This project is a collection of sound postcards from Newfoundland, aural objects framed by silence, in the real space of thisisnotashop, Benburb Street. The sound happens within a multi-channel aural field. Auralog is a collaborative project by Anthony Kelly, Slavek Kwi, Seán McCrum and David Stalling. To investigate a longer-term project, Shorelines, we travelled to Newfoundland during June 2008 where we collaborated with a group of Canadian artists and made numerous sound recordings. By presenting the audio postcards we seek to relate the sounds and timeframe of Newfoundland to the specific place of thisisnotashop and to redefine the experience of space and time through electronic and actual sound. The Canadian artists, Angela Antle, Pierre LeBlanc and Anne Troake, will be sending their audio postcards as part of this event. Auralog is supported by The Arts Council and Culture Ireland.
