LISTENING TO…

Viridescens
by Francesco Cavaliere & Tomoko Sauvage

experimental, ambient, electroacoustic, electronic, modern classical

Francesco Cavaliere and Tomoko Sauvage embody a tactile audio visual display, radiating the colour green into sounds and painting meditative music…For their installation and performance, Cavaliere and Sauvage assemble a green cabinet of curiosities – an instrumentarium combining water, glass, clay, bamboo xylophones, metallophones and synthesizers. Tomoko describes in an interview: “When you are actually surrounded by green musical instruments, it has a calming effect as if you were looking at a forest or mountain.”

Sonae ~ Summer — a closer listen

Summer may not sound like summer, but that’s okay, because the season has just ended in the Northern Hemisphere.  Instead, Sonae‘s album is an ode to a lost summer ~ the summer of 2020 ~ and a warning that future summers may head in the same direction.

Sonae ~ Summer — a closer listen

Slowly catching up but here’s one that nearly got away but didn’t thanks to ACL : )

LONGLISTEN

Eclectic Electronic Soundscapes –
Sometimes tracks are just too long for the usual playlist I put together so I decided to put together bite sized playlists for longer tracks.
Bite sized in number of artists but not scrimping on the length and quality of the listening : )
Take some time and immerse in the sound waves.

As with all the playlists, they are jumping off points to discoveries. They are not meant to be definitive. Just let some of the tracks play onto the next….follow up on “sounds like”….see who’s following, many artists follow other artists….

Artists are Andrea Parkins, OR poiesis, Pom2B, Susana Lopez and Sabina Hyoju Ahn.
