The sound works made by the four artists commissioned for part of the EVA project are available on the AHA website for you to download (free).  Artists Jan Blake, David Kemp, Elsepth Owen and Karen Wallis had never created sound works before EVA and they all worked in very different media, in very different ways from one another.  The podcasts are as diverse as the artists.  Go here for more information about the project and to download the podcasts.
