underneath London’s Millennium Bridge. A wall of corrugated paper in Copenhagen. Passengers boarding a ferry. Sound installations samples. A large scale printer finishing a poster. As John Cage told us, everywhere we listen, there is always something to be heard in progress.
