about

Sound pieces produced from Mini Disc recordings
made in Japan 2002.
Mastered by Thomas Köner.
Published in 2005.

Simon Keep aka Holkham is a young Londoner, composer, involved in a series of sound installations. More recently, out of a desire for people to hear/think about sound in a more conscious way, he has been working on a public arts project with Vital Arts at the Royal London Hospital. He has also been working with sound outside of the human audibility, mainly radio waves. Over the Summer of 2002 he created a sound triptych for an exhibition in Memphis called "life/afterlife", (based on this inaudible sound.) His up-coming project is working again with Why Not Associates on a sixteen-channel sound installation at the "Cultural Institute of Macau" in China, a video piece filming the sound of moths and a recording project collecting sound samples from England's least noise polluted spaces.

In confine of silence
""The original sound installation consisted of three headphones playing back three different sounds. Through the first set of headphones the sound of snow was heard, close up and sounding like dust or sugar. The second was the sound of a Buddhist monk meditating in an empty room. The last was the sound of volcanic steam seeping out of the sides of a mountain. Alongside the headphones were one thousand origami cranes. The paper was made from photo snapshots of Japan and when made the cranes were hung in ten rows of one hundred. To make one thousand origami cranes is a Japanese symbol of health and longevity. Sound pieces produced from Mini Disc recordings I made in Japan 2002. The audio has been extracted from Hokkaido's volcanic snow-covered landscape. The composition and patterns of the sound are based on the way I heard these sounds; they are inspired by my experience of listening. One of the recordings was made inside a temple. During "Zazen" meditation the sound of an empty room was opening out to me and I was hearing sounds deep into the room. One evening I recorded the sound of an empty midnight landscape, again I was listening into the silence and into the distance. Sounds would ring out from the distance, then a split second later I would hear silent space again."
Simon Keep

Silence as poetic system
Walking through snow, my feet crunching on the snow and ice, kicking the snow, sounding like sugar, snow dust. Night-time recording, the silence outside the cabin, red, green and yellow stars, the flashing lights of city. Hearing emptiness, no sound then sound, the imprint of sound in my mind, reverberations of sound in my head and the contemplation of sound. Zazen, the sound of an empty room, listening deep into a room for inherit sound Volcanic eggs, the sound of steam seeping out of a mountainside and poaching eggs.
