Haase+Santis – Dos Trazos

[pn126]

Haase+Santis

“Dos Trazos”

The second album by the improvisatory duo Johannes Haase (Germany) and Óscar Santis (Chile), in this work we find two strokes, each one with a particular character and energy, music born from an ambient minimalism of high contrast based on the energy and sonority of each of them, together they create these sonorous images of highly oneiric and aquatic depth, that revoke the dunes, the sea, and the factories near Ritoque.

Trazo uno (Stroke one); of an aggressive character, contained and defragmented, the sonorities created by the electric violin of Haase are hidden between textures blurred by processes and loops, these at moments, contrasted by the electronics of Santis, overwhelming, from aleatoric rhythms and great sonic density, almost pixelated, together they create landscapes that are deconstructed and assembled in an organic way, creating textures of high spatiality.

Trazo dos (Stroke two); a deep and spacious texture, of aquatic time that is constructed of subtle gestures that coexist in a state of contemplation, the temporal absence that they generate immerses us in a very deep listening almost like daydreaming, a continuous variation that little by little comes and goes transforming and giving rise to this fragmented minimalism that brings us back to that which is human.

A disc where temporality and form are given through the organic needs of the moment, which takes us into subtle states of listening, where we can manage to enter the fine interwoven fabric and the decisions through which the music was tacken on, at the personal level, a work of brief landscaping with an occultist essence, two strokes that propose contrasting states from the same nature, listening and freedom.

Alejandro Albornoz & Mika Martini – Two Chilean Blokes in the Soundhouse

[pn124]

Alejandro Albornoz & Mika Martini

“Two Chilean Blokes in the Soundhouse”

‘Two Chilean Blokes in the Soundhouse’ is Alejandro Albornoz and Mika Martini getting dark and dirty with sound in Studio 2, University of Sheffield Sound StudiosMay 2016, Sheffield, UK. With analogue synthesizers, contact microphones and digital processes rendered live, rough sound objects are hewn from all manner of sources leading to short tracks that challenge and delight at the same time.

Alejandro and Mika go way back so their improvisations are extremely respectful. Track durations vary according to materials and techniques used. Sometimes the analogue electronics are dominant; sometimes recordings of live instruments such as pianos play a major role with electronic sounds clothing the real in soft noise and bristling modulations. There’s a real sense of ‘performance’ which is sometimes hard to hear in improvised electronic music. This sensibility jostles nicely with the ‘hands on’ approach to their kit and sounds, and makes me return to various tracks for ‘another listen’.

Concluding the improvised music are two ‘reconstructions’ – an out of real-time re-consideration of their recorded improvisations. Immediately one hears an alternate approach to time. Real Time is no longer important; the ‘moment’ doesn’t matter; sounds are ordered, re-ordered, edited, and ordered again. The final two tracks are like paintings: sounds once free to roam are rounded up, fed, watered, (caged maybe) but framed to form a journey that neatly concludes an exciting collaboration and an excellent disc.

“Wings of an Angel continues to boldly explore new sonic territory and with this latest release, he does that with one instrument, the piano. He has taken some of the world’s most famous classical pieces, turned them inside out, added his own signature improvisatory style and created breath-taking works of spiraling psychedelia/Avant-Garde complexity which will lead you into dreams and visions you never thought possible.
His playing is expressive, emotive and yet he brings the classics into a new dimensional space with precision all the while, creating a playful atmosphere on an album you don’t want to miss.”

Mr. & Oso – Se dice Misterioso [pn123]

[pn123]

Mr. & Oso

“Se dice Misterioso [pn123]”

“As every Tuesday night falls in the city of Viña del Mar; Moraga, Arellano and Castro meet to play and record what happens. Based on a spirit of camaraderie, they turn on their synthesizers, drum machines, effects and computers and once again begin their exercises in creating amusing and amiable improvisations. From these extensive sessions, recorded according to the dogma of the trio -directly to a stereo track-, they extract the passages that constitute each one of the six tracks that compose ‘Se dice Misterioso‘ (Its called mysterious).

