Here are a couple of releases that really caught my ear when on a journey into sound art.
Obviously this influential piece …
7704A – Tiger Balm
by Annea Lockwood
Experimental, chants, folk, meditation, traditional…and cat purring
“Each piece is concerned with evoking a force-sound, making this force/energy materialize and become quite clear to all there. The players then can’t just simply ‘learn to play’ my pieces, They’ll find themselves going through a training course to discover what is meant by sounds and their energy. To discover how to transcend through themselves. To learn the fine edge of sound as a destructive or misapplied force (un-perceived tone perhaps) and sound as transformer or as something wholeness making.”
Secondly this beautiful strangeness to the ear which is on my Christmas list –
by Realistic Monk (Carl Stone & Miki Yui)
Abstract, electronic, experimental.
