1. Classroom Projects from Trunk Records
I’ve always collected albums made by schools. Most are terrible. A few are not. This is a collection of the more wondrous ones I have found.
Featured on the album are small primary school choirs or groups singing obscure folk songs to full-blown avant-garde experiments written and performed by children still at secondary or grammar school. As far as dating goes, the earliest recording is 1959, the latest 1977. It has taken a few years to put together just because the records are so hard to find. Also, for this very special project I used the artistic talents of Julian House for the sleeve, as he is a fellow collector and enthusiast of such recordings.

  3. Aki Onda‘s cassette collection consists of thousands of audio tapes and much more sonic memories. Keen on bringing personal sonic experiences to unusual places the artist reveals, disturbs and absorbs the past and present sonic energies of the spaces he performs. Soundry went out to meet with Aki on the occasion of a new chapter in the cassette memories series, performed at the beaux-arts de Paris.

    The project radio aporee ::: maps started in 2006. it is a global soundmap dedicated to phonography, field recording (and related practices) and the art of listening. it connects sound recordings and places, in order to create a sonic cartography, open to the public as a collaborative project.
