This work is a fictional narrative constructed from the fragments of lyric poems written in the late 1980's. It is a 29 minute journey along the Pan American highway beginning on the northern borders of Guatemala, and traveling through Central America. This surreal journey ends somewhere in Panama. Two actors read the poems over a soundscape of music and audio samples in a manner similar to a "radio play". Originall recorded in 1991, Notes and Songs has been exhibitied as an audio-visual installation piece in the exhibition entitled Crossroad at the Clarington Gallery (Bowmanville, Ontario) and as part of the exhibition To Hear Is To See (ACC Gallery - Weimar, Klanggalerie - Berlin, Germany, Kammgarn - Forum Vebikus, Schaffhausen, Switzerland, St. Polten Sound Tower, Austio, YYZ Gallery, Toronto Canada)

Poems and soundscape by W. Mark Sutherland

featuring the voices of Nadia Ross and James O'Reilly
