Listening to…..

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…….

I came across this release via the Bandcamp interview with Lene Raine. You can find out more here

I came across this via the site Many Many Women, an index of over a 1000 female identifying composers, impovisers and sonic artists.

The various interlocking scenes of experimental and ambient music are geographically dispersed but nonetheless close-knit, and the effects of significant events in these genres ripple out far and wide. 285 more words

Review Reblog – Sharon Gal: Brilliant Fish

We need no swords

galFractal Meat Cuts cassette and download

For those experimental musicians whose remit is the voice, making an explicit connection between the physical apparatus of breath making and its intangible, ethereal products is often a foundational part of the job. The growls, gargles, coos and shrieks of a Phil Minton or Meredith Monk foreground their bodily origins – lungs, throat, diaphragm, mouth – while offering routes through which the human voice can roam free from its usual sociolinguistic constraints. The tension is exacerbated when electronic processing is brought into the mix,  doubling or manipulating this organic source material. Something once thought of as quintessentially human – the voice – is transformed into digitized hybridity.

The work of composer, vocalist and improviser Sharon Gal exemplifies how these opposites – organism and machine, physical and incorporeal – are held in uneasy balance. Gal’s pterodactyl screeches and rutted, throaty gasps channel the satanic chanteuse…

Reblog – ICEBERG THE DRIFT on Sublunar Society

There are an awful lot of modular synthesizers and also releases out there at the moment, but Ch. Webster always manages explore subjects that I wish to find out more about and creates something sonically interesting with the technology….

 

 

You can find ICEBERG THE DRIFT here on Sublunar Society

Christine Webster

Iceberg/The Drift is a poetic and sonic tribute to the Larsen C Ice shelf rift in Antartica which caused during the summer 2017 the complete breaking of the oversized A-68 iceberg, drifting now in the open sea for years, maybe decades.

It’s the second sound work, i composed being directly inspired from a natural catastrophy, like i did with the Fukushima Days project in 2012.

With Iceberg/The Drift, i investigate the structural ice shelf perception and the vibrant life hidden inside it from an organic and abstract perspective, working only with modular synthesis.

The seven tracks are available for preview on Soundcloud and the official release is set to the 12 january 2018 on Sublunar Society
