On the radar…Tissa Mawartyassari

Tissa Mawartyassari’s Harsh Noise Compositions Are Sonic “Ghost Stories”

Her music is often composed using field recordings and sounds sourced from location. Besides her recorded output and live performances, she has contributed to artist residencies that have taken her all over […]

Lovely long interview here….

 

 

This piece explores sonic transmissions and emissions, radio, morse code, sonar, satellite, blue tooth, and wireless. From our efforts to track and transmit into our solar system using radio, to blue tooth connections across the room, this work examines the ephemeral sonic tools we use and the traces these leave as we attempt to reach each other. It is an ode to the fragility, dynamism and determination encapsulated in the ways we attempt to connect.

Here are a couple of releases that really caught my ear when on a journey into sound art.

Obviously this influential piece …

7704A – Tiger Balm
by Annea Lockwood

Experimental, chants, folk, meditation, traditional…and cat purring

“Each piece is concerned with evoking a force-sound, making this force/energy materialize and become quite clear to all there. The players then can’t just simply ‘learn to play’ my pieces, They’ll find themselves going through a training course to discover what is meant by sounds and their energy. To discover how to transcend through themselves. To learn the fine edge of sound as a destructive or misapplied force (un-perceived tone perhaps) and sound as transformer or as something wholeness making.”


Secondly this beautiful strangeness to the ear which is on my Christmas list –

Realm
by Realistic Monk (Carl Stone & Miki Yui)

Abstract, electronic, experimental.

#Rolemodels – Sound Art

So you know when I said I had a lot in my draft file, well here’s something I put together in 2015 when I started this journey and forgot to post but fits really well in #Rolemodels.

I have often wondered…

WHAT IS SOUND ART?

This was part of a series on Sound  Art and the women who have been and are, at the forefront of this highly eclectic and diverse art form but I never posted this until now…

ICYMI – Heejin Jang – Trouble in the Camp — Yeah I Know It Sucks

At the moment, I am in semi offline state trying to get some projects of my own finished. However, I will not be abandoning things completely and anyway it gives me a good chance to finally post things that have mysteriously been left in my drafts, for a long time.

Let’s begin with this excoriating in a good way release from 2017 –

Reblog – Album of the Day: Eve Maret, “No More Running” — Bandcamp Daily

 

The Nashville artist’s work has the slippery strangeness of electronic music from the late ’70s and early ’80s.
