Sounding/Working Papers was a performative sound translation of printed work from Caren Florance’s Reading Spaces exhibition, presented as part of You Are Here Festival 2017. Reuben Ingall treated Working Papers: torrent (Florance/Gardner) as a graphic score, transcribing sections with a computer keyboard, and using the density of printed marks on the page as a guide to the speed of his typing. His homebrewed software treated each key pressed as an instruction to play tones, sample the gallery’s ambience (including typing noises), or remix its own output. This release is an unedited live recording of the performance, made on 8th April 2017 at East Space, Queen Elizabeth Terrace, ACT.
Limited to twenty copies each of three different covers. Art by Caren Florance and words by Angela Gardner from Working Papers: torrent (2015-17). Includes unlimited streaming of Sounding/Working Papers via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

I have a growing habit of celebrating elections with a souvenir, and this 2010 Federal Election was no different. To celebrate a small window in female supremacy, may I present the Chicks Rule range at Cafe Press. Apologies: thanks to my residency abroad, I didn’t get to produce anything printed by hand, but I couldn’t let the moment pass… there are t-shirts, both long and short-sleeved in sizes that fit everyone from babies to large people, plus stickers, mugs and totes.
