About Errollyn: reflections on the artist as creator and performer is a collection of audio observations by Errollyn Wallen and sound engineer Gerry O’Riordan on specific imperatives and points within the recording process of Errollyn’s first solo album, Errollyn, that was released in 2005. Through this examination of specific material, she considers her practice, and wider concerns, as a composer. A new essay by Andrew Blake, ‘Making Errollyn: making Errollyn Wallen’ draws on inside knowledge about the closed-door activities of composer, performer, and sound recorder in the recording studio. Mark Goddard has designed accompanying text and image cards which underline specific extracts from the audio reflections. Together, the sound and text pinpoint audio clues within the original tracks, and the album as a whole, that highlight the delicate blending of choices that take place in the studio.
