Belgian sound artist Peter Lenaerts (now Sydney-based) "works to reveal everything that hides beneath silence and the seeming absence of sound, or beyond emptiness". He talks to Bec about field recordings of emptiness and the spaces between sounds, the pursuit of quietness in the documentary film Quies (co-created with Ezra Eeman) and sending listeners to sleep through the performance work MicroSleepDub.

Listen here for the interview, some of Peter's sounds of the outback and his new work, Non-Place.

About this program

A show about sleep, dreams, nightmares and what happens in your head after dark. Meditations from the edges of consciousness, exploring circadian rhythms, mental health, what keeps us awake and helps us drift. Interviews, field recordings, sound art, creative audio and ambient music to keep you company in the dark.

SleepTalker started as an independent podcast in 2014, and now joins the Triple R grid as a weekly two-hour live show.
