This is a concrete/laptop music project by Graham Williams, completely based upon animal sounds subjected to computerized manipulation. Though I’ve listened to many works where birds, cats and sheep are protagonists, Hedren gets a good mark because he maintains things quite simple, even when timbral distortion gets crunchy beyond recognizability. By using repeats, morphing and washes of noise, Williams throws an useful bridge linking a rough country life environment to a less than joyous suburban ambience where the main purpose is making it through the day without hoping too much for the future.
