Sounds from Dangerous Places by Peter Cusack, Thornton Heath/Berlin:ReR MEGACORP/ Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD, 2012; ISBN: 978-1-907828-01-0. 80pp + 2x CDs, hardback, full colour.
Two remarkable and important CDs of very diverse site recordings made in Chernobyl – (occupying the whole of CD1), the Caspian Oilfields around Baku (Azerbaijan) and in various UK sites, including Lakenheath, Dungeness, Sellafield, Snowdonia &c. (CD2). The CDs are accompanied by a very beautifully made hardback book filled with a huge number of original colour photographs, background information, interviews and detailed documentation of the recordings, their collection, the history of the environments recorded and the curious and inadvertent inverse relation between human hazard and broader environmental recovery. An essential and unusual document.

CD 2 (ReR PC4): Caspian oil and UK sites (39 tracks 76:24, plus PDF imgage file)
