It’s clear from the outset that Ciani was always tireless, but her energy and commitment to artistic excellence has failed to flag.

Review Reblog – Jessica Grant – Salt the Roots

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Jessica Grant
Title: Salt the Roots
Keywords: alternative electronic experimental eclectica minimalism neoclassical triphop United Kingdom

Let this delightful EP of Jessica Grant be the lighthearted kindness to fill up your heart and ears. With a lovely melodic showcase she brings us the nightly sleepy pleasantness of a electronic composition called ‘cascade’, which feels like the experienced touch of a feather, while at the same time being tightly programmed for a bright energetic friendly future. I heard this as the clock hit 4:00 AM as just opening my eyes from a fantastical dream & instead of walking all over it (like most music does) it became a lovely collider that kept my dreams intact & functioned as a bridge between this reality and the one as experienced as dreamland. I expect that children would be appreciative of this form of music too; I might have to test it out…

Experimental, field recordings, hydrophones.

The Wanderer is a sound composition created from hydrophone recordings from the realm of Zooplankton and Phytoplankton in the Atlantic Ocean, made by Jana on her travels from the North Pole to the Equator.

 

Jana Winderen researches the hidden depths with the latest technology; her work reveals the complexity and strangeness of the unseen world beneath. The audio topography of the oceans and the depth of ice crevasses are brought to the surface.

Les Graciés (2012-ongoing) is the conjunction of Eric Douglas Porter (Afrikan Sciences) and Gaël Segalen (IhearU), a French – American tandem of sister & brother in sound, a evident and karmic encounter of free spirit music makers, searchers of spectrum and rhythm for distinction in sound, in full sympathy with the unknown.

Anna Wærum fragment -al
by Anna Wærum

Electronic collage, experimental, fieldrecording, leftfield  or beautiful wistful otherworldly listening.

“In her sound-collages Anna Wærum blurs the boundaries between language, sound and music. From this particular point, a secretive, personal and dreamy sound-scape emerges. According to Anna the collages are made ”out of a wish to examine the moods, stories and poetic qualities which are buried in our aural world, using the everyday sounds I meet in my life. An exploration of the exact moment when a field-recording looses its concrete meaning and becomes something else, something we hear as music”.

The sound-collages are composed of Anna’s private sound archive consisting of phonerecordings made within the last 3-4 years. This archive is continuous and recorded without the purpose of composition, but as diary-recordings of sounds-bits she wants to remember or sample, of thoughts or conversations she wants to revisit.

I have a huge admiration and love of Game Music and this encompasses all the great things about the genre. Good Game Music should be that which you can listen to without a controller…….
