CUSACK, PETER: Baikal Ice
In 2004 Peter took a field trip out to lake Baikal to record the ice breaking up (it's a dramatic annual event) and to make an aural document of the environs (port, jettys, generators, the trans-siberian express, settlements &c.). These are beautifully recorded sound-in-time snapshots, with excellent visual co-documentation. Such works belong nowhere and begin to constitute a new genre; this is one of the pioneering works in that genre.
