0017 survey / 29th February 2012

In garnering this, we eagerly swooned, enamoured ... such beauty, and by friends to boot. Elsewhere, by some digress, the unnumbered things of faux-authority and [sic]-desire, hidden by assertion itself, are struck upon historicism's bloodless screen. We fart towards them - incendiary. Their Is is all Pan, Pantheon, Pangea etc.; its haunted processions are timorous and aggressive in equal measure - a fraught hinterland of Unverständlichkeit, in a sea of ... you know ... Nid-nod Adorno & c., or Id Vicious, or a Quartertonal Prog Elvis, jape-clogging for Eno-Obscene-O. Nowhere do we, no friends of the island, see machines failing such general congress. Instead, we knock on its walls, wailing ... one, two... 13 o clock, rock ... 92 men-, women- and children-strong

0017 survey is dedicated to the memory of our friend Richard Lainhart, who died on 30th December 2011

213TV: centre of the universe / december 2009 / 213TV - Ivor Kallin & John Bisset / featuring: Adam Bohman. Ivor and John have been trapped in a hole in the wall which they entered through a worm hole in their kitchen. They've been there many years and are getting on each other's nerves - especially when Ivor ramps up his viola. John discovers he is omnipotent and puts his powers to good use in order to get some sleep. What a nightmare! The film is an episode from Season 2 - you can view the whole sorry story on the 2-13.co.uk website. 213TV have produced 100 films in the past three years - hilarious and disturbing in equal measure. 'What struck me in their work is how, in both form and content and by means of glossolalia, mock violence, postures and gestures, the pair manage to hover around the cusp that separates seriousness from humour, most evident in http://www.2-13.co.uk/Smoo.html Sometimes I’m not sure how to react, a feeling I experienced in French theatre after seeing a lot of plays by Ionesco, Beckett and Genet.'

A Quiet Monday: Jean Montag: Synths & field recordings / jeanmontag.wordpress.com

Adam Bohman and Adrian Northover: Copper FRH_AGS -  Le Carre OKOT_FFM / Composed by Adam Bohman. Performed by Adam Bohman (voice, strings and found objects) and Adrian Northover (voice and soprano saxophone). Recorded Oxo Studios, 09/02/12. Engineered and mastered by A. Northover. For more info see link below http://www.adriannorthover.co.uk/Bohman-Northover3.html / Adam Bohman: '...There are four sources of text in the composition:- 1.) An Alpine Garden Society magazine from the 1980's containing a lot of strange latin names! 2.) A technical book from the 1960's called 'Copper for Radiant Heating'. 3.) Selections from 'Our Kind of Traitor' by John Le Carre. (as a promotion samples of this book were handed out at Waterloo Station). The sample contained about 100 pages from the completed novel. 4.) A small amount of material from fast food menus. Selections of words for the piece were quite limited. In some sections only words beginning with letters that form our two names were used. In others words beginning with letters not included in our names. In addition words of shared letters between names were employed...'. / Adrian Northover: '...Concepts ‘A Chance Encounter’ (by Adrian Northover): I like to think that the music that is produced by Adam and myself takes place in a neutral zone, a space in which certain musical assumptions I normally have (of rhythm and pitch) can be warped and distorted to create a new kind of beauty, a kind of music that has a surrealist element, but that also references a low tech Sci-fi future. The basis of our dialogue is improvisation, we have this in common and we work from there. This duo has its own challenges, for me it is to create variety - in order to do this I attempt to work at a more microscopic level than normal, that is I try to listen to the subtle variations present in the sounds that Adam makes. On a personal level we have a lot in common, we are of a similar age and come from the same part of England, and we share a lot of cultural likes and dislikes. I think this also affects certain choices that we make...'

Aditi Tahiti: This was an early attempt at subtractive synthesis; a sort of a prep for fm synthesis.  The additional layer is one of unprocessed vocals.  I am currently still working on extended vocal techniques, as well as working on additional instrumentation and composition.  http://adititahiti.bandcamp.com/ for a sample of prior releases

Anthony Donovan and John Hyatt: Words by John Hyatt / Music by Anthony Donovan and John Hyatt / Art Speaks 1 (Hole in the Air) He dreams, for sure! The dreamer is in the pit; the place of the dreaming; the necessary space between the viewer and the viewed. He dwells where light lights the light of light to run in the steps of light indivisibly and to complex common sense; where the message is received before it is sent; where we doze between the question and the answer. Be you satisfied with your plot, Dreamer. Is it not a marvelous gutter; the place of music's black tadpoles swimming; the tear in the audience's eye; the realm of mediation; the hole in the air; the hole in time; the suspension of disbelief; in the gap between art and life?

