  Work Details  
  Arriving 2 days early for masterclass series ‘The Art of Immersive Soundscapes’ in July 2007 Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, I found myself in the cheapest place in town; The Empire Hotel. 8 hours by Greyhound bus from Winnipeg airport across flat, rolling endless prairie. The room was $25 a night and it hadn’t been changed in 25 years. Everything was run down and battered. A Friday night. alone in the prairies. I locked myself into my room and scanned the FM radio frequency band searching for company. 2 hours of recordings were made and this material was shaped into an 8 minute sound composition.
