0021 survey / 28th February 2013

122 contributing acts, with 109 pieces of music / soundart and 23 short-films 

 02_Elements: In spring 2012, I began inviting players whose work I like to contribute improvised parts towards a long-term project with the working-title of 'Elements'. The intention was that each player contributes in isolation, without any knowledge about the other players taking part. After gathering a workable pool of these parts, I then began composing with these elements - processing, editing and such like - along with adding my own work. This is the eleventh of these pieces, comprised of myself and one other player: 02_Elements. Improvisers: Pixyblink: voice / Anthony Donovan: words. This piece is somewhat different from previous pieces in the series in simply presenting Pixyblink's, I think, remarkable performance of my prose. (Anthony Donovan, February 2013)

04_Elements: In spring 2012, I began inviting players whose work I like to contribute improvised parts towards a long-term project with the working-title of 'Elements'. The intention was that each player contributes in isolation, without any knowledge about the other players taking part. After gathering a workable pool of these parts, I then began composing with these elements - processing, editing and such like - along with adding my own work. This is the twelfth of these pieces, comprised of myself and three other players: 04_Elements. Improvisers: Mathias Boss: violin / Matt Chilton: laptop / Anthony Donovan: acoustic guitar / electronics / voices / Sonia Paco-Rocchia: bassoon. Composer: Anthony Donovan. (Anthony Donovan, February 2013)

A Friendly Grey: Transceiver / All music and lyrics by Volker Hartmann-Langenfelder / Vocals: Franziska Plückhan / Bandoneon: Stefan Schmidt / Farang / Lyrics: When I woke up this morning it was snowing!! Brought back a dream into my mind I dreamt in March or early April. In this dream I was walking through a forest in springtime. Fresh green leaves on the trees. While walking I kept looking at my own feet and when I looked up again, all the leaves where dry an brown. And I was thinking to myself: "It's strange, I didn't even notice the summer". And now it's snowing. No one should ever tell me again, that dreams can't come true!

Atom Earth Mother: A solo project from one half of :zoviet*france: Dedicated to the White Goddess and the Neolithic Farmers, and inspired by the prehistoric antiquities in Northumberland, primarily the enigmatic and beautiful ‘rock art’, a form of symbolism whose meaning has been lost in the mists of time. Utilising digital and analogue equipment and production technique, location recordings, found sound and employing experimentation as the creative tool to explore the notion of matriarchal, Atom Earth Mother embarks on a sonic journey to the origions of our civilization and indeed our very being

Avelino Saavedra: Mechanical Air is an improvisation made from the sounds produced by an air compressor and an airbrush, processed using analog effects pedals and loop pedals

Cagey House: Kid Feardive had been speaking less and less, and Katherine the Ghost had yet to utter a word. For a long time, Kid Feardive had built these elaborately noisy contraptions out of rebar and barbed wire and old flatware. And he had pushed them down staircases and rolled them down steep embankments and sometimes pulled them with his car. But lately the only sound he made was when he rapped the cap of his pen against a blank sheet of paper. Katherine the Ghost seemed put out by all this. She trained her beady eyes on the bouncing pen cap.  She twisted her thin lips around like she was going to spit or let slip some sharp invective. But then she smiled instead, and looked up at me and winked. And her eyes aren’t really all that beady. Just beady enough in fact

Chevo Légé: avec quoi écoute-t-on ? les oreilles ou les yeux ? la tête ou le corps ? dans quel état se trouvent notre corps et notre mental au moment d’aborder ce travail ? cherchons-nous à provoquer artificiellement un état particulier ? avons-nous envie de mettre l’accent sur les nerfs ? la réflexion ? la concentration ? la force physique ? une disponibilité de tout l’être ?

