2 limited edition CDs on Fluxus artist Ben Pattersons own label, distributed by Alga Marghen. "The Liverpool Song Lines (2257"): for many year Ben Patterson has been fascinated by the so-called song lines of the Australian Aborigine. Musically, these songs for solo voice, sometimes accompanied by beating-sticks, are not especially stirring for Western ears. Rather, for the artist, it is the concept underlying the text which is remarkable. These songs describe flora, fauna and places which are sacred in the mythology of the Aborigine. But these birds and trees and rivers and rocks are not imaginary or mythological inventions. Thus, if the set of songs is sung in the correct sequence, they link a series of landmarks in such a way as to provide an aural map, guiding the traveller from here to there in a trackless Australian out-back. The River Mersey (2314"): from Ellesmere Port to Bootle; or, from Bootle to Ellesmere Port; or, in both directions in the same time. The graphic score of this piece is a site-inspired, adaptation of Ben Pattersons early work, Duo-1961, for Voice and String Player (issued by Alga Marghen in Ben Patteron Early Works CD) for the performance with the Frakture Big Band at the Bluecoat Arts Centre, Liverpool, Tuesday 29 October 2002. Compact disc packaged in mini-LP style card sleeve and full colour inner wallet." - Audio Research Editions.

"Surveying Western Philosophy using China Tools (3345"): Western philosophy is thought to have begun along the Ionian coast of Asia Minor in the sixth century B.C. Chinese astrology is thought to have begun in China in the thirtieth century B.C. Would a survey using the tools of an ancient Chinese imperial science give us new and fresh reading of Western philosophy? The year in which a person was born is of singular importance in Chinese astrology as each year is governed by an animal sign. In total there are twelve such animal signs, beginning with the Rat and ending with the Pig. Art as Thinking - Thinking as Art (3726"): a lecture by Ben Patterson at Liverpool School of Art and Design, 25 November 2003." - Audio Research Editions.
