Avoiding Our Void is a transatlantic collaboration by William Nurdin and Hal McGee, consisting of combined cassette field recordings.
Nurdin recorded his sounds during June 10, 2013 to August 13, 2013 on a crappy Sony TCM-2 found in Morocco Souk. Original source environmental recordings done in Nancy, Strasbourg, Belfort, Lens, Rouen, Amsterdam, Vire, Longwy...
McGee recorded his sounds in March 2014 on a Panasonic RQ-335A (made in the 1980s) in his neighborhood in Gainesville, Florida. The motor sound of the recorder adds a hypnotic pulse to the entire 94 minute audiowork.
