DVD : Skyros Carnival, 2004 (11’38) Video by Steven Feld, with photographs by Dick Blau, edited by Jeremiah Ra Richards. Glimpses of participants becoming as the staging and performance of carnival is revealed through a dialogue of sounds, still (black and white) and moving (color) images.

CD : Voices of the Bells (32’15). Recordings by Steven Feld, Mixed by Bill Boaz, 4th World Recording Studios, Santa Fe. Carnival bells shape the acoustics of space and time, passing near and far with a mounting excess of repetitions, noise, and density. Three sound essays witness to their capacity to bring out or drown voices and music, creating new forms of sonic intimacy.

1-Inside the Taverna…the social warmth of talking while dining to recordings of familiar island songs is overlapped through window panes by the swelling outdoor processions of the yeri (11’51).

2-Outside the Disco… young people enter or leave with door openings that pump bass-rich hip hop sounds into the swirling bells of mingling yeri Advisory: explicit lyrics (8’50).

3-Thundering Bells…up-close and in the center of the mid-evening action, yeri pass, circle, and jump to ever wilder heights in a figure and ground dance of acoustic intensity (11’32).
