Burrard Inlet: An Audio Portrait, Radiophrenia, Glasgow, November 2020

“Radiophrenia is a temporary art radio station – a two-week exploration into current trends in sound and transmission arts. The broadcast schedule includes a series of 20 newly commissioned radio works, live shows and pre-recorded features. As in previous years the majority of the programme is made up from selections submitted to an international open call for sound art and radio works.”


For Radiophrenia 2020 I submitted a piece entitled Burrard Inlet: An Audio Portrait. My blurb:

A 13-minute mix of recordings from along Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet shoreline. Starting from underneath a flapping flagpole at Canada Place, from where we hear a series of horns sounding out the first four notes of the Canadian national anthem (a daily noon occurrence), we encounter the sounds of grain terminals, seaplanes, and the percussive thump of cars over Lions Gate Bridge, before taking a ferry across Vancouver Harbour to listen to waves breaking at Starboat Cove.

The piece was transmitted at 8am on the 21st November 2020.
