New releases now available:
Studies exploring the limits of tape machines. Recordings of low frequencies and noise repeatedly overdubbed to create thick, grainy textures. Found voice samples appear as ghostly commentators.
Monosphere comprises two iterations of monophonic, autonomous computer music. Performed with a custom Max patch, the pieces explore inhuman and unpredictable dynamics, gradually rendered with extreme quietness. Drones, sine wave clusters, gentle noise.
“Disjointed scrapes and rustles push through a layer of fibre-glass noise, the lack of audibility adding to a growing sense of unease…You might be able to relax if you could figure out what was going on, but, as it is, those consoling details are just out of earshot. KcKcKcKrrrrrrcKcK. Bbbbmmmph. Chchinggg.”
Employing subtle sine tone oscillations and field recordings as sonic source material, the two short pieces simply titled “1” and “2” gently explore timbre and presence … This is an excellent, restrained effort, both in terms of content and length, and a thoroughly remedying listen.
brak is available on Soft Error. Edition of 50 C16 cassettes, and infinite downloads.
My new tape, Empty Damage, is out now on falt records, a wonderful musique concréte/collage/sound art imprint based in France.