Bolide: Bolide is an electro-acoustic improvising sextet, formed in Brighton, UK, in 2007. Originally coming together for a one-off performance at the Colour Out of Space festival that year, the group has so far failed to disband

Bryan Lewis Saunders: Going from place to place Infected with all these snakes Picking out and separating the poison ones from the nonpoisonous ones And putting them in separate containers on display And sometimes they would really come at you And then sometimes you'ld get rid of like A hundred two hundred snakes and then all of a sudden out of nowhere There'ld be a tiger clawing at your face Going around from place to place Killing people And smelling like Embalming fluid Not understanding how The smell gets on me Long before its time Premonitory Imaginary Foreseeable Still it's pretty A pretty heavy odor And everyone around me notices it And I can't shake it And it just makes me get madder and madder And kill more people

Working in the fields of electro-acoustic improvisation, ambient, music concrete and many things between, Clutter has toured extensively and released music with Sonic Oyster Records, Apollolaan, Earth Monkey Productions, Electronic Musik, Clinical Archives and many others. ‘A kind of dark, swirling chamber kosmiche/ambient tangent, Clutter has created something organic & cerebral from contributed noises & sounds which he has re-arranged & processed to create something quite wonderful. I don’t particularly want to rattle on too much about this as the music is of a rich, fascinating quality’ Norman Records / http://shaunblezard.net / http://clutter.bandcamp.com/

Coffin Boffin: Meditation facilitated and aided by a drone of high stimulus signs, colours, vague and sharp/clean and distorted sounds and repetition. Focus on that result lads, let your body do the talking while your mind does the walking! A strange dialect of business management psycho babble and an evolved shop floor patois! 'I don't turn with my forks in the air, i always wrap after two layers layers and i aim for the upper quartile of my self actualization'. It's all grist; i had a curry with too much cannon fodder in, i thought it would be too hot but it was a chilly little number! Special Mention to Mr Joe Oxley for his experimental synth cv gate sequencing, playing and inspiring company :)

Damien Olsen and Michael Durek: This collaboration began with some highly compressed piano chords. Michael Durek played the chords with the damper pedal down and let them fade. Then digitally, using a multi band compressor, the tails on the piano chords were extended much longer. The attacks from the notes were removed to create a supernatural sounding piano.  Damien Olsen created a track using an old field recording from the sounds of the BQE at late night. He also isolated a depressed piano pedal sound found on Durek's track and placed a series of clones of that sound along the whole piece as a "bomb" percussion effect; then reversed Durek' s piano chords track and added some jazz guitar melodic lines in a new track

Daniel Heikalo: Daniel Heikalo is a multi-faceted composer and instrumentalist living in Nova Scotia. Born in a french-speaking working class neighbourhood of Montreal, he grew up surrounded by fascinating architecture, colourful people, noise, pollution, poverty, and the kind of sensibility to deeply absorb the richness of his surroundings. He developed an appreciation for light and visual composition, architecture, that translated in his early involvement with drawing and photography, which he still practices professionally. He also discovered early on that his ear was musical, being able to memorize complex instrumental pieces which he would sing to himself on his way to school, or to alleviate the boredom instilled by that institution, not recommended for creative people. After realizing that he could sing in his mind complete lead guitar solos by the likes of Clapton, Zappa and Page, he thought that learning guitar might be a good thing. He was right and never looked back. Heikalo now plays all kinds of guitars, banjo, cittern, mandolin, drums, percussion, recorders and invented instruments. He has 25 CDs available from his website http://volantemultimedia.com/, which range from classically-influenced folk and world music to electroacoustic sonic mayhem and free improvisation. He does all his recording, mixing and mastering in his home studio and records other musicians, theatre and video soundtracks. / http://www.volantemultimedia.com / http://www.youtube.com/user/heikalo / http://vimeo.com/user1680353/videos / http://soundcloud.com/heikalo / http://www.myspace.com/danielheikalo / http://www.reverbnation.com/#/danielheikalo

