OUT OF STOCK

An essential and unusual document

Two remarkable and important CDs of - and very diverse - site recordings made in Chernobyl - (occupying the whole of CD1), the Caspian Oilfields around Baku (Azerbaijan) and in various UK sites, including Lakenheath, Dungeness, Sellafield, Snowdonia &c. (CD2).
The CDs are accompanied by a very beautifully made 90pp hardback book filled with a huge number of original colour photographs, background information, interviews and detailed documentation of the recordings, their collection, the history of the environments recorded and the curious and inadvertent inverse relation between human hazard and broader environmental recovery.

Peter Cusack is an artist and musician who is a member of CRiSAP (Creative Research in Sound Arts Practice), and is a research staff member and founding member of the London College of Communication in the University of the Arts London. He was a founding member and director of the London Musicians' Collective.
He is best known as a member of the avant garde musical quartet, Alterations (1978-1986; with Steve Beresford, David Toop, and Terry Day), and the creator of field and wildlife recording-based albums.
