North Head (2003)

3 min 48 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"...a kind of tribute to Toru Takemitsu and Japan. The sound sequence contains screaming Japanese students in the North Head tunnels (reacting to my guitar noises as I was recording in there). Those tunnels had been used as a defence position against possible Japanese invaders in the 2nd world war.”
