Jimmy Behan is second relay artist

Jimmy Behan has been unveiled as the second Relay artist and his piece is now available to listen to on the Relay site.

Jimmy is an Irish composer working with acoustic and electronic sounds, computer processing and field recordings. HIs debut album ‘Days Are What We Live In’ was released on Elusive Recordings in 2004. Awarded M.Phil in Music and Media Technologies from Trinity College, Dublin in 2006. Released ‘In The Sudden Distance‘ EP on Zymogen in June 2008.

Jimmy says of his Relay contribution:

“My piece attempts to describe an exaggerated sonic portrait, or caricature, of my own empty house while I am sleeping. Playing on the old question of “if a tree falls in the forest�”, I tried to imagine what the house, and various objects in it, (ornaments, cutlery, clocks, the ticking of an alarm sensor) might sound like if it could hear itself as I slept. I imagined these sounds to be completely different to what I might hear were I to be awake listening to it.’

Commissioned by the Model Arts and Niland Gallery as part of model::offsite, Relay is an online music project curated by musician John Lambert (aka Chequerboard). Lambert will invite a selection of irish and international sound artists and musicians to contribute to Relay over the duration of the project. He will record an initial sound work and then relay this piece to the first contributor. Each work will be published online as it is completed, and the Relay page will map the path of this dialogue of ideas between artists