Chris Whitehead: is interested in the way sound can be used to evoke landscape, location and history. He has released field recordings on the Electronic Musik label, OBS, Unfathomless and Impulsive Habitat. In his work, and in the manipulated sound duo Ammonites with Chris Corner, the intention is always to immerse the listener in an unseen, textural environment. Chris is based in Whitby on the north east coast of England- A place which reverberates with deep echoes of the past / http://linearobsessional.weebly.com

Clive Pearman and Richard Sanderson: The duo of Clive Pearman and Richard Sanderson were both members of the avant-rock quartet Lost Robots. Performing as a duo primarily on acoustic instruments (resonator guitar, melodeon etc) but with some electronic processing, the music is quieter and more textured than their previous group /  http://linearobsessional.weebly.com

Crush!!!: Water Raquette/ Crush!!! are Mark Browne, Sonic Pleasure and Ian Smith. The group utilises an array of found and home-made sound making devices combined with more traditional instruments within an improvisational context. Sonic Pleasure is famed for her unique crafting of sound from bricks and masonry, reducing much of her instrumentation to dust by the end of a concert with an orange haze clearly visible over the performance area. Some of the bricks will be transported from her home, others will be collected near the venue. She also plays flute. Mark Browne plays piranha and castrato saxophones (sopranino “the small one that bites” and soprano “the Farinelli pastiche”), broken glass, clarinet, earth, burnt piano and bones. On this piece his instrumentation was restricted to water, game calls, tenor recorder, cymbals and gongs. Ian Smith plays brass in an extraordinary and creative manner. For this venture the aim was to exploit the use of water: splashing in water, changing the pitch of wind and percussion by submerging the instruments in water and generally making wet sounds. The members of the group individually created their contributions (with Sonic P living in Manchester, Ian in London, Mark in Aylesbury this has become a necessary activity for ongoing interaction). For 0021 the mixing and production was performed by Mark Browne. The activities of Crush!!! can be found at http://crushtime.bandcamp.com/  and are is represented on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Crush/#!/pages/Crush/347435088629590 There will be a Crush!!!

Edu Comelles: MORRA - EDU COMELLES / 2:03 min / Recorded at Dorgali, Sardinia. May 2011 / Morra is a hand game that dates back thousands of years to ancient Roman and Greek times. It can be played to decide issues, much as two people might toss a coin, or for entertainment. While there are many variations of morra, most forms can be played with two, three, or more players. In the most popular version, all players throw out a single hand, each showing zero to five fingers, and call out loud their guess at what the sum of all fingers shown will be. If one player guesses the sum, that player earns one point. The first player to reach three points wins the game. Some variants of morra involve money, with the winner earning a number of currency units equal to the sum of fingers displayed.

Grundik Kasyansky: dedicated to Russian absurdist poet Daniil Kharms and based on his story The Incubating Period. I sat in the incubator for four months. I remember only that the incubator was made of glass, was transparent and had a thermometer. I sat inside the incubator on cotton wool. I don't remember anything else about it. After four months they took me out of the incubator. They did this, as it happens, on the first of January 1906. By this means, I was to all intents and purposes born for a third time. But it was the first of January that was counted as my birthday

Pulcinella: is the alter-ego of musician, performer and visual artist Colin Sanderson, formerly of the Brooklyn-based psych/prog/performance art trio Manburger Surgical. Derived from the Commedia dell'arte archetype of the same name, Pulcinella is the embodiment of the "Kozmic Buffoon," a sock-a-delic idiot Man-Child hellbent on raising a ruckus. Sanderson uses his highly personal take on the Pulcinella character as a means to unravel inner mysteries of identity, trauma, and internal personal narrative. Pulcinella has had his visual art and video work exhibited through Babylon Projects, and has been performing in the underground Brooklyn Experimental Music/Performance Art scene for 5 years, both as a solo performer and with Manburger Surgical. Culling influence from renegade Performance Art, Z-Grade Horror/Exploitation Film, Noise, Freudian psychology, psychedelia, The Occult and The Grotesque, progressive rock, and puppetry & ventriloquism, Pulcinella's work is intended to jolt the senses as a means to lead toward an "ULTIMATE KOZMIC TROOTH." Pulcinella has currently been working with two talented percussionists: Diana K and Grandpa Scorpion, as well as collaborating with fellow DIY musician/performer Captain Careful and video artist Jim Tuite / http://pulcinella.bandcamp.com http://theworldofpulcinella.tumblr.com / http://www.facebook.com/pulcinellakozmicbuffoon

