Alan Dunn Audio UK 2015


The Black Forest 2'30

‘The Black Forest’ is a harrowing 2’30” composition from a set of found recordings originally labelled “Recordings made of traumatised daughter, aged 10, The Black Forest, Sony Ericsson mobile phone, 2007.” Dunn acquired these recordings five years later and due to the intimate content, ‘The Black Forest’ is only to be listened to on headphones in the woods.

Alan Dunn studied at Glasgow School of Art and The Art Institute of Chicago and completed a PhD at Leeds Beckett University on the relationship between sound art and the everyday. His curated 10xCD opus ‘The sounds of ideas forming’ brought together content from Andy Warhol, David Bowie, Yoko Ono, Einstürzende Neubauten, Carol Kaye and Douglas Gordon, alongside writers and art students.
