Review Reblog – Shadow of a Shadow by Cyanching —

Shadow of a Shadow by Cyanching
By TJ Norris – Toneshift – August 10, 2019

 

Cyanching | Shadow of a ShadowBezirk Tapes (CS/DL) From London-based Taiwanese composer Cyanching comes an ear-catching debut. Her work, at least at first, comes off subtle with a shroud of harmony slowly emerging from a quiet space. Perhaps Shadow of a Shadow is the sonoric equivalent to mise en abîme, as it transmits what sound […]

” “I try to redefine sampling,” she explains. “If I like a sound, I don’t just record it, I try to recreate it. If I love a bassline on a track for example, I try to play it myself and capture the qualities that attract me. By doing that you create a new sound within an old pattern.”

On the radar…Tissa Mawartyassari

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

#Rolemodels – Jean Eichelberger Ivey

Listening to…Sophie Delafontaine ~ Accord ouvert — a closer listen

Electro-acoustic music is an acquired taste, falling under the same banner as musique concrète and the lesser-used acousmatics. For 20 years, Montreal’s empreintes DIGITALis has been releasing a steady stream of this intricate, fascinating music, bringing award-winning compositions to the attention of larger audiences. But when we write larger, we still don’t mean large. There’s little of the […]

In order to appreciate electro-acoustics, one must lay aside all preconceptions…

#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.

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