Ross Ackerman: Sheets hanging to dry flutter in the breeze as weft and weave align and shift creating  patterns like oil spreading on water

Ruela Pinho and Kicksville: Written around one of Tone Deaf's poems, Introspekt is about getting old and the eventual understanding that there's no point getting upset about it. It's also an oblique reference to the Buddhist idea that everything is transitory, never fixed. Existence is perceived as a series of phase changes, like liquid water turning into ice or gas and back again. There's no reason to struggle against these changes - they are and will be, and all the crying in the world won't stop them. And if reality and our place in it are temporary illusions created by our preconceptions, then as Aya sings in the melody/mantra, "Looking through the blind eye / We are not here / We are nowhere at all." Therefore, following the idea through to its logical conclusion, Introspekt is really about nothing! / Tone Deaf

Salford Media City vs Noise Research: A Noise Research remix of the track 'Doing Stuff is Fun' by Manchester band 'Salford Media City'. It was done at the bands request and NR was given carte blanche with regards to what was done with the music. Radically altered and re-processed, the piece is built up from the individual multitracks from the original work and no additional sounds were employed. As with much of Noise Research's work there are incredibly dense layers of sound, dystopian worlds and the feeling of something outside 'trying to get in'. Trust is the foundation of the Salford Media City: we are independent, impartial and honest. Assisting audience members in the practical application of dance is at the heart of everything we do. We take pride in delivering quality and value for money. Creativity is the lifeblood of our organisation. We respect each other and celebrate our diversity so that everyone can give their best. We, the Salford Media City, recognize the unity which embraces everything including you. We love you. Join us. Great things happen when we work together. Description ‘Salford Media City has brought and continues to bring considerable added musical value, they have great musical vision, they are prepared to take risks and remain both accessible and approachable. Other regions would love to have a musical developer of their calibre supporting the regional economic strategy and economic recovery.’

Shauin Robert: Microspia brings you methods of listening, from within a person who is drunk. Forgetfulness brings innocence and stupidity. A hidden recording in plain view. Shaun Robert ; founding member of factor X (1983 - 1994) and Mutant Beatniks / mutantbeatniks. Start doing this 'solo' work in 1995, using no samples. Commencing with Black Swing, a piece made with a lamp, record player drive belt, among other things. Later; Swan Song for a tape recorder (1997). Recorded using a rather battered and broken double tape machine, w' a 4 slider graphic and bass /stereo separation, by fusing and feeding it it back on it's self, w/ metal objects (coins, washers) and wire, making a layered distortion by removing the eraserhead, and detaching recorder-head to make it malleable to various positional adaptions effecting the stereo panning.  A piece for prepared tape machine or a circuit bending masterpiece, make your mind up

Wehwalt: is an individual in the sense defined by the german philosopher Max Stirner in his book Der Einzige und sein Eigentum ( The ego an dits own). He always refused to be limited to movements and schools. Since 1989, his conception of music leads him to a new attitude of no definition and a quest of new spaces of constant metamorphosis. Polymorphous entity, he gives priority to unique and spontaneous performances, combining unpredictable sonic textures with an inner self poetic inspiration in order to produce a « mise en abime » and a special kind of pyschic and physical creation / otorragie.blogspot.com

AG Davis and Jamison Williams: May 6, 1937 - Maniacal and amorphous word-less stream of consciousness throat-thrashing meets mangled and mutilated woodwind on side A.

