Hall and Staircase are tracks from Radio Flirt by Brandon LaBelle (sound artist and writer) and James Webb (composer). Radio Flirt is designed to be immersive and even hallucinatory. What started out as an installation at the Netherlands Media Art Institute, where radio transmitters were located throughout the building, is now an auditory environment where spoken messages and mutating granular noise draws the listener into a ‘radiophonic’ realm that may originate outside but only comes to life within the listener’s psyche. Radio Flirt became a CD according to the intentions of Brandon LaBelle and James Webb to let the listener fit these recordings to her/his own environment.

Brandon LaBelle’s 365 is an audio diary kept for one year in 1997 which is directly related to the topic of time flow. Each day the artist makes a statement, ‘365 is a significant number’, recording this into a portable cassette recorder. He speaks into the recorder at different times of each day, in different locations to notate the year through daily vocalisation. The diary is both intimate and impersonal, reducing the subject to a single statement and collecting the year into 24 minutes of sound.
