Jonty Harrison’s Voyages

One of the big beasts roaming the electroacoustic savannah, Jonty Harrison combines technological sophistication and psychological subtlety with insatiable hunger for sound. His hour-long Going / Places ranges far and wide, quite literally, grazing materials from around the globe: railroad horns from Ohio; bubbling geothermal pools in Iceland; calls to prayer in Istanbul; Mexican bagpipers; frogs in Borneo; market callers in Melbourne. A travelogue of bewildering discontinuities, it rushes on with the uplifting fluency of a dream. Voyages also features Espaces cachés, a series of scenes and apparitions also crafted from found sounds.

—Julian Cowley, The Wire
