Album Description

Released:2013-09-13
David Evans has created a refrain for the Australian home past and present on his second solo album Domestic Cinema. Alongside Evans’s trademark use of old manual typewriters and drumkit, the album was made from ‘field recordings in the home’ coupled with recordings of telephone exchange machinery at Melbourne’s Telecommunications
Museum which has been used to connect calls all over Australia during the last 100 years. Evans has taken sounds common to many homes – microwaves ovens, fans, electric toothbrushes, food processors, electric razors, bikes, hair dryers, frying pans, kettles – alongside recordings of various telephone exchanges, dial tones, ringer machines, selector switches, Morse keys, teletype and telex machines from the Telecommunications Museum, and combined these with typewriters, drumkit and some more ‘conventional’ instruments such as bass, harmonium and auto-harp, to create a unique sound collage.
