Nicolas Tourney is a french experimental musician and sound designer, also owner of the label Snow in Water Records. His new album Gloucester consists in 23 experimental compostions based on a precise methodology, gear and sound material.
As the artist says himself “For Gloucester, the device used brings together a 1/8 violin, a viola, a pure data processor and a ring modulator.
It is a work of sound evocations around Charles Olson’s Maximus Poems. I use a projectivist method, freely inspired by the theoretical work of the American poet. In the field of possibilities thus opened, this research allows spatialization in a neutral listening space.
This work was developed during a stay at the Performing Arts Forum, a kind of European Black Mountain College.”