Astral Social Club: “Twenty years from now, if I get asked to come up with a list of records or artists that speak of the late 2000s, then Neil Campbell’s Astral Social Club, and very definitely this second full-length for VHF, will be on it. The collision of electronic and acoustic textures is extreme and compelling all at once – spastic drum machines, flickering synthesizer riffs, mangled guitar lines and countless other bits of sonic debris cluttering and then overloading the stereo spectrum. This density of sonic information, packed into every ASC piece, overwhelms, and aurally approximates our own daily information flood, suggesting that instead of resisting it, maybe we should ride it.” (Matthew Wuethrich, dusted) “Neil Campbell is a one-man subculture. In 30 years of music-making in various configurations of improvised rock, psychedelia and electronics, he has released hundreds of hours of recordings, mainly in micro-editions of home-produced cassette, CD or mp3, and collaborated endlessly with a global network of musicians that have fallen through the cracks of genre or stylistic allegiance. Since separating from Leeds-based guitar drone group Vibracathedral Orchestra in 2006, he has mainly concentrated on his activities as Astral Social Club.” (Joe Muggs, the arts desk) “Given Neil Campbell’s musical track record, it may be surprising to hear him state that, “I don’t take psychedelic drugs.” With a penchant for experimentation, Campbell’s hallucinogenically inclined pallet has been an important presence on the British side of the experimental pond for years now. Having left the rock-drone pursuits of Vibracathedral Orchestra in favor of his own unit, Campbell continues to explore levels of electronic catharsis on this album, which moves from techno-inspired ravers to drifting expanses of electrified psychedelia.” (Henry Smith, brainwashed)

Bob Ostertag: Mark Dresser - contrabass / Gerry Hemingway - percussion / Phil Minton - vocals / Bob Ostertag - sampler / Say No More is a unique ensemble in the history of music. On the surface it is simply a superb quartet featuring four virtuosos. But through innovative use of computer technology, the group coexists with a digital mirror of itself. Changing form as it becomes virtual, then flesh and blood, then virtual again, Say No More combines the emotional power of live performance with the technical power of computer music, making a hybrid that transcends both media. Ostertag began Say No More by sending the three instrumentalists, separately, into studios with no instructions other than to record improvisations. Using a computer, Ostertag then took these tapes and reconstructed them into a "band" that played works he composed from fragments of the improvisations. The remarkable recording that resulted, Say No More, is possibly the first recording ever released by a band that had never played a note together. Ostertag then returned this recording, along with a score, to the musicians. In effect they were challenged to re-learn their own playing, but as heard through the prism of Ostertag's work. When the musicians gathered to rehearse, the ensemble began to develop a life of its own through the direct interaction of with the musicians struggling to perform the computer-derived material. In October 1993, the ensemble made a live recording at ORF-Vienna which was released as the band's second CD, Say No More in Person. It features the same compositions that Ostertag developed on the computer, performed in their transformed, concert rendition. Ostertag put the live recording back into the computer, exploded it once again into little bits, and assembled a new work, Verbatim, released in 1997. The group premiered the live version of Verbatim at the Taktlos Festival in Switzerland, 1996. A performance in Gent Belgium was released in 2000 as the fourth and final CD, Verbatim Flesh & Blood

Crush!!!: Cute Chaos!!! / Crush!!! are Mark Browne, Sonic Pleasure and Ian Smith. Following a number of successful concerts this year, the group has recently been described as “the new jam”. The group utilises an array of found and home-made sound making devices combined with more traditional instruments within an improvisational context. Sonic Pleasure is famed for her unique crafting of sound from bricks and masonry, reducing much of her instrumentation to dust by the end of a concert with an orange haze clearly visible over the playing area. Some of the bricks will be transported from her home, others will be collected near the venue. She also plays flute. Mark Browne plays piranha and castrato saxophones (sopranino “the small one that bites” and soprano “the Farinelli pastiche”), broken glass, clarinet, earth, gongs, burnt piano and bones. Ian Smith plays brass in an extraordinary and creative manner. For this venture the aim was to exploit the use of recording methods and create music that was not simply a ghosting of the concert performance. The members of the group individually created their contributions (with Sonic P living in Manchester, Ian in London, Mark in Aylesbury this has become a activity necessary for ongoing interaction). For 0020 there was no compositional outline and the mixing and production was performed by Sonic Pleasure.

