This record was released by Australian acoustic author Lawrence English and Jamie Stewart on the duo HEXA in October 2021 on Lawrence's label Room 10.Includes 40 deep low-end drones-dark ambient songs.The following is an explanation by Lawrence. "When I was a kid, I had two dreams over and over, both of which were about the house I lived in. The house is high, but below it is an almost unfinished Boro house. The back of the house was like a maze of small rooms, concrete pits, collections of building materials, plumbing, and leftover furniture, along with a bed of earthen sand-hard soil. It was a space. The first dream I had was early in the morning when a burning bird fell from the sky from the window of the kitchen. The bird was an evolution of the candles of the Makuya, a twisted eternal flame. The shape of the house was symbolized by moving its wings. I have never seen this dream since I was an adult, but I can remember it vividly. The second dream is the concrete experience I experienced when I was young. The fierceness, though a distant reference, has recently emerged. This dream is buried deep in the labyrinth-like unfinished features beneath my house. Dreams usually start when I'm playing on the soil of the moon, and gradually I hear a sound through a large concrete hole in the center of the space. As I grew up, I had to go check it out. I was called by the sound. I couldn't express it anywhere else. When I looked into the pits, there was always some kind of hatch, often seen in submarine movies. There's something similar to a pressure door, where the sound comes from underneath the hatch, buried deep and small, as if you were listening to bass music from a car parked on a block. It was a pounding, hammer-like sound. Inevitably, when I twisted the hatch, it became a mechanical world reminiscent of the internal psychology of what is now called "Tetsujin Tetsuo."Mostly duo tones, shaded in dark gray and black, with an oily, moist, rich atmosphere.When I entered the hatch and got off the ladder (there was always a ladder), the pressure of the sound increased, and it was as if the whole body was swallowed by this monolithic underground machine.It wasn't revealed what the machine did or what it was, but what made me feel was that something beyond my usual understanding trained day and night. It was to give infinite power and command beyond my understanding.I'm surprised that the dream has reappeared before me over the past year.Perhaps it's the result of the quietness of the world and the ability to listen to the most subtle acoustic changes when we sleep.The remote sounds that are normally hidden in the hustle and bustle of the night view of the city enter into my dreams and provoke some sort of speculative consciousness.This post-hypnotic condition prompted me to return to the place I dreamed of when I was a kid, but at the same time I wasn't allowed full access to that place, which was rather reluctant.Even if you have a hatch, you can't enter in the same way, and you can't unlock it in the same way.When I told Jamie about this dream last year, he also said his sleep pattern was unstable.This has led us to think about the recent shift in world mechanics towards the emergence of nature.Industrial products, machinery, and other acoustic by-products of human (or non-human) labor are reaching out from the quiet environmental noise floor.What is normally immersed in the (sub) urban scape is unearthed, and at this special moment it becomes an external force that bothers us from a distance and unleashes internal uncertainties.This music is a transposition of this experience, written for the moment when consciousness is definitely inferred.

This record was released in October 2021 by the American acoustic writer Marina Rosenfeld, who has been released by Shelter Press and iDEAL in the past, on the label room 10, which is presided over by the acoustic writer Lawrence English in Brisbane, Australia.Below is a commentary by the label. "Teenage Lontano" and "roygbiv & b" are 40 and 2008 works, respectively, and consist of two major works by composer and artist Marina Rosenfeld.Both works are choruses imagined and performed for teens.Premiered at New York's huge Park Avenue Armory, "Teenage Rontano" is a groundbreaking "cover version" of the 2011s masterpiece by Hungarian composer György Ligeti for orchestra. It is a work.Teenage Rotano has been reconstructed as an immersive sound environment bisected by a row of teenagers wearing headphones. 2 Under a 10/1960 turn loudspeaker, the voices of teens make Ligeti's dissonant chords echo in their hearts.Teenage Rotano has been performed on three continents and will premiere in France in 33 as part of Musica Strasbourg. In roygbiv & b, asynchronous and sometimes noisy song fragment spells slowly swell and disappear, centered around the deliberate misunderstanding of the acronym ROYGBIV.In Rosenfeld's version, "r" is "are" ("Who are you?"

