From the beginning, one key aim of Reflections on Process in Sound has been to provide a forum for artists to present their own reflections regarding a wide variety of sound related practices – variety not just in content but also in form. This fourth issue presents perspectives from international locations, it includes collaborative viewpoints and hybrid writings manifesting process and reflections about process.

Chris Weaver explores the creation of Variations for Rooms and a Tone, a collaborative series by the author and Fari Bradley spanning performance and installation, and the development of the piece during a residency programme in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. In For the rest of today partly cloudy (for numerous voices), Melbourne based Catherine Clover presents her expanded species- bridging approach to language, exploring urban birds through a framework of everyday experience.

Postcards from the Volcano is a collaborative project by SoundFjord‘s Helen Frosi and musician Stephan Barrett. Their contribution Walking into the abyss: a meditation on walking, listening and notions of belonging charts the inception and main strands of their proejct, creating works for radio, performance and fixed media. Another collaborative piece is Writers’ habits by David Mollin and Salomé Voegelin. It is a transcript of a talk given by the artists as part of the exhibition Nietzsche Cyclists and Mushrooms at the Kunst Raum Riehen in Switzerland and covers their writing practice. Magz Hall introduces us to one of her recent works, Tree Radio, an out-door installation developed during a residency at and for the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