The electric prepared guitar at the end is by my friend Arthur Bull. The title means: In the grassy paths of the contaminated mountain

Dental Dames: Lora Bloom: Guitar, Vocals / Jamie Campbell: Bass, Vocals / Bonnie MacAllister: Vocals, Keys / DENTAL DAMES at JR's by Jeanine Campbell: The Tom Waits like creeping on the keyboard great voice bold the kind that gets your attention and makes you stop feeling so self-conscious, ready for a kind of bluestocking combat. Is this an art band? No it’s not. Literal, lyrical, for writers, but the words are loud and clear. You can see parts of the brain lighting up little gaslight lotus petals. In contrast to the structure, here the words walk unaided, capable little spiders all in their own right. There’s references and alliteration, it’s all decidedly—can I say it? Po-po-mo. There’s real poetry here, gem-like sounds that sparkle and turn, twisting facets, adding an inhale in what’s between, building under the ruby deepness that’s not been present yet. “I want to tell you” Bonnie banshees, face scrunched up, hard to resist her, word-person that I am, she’s one. Oh my god. Was that a museum reference. Why yes it is, it’s the Brooklyn. It’s a love song for Judy Chicago. Something drops. Somebody cheers, keeps cheering which goes nicely when the singer says ovular. The audience is skeptically intrigues. Is this like school? It’s a tribute. There’s something about a Roman Empire. Incantations, borderline witchcraft especially with Campbells heavy strumming, patiently following Bonnie’s list of names. Considering the third beer with money I don’t have. It’s OK, water’s better anyhow. More names. I ask the bartender for a glass with extra ice, don’t realize that I’m going to get it in a plastic cup. Names, people are afraid of hearing women’s names read like this memorial style, everyone from Isis to Virginia Woolf to Susan B. Anthony is there in monumental attendance. Jaime starts the next one, sarcastic eye rolling because what she’s saying is important to her. Lora takes over, eyes close like me when I squint in front of the camera. I’m surprised at the harsh his in her voice,the edge. I was used to something civil, and now there’s disobedience, but it’s the earthy type, stronger than it should be. Patti Smith but without the compromise, something True Blood lurking there that makes it like glossy gash of photoshopped on a cover model who’s too pretty for words. I wonder if my soul’s old enough to take it. There’s a space that opens up here, and I find I don’t want a beer, I want to watch and and I want to write because suddenly there’s volume, there’s a bed to crawl under, someone else there to figure it out. Bonnie’s transition is seamless, barely noticeable. The ice water tastes good, not Schuykill at all. Neat little stabs at the keyboard. The crowd breaks up, I step outside to join the satellite bunch who’s snapping phone photos, smoking cigarettes in heavy, dank air. I have no money and I’m sleepy, thinking about avocados and home, wishing I could pay better attention because there’s another band I want to see. But distortion and a guy wearing a freedom of ’76 t-shirt steps on. Black Mountain, whirl of noise but the pleasant kind, the quiet harmonic glow of late nights spent under red lights, something golden and forgotten, an uncountable noun. There’s a twirling motion to the sound that makes no sense at all but rolls out smooth. I stop writing and I wish I hadn’t. The guitar it makes me think of the sky, majestic and orange burnt with gray, abruptly tarnished. I think briefly about how now I can happily go home but I find I’m not ready yet, I'm already letting go here because there’s freedom, there’s something lovely in its own right. He’s been doing this for a long time, you know because he knows how to make you forget. The contraction and expansion of space, that’s what noise bands are about, sneaking past border control time