This is a cassette released by Australian sound writer Robin Fox, who has been released by Editions Mego in the past, on the label Room 2021, which is presided over by sound writer Lawrence English in Melbourne, Australia in December 12.Includes two modular drone songs.The following is a commentary by the writer himself.Everyone seems to live their own apocalypse.That is inevitable.It incorporates the inevitable feeling that the end of the world, as we know it, is just around the corner while we live on Earth.It is part and part of what each unit of human consciousness believes it is at the center of everything.When I try to avoid catastrophic thoughts, a sense of fear and anxiety creeps in and is now in my heart, which is also reflected in this work.The two tracks in this release are linear takes recorded on my studio's Eurorack modular system.The two songs were recorded on different days and in different patches, but they seem to be related.Both sessions began with the desire to patiently explore the harmonic series and create something vast.At that time, two magnificent works were born that expressed the sadness and disconnection that struck the city and my heart.Listen to these tracks when the light is changing.At dawn, dusk, or the moment when the sun emerges from behind dark clouds, on the borderline.While Threnody is lamenting, there is hope for the growing harmony phrase.From this era, we have the feeling that it may be better than before.We have to be better than before.everytime.Click here to see more Room40 releases available at Tobira ....

It is a co-production released in November 2021 by the acoustic authors Magda Mayas and Tina Douglas from Melbourne, Australia, which have been announced by Another Timbre and others in the past, on the label room11, which is presided over by the acoustic artist Lawrence English in Brisbane, Australia.The booklet contains scores, dialogue and photos.The following is a commentary by the writer himself. "I met Tina about 40 years ago through a fellow musician in Melbourne. Tina listened to my performances on various occasions, and I visited her studio and watched her performances many times. It quickly became clear that we had a personal and aesthetic connection, and in years of conversation we shared a way of working. We are both improvised. Attracted by the intuitive process, I create works using unique objects and tools and build close relationships with them. Things generate ideas, limit my actions, and fundamentally compose my work. Tina's score is very sculptural and tactile. The piano and my objects and the preparations in them also feel sculptural, tactile and embodied. Tina's score When I started recording music to react to, I want to slow things down, expose some fragility and imperfections, and one melody, one chord, one small note is enough With piano, an orchestra-like approach is possible, and I often do that, but I felt that this collaboration didn't require this kind of complexity. The score has some kind of fragility that I like. It's a thin paper score, everything I carried from Australia to Berlin, cutouts, etc. is very fragile and beautiful, and I want the music to be that way too. I felt it.

Maria Moles, a percussionist from Melbourne, Australia, who has previously released on Nice Music, will release the latest work in January 2022 from the Australian ambient writer Lawrence English's label Room 1.Contains all 40 songs.The following is a commentary by the writer himself. "For Leolanda" was produced during the lockdown in Melbourne in 4.I am very grateful that I was healed by listening to and making music, and I was able to make it in the meantime.Most of the works were inspired by listening to Filipino Kolintang music, some applying composition techniques to the combination of synthesizers, percussion, tape loops and drum kits. The name In Pan-as is named after Pilar's grandfather's farm, where my mother played regularly.The drum kit part is an arrangement of the rhythms I heard on the beautiful album "Muranao Kakolintang --Philippine Gong Music".The first inspiration for this song was in a telephone conversation with my mother, who suddenly asked me to sprinkle my mother's ashes on the bread on the farm after her death.Then I wondered what kind of ritual should be performed to celebrate the life of the person who is most important to me.I thought that if I danced with a rhythm like this song, it would surely fit. Mansaka is a song inspired by the Mansaka tribe of the Compostela Valley, and I loved listening to their music.This song has evolved into something completely different, personal.As a drummer, I usually start with a drum kit, but this album harmonizes the overtones from the singing bowl, bowing cymbals, and bells, and attempts to compose with a synthesizer.This album is dedicated to my mother, Le Holland. ...

