Artist Statement:


    When I first heard the word “audio-clip” I was immediately interested and decided to do something about it, and while looking through raw material, considering a series of “clips” I proceeded to make a “run” with some sounds which had their source on a series of works under the general title of URBIS which related to popular culture, with modern day myths etc. The “run” surprised me in its powerful immediacy so much so, that I could not bring myself to do anything else to it, and in spite of formally composing some further clips, I had to send out this clip as it happened, under the stream of consciousness principle.

    I must gratefully acknowledge three sounds that I use in this clip which were originally made by my colleague and friend Jeremy Arden and given to me while we were collaborating on a joint composition. Urbis was composed and realized in 1993 at home workstation.