Korhan Erel: http://korhanerel.com/ Korhan Erel is a computer musician, improviser, sound designer based in Istanbul, Turkey. He plays instruments he designs on a computer by employing various controllers. He also uses analog and digital electronics. He is a founding member of Islak Köpek, Turkey’s pioneer free improvisation group, which is regarded as the band that started the free improvisation scene in Turkey. He composes and designs sounds for dance, theater, installations and film. He collaborates with dancers, video artists and spoken word artists. Korhan’s computer performance system is called Omnibus. The instruments within Omnibus are a culmination of Korhan’s musical past and aesthetic choices. Omnibus instruments use concrete sounds (samples, field recordings), morphed and processed in realtime. They can be as simple as one single sample being played using a Nintendo Wii controller to a complex system that employs granular synthesis and spectral processing. The instruments are played interactively using Nintendo Wii controllers (Korhan’s choice of controller when he plays in ensembles with acoustic/electric instrument players), an iPad (used in solo/duo performances as well as ensemble concerts) and several midi controllers. Korhan spent two residencies at STEIM (Center for research & development of instruments & tools for performers) in Amsterdam, where he studied use of sensors in music performance and instrument design. He was a guest composer at the Electronic Music Studios in Stockholm in January 2011. He performed and had compositions played in radios, festivals in Turkey, Austria, Australia, Holland, Germany, Finland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Russia, Greece, Sweden and the UK. He performed telematic concerts over Skype in Germany, Spain and the US. Korhan has played with the following artists: Alexandra Reill, Christian Asplund, Dirk Stromberg, Ecotone Experimental Theater, Erdem Helvacioglu, Han-earl Park, Ilknur Ayisik, Jonas Kocher, Karlheinz Essl, Kevin William Davis, Kirstie Simpson, Le Quan Ninh, Mark Alban-Lotz, Michael Fischer, Michel Doneda, Nikos Kyriazopoulos, Oguz Büyükberber, Richard Nunns, Sumru Agiryürüyen, Tolga Tüzün, Tom Soloveitzik, Wolter Wierbos, Yanael Plumet, mecha/orga (Yiorgis Sakellariou)

Krishve: Faint sounds in the far distance. Traces of music. This is a place between places. On a journey. A landscape of ressonance. Clouds of sound swirling in and out of focus. A dance of spectral veils. Shrapnels of filtered feedback echoing between the mountains. This is not about arriving but about traveling. A perpetually undecided state of mind. As we don't know anything about where we are going – apart from vague rumors overheard in conversations – we are free to let our imaginations build castles in the sky. Nothing is real. The thought leaves us in a vacuum – suspended in a dreamlike state – in the end as real as physical reality – because it is a world created by our subconscious. The world we live in is our sensory apparatus. A direct linkup to our past, to the beginning of the universe and to the future. Krishve uses a fairly limited assembly of hardware to create a completely improvised time travelling experience. A small mixer is the hub of operations, while several small synths, stompboxes, acoustic instruments, Krishve's body - anything that makes the required sound - provide the raw sound material. Everything is performed live and recorded directly to 2-track. The limitations of dedicated hardware and the discipline it requires is a source of creative inspiration. Krishve works as a composer and sound designer for performances/exhibitions including most kinds of multimedia, theatre and film /www.krishve.com

