A CD project presented at the 9th International Symposium on Electronic Arts (ISEA98), Liverpool, UK.
Audio Research Editions was founded by Colin Fallows in 1998 as a limited edition imprint for artists' soundworks. Audio Research Editions CDs contain soundworks by a broad range of international sound artists, experimental composers, noise makers and other audio creators. Using the limited edition print as a formal model, the imprint has to date published over two hundred works by artists from over twenty countries. Audio Research Editions treats the compact disc as an art space with each edition containing a themed audio exhibition that can be experienced in either linear or random modes.
HOPE is a limited edition CD collection of one-minute soundworks by international sound artists, experimental composers, noise makers and other audio creators. Contributors were invited to create an original recording of one-minute duration for the CD on the theme of HOPE - whether personal or universal; directly, obliquely, humorously, ironically, romantically, musically, noisily, lyrically or in their title.