Published by the indispensable Pueblo Nuevo, this is the third work of Mr. & Oso, an ensemble in electronic format that with its creative exercises transports us to the most inspiring grounds of Intelligent techno and the Ambient of the 90s, where electronica was – and here still is – a space of personal discovery, and at the same time a point of spiritual communion.

Either accompanying the beginning or end of the day; as much in solitude as among friends; wandering along the coast or without getting up from our chair, Se dice misterioso may be enjoyed equally, becoming an excellent soundtrack for a journey in which physical displacement is not necessary, since it is concentrated enough on the present to take us as far as we please.

With smiles of complicity and satisfaction, Mr. & Osos end the session tonight. It will not be until next week when they meet again and return to their instruments to exchange musings in a musical key.”

[pn121]

Luis Marte / Poltamento

“MOVIL/INMOVIL”

“MOVIL/INMOVIL (Mobile/Immobile) is a sonic exploration of two worlds as seemingly distinct as are mobile musical applications and a Steinway grand piano.

This work of Luis Marte and Roger Delahaye aka Poltamento concentrates on a single musical space-time and, in the form of a single perspective, two dimensions that are both physical and categorical, the mobility and portability of electronic and granular software on one side, and the immobility of the great acoustic giant on the other. Categories of space and size, which are also of texture and dissimilar sonic thickness, nevertheless fused and assumed as part of a whole by ambient moments that are also impressionistic …

These fragments, wherein the warmth of the wood and the glitch’s abstraction solidify into a single entity, show us that the possible “N” worlds can converge in a singular sound synthesis, where the extremes touch and coexist, where, as Einstein said a century ago, motion or status depends on the viewer’s point of view, in this case the listener.”

La Bella Violencia & Mika Martini. – La Mirada del Sonido

[pn120]

La Bella Violencia & Mika Martini.

“La Mirada del Sonido”

From the Great Beyond. Brief summary from the exploration log of “La Mirada del Sonido” (The view of sound).

“We might expect that in the convergence of the works of Mika Martini and Iñaki Muñoz, one would encounter realizations that contain the most essential of the experimental music and visuality from this territory. From the auditory, Martini integrates sound clusters inspired by the electroacoustic ancestors of this generation, and from the visual, the glazes in motion of La Bella Violencia evoke the chromatic layers of Roberto Matta, adding without doubt, the chaotic force of chance and error.

Martini and Muñoz have experimented with the transit between materializations analogous and numerical, tangible and intangible. The work is configured as a portal. In ‘La Mirada del Sonido’ images and sounds are integrated, relieving a friendly narrative tension, it could be the soundtrack of an initiatory trip towards the center of our brain, where the neuronal transmissions seem to be granted an aesthetic through this work, chemically activating the DMT that exists in our systems.

These materializations, which function as neuronal chemical releasers, deliver a sensorial experience that determines a respectful concentration, where music and images are integrated into an organic volume that is perhaps unrepeatable, inconsistent, based on the unique experience of turning seeing and hearing into a total virtuality.”

Eddie 135 & The Shitblaster – The Dragon’s Teeth

[D!HR-33]

Eddie 135 & The Shitblaster

“The Dragon’s Teeth”

For its 33rd release, Da ! Heard It Records dives into the origins of Creation.

Recorded in five days in London, at James Ogilvie’s studio in 2010, Dragon’s Teeth is the confrontation of eddie 135’s experimental tweaks and Shitblaster’s science of mix. Saturated like the oil from the fish and chips that three musicians greedily gulp up between two work sessions, the series of improvisations produced by Adrien, Matthieu, and James one evening, serves as the sizzling play-do used to conceive this future disc. From this initial magma that blends rhythm boxes, Juno synthesizer, and a deluge of pyrotechnical effects, accidental beaches form and reveal little by little large blankets that wrap the listener into an actual flow of lava. Petrified, the listener thus takes all the time needed to let oneself become invaded by the ensemble’s numerous textures…

Taking everything with them on their way, the four gobbling geezers deployed here evolve in jolts to bring back from the depths this mysterious dragon’s tooth. Instinctive, brutal, yet mastered, this album’s boiling energy proves once more that the first idea is often the right one.

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.

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.”