Rose Bolton: www.rosebolton.com / Firmament of Time / My mother was a fantasist, visionary and an amateur astronomer. As a kid, she would take me to a rocky point in Killbear park (near Parry Sound, Ontario), and we would gaze deep into the night, observing and identifying shooting stars, planets and constellations. Over a period of 6 years until 1996, she constructed an intricate quilt, applying tiny phosphorescent beads to represent the milky way. A few years later she painted a number of acrylics on canvas about the night sky. One in particular is a visual depiction of a mysterious dream. In response to her art, Firmament of Time… is about stars, the unending scope of the universe and the unfathomable dark caverns of our own minds. I would also like to thank the City of  Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council for funding the creation of this work. The premiere of this work was at New Adventures in Sound Art, with John Kameel Farah, piano, and the electronic sounds came out of an eight channel speaker system, diffused live, through customized controllers / Bio: Based in Toronto, Rose Bolton creates music for documentary films. She is also well established as a composer who creates and envisions new sounds in the areas of classical and electronic music. She has written and produced full scores for four hour-long television documentaries for the CBC main network: Who’s Sorry Now?, The Disappearing Male, Surviving the Future, and End of Men. In 2011 she was commissioned by the Canadian Music Centre to create a sound and video installation for Toronto’s 2011 Nuit Blanche. The finished work, The Crown of the Bell, was produced in collaboration with film artist Marc de Guerre, and over 1000 people experienced the piece during the all-night event. Her concert music has garnered awards and grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council and the Toronto Arts Council; and her work has been performed across Canada by the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, the Vancouver Symphony, the Esprit Orchestra, Tapestry New Opera, L’ensemble contemporain de Montréal, New Music renowned Aradia Ensemble. Her music has been broadcast extensively on CBC radio and has been performed throughout Europe and North America

Tumei Tejas and Michael Durek: Music by Michael Durek, Video by Tumei Tejas / Hurricane Sandy devastated the New Jersey shore, as well as New York City and areas surrounding them. This collaborative effort of video by Tumei Tejas and music by Michael Durek immerses the viewer in the emotional response to this loss and the memories associated with the place. After a 5 day power outage following Hurricane Sandy, Michael Durek plugged in his theremin and this melody came out rather spontaneously.  He was reflecting on the loss and frustration felt throughout the American Mid-Atlantic region.  The track uses a single theremin with an octave delay effect so that it loops over itself. The video montage by Tumei Tejas layers aspects of memory and loss over the ubiquitous power of nature. It reflects on the to and fro, the passage of time, breakdown of permanence, and the decay of that which is familiar and well-loved. We dedicate this project to all who have suffered loss through this disaster and by extension disasters others have faced. We also dedicate this video to the selflessness of first responders and all who have given to help those in need