Dental Dames: Founded in 2011, Dental Dames is a collaborative project between Lora Bloom (additional vocals, guitar) and Bonnie MacAllister (writer, vocals, keyboard, electro). The fiber art video features crochet by Rachel Udell and Krochet Kitty. Performance by Lora Bloom, Bonnie MacAllister, and Rachel Udell. The song, "Girl Gangs", appears on Riot Grrrl Berlin's compilation 'Riot Grrrl Is Not Dead' (2012). http://dentaldames.tumblr.com http://www.dentaldames.tumblr.com / Girl Gangs: I heard it in your beehive I saw it in your dos Tell me that your don’ts hurt When I am nearly nude. You are on the dark side. I’m over the moon. You could tell me nothing It would be too soon. Let’s all form a girl gang, Stitch up at high noon, Crochet letter sweaters, Knit bomb our own doom. Would you have told me I have lipstick in my teeth Toilet trails on shoelace Promises to keep. I wouldn’t tell you He called me last night I’m about to tell you It is time to fight. Let’s all form a girl gang, Stitch up at high noon, Crochet letter sweaters, Knit bomb our own doom. It was much easier to date you Than to be your friend We could always break up Then balance out our ends. I wish I had told you I’d seen his bedroom walls I saw you blow up my phone When I was in the thralls. Let’s all form a girl gang, Stitch up at high noon, Crochet letter sweaters, Knit bomb our own doom. Now I can’t but hit ignore With him between my legs And your name is frozen Like cryogenic eggs. I can’t believe you Would start this war with me After all those pinky swears, Late nights of pie and tea. Let’s all form a girl gang, Stitch up at high noon, Crochet letter sweaters, Knit bomb our own doom

Dylan Nyoukis: Dylan Nyoukis's work exists on the fringe of contemporary avant garde art and underground DIY insurrection. As a leading light in the UK's tape/CD-R scene, Nyoukis has long functioned as a rallying point for artists working to clear a space for original, non-idiomatic sound and feral performance modes. Alongside his sister and long-term collaborator Lisa (Dora Doll), he founded the Chocolate Monk label in 1993, an early experimental music imprint that combined hi-jacks of outmoded media - cassette, CD-R, pen and paper - with cutting edge investigations of the limits of form, while functioning as a home for Nyoukis's own projects, Prick Decay, Decaer Pinga, Ceylon Mange, Blood Stereo and countless one-off collaborations. Prick Decay's 2001 album, Guidelines For Basement Non-Fidel, has long been regarded as one of the founding documents of the new weird century, alongside Harry Pussy's "Smash The Mirror" and Sun City Girls Torch Of The Mystics. Nyoukis's early material paralleled international developments in post-noise syntax but his approach has become increasingly sophisticated while still retaining a refusenik energy, interrogating sound-poetry and musique concrete strategies while always working outside of their inherited strictures. His current group, Blood Stereo, is a duo with his wife, the musician and artist Karen Constance, that explores hand-cranked 20th century technology in combination with epiglottal gymnastics and free music modes inherited as much from punk rock's mutilated aesthetic as utopian art styles. His solo vocal and tape work continues to push the envelope in terms of the expressive options offered by amplified physicality while his rejection of any kind of theoretical backdrop liberates him from servitude to any specific agenda. He remains a singular voice. Over the years he has collaborated with artists as diverse as Ludo Mich, Chris Corsano, Thurston Moore, Sun City Girls, Bill Nace, Heather Leigh Murray, Phil Minton, Neil Campbell, Usurper and Wolf Eyes. He lives in Brighton, England (David Keenan, Glasgow, June 2009)

Elizabeth Veldon: I am a Noise Artist using mainly samples, sine waves and feedback to explore political and cultural themes

