Review Reblog – Şeb-i Yelda by R.A.N.

R.A.N. | Şeb-i Yelda just shows what can be done creatively with techno and for me, what a find.

Karlrecords (12″/DL)

Berlin-based Turkish artist Hüma Utku, better known as R.A.N. (short for Roads at Night) releases her first recording since 2015 with a four track 12″ EP, Şeb-i Yelda – and it opens with the title track. A disgorged drone roams freely, and its bloated mane crisscrosses through the entire sound space in bulky air-infused layers.  The atmosphere initially finds equity between the ambient and the industrial. Here and there its encrusted with a sparse cragged percussive effect until a beat is formed, and you suddenly start to experience why this is a crystal clear 12″ rather than another format. Utku adds something akin to a high-hat and other beat-adjacent rhythms, all the while a mysterious discord on traditional musics of the Middle East emerge, but done with restraint in the underbelly of an otherwise funky exterior.  The track concludes with something akin to…

This week’s podcast questions how identity is coded into the battlecries shouted by characters in video games. By exploring the tools that sound studies provides to understand the various dynamics of identity, this podcast aims to provoke a conversation about how identity is encoded within the design of games. The all too invisible intersection between sound, identity, and code reveals the ways that sound can help explain the interior logic of the games and other digital systems. Here, Milena Droumeva and Aaron Trammell discuss how femininity and sexuality have been coded within game sounds and consider the degree to which these repetitive and objectifying tropes can be resisted by players and designers alike.

Berlin-Lichtenberg
Tram M8, 21: Herzbergstr/Siegfriedstr
18:00 PÜNKTLICH!!!!

The participants in the SoundBoxes Workshop will present an immersive, surround-sound experience inspired by the works of Alvin Lucier, Pauline Oliveros, John Grzinich, David Tudor, Gordon Monahan and others, performed in a darkened room for an eyes-closed audience. In the piece, a swarm of individual, simple sound sources such as tones and textures are modulated and moved through the space physically by the performers to create a complex sonic environment. Delicate and intimate sounds pass closely near the bodies and ears of the audience, while stronger, more extreme sounds occur at the edges of the space to give a sense of the architecture of the room and the objects in it.

PLEASE ARRIVE AT 18:00 SHARP FOR THIS PERFORMANCE!

And then stick around for IPAs and a chance to demo some of theMacumbista.net

TODAYS DISCOVERY – P0STM0RTEM

Many thanks to Yeah I know it Sucks for leading me to Todays Discovery – p0stm0rtem

The colour of sound: green

I posted the previous series which included the Primary colours and look forward to future episodes on the secondary colours. Love the way the sound reflects the colour complexity.

Courtesy to Sounds Like Noise for this interesting series and posts.

SOUNDS LIKE NOISE

green

A short sample of Green.

To hear the full track go to the Soundproof website.

The second series of The Colour of Sound has commenced on Radio National’s Soundproof program. The first episode in the series is Green.

Green charts the story of the German scientist and philosopher David Gottlob Diez as he deliberates on the connection between sound, the planets, and colour. Diez connected green with Venus, its aurora shrouding the planet in a veil of celestial static.

Tune in to the rest of the ROY-G-BIV colour and sound spectrum over the next few weeks.