Vincent Berger Rond: Elle avait raison Hathor Description / Après la musique de l'homme (Un doux rêveur dans. Homme Sauvage dit.), voici la musique de la femme (Elle avait raison Hathor). Elle avait raison Hathor se veut déconnecté, hors de ce monde, en dehors du réalisme socio-historique lié aux thèmes choisis et surtout le moins terre-à-terre possible. Le projet ne se base même pas entièrement sur la mythologie (de laquelle il s'inspire librement). Ils'agit de se concentrer sur ce que je compose de mieux. Oui, il existait quand même un semblant de réalité dans Un doux rêveur dans. Homme Sauvage dit. Il s'agissait d'une erreur négligée et circonscrite depuis, l'ennemi sobre des cataclysmes inébranlables. Jusqu'à aujourd'hui, c'était seulement  l'erreur que l'on avait lue ! Elle avait raison Hathor complète également la logique derrière [{ }], celle d'une seule chanson et de quatre instrumentaux. Après avoir complété, une version vocale de la première composition avec l'aide de Laura Kilty, je me trouvais entièrement satisfait : la présence vocale omniprésente maintenant explorée, le texte dense résumant la thématique des autres textes, réunissant même les deux derniers projets à propos de l'homme et de la femme alors qu'il ne peut s'agir de que de la première chanson. Après Izanami, il me semblait que la musique devenait un contre-poids d'énergie positive ne confrontant les zones plus sombres qu'avec confiance et force. La légereté instrumentale de Maât m'a semblée toute nouvelle, nécessaire après une chanson saturée de partout. Les guitares de toutes sortes agissent comme la véritable voix de ce projet. Comme pour [{ }], les poèmes deviennent un lyrisme optionnel à celui qui veut les lire, rien n'est imposé, contrairement aux différends d'Izanami. L'interprétation demeure libre malgré mon amour pour la chanson lyrique et mon peu d'intérêt pour la composition de bruitage vocal (quelques-unes de mes compositions dans cette avenue me suffisent). After music about manhood (Un doux rêveur dans. Homme Sauvage dit.), here is music about womanhood (Elle avait raison Hathor). Elle avait raison Hathor is wanted disconnected, out of this world, outside socio-historical realism linked to the selected themes and mostly the least down-to-earth possible. The project is not even entirely based on the mythology (from which it is inspired freely). It is to concentrate on the composition that I do best. Yes, there was still a form of reality in Un doux rêveur dans. Homme Sauvage dit., it was a neglected mistake, now found out, the humble enemy of unwavering cataclysms. Until today, it was only the error that we had read ! Elle avait raison Hathor also completes the logic of [{ }] made out of one song and four instrumentals. After completing a vocal version of the first composition with the help of Laura Kilty, I found myself completely satisfied: the omnipresent vocal presence has already been explored once, the dense poem is including most of the elements of the other poems, also linking the two last projects about manhood and womanhood, yet it can only be the first composition musically and  lyrically. After Izanami, it seems to me that the music is becoming a counter weight of positive energy that only gets into dark zones with confidence and strength to get out. The instrumental lightness of Maât sounded all fresh suddenly, needed after a song that was saturated on all levels. The guitar of all kinds are the true voice of this project. Like in [{ }], the poems become an optional lyrical aspect to who want it, nothing is imposed, as opposed to the disagreements in Izanami. The interpretation remains free as much as I love lyrical songs and have little interest for the composition/collaboration with purely sound oriented vocal interpretation (a few of my compositions explored it in the past and that was enough). (Japan) The first gods summoned two divine beings into existence, the male Izanagi and the female Izanami, and charged them with creating the first land. (Egypt) Maât was the ancient Egyptian concept of truth, balance, order, law, morality, and justice. (Egypt) Hathor's cult is unusual. Many of them were artisans, musicians, and dancers who turned their talents into creating rituals that were nothing short of works of art. (Inuits) a young woman (Sedna) becomes the mother of all sea creatures. (Greeks) In the Odyssey, Homer describes her as 'The loveliest of all immortals,' living on the island of Aeaea. V What dominates most here are Fred Szymanski's several electric guitars whose sound and improv-flow are modified and recomposed by Vincent Berger Rond in late 2011; and Jim Goodin on banjo (Hathor) is important. V - Laura Kilty on vocal composition, singing, rewriting lyrics (Izanami). V Alexandra Fol on electric organ plays Hope of Dawn by Ana Paola Santillan Alcocer (Izanami); Bruce Hamilton's electronic pieces Rockplaco and Dark are remade (Maât; Circée); as is Steve Moshier's electronic piece The Far End of a Forgotten Street (Circée).

Wilhelm Matthies and Paulo Chagas: “Lemmings Concert” is a graphic composition by Paulo Chagas. The included track icon shows the graphic composition. Wilhelm Matthies interpreted it to evoke the literal closeness and itchiness of many together, but also the dread of going over the edge. Paulo added to this mood with the soprano saxophone / Paulo Chagas http://soundcloud.com/pauloxagas

Wilhelm Matthies and Pedro Duarte: “morning field, early fall-1” / This piece was made, in part, as a response to photo-field walks. The track icon is taken from one of those walks. A sense of organic seasonal change literally and metaphorically is the intent of this piece. Wilhelm Matthies on mosesa, a bowed instrument of his own invention, and Pedro Duarte on piano. It is part of a set we are working on and releasing on SoundCloud / http://soundcloud.com/wilhelm-matthies/sets/fields-2/ / Photo field walks can be seen on my Facebook site: http://www.facebook.com/wilhelm.matthies /