Ergo Phizmiz: "A burst of colour, noise and imagination ... I would be slightly concerned if you had witnessed anything like it before" - Tom Ravenscroft, The New Statesman / "Maverick composer" - The Wire / "A truly English original who we should cherish deeply" - Sound Projector / "Sounds like Vivian Stanshall, Syd Barratt and  Dali making merry" - Mojo Magazine / "The musical man of the moment" - The Times / "Eccentric, boundary testing, ridiculously different…In some ways you could say that Ergo Phizmiz is the complete artist…” - The Kaje / "Bloody marvellous" - Clash Magazine / "Goes to show how major record companies have lost touch completely" - Pennyblack Music / “We can't decide whether he's the new Viv Stanshall, a young Eno, a British Zappa, or a replacement for Frank Sidebottom" - The Guardian / "An ear practised in making the magical brush shoulders with the mundane" - Drowned In Sound / "One man movement" - The Wire / "The Emperor of Music!" - Tom Ravenscroft / "One of the most inventive composers around...a musical equivalent to Chris Morris" - BBC Radio 3, Mixing It / Over the past twelve years Ergo Phizmiz has become one of the most defiantly single-minded and uncategorisable artists in the world. Across pop music, opera, radio-art, puppet theatre, film scores, cover versions, sound-collage, installations, sound-poetry and electronic music, he has built a body of work that exceeds 300 hours. Radio: Ergo Phizmiz has produced radio for BBC Radio 3, BBC 6 Music, WFMU, Soundart Radio, Resonance FM, WDR3, DRadio Kultur, Silenceradio, and other stations internationally. This output has spanned radioplays, documentary, large-scale sound-collages, and live improvised radio. He received the Special Mention in the composed radio category at the 2010 Prix Italia for his "Paul Klee, a Balloon, the Moon, Music & Me" for BBC Radio 3. Opera: After teenage years spent writing operas (as detailed in the 2011 WDR3 programme "Disappearing Boxes"), Ergo returned at the age of 30 to this form with the alternately shocking and hysterical "The Mourning Show", in which radio DJ Chris Evans is driven to insanity and plummets to his death in the misguided belief he is a bird. This was followed by the one-man semi-opera "Fulcanelli's Shoes", a performance-lecture-of-lies. Most recently he has produced a radical adaptation of Flann O'Brien's absurdist novel "The Third Policeman", in which electronic music, puppetry, stagecraft, and animation collide into an intense unity. He has recently been nominated for the Arts Foundation Opera Composition Fellowship. Netaudio: A prolific exponent of free, Creative Commons netaudio, he has worked with the netlabels Headphonica, UpItUp, and Bad Panda Records on a wide range of projects, notably "The Faust Cycle", a 15 hour audio adventure produced over four years in collaboration with sound-artists from across the globe. Other netaudio works have included "M: 1000 Year Mix", and a series of acoustic & toy instrument cover-versions of pop music history, from the Velvet Underground, to Aphex Twin, Beyonce, The Prodigy, and 1990s club classics. His own netlabel, Chinstrap, releases music by collaborators, friends and fellow adventurers, as well as found audio, forgotten 78 RPM obscurities, and cuttings from public-domain film soundtracks. Pop music: A lover of pop music from the 1920s onwards, Ergo Phizmiz is a songwriter of polished nuggets of pop gold. Often misunderstood as a writer of "comey songs", because the subject matter of his songwriting isn't limited to talking about fucking or trying to fuck (rather, in the tradition of the best calypso, a song can be about anything whatsoever), his work in pop has just began to be appreciated, via the 2010 release of "Things to Do and Make" on Care in the Community Recordings, to be followed soon by "Look, Do and Listen" on the same label which refines vastly his songwriting craft. Visual Art: Ergo has also produced a wide range of visual art, in films, installations and collage. He produced "Forest" for the Venn Festival, "The Invention of Birds" for Soundart Radio, an avant-garde children's television pilot programme, a wide range of puppet and stop-motion films, and most recently the exhibition "Staticopera" for Tete-a-Tete: The Opera Festival 2011. Ergo Phizmiz's work has been presented in performance, exhibition and broadcast throughout the UK, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Japan, and the USA. He lives in Bridport, UK, operating from his own giant-shelf studio called Grindia or Grin Dear

FluID: Chris Gilmore, known by his stage name, ‘FluID’, is a Chicago, IL. based experimental and electronic hip-hop musician. His first album 'Warhol' was released was in 1988 and since that time he has released over a dozen albums. His 2011 release, 'Envisioning Abstraction: the Duality of FluiD' (ALRN008), received international critical acclaim. / http://simultaniety.blogspot.com

Gino Robair: “Bummer and Lazarus” From I, Norton By Gino Robair / This piece is in honor of a well-known pair of stray dogs that roamed the streets of late 19th century San Francisco. It’s often claimed that the duo were the occasional companions of Norton I, Emperor of the United States. Consequently, this work features Emperor Norton’s proclamations, read by Tom Duff, along with recordings of various performances of my opera I, Norton. I tried to imagine what the dogs heard during those tumultuous years following the Gold Rush. To re-create this in a metaphorical sense, I processed and spatialized the source material using a Buchla 200e modular synthesizer. (The main elements of the patch were a pair of 296e Spectral Processors, a 292e Quad Dynamics Manager, and the voltage controllable panning capabilities of the 227e System Interface.) Originally conceived for 16-channel playback, this realization is in stereo

