AllMusic Review by

Fascinating sounds by one of the pioneers of sound installation pieces. This work was made while he was a producer for the Australian Broadcasting Commission from 1975-1978, and is based on eight-channel field recordings he made for a tape archive of Australian environmental sounds, which were presented as an exhibition called "Sound Sculpture" at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne.
