10.12.09 - 1/f Noise | Smoothing Out The Press - 59:55 - 151 kbps [VBR]
1/f Noise - While teaching sound art in Cincinnati Ohio's art school DAAP, Montgomery organized sonic tours of the Ceramics Department. The audience was blindfolded and led one by one down 8 flights of stairs into a series of listening stations where ventilators, burning kilns and other machinery were in use (2008).
Smoothing Out The Press was composed using the Sound of Sanding from the Crest Hardware Show plus recordings made at Ben Owen's Middle Press in Brooklyn while printing the Ministry of Lamination's Almost Blank Notebook letterpress edition (2007).
