“Skegness Lagoon Walk / Gibraltar Point – Improvisations”
Field recordings and improvisations recorded at Skegness on the East coast of England.
1. Skegness Lagoon Walk: Wind, Seascape and Improvisation
On August 2nd 2016, at around 6:10pm, while on holiday in Skegness, a live location performance soundwork was created at the Lagoon Walk location.
2. Gibraltar Point: Wind, Seascape and Improvisation
On August 4th 2016 a live location performance was created on the shoreline at Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve at about 9:30am featuring a short walk from the vegetated dune area by the beach to the tidal edge and back to the edge of the dunes.
3. Gibraltar Point Car Park Windscape (vignette)
Recorded in our car on the 4th August 2016 in the Gibraltar Point Visitor’s Car Park shortly before our return home to Nottingham. I discovered by accident that when the driver’s side car door was just ajar a strong wind noise was heard. It was ‘blowing a gale’ at the time. As I had my full binaural recording rig at hand it was too good an opportunity to miss!
Dallas Simpson is an environmental sound artist and has been recording and performing live on location since the mid 1990s. Recordings are exclusively in the binaural format for headphone listening recorded using in-ear custom modified DPA4060 microphones. He engages with locations observing soundscapes and performs live using found objects and surfaces.
«MESA» ultimate ceremony: started 2013, ended 2016. Black/white tapes &&& borders. Revelation (shamanic state). Patron saint of rain??? Various sacramental rain cults and rain gods. In addition, he is the keeper of the keys to heaven. A visionary diagram of where the shaman will need to journey. Done at night. Prayers, invocations, and chants-beat-shamanic rattle addressed to all the supernaturals. Tobacco, plants. At midnight, when the purifying ceremonial acts are complete, all present must drink one to three cups of the ceremonial potion.
Back in September we released an amazing EP by Ant The Symbol called You Are Here: Downtown (if you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure you do). Well, it turns out that that EP was the first in a series and today we’ve got the second installment, You Are Here: Midnight!
While listening, it becomes clear why these EPs are part of the same series. There’s a certain sonic character to them that reveals a music artist whose sound is maturing. There’s also a sense of a certain deterministic experimentation.
Whether you’ve heard Ant’s music before or not, be sure that you check it out now. What he’s creating these days is something really special.
Yo, Ant… you did it again… I think you’re channeling greater forces! Simply incredible.
Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!
Past Future is CerebralAudio’s second in a series of re-releases of Ambelion’s back catalog. Ambelion approached us about re-releasing these works in the hope that we would be able to gather more attention to his work, and improve on the packaging and mastering of his work: in essence bringing new life to his relatively unknown and neglected work.
Having being familiar with Waiting For Quarters, there was immediate interest in listening to the works that Ambelion had previously released. He sent us two releases: Quasi-Stationary and Past Future. It didn’t take much for us to agree that these works needed to be heard, and Ambelion needs to be appreciated by a more receptive audience.
So, Past Future is the second of these releases. In the future we are working on several more releases from his back catalog, including the potential release of some previously un-released tracks.
Pueblo Nuevo Netlabel is pleased to present “A fragile balance (Fourtounis)“, album from multicultural improvisation group Boss, Sambo, Chagas, Nobara & Silver T.
“‘Fourtounis’ is the name of the local seafood tavern (that serves more than just seafood) where I indulge in the habit of sitting and relaxing during the summer afternoons (as well as during other times of the day and other times of the year), after a refreshing swim in the sea.
‘Fourtounis’ is the name of the place where I sit enjoying the company of my wife Christina and my friends (more than friends actually, my brothers I should say), Christopher the Lawyer, Thomas, Giorgos and Kostas the Teacher. There we meet to drink ouzo and chat about everything imaginable.
That is the place where, one afternoon, quite possibly under the influence of the drink, I had an idea: listening to the sound of the sea and contemplating the rocky shore, I got out my drumsticks and my brushes and using those accessories as well as my bare hands, I improvised on the rocks, the sand, the pebbles and the water. It was an idea that at first seemed really simple but proved to be quite challenging, since, besides actually playing and improvising, I also had to negotiate the rocks on which I was forced to balance.
I really don’t know if I succeeded, but the most important thing is that through the music I managed to gather around me some special friends and wonderful musicians, whom I thank from the bottom of my heart for their invaluable help:
Matthias Boss – Violin.
Mauro Sambo – Alto sax.
Paulo Chagas – Oboe.
Rogelio Nobara – Acoustic guitar.
I would also like to thank the whole “Fourtounis” team, who allowed me to use the name of the establishment and who didn’t laugh at me too hard watching my struggles to balance and stand upright on the rocks: Sotiris, Dionysis, Babis, Grigoris, Joe the Terrible, Anastasis and Antonis for his magnificent photos.”
