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 […]

Lovely long interview here….

 

 

This piece explores sonic transmissions and emissions, radio, morse code, sonar, satellite, blue tooth, and wireless. From our efforts to track and transmit into our solar system using radio, to blue tooth connections across the room, this work examines the ephemeral sonic tools we use and the traces these leave as we attempt to reach each other. It is an ode to the fragility, dynamism and determination encapsulated in the ways we attempt to connect.

Contact is an edited version of a live performance at Radiophrenia Festival in Glasgow on May 15, 2019.

Review Reblog – Angelina Yershova ~ CosmoTengri

This has been on my listening list since I read this review, thank you A Closer Listen.

a closer listen

We all have some idea of what the words “shamanistic” and “ritual” mean in the context of music, and in general they’re associated to clear-cut rhythms and repetitive structures thanks to certain historical connections with the African diaspora. But Angelina Yershova comes from a context where those words translate into practices different from those ecstatic meditations many of us have come to identify as ritualistic. CosmoTengri is a collage of “cosmos” and “Tengri”, which is the ancient Turkic/Mongolian word for a deity, the “Blue Eternal Heaven”. As if the sky wasn’t enough, the fusion of the words has a universal aim, emphasizing the sheer vastness of a world that the self-mythologization of reason has endeavored to expropriate, to take all it can without ever giving back. Constantly referring to nature via track titles, the album leads the listener towards environmental communion through a different path to those that entail a…

Review Reblog – Viv Corringham: Until I Learn the Language of Vegetable Mineral — We need no swords

“Using minimalist backings comprised of field recordings or her own looped or multitrackedvoice, these short pieces feel like bizarre diary entries brought to life- unusual and affecting.
