Eamon Sprod is a sound artist working primarily under the pseudonym tarab, exploring urban locations through re-contextualised collected sounds and tactile gestures with found objects, formed into dynamic, psycho-geographical compositions. He has performed in Australia, Europe, Japan, North America and South America and his compositions have been published by labels including Naturestrip, 23five, Kaon, Unfathomless, Semperflorens, Recorded Fields and Trente Oiseaux.
Tarab (Eamon Sprod) explores re-contextualised collected sounds and tactile gestures formed into dynamic, psycho-geographical compositions inspired by discarded things, found things, crawling around in the dirt, junk, the ground, rocks, dust, wind, walking aimlessly, scratchy things, decay and most if not all the things he hears and sees.
More than simply documenting a given site, tarab is interested in a direct engagement with our surrounds, teasing out half narratives, visceral sensation, false leads and heightened awareness.
