Dallas Simpson – A Short Journey of Silica

[PT052]

Dallas Simpson

“A Short Journey of Silica”

This work explores a shift of perspective from my current work. By including of elements of personal vocal narrative, which were first explored in ‘abha’ (1995/6), this work emphasises the presence of the artist as an archetypical environmental occupant and participant, a principle that lies at the heart of my work. In the first movement improvised location performance, often a major feature of my work, is reduced to a mere, but significant fragment. In the 2nd and 3rd movements, there are further environmental observations from a personal perspective tracking a particular trajectory of silica usage through human activity.

1st Movement – Crucible.

Silica immersed in the crucible of natural forces. The sea as a dynamic, wave-active element, with the destructive forces of rolling, the breaking and grinding of flint and chert stone, wave motion stresses produce sand over millennia – the raw material containing silica from which glass is manufactured. The human presence has metaphoric as well as literal significance in the responsible and sustainable use and management of this and all our natural resources.

2nd Movement – The Milk Round.

Part 1 – The Dairy Crest Depot.. Preparation for delivery, organization, distribution. The constructive and organizational forces of industrial, metal, mechanical motor motion operate together with human activity where silica is integrated as recyclable packaging for a consumable product.

Part 2 – The Milk Round Delivery. Silica embedded as container vessel within human, animal and mineral, intrinsic and extrinsic elements. Human activity takes place within a context of a wider urban ecosystem, with allusions to the co-existence of animal and human social behaviour in conversation.

3rd Movement – The Glass Collection. (Contains very occasional strong language.)

Following usage and consumption, silica disposal now becomes a recycling process as part of local government policy in an urban social context.

Notes.

1st Movement – Recorded on location at Milford on Sea (17/11/16), 2nd Movement – Recorded at Dairy Crest, Nottingham (21/09/09), 3rd Movement – Recorded at Carlton, Nottingham (05/01/17).
The artist would like to thank Dairy Crest and operative Pete for permission to record on their premises and in the electric milk float. All recordings were made in a single take live on location and have been edited for this work using Cockos Reaper software.

Recorded in binaural stereo using custom in-ear binaural techniques. Microphones DPA4060, recorders Tascam DAP1 (2nd Movement), Sound Devices 744T (1st and 3rd Movements). Optimised for headphone listening.

Eugen Bäcker – Fimfewurdan

[PZO008]

Eugen Bäcker

“Fimfewurdan”

The album is based on five melodic idioms. As any other repeated action their frequency occurs neither with monotony nor with irreflection but with a kind of advertence. This frequency gradually organizes all structures of consciousness, giving birth to genuine contemplation. ‘however, I desire to speak five words with my mind so that I may instruct others also, rather than ten thousand words in a tongue’ (1 Cor. 14:19).

Elsa Bergman + Óscar Santis – Errante

[pn117]

Elsa Bergman + Óscar Santis

“Errante”

“Elsa Bergman (double bass) and Óscar Santis (Likembe, mixer, soundboxes, effects, computer), deliver us a generous recording of their first encounter as a duo of improvisers. The album, called Errante, was conceived in its fullness in the magical landscapes of Amereida.

The result is translated in a mixture of exquisite and varietal languages, distinguished by the hypnotic seduction corresponding to the interpretation of Elsa Bergman, who in accordance with her worldview manages to articulate a more onomatopoeic and percussive line as compared to Óscar Santis, the owner of a structured and ferrous sonic vocabulary.

These conversations, generated in an autopoietic state, deliver us soundscapes cemented with Nordic emulsions and the saline corrosion accumulated for decades in the territory of Ciudad Abierta (Open City).

The atmosphere that Errante offers us is divided in seven electrifying cuts, with “Autopista” being the most extensive track (12:05), which ends in magnificent fashion this exchange of musical expectations y concerns that pass through the fields of minimalist electronica and the indelible legacy of free-jazz.”

Thuoom – Fokus

[thump318]

Thuoom

“Fokus”

The fifth Thuoom full-length, Fokus, is filled with rhythmic songs soaked in IDM influences, and at places the record is the most playful Thuoom has ever been. With these songs Tuomo used a more layered approach than before and more than half of the songs employ sine waves. Furthermore, there are three songs where the beat has been formed by manipulated beatboxing.

Instruments used on this record: acoustic guitar, beatbox, cutlery, garlic, garlic press, glitches, human voice, knives, plates, scissors, sine waves, sparkling water, water bottle.

M-PeX

“Carinae”

In Carinae, M-PeX explores the conceptual symbiosis between the original sound of the portuguese guitar, to which is added the sound of André Coelho’s contrabass, and the ambient electronic sound which is born out of an experimental and digital manipulation of sounds captured on the portuguese guitar for the acoustic themes.

Far Rainbow – Somwhere Out There Was the Wave

[LOR 083]

Far Rainbow

“Somwhere Out There Was the Wave”

Far Rainbow create vast neo-psychedelic slabs of gradually developing sound. “Somewhere Out There Was The Wave” is perhaps their darkest and purest release so far- a single expanding piece created from murky drones and loops and ominous percussion, the work has enormous dynamic control and intensity that sustains interest for its full duration.

“Somewhere Out There Was The Wave” was
improvised live to tape by Far Rainbow
(Emily Mary Barnett & Bobby Barry)
at Gunfactory Studios, London.

Downbeat – Introspección

[DPH029]

Downbeat

“Introspección”

Downbeat is a project that mutates, changes with the time, transforms itself with life, without limits and without borders. Their second album takes the sound a step further towards experimentation. Downbeat look at their interior and connect themselves with genres they always got inspired from: Dub, Dubtronica, Jazz and Fusion.

“Introspección” is the beating of their heart, each heartbeat navigated by a different state of mind. Looking at oneself is like a magical journey within, guided by the mystical power of the ancestral plants.

The dub sounds are present throughout the album with atmospheric musical landscapes. This is not the typical dub album, trying to look like its coming out from an island … this is the dub of the mountain … the dub of the Andes … the dub of the Aconcagua … the dub of Las Heras. That’s why it’s hard, dark, cold and different. That is why it has power, hypnotism, strength and a sound of its own.

Let us navigate within ourselves, with the heart pulsating on each beat. Heavy Dub, experimental Dub, dedicated to the universe and its infinite power. A triangle for all to travel (SOUND-LIGHT-SHAPE)!

Daniele Ciullini – Forgotten Monuments

[SE078]

Daniele Ciullini

“Forgotten Monuments”

It is a real pleasure for us to present this new album by Daniele Ciullini. An intense three tracks album features ambient sounds and industrial atmospheres, endless sonic rugs hanging in the fog that envelops the forgotten monuments of the title.

“Cemetery of the rusty ships”: playing the gap between the spaces of abandoned industrial ruins imagining the noise they were now lost in the mists of a rusty future already past.

The cosmic odyssey of “Empty Factories” is a hymn to industrial decline to the emptiness from its center emerges around degrading and wrapping everything in an infinite melancholy fog.

Something is moving in the “Frozen Abandoned Buildings” where the ice becomes static straight beat, dense implacable as a tribal rite from an ancient future.
