Today’s Discovery – Feed Goals by Enchanted Lands

 

“…assemblages, showing intricate weaving and arranging of sound materials. Her tracks form strange scenes or frames where just when the sound seems to settle down a turnover point is reached and a delicate change of balance results in a whole new plateau. Receiving cues from ASMR, impact blasts, and natural phenomena, these elements become sound ingredients that add microscopic texture, sensuality and depth to their complementary sounds. Moving beyond any high or low fidelity, the nature of the sounds blend together into a space where compression artefacts, phone mic’ing and high-tech sound design mingle fluently. From weeping wind harps to whispered confessionals to immense trance reveries, the result is a sound that eludes itself and forces the ear to expect some curious inversion around every corner.”

Couldn’t attempt to describe this any better – A sonic delight.

Web Focus – Between Air and Electricity

Several of the loudspeaker sculptures used in Huba de Graaff’s opera Lautsprecher Arnolt. © Huba de GraaffIn her opera Lautsprecher Arnolt (2004) Huba de Graaff decided to have most roles played by loudspeakers. Only the main character—the writer Arnolt Bronnen (1895-1959)—is played by a human actor, Marien Jongewaard. Arnolt himself is literally a “loud speaker”, screaming…

“BETWEEN AIR AND ELECTRICITY

This site documents examples discussed in my book Between air and electricity – Microphones and loudspeakers as musical instruments. Although most of these pieces and performances are best experienced live, these audio and video documentations might be helpful to get a better understanding of the music.”

Review Reblog – Marta Sap – Breaths

Something different and a breath of fresh air – poor pun not intended.

 

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Marta Sap
Title: Breaths
Keywords: 3city alternative electronic world didgeridoo fox peoples space woman Gdańsk

As long as Marta Sap delivers her breaths we would be musically in for a good ride. Here she explores grooves and moods with the didgeridoo as the staring middle point and when she feels like it; electronica on the side. Let me mumble away about the tracks that this release is the home for: The fiery first one named ‘Jungle City’ sets the mood into a dancing one. With the moving sound of a active didgeridoo as the acidic baseline, the artist named Marta Sap is armed enough to deliver a incredible active expression in rhythm & vibe that feels naturally earthy. It easily connects to the pleasure center of the brain, tricking the endorphins to come out and make us feel happy and gay. ‘Fast Drivers’ is also a great active didgeridoo…

Review Reblog – Wetwe Feat. Tatyana Kalmykova – Okoloreki

It’s been a strange few weeks and I haven’t been able to keep up with things here but I’m kicking myself that I missed this…It is a wondrous thing to listen to…

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Wetwe Feat. Tatyana Kalmykova
Title: Okoloreki

I don’t know much about this music as I evidently avoided all the information that came with it as it appeared through our illustrious request form, but from my own ears and mind I could make up that this was a bit of a holistic revelation in sound ways. It was a calming one, that featured the prominent voice of a certain Tatyana Kalmykova that seemed to sing among the walls of ruins, or perhaps a still standing church with great acoustics. Sometimes her voice gets bounced into a room in which it still feels warm, yet the acoustics feel flat, a bit as if the bigness gets suddenly beamed through some old time radio.

But it’s not all about Tatyana Kalmykova’s voice, it’s also pretty much…

Review Reblog – Heejin Jang – Trouble in the Camp

I came across Heejin Jang – Binary Breath via YIKIS last year and was interested to hear this new release. On listening, it’s excoriating…but in a good way.

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Heejin Jang
Title: Trouble in the Camp
Keywords:electronic experimental avant-garde experimental indie rock noise psychedelic rock synth United States
Label: Doom Trip

Unleashed on the special day of spookiness, the one that people named ‘Halloween’ are the fearful sounding spooky sounds from ‘Trouble in the Camp’ by Heejin Jang. It is best to hear it in complete darkness with the sound up loud and yourself hiding underneath a blanket of comfort. This music will bring out the shimmering demons of the night, the creepy crawlers & the audio ghouls that hammer their wooden sticks of magic in fierce-full depths, ready to haunt you for some poisoned candy.

Some of them come across cold and slimy, as if the ghosts of the many snails you have stepped on all throughout your life had now come to scare the hell out of you for a good old-time case of revenge…