Christina Giannone, an American / NY acoustic artist who has announced in the past from Past Inside the Present, is the latest work released in January 2022 from the label room1, which is presided over by the acoustic artist Lawrence English in Brisbane, Australia.The following is a commentary by the writer himself. "While making this record, I realized that I was going back to the idea of ​​escape and how intensive psychological quests play a role. The main purpose of this project is the subconscious. It's a process that encourages you to leave the front line and allows you to jump into the subconscious. In a sense, you can start the escape process by falling from your consciousness to another state. It may be that, in this place away from the consciousness, there is the realm of the soul, and in the groove of the spirit there is a "zone" and a "portal" to another dimension.I wanted to provide this album with an opportunity for people to reach out to these ditches, get to know them, and be invited to live there for even the moment.I hope each work will help to transcend these rooms and spaces in the subconscious world.There, your perception transforms and evolves in the direction of your choice, allowing for free expression and introspection.It is in the subconscious that there are new possibilities for freedom and perhaps more generally cultivated.We are often afraid to observe the world within ourselves, but they can serve higher purposes and provide basic cognitive and survival tools.By allowing us to visit our inner dimensions, we may be able to find an oasis of peace and eternal self-assurance.This work is a soundtrack to such a place, a promise they have, and for all of us to travel in our hearts.Click here to see more Room40 releases ...

Society does not accept us with multiple identities. To be easy to understand. Easy to understand, Easy to measure. The movie allowed him to be free from it. This is what we feel very strongly, and in contrast, sound and music are free from everything. That's why I thought it was appropriate to sample the ultimate sampler. To talk about the concept of identity through those who have lived it and those who have acknowledged it. You're going to make a pit stop across Inshara Land. This street is dense. We live on top of each other. We're anxious to create from nothing. The place is a living place. It is permanent. In Insharaland, we happen to recognize our interrelationships in front of the mirror and we are multiple. We are forced to recognize the fact. We can only make points together.

This is the latest work released in January 2022 by American acoustic artist Steve Roden.This work is an installation work created for the exhibition "The Grand Promenade" held in Athens, Greece.The booklet contains essays.The following is a commentary by the writer himself.The exhibition, held at various archaeological sites and historic sites in central Athens, created a situation where site-specific contemporary works interact with the historic environment.Initially not presented as a candidate site, I begged the curator at the church of St. Dimitris Lumbaldiadis of architect Dimitris Pikionis, about a 1-minute walk from the main pass of the Grand Promenade. I got permission to make a work.The original promenade designed by Pikionis can still be seen in some areas, but many of the original designs in this area were modified during the pre-Olympic "restoration" of 10.The path leading to the church further impresses Pikionis' vision for the entire promenade, and I wanted to draw viewers and listeners into his world through my work.When I first saw this little church, I was completely breathtaking and soon began to think of works that would resonate with this church but not interfere with it.The church itself is still in use, so I wanted to make it a gentle work that wouldn't get in the way of those who worship there.Therefore, I decided to use a large tree in front of the church to create a hanging work that produces a visual presence and a sound that harmonizes with the sound of insects and the tranquility of the area.The audio was made from field recordings and small "poor" things such as tin whistling and toy harmonica.These "musical instruments" were proposed by the Athens Musical Instrument Museum, and although decent musical instruments occupy most of the museum, there are musical toys, religious things, and other sounds that are not considered musical instruments in the basement. The equipment that comes out is housed in a wonderful display case.I felt that these naive things were related to Pikionis's way of thinking about architecture and crafts, and his interest in the relationship between indigenous culture and intellectual and modern culture.I felt like it had something to do with it.Click here to see more Room2004 releases available ...
