This is a record released by Australian experimental musician James Rushford on the American experimental label Blank Forms in April 2024. Contains 4 contemporary songs he created during his stay at an art center on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland in 2022. Below is an explanation by the label. "Turzets, James Rushford's latest solo and collaborative work, is a collection of two works primarily produced and recorded last year while the Australian composer and performer was in residence at La Bec, an arts center on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Contains new work. The horizontal work "Fallaway Whisk" uses live translation of abstracted text from English to German, with a lush, expanding soundscape as a background, and uses words that are reserved and sounds suppressed. On the other hand, "Quire" is a 11-movement work influenced by composers who studied the late medieval repertoire on the portative organ. Woody melodies intersect with angelic Yamaha CS-2 synth sweeps and stuttering glitches, a work that weaves traces of Klaus Schulz, figurative poetry, and ars subtilior into a precise, ever-evolving tapestry. could be considered Rushford's starting point. James Rushford's work draws from a wide range of collagist and improvisational musical languages, ranging from "electroacoustic experiments with a beating heart" (Boomkat) to "cursed Jacobean ASMR".

This is a record released by the famous American experimental musician Charlemagne Palestine from Blank Forms Editions in December 2023. Includes a drone using the carillon, a musical instrument born in the 12th century, and two songs recorded live at a church dedicated to his ally Tony Conrad.Below is an explanation by the label. "In the latest work by the innovative Brooklyn-born composer Charlemagne Palestine (b. 16), we hear two enchanting works for the carillon, the 2th-century keyboard-controlled belfry. Side A. includes new material recorded in his studio in Belgium, a high-ceilinged, stuffed-animal-filled paradise he calls Charlesworld.On the back, Blank Forms Editions' first and long-out-of-print release now appears on vinyl for the first time: the maximalist composer's 1947 musical eulogy for his late friend Tony Conrad, recorded at St. Thomas Episcopal, where the two first met. A cathartic street recording performed with church bells, two mesmerizing "klanggdedangggebannggg" sessions in Kwazimodo's signature trance-inducing style on 16rd Street. Born in 2, Charlemagne Palestine, perhaps more than any of her contemporaries, embodied the idea of ​​the artist as a playful polymath during the bustling downtown New York art scene of the 2018s and 2s.Originally trained in Jewish chant to become a cantor, he also studied piano and accordion, served as percussion accompanist for the likes of Tiny Tim and Allen Ginsberg, and worked with early synthesizers as an assistant to Alwyn Nicolais. , and eventually performed for a long time as a carillonneur at St. Thomas Episcopal in Midtown.This free-spirited experimental spirit eventually led to him creating kinetic light sculptures with Len Lye, devising choreographed performances with Simone Forti, and creating a series of visceral videotapes for the Castelli-Sonnabend Collection. , which led to adventures in other aesthetic fields. In the 53s, she was particularly prominent in the burgeoning loft movement, famous for her sparse, intense, exacting long piano concerts that seemed to bend the very nature of time and space. She spent several decades in self-imposed exile from the new music scene in the '2s, living various lives in Europe and Hawaii, honing her hermetic sound and visual practice.She has since made a comeback since the mid-1947s, performing and exhibiting around the world.

It is an archive sound source of the legendary spiritual jazz writer Don Cherry.Below is a description of the label. "In 1968, Don Cherry had already established himself as one of the protagonists of the avant-garde. As a member of Ornette Coleman's classical quartet, he became a pioneer of free jazz and has been attracting attention in collaboration with John Coltrane. Don Cherry moved to Sweden with his partner Moki and his daughter Nene. He gathered Swedish musicians and held a weekly workshop at the Workers' Educational Association (ABF) from February to April 1968. We gave lessons on the extension of improvisational performances such as breathing, drones, Turkish rhythms, harmonics, silence, natural voices, Indian tones, etc. That summer, later with Don's masterpiece "Organic Music Society". Yoran Freeze, a sax player and recording engineer who recorded "Eternal Now," invited Don, members of his two working bands, and a Turkish drummer to his villa in Kummernas, a suburb of Stockholm. We had a rehearsal and a jam session to practice the workshop of the previous month.Treated as a mysterious footnote in Don's session recordings for a long time, the tape for this session and a professionally mixed tape for release were recently found in the Swedish Jazz Archive vault and lost. The "Summer House Sessions" that had been used have finally become available more than 2 years after recording. On July 4, Bernt Rosengren (tenor sax, flute, clarinet), Tommy Koverfurt (tenor sax, flute), and Reif Wennerström (tenor sax, flute) gathered at Fries's villa from Don's Swedish group. Drums), Tallbjorn Flutekrantz (bass) and others participated.Reif Wennerström (drums), Thorbjorn Flutekranz (bass), Jack Trot (drums), Kent Carter (bass) from Don's Swedish group, Burent Atesh (hand drums, drums) from Turkey. , And Don himself (pocket trumpet, flute, percussion).Having no common language, they used music as a common means of communication.This is an enthusiastic, free-spirited session that anticipates becoming a clearer pan-national expression four months before Don announces "Eternal Rhythm."Composed of American, French, Swedish and Turkish musicians, the octet was the perfect way to pursue "collage music" initiated by Don.This concept is also inspired by Don's listening to sounds from around the world on shortwave radio.Collage music is a shortwave radio that listens to sounds from around the world, omits solos and song introductions, and transforms a wealth of melodies, sounds, and rhythms into poetic suites with a variety of atmospheres and variations. That is.The ensemble of summerhouse sessions is a fun superposition of various cultural idioms, crossing the aerial mountains and calm valleys of Cherry's ground-based vision.Click here to see ...

