We have received works by Robert Curgenven, an Australian sound artist living in Ireland who has released works from LINE, Tapeworm, Touch, etc. in the past.

This work is close to an installation in which he plays his favorite drone with various approaches, such as a pipe organ in a church, a drone in turntable playing, and a feedback drone in field recording. DL code included.

Lyrics:

"The 3 albums that encapsulate this set all, at their heart, concern air and the attendant inter-permeability and fluidity of volumes – be they discretionary or open volumes, architectural or spatiotemporal. Each volume is subject to the specificities of: their resonance; The 3 albums present different harmonics, gestural and durational possibilities to encourage us to step out of the perceptual frameworks that enclose us. Each album offers a unique instrumental foundation: experimental turntable techniques. inter-woven with piano & pipe organ harmonics (Bardo); acquire architectural interventions in post-Communist architectures and their locational context via custom-made oscillators (SPECTRES); extended pipe organ techniques with an accompanying soundsystem that plumb architectural harmonics and corporeal resonances ( Bronze Lands). These works entreat us to think and hear beyond the structures enclosing each instrumental- and performance-approach – the turntable body, the architectural, the pipe organ, the speaker enclosure itself, even the confines of an audience as a gathering – and also to consider these longform works as an inter-related suite of aural and conceptual worlds. "

BARDO:
Bardo deploys turntables accompanied by discrete intrusions of pipe organ and piano harmonics to create a spatial and temporal suspension permeated by an aetheric tactility, as sounds disorientingly enter and leave, merging and confusing the boundaries of interiority and exteriority. , an in-between zone which draws on the tension, both physical and perceptual, between two contradictory positions – while cumulatively fostering a state where the listener simultaneously holds both positions equally – where you not only expects things to change but also to remain as they Fundamentally, listening is to hear not only sound but also disturbs in the air in a given location: This engenders an embodied and physical experience, where quiet undisturbed air is as audible as a fierce wind. This kind of listening is also about being. attendant to the specificities of the air – changes in pressure, temperature and humidity --their effect on the air and sound a longside their importance for a location's context over a given duration.

SPECTRES:
Comprised entirely of in-situ recordings using tone generators in 9 post-Communist architectures, SPECTRES presents an interrogation of contemporary society across the threshold of the architecture from a former, but recent, epoch. Stehende verdampft ”, is often poetically translated as“ all that is solid melts into air ”, but literally is“ all that is Standing and has Stood [will] vapourise ”. --in physical terms: the architectures and the utopian sociocultural visions these architectures framed. SPECTRES uses the air itself to interrogate a series of post-Communist architectural locations across Poland via a simple intervention / modulation: drawing the surrounding air and current manifestation of contemporary political and geographical economies into the buildings, their volumes: the very monuments of those that Stood and are Standing, the dwellings SPECTRES' 10day recording in 2019 traversed cultural centers, social housing projects through to northern and southern centerss of the Polish Solidarity movement) at its 30year anniversary, their architectures present a threshold, framing each location and context.
SPECTRES was commissioned by MŰTŐ & UH Festival (Hungary) with SHAPE platform (EU).

BRONZE LANDS:
Full live concert recording of Bronze Lands (Tailte Cré-Umha) for Sydney Festival on the 64ft Sydney Town Hall grand pipe organ with in-house soundsystem including twelve 18 "subwoofers. Performed before a live audience at the sold-out event, 300 people lying down and 300 more seated upstairs, in the 80m long Centennial Hall before the 20m high & 30m wide organ. Bronze Lands (Tailte Cré-Umha) is a solo performance for live pipe organ and soundsystem. of-the-century unmodernized pipe organs across County Cork and rural Cornwall which effectively allowed precise control of the movement of air through each organ's pipes. The basis for the piece's score and structure draws on Ireland's relations with Cornwall and Mediterranean Europe. 5000 years ago Bronze Lands derives the shape and movement of the score from the shape and mo, coming into the Bronze Age, Ireland's copper and Cornwall's tin traversed the continent to make bronze. Bronze Lands uses this navigation of the landscape itself as the score as those people and materials travel land, sea, sky and Europe in a climate of change.