Graham Dunning: Graham Dunning's track "Stutter" is a recording of the artist using his interactive installation of the same name, recorded at the work's first showing at Kraak Gallery, Manchester, in late 2009. The installation was later shown at AC Institute in New York in September 2011; the accompanying photo shows the installation in that gallery. To use the installation, visitors are invited to read into a microphone from a children’s book while wearing headphones. The sound from the microphone is delayed and fed back to the reader, mixed with masking white noise. This causes them to stutter and slur their speech

Gurdonark: The everyday gives rise to overlooked joys and unheralded pleasures. A turtle on a log basks in the sun. A play of color on a reptilian neck. The splashing sound of sliding into the water. Life is full of casual retreats and profound basking

Ian Linter: Ian Linter - Nitumas morn / "Om suicida na noite, expurga in At da penúria, e no medo encontra a contra-Luz factor na miríade. Astr est numia off-kas e Namor foi grande. Na Om suicida noite." http://astrangerparadise.com/ianlinter

Jaap Blonk: Jaap Blonk (born 1953 in Woerden, Holland) is a self-taught composer, performer and poet. He went to university for mathematics and musicology but did not finish those studies. In the late 1970s he took up saxophone and started to compose music. A few years later he discovered his potential as a vocal performer, at first in reciting poetry and later on in improvisations and his own compositions. For almost two decades the voice was his main means for the discovery and development of new sounds. From around the year 2000 on Blonk started work with electronics, at first using samples of his own voice, then extending the field to include pure sound synthesis as well. He took a year off of performing in 2006. As a result, his renewed interest in mathematics made him start a research of the possibilities of algorithmic composition for the creation of music, visual animation and poetry. As a vocalist, Jaap Blonk is unique for his powerful stage presence and almost childlike freedom in improvisation, combined with a keen grasp of structure. He performed in many European countries, as well as in the U.S. and Canada, Indonesia, Japan, South Africa and Latin America. With the use of live electronics the scope and range of his concerts has acquired a considerable extension. Besides working as a soloist, he collaborated with many musicians and ensembles in the field of contemporary and improvised music, like Maja Ratkje, Mats Gustafsson, Nicolas Collins, Joan La Barbara, The Ex, the Netherlands Wind Ensemble and the Ebony Band. He premiered several compositions by the German composer Carola Bauckholt, including a piece for voice and orchestra. A solo voice piece was commissioned by the Donaueschinger Musiktage 2002. On several occasions he collaborated with visual computer artist Golan Levin. Blonk's work for radio and television includes several commissioned radio plays. He also makes larger-scale drawings of his scores, which are being exhibited. He was the founder and leader of the long-standing bands Splinks (modern jazz, 1983-1999) and BRAAXTAAL (avant-rock, 1987-2005). He also has his own record label, Kontrans, featuring a total of 15 releases so far. Other Blonk recordings appeared on Staalplaat, Basta and VICTO

Jack Twang: Inspired by borborygmus, still searching for the righteous aspect. Bordering on the ugly, while thankfully avoiding the gruesome. Settling for the contiguous. After all, and as usual finding the unnerving beauty of the dire. I still don't know why I indulge myself, but I'm glad I am... for goodness sake. Yes!

Jamison Williams: Engagingly warm, challenging and gripping with insight, this newest release from Vantage Bulletin's 'La Maternelle' series, invites with heightened tension, and dedicated to the pouring of our gentle baptismal beginnings; these subtle and intimate pieces reward with a patient necessity, and a learned desire that allows those beginnings to blossom without tainted exploitation.

John 3.16: John 3:16 is a unique experiment relying on the broad culture of its solo composer. Heavy and aerial, the music is leading here. No rules to follow as no genre wide enough to encompass all the elements in John 3:16. In between soundtrack, ambient electronic and drone, each track is a piece of space somewhere, far away from here. / http://john316john.blogspot.com

Kipple: Kipple - Orpheus with Clay Feet (6:30) / Recorded live at Ship & Mitre in Liverpool – January 2012 / Kipple combines the momentum of ESP era free jazz with a 2 man low fi electronics section in place of the piano. The rhythm section is that used by Sonny Simmons on his UK gigs. The free blowing trumpet/soprano sax front line manages to be intense and relaxed at the same time. Personnel: Derek Saw – trumpet, flugelhorn, Herve Perez – soprano sax, Shaun Blezard – electronics, Ian Simpson – electronics, John Jasnoch – guitar, Charlie Collins – drums / Kipple is a word coined by the remarkable science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. It refers to the sinister type of rubbish which simply builds up without any human intervention. Eventually, one day, the entire world will have moved to a state of kipplization

This piece is a byproduct of a series of recordings that result in the project LUNALIA - an experiment in extra-sensory perception, improvisation, and divination -- resulting in a daily oracle aligned with a full moon cycle. With Angela Rawlings in Reykjavík and Maja Jantar in Ghent, each recording what the moon tells her and then the two independent, improvised tracks are synced. http://soundcloud.com/lunalia Lunabis is made up out of 3 recordings that were recorded together with the Lunalia pieces but that called for their own space

Miquel Parera: Work info: Title: nxH7Classwar / Author: Miquel Parera Jaques. Duration: 04:22 / Tags: Drone, Experimental, Minimal / Date: 2011 December 14 / Tech: Livecoding Improvisation. Equipment: Computer with Supercollider Language. Author Info: Miquel Parera Jaques (b.1978). He lives in Barcelona. He has studied psychology. After a time in free improvisation, a producer job gives you an idea: The sound can be free. Sound can be detached from the rhythm and harmony without being only noise. The will and freedom are the key to beauty. http://musicnumbers.wordpress.com/

Murmurists: Today, I face two ways: both towards the dark mass itself and into the light of some prestigious and inclusive festival of humanitarian categorisation. I aim to remain after all this communication. I am some edition; a host; a screen. No figment escapes me. See how, when I raise my thumb, you disappear

Paddy Steer and Alabaster De Plume: Bad Burger / Well, you did ask. And I won't feign modesty. You just try feeding me that bad burger, you'll be answered by a sax-moustache on a lounge-monster's gargle-dream sneer-grin. Who's laughing? You find this funny, do you? Well I do. Horribly. Paddy Steer made a delicious piece of chin-dancing groove out of goblin-toes and snare-blisters, and Alabaster spat on it. Now eat your heart, and be proud about it too

Painburn: In the middle ages the human imagination was dominated by Demons, Madonnas. Today is dominated by technology. The pictures are changed, but the meaning of slavery is remained unchanged. Post atomic images are new fears, new diseases of the soul, New anxieties. Post atomic image is the modern nightmare

PAS: The ever pulsating response of mind frequencies channel the spiritual energy through numerous fields of repulsion. Meditation on atoms can make them emanate forms from other dimensions according to spatial ratios of time

Paulo Chagas: Composer, music teacher and multi-instrumentist. He has dedicated his intervention to several strands of contemporary music, electro-acoustic, ambient, free improvisation, jazz and chamber music. He still works on music production, promotion of concerts and festivals of improvised music and also writing about music in magazines and blogs

Pete Karkut: THE TOWERING BLOCKS The towering blocks are not there, When I turn my back you're not there, I've never seen you before you're not there. So easy to hide, by the block In 1972.
No lens to see on the walkway In the shivering blocks Thin blanket blocks Robbing future blocks. The miners' strike is on the wooden T.V. 4 by 3 You never saw me. The towering blocks your face Under the shadow of cake That's your block You're not there. A towering block transmitting grey, Open to the winds of dish. The crippling dish, Famous as a dish. Polaris and Cod Wars Make me 19, a shopping machine N n nineteen, a stabbing machine I'm having a tattoo, I'm having a baby tattoo. Just one more, Up in the air baby To eat your cake and sleep, In towering blocks

Planetaldol: "Les machines et ce qu'il en est advenu. [notes d'intention, circonvolutions et craquements] Planetaldol has become an expert in scary organic worlds, between the breaking sounds of a sinking woody boat, and the wind around. Approching werewolves, mythic creatures coming near, Planetaldol is sculpting his subject, always in a realistic way. Planetaldol se plaît à explorer des mondes organiques, composés de souffles et de craquements de mâts, des mondes agonisants disséqués de ses mains expertes. Montages, mixages, spatialisation de l'étude, au plus près comme au plus loin, mais toujours au plus réaliste." JM Charcot http://planetaldol.free.fr planetaldol@yahoo.fr

