As I have been talking with the various shop owners regarding the installation I have noticed my ideas for the presentation of the content becoming more fixed.  As I have said earlier before in the blog, my thinking has been that there will be a daytime as well as an evening version of the work, with the sounds being more related to the actual shops during the day – so the Sun Tanning Parlour will have its own sounds broadcasting at various times of the day, as will, for example, the book shop, and so on.  In the evening though, the installation’s  sounds wil become more mixed up with every shop window broadcasting at some point all of the sounds relating to all of the different retailers, and interspersed with these sounds will be recomposed segments of my recordings with the church choir.  The more I think about it, the more I like this juxtaposition of the religious and the commercial as it brings up all sorts of interesting connections and accompanying thoughts.  I might need to revisit the choir though to do some more recording as I’ll need a lot of material for this plan to work well.