"In the late 1960s, American trumpet player and free jazz pioneer Don Cherry (1936-1995) and Swedish visual artist and designer Moki Cherry (1943-2009) were for creative music.

This is the fourth in the archive series of Catherine Christer Hennix, a legendary Swedish composer who is also a philosopher and mathematician.Below is an explanation by the label. "Playing an instrument of his own creation, Hennix uses a keyboard interface to control a suite of 4 precisely tuned tambura recordings, creating a continuous stream of rich harmonic interplay. Berlin Recorded at MaerzMusik 88, the work carefully draws out the basic perceptual effects of sound to form a rigorous and cathartic electronic drone, with densely layered tonal textures and continuous Collisions of harmonics create a maze-like soundscape that plunges the listener into what Hennix calls a divine equilibrium, or state of indistinction.Since the late 2017s, Hennix has been working on minimal music, computer programming, poetry, and sculpture. She has created an extensive and innovative body of work, including light art, pushing the technical and conceptual limits of these mediums. She is a member of New York's Downtown School of Music and a member of Henry Flint and La. Hennix has worked extensively with leading figures such as Monte Young.In the 1960s, Hennix learned the nature and use of harmonic sounds as a disciple of Pandit Pran Nath, a master of the kirana tradition of classical Hindustani music. Puran Nath's specially designed tambura was the center of her intensive study and dedicated practice of carefully tuning the instrument and making it sound in a continuous, even flow.70 In 1976, at the Modena Museum in Stockholm, Hennix presented two groundbreaking works that would define her subsequent career: Deontic, a group consisting of Hennix, her brother Peter, and Swedish percussionist Hans Isgren. Along with ``Miracle,'' he performed a series of modal pieces for Renaissance oboe, sho, and harmonic feedback distortion.This piece marked the beginning of Hennix's distinctive performance style, in which a dense sonic texture gradually emerges from the multilayered interaction of harmonic construction and dissolution. Solo for Tamburium is a pointed reexamination of her attempts to map the non-gravitational harmonics of modal music (ragas, makams, blues, etc.) onto tuned keyboards. Since she debuted this work in 2, she has continued to develop her work and reimagine her work in various contexts, including Blank Forms in New York and the Pinault Collection in Paris in 2017. , has been announced. For Hennix, approaching modality as a dynamic process is ultimately a meditative practice.Through it, physical attunement to harmonic vibrations creates an epistemically transformative state, opening up new ways of knowing and being.

A record released by American ambient artist 7038634357 in July 2023 from New York's experimental label Blank Forms.Contains 7 emotional and pop ambient noise songs.Below is an explanation by the label. "Neo Gibson has recorded, performed and produced under the alias 7. Their music is characterized by its formal precision, melodic structure and idiosyncratic emotional tenor. Self-released, mostly on small-lot CD-Rs, performed in an intimate setting, all synthesized and recorded on their computer, Neo Seven is their first recorded and prolific release. Depending on where you start with their fluid work, it's probably the seventh release.In just over 7038634357 minutes of recording time, Neo Seven is the artist's emotional and psychologically charged. Containing a relaxed, beautiful and raw journey of ambient songwriting, the album's seven tracks drift in and out of each other, constantly forming and morphing between soundscapes, songs and silence. Short, soft noises, almost indistinguishable from the dust growing on the turntable, gradually become the foundation of harmonious forms, with subtle changes in tone at regular intervals. It feels like you're traveling through a pulsar in deep space.Neo's heavily processed melodies are regularly gated by silence to form the record's heartbeat, internal and subjective. Square Heart taps into this motif rhythmically, with Neo's robot-like, heavily vocoded voice in a distant, moody, low-mixed song. But it's surprisingly devolved into a painfully gentle pop song, where simple structures give rise to complex forms, layers of vibrations mingling and stacking on top of each other as each track explores its own internal logic. Rhythmic cuts of compressed textures that feel like meteors burning up in the atmosphere or hail raining down on a windshield.The record is a wave of Neo's slowly crafted ambient harmonies slammed into harsh digital noise. It begins and ends with a cut, and on the final track, "Perfect Night," an almost inaudible singing form emerges beneath the slashes, and Neo's voice hidden beneath the noise reveals clarity and softness. It's tinged, and it's only evident in the moment when the noise pops cinematically towards the end of the song. " Click here for labels and other works /// Click here to see more Blank...