Sonia Paço-Rocchia: Sonia Paço-Rocchia is a young artist who took a degree in instrumental and Electro-Acoustic Composition from the Université de Montréal after a double collegial diploma in natural sciences and music. She studied composition with Michel Tétreault, José Evangelista, Michel Smith, Michel Longtin and Jean Piché. Her work has been presented in Québec, Alberta, England, Scotland, Ireland, Belgium, France, Serbia and Germany. She enjoys composing for non-conventional instruments (CAM, for seven bus-card players, 2001;  Sans escalier, for solo slinky, 2004;  Pedalling Under London's Clouds, bicycle solo and projection, 2008), and she readily incorporates improvisation and theatrical action into her pieces (Improvisation sur les cinq sens, for piano, soprano, cello, percussions, tape and real-time processing, highland pipes and toy motor-car, 2004; Eau, for soprano under the shower and processed water, 2005). As she is interested in emerging technologies, she does not hesitate, when artistically necessary, to incorporate live electronics into her works (Soupirs, for clarinet and accompanying electroacoustics, 2005; Il temps-te, variations and improvisations for cornet, trumpet, trumpet piccolo, flugelhorn, sounds which move in space and stage actions, 2006). She has participated in workshops on sensors, Max/MSP and FTM, at iRCAM in Paris, and more recently in an interface workshop by Numediart, in Belgium. Sonia Paço-Rocchia is very interested audience participation (À chacun sa balloune, for dozens of balloons played by members of the audience, 2004), cross-over art, and in the sound installation medium (Installation sur le Slinky, up to 40 different instruments made with slinkies, 2004; S'enfeuiller, l'installation, live art, lighting and interaction with the public, 2006). She performs/improvises using a myriad of readily available sound-makers, invented instruments, voice and/or bassoon, along with real-time processing through gesture-based interfaces which enable her to perform using her body movements freely (Commentary, an half improvised solo performance for bassoon, live electronics and theatrical live art, 2009). She plays solo and in different ensembles, including CoMa, known of its unique concept of writing scores for musicians of all levels without compromising the music and the London Improvisers Orchestra a large conducted and free improvisations professional ensemble. Sonia Paço-Rocchia has worked in various collaborations with contemporary dance (Sticky Pathways a site specific choreography for 6 dancers and a musician performer choreographed by Lucy Ridley, 2009), live art and experimental physical theatre. She recently received a commission from Pascale Malaterre for the music and performance of DDD.3 a multimedia street theatre performance that have been premièred in Paris. For these collaborations, improvisation and interaction, by both media, is the root of the projects. As well as producing the music she has been an integral part of the performances themselves

Sonic Surgeon: Sonic Surgeon” came into being in London in 2008, but carries musical traces of an earlier musical life in the last century…In the meantime, the surgeon of sound had found new life under the name Atlan as a communications consultant in the late 1980s, as a sometimes-lumberjack, and above all, as a painter since 1990. A historic figure in artists’ squats, Atlan was at Pôle Pi (1997), Alter Nation, and the Croustie’s “gallery” on Avenue Montaigne, among others. Traces of his passage can be seen on a variety of industrial wasteland walls, in Lisbon, in Kassel for Documenta X, and in Esch/Alzette (Luxembourg). On canvas, he has exhibited at the Galerie Horizon in Paris, the Electron Libre, the Espace Beaurepaire in early 2010, and finally, the Miroiterie squat, where he is currently working, and will continue to do so until expulsion… A documentary was made on his work by Lily Tournay (“Atlan, Paintings or Mirrors?”, 2009), but the streets of Paris know him first and foremost as a mystifying character, the Sheep of Belleville, a little urban legend that made the waves of Arte Radio (2010): http://www.arteradio.com/son.html?615809. Sonic Surgeon’s tunes were heard in England and Scotland in the summer of 2009, and he regularly plays in France, both alone and in noise-oriented groups like LETOH, Rumble Crumble, and Iniram Oniram (available on myspace)

Stalaktos: Drips from the rock above, ongoing transformation, the beggining of the cave it's in front

Stormhat: I work with space, texture and movement. I'm interested in the ability of sound to transport me e.g. the listener to mental regions where the admittance can be a little tricky and where you don't often go in an everyday full of chores and mundane pleasures. In those states of mind, aware and at the same time in a lull, I sometimes experience  a very rich and needed mental and physical response. Maybe other listeners can have the same or different, but still attractive, experiments from the sounds...

Subversive Intentions: I have chose to join the Occupy movement because I believe that finally people have realized what the really problem is. Its not government, though they are big part of it. Its the wealthy. Its the corporations and their quest for further profit. Its their CEO's and their rabid pursuit of  bonuses. Its the share holders and centrals banks and their drive for world domination.  We can no longer afford to brush off notions like these as theories for conspiratorial nut cases. This isn't about Illuminati, shadow governments, or any secret organizations. Its no secret. With the 2010 Citizen's United vs.  FEC ruling, corporations have unbridled control of elections, being unlimited in the amount of money they can spend in support of particular candidate. It has been estimated that 4 Billion dollars will spent this year in the campaign for Presidential elections. It can no longer be argued that politicians aren't bought. This system is a scam and needs to be destroyed. I stand with Occupy movement in the hopes that from it will arise a true revolution, where the world unites to take down the rich bastards who are destroying this planet

Wilhelm Matthies: The instrument used for Crumbling Walls; Madison Union Cutting ((Matthies, kokeka (2-25-11)) was the kokeka, an instrument that Wilhelm Matthies invented and built. Crumbling Walls; Madison Union Cutting ((Matthies, kokeka (2-25-11)) was made in protest to political changes happening in Wisconsin, the state that I live in. Scott Walker was elected governor and almost immediately canceled unionizing rights for public workers. Wisconsin is the state where child labor laws, the 5 day week, the right to unionize was given the first footholds in the US. A recall effort is happening, over 1 million signatures were turned in! The governor looks like he may be replaced!The irony is that the unions had a very productive working relationship with the state for many years, and would have been willing to make the concessions.Net label releases “RiverFoot-RealityRubs” December 2011 http://www.fieldnoiserecords.com/NEWS/?date=20111201 / “RiverFoot-RealityRubs” December 2011.  http://wilhelmmatthies.bandcamp.com/album/riverfoot-realityrubs / “Summer Bells Yakin” December 2011 http://bruits-netlabel.blogspot.com/p/releases.htm / “Crumbling Walls for MLK, JR” January 2012 http://www.archive.org/download/b037s_CWfMLK_Wilhelm_Matthies/ / “FreeGagaku-leaves sway, birds fly” January 2012 http://wilhelmmatthies.bandcamp.com/album/freegagaku-leaves-sway-birds-fly / Reviews: http://londonresonance.blogspot.com/2011/12/best-of-2011-london-resonance.html / http://www.mescalina.it/musica/special/06/02/2012/editoriale2011 / Wilhelm Matthies: http://soundcloud.com/wilhelm-matthies / http://www.facebook.com/wilhelm.matthies

Zilmrah: Artist: ZILMRAH / Track Title: Septenary / Musicians: Michael Durek- Theremin, Effects / Lawry Romani- 18 String Guitarwheel, Effects / David Tamura- Tenor Saxophone, Effects / Recorded at BC Studios by Martin Bisi / Mixed & Produced at Apparition Sound by Lawry Romani. An experiment based on the number seven where each audio track was assigned different parameters on separate plains rooted in a paradigm of Septenary. For example, as the Saxophone, Guitarwheel drones and Theremin tracks were duplicated seven times each in unison and brought to volumes of seven, some of those tracks were panned seven degrees in one direction while others were assigned seven effects to which all principals of Septenary were applied in each where at all possible. “He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.” ~ Nietzche

Zreen Toyz: My most personal sound-colour always features strongly in any of my predominant compositions, especially Glauconitic Conceptual Absurdities. Except in rare cases (for example, when you are mixing a particularly Expressionist set of modules), contemporary composers of "modulation-music" should avoid the use of contrapuntal overlayered colours. My work aims to transcribe Schoenbergianistically-super-post-Webern clusters with post-serially-dynamic semitones whilst developing certain oppositions or atonal silences. It must be remembered that superimposing rhythms, especially if they are Expressionist (or even post-diverse), should be avoided. It is plainly obvious that the act of recreating technological elements causes one to become heterophonic (and sometimes even Stockhausenesque), which is why I deny this approach, preferring instead to simply perceive radically.
