This is a CD released in September 40 by Lawrence English, the owner of the Australian experimental label Room2022.Contains 9 drone songs.Below is a commentary by the author himself. I am well reminded of the opening line of William Gibson's work Neuromancer, "The sky above the harbor was the color of television set to dead channels."In the early 14s when this book was written, dead TV channels were a dead gray of noise.But now that I read this book, that character has changed.The dead channel of the digital age is a rich, saturated sky blue.The reference effect of time is not constant, but rather evokes new perspectives and ideal new understandings.This album, Approach, is an echo that has traveled with me for 1980 years, even if I wasn't fully aware of it.This album is a record about memory, how seemingly random encounters shape us, and how experiences accumulate over time.It's like a distorted mirror that catches the fading glow of the fire that forged me.This record has its roots in Yoshihisa Tagami's representative manga "GREY".This album is in many ways the soundtrack to that cartoon.At least in the West, Gray was one of the first manga to be translated and circulated outside of Japan (yes, before Akira).After that, it was the first drop of a torrent that flowed out of Japan to the rest of the world.It is also the first manga I bought myself when I was 33 years old and read serially.I tend not to think or talk much about my teenage years.However, in my teens, I had deep experiences that lead me to where I am now, and I built a bond of heart.But most of that time was a form of penance, a daily performance of self-defense.The past few years have been a silent battle against the expectations of what I'm not interested in sharing.The boys' school I went to becomes a vicious prison if you don't participate in hegemonic masculinity, or if you, like me, rebel against hegemonic masculinity.I don't need to elaborate on my experience, it's just that a few years after high school, a classmate approached me at a stationery store and asked me to forgive her for what I had done.I was willing to forgive him, but he clearly seemed to be more wounded than I was.At that time, I was like a sponge of culture, so I wasn't trapped by negative experiences. It's hard to quantify how much cultural consumption I had as a teenager, but I can now see how formative that experience was.One example of this became clear when I happened to remember "GREY" last year and read it again.Even though the main characters, Gray, were talkative and sometimes lovable characters, I deeply identified with their sense of determination. Grey's rejection of societal expectations (which is foregrounded by detective writer Harlan Ellison's foreword to this edition, highlighting the class struggles that haunt the story), the system and social norms. The attitude of not acknowledging immobility clearly resonated with me.And that nihilistic optimism, combined with an unbridled rage, fascinated the young me.This record is also a sonic postcard written for his erratic and capricious self.It's certainly more than that, but I want to recognize and appreciate that belligerent young man who seems so far away now.I recognize that their navigational skills, their curiosity, their determination to discover who they are and not who they say they are, is what makes me who I am today.I also pay tribute to my family and friends (and cultural assets like this cartoon) that supported and guided my young body and mind.Without them, it's hard to know where I would be today.Click here for labels and other works /// Click here to see more Room13 releases available at...

This is a record released in October 2022 by ambient artist Peter Knight from Melbourne, Australia, on Room10, a label led by sound artist Lawrence English from Brisbane, Australia.Contains 40 minimalistic ambient drone songs using trumpets, violins, cellos, and synths. Comes with DL code.Below is a commentary by the author himself. “Most of this record was made in the shadow of COVID and deep in the mouth of Melbourne's long winter closures in 5. It's a meditation on the nature of connection. One of the only people I saw outside of my family this time of year was my old friend and teacher, Ania Wollwitz, and we met on the waterfront near the Docklands, where our zones overlapped, bright and cool. We talked while walking on a winter afternoon, and when Ania passed away unexpectedly in September, that conversation became a big part of my thoughts. During her time there, she would gather threads of ideas, record them on her cell phone, and write them down in her notebook, which would then resonate in her head. was doing.Her work was informed by everything (a lot) she read, but it was crafted in a dreamy way.It is a state in which the subconscious mind springs up and words shape themselves in meaningful ways, resonating rather than expressing.I thought a lot about that while making this song.We recorded every day with trumpets, an old Revox reel-to-reel, some synths, a harmonium borrowed from a friend, and whatever else was out there.I mainly worked on diving a little deeper each time I sat down.Through the simple process of exhaling, I explored my relationship with the trumpet, which has been through many twists and turns.The breath-generated timbre was unfolded in long tape loops, degraded beyond recognition by a chain of pedals and plug-ins, leaving only traces of the initial gesture.Other times, while riding long distances on my bike, I listened to the previous day's work with an earpick, gliding through familiar streets where the lack of people and movement felt a little strange.We often rode the Footscray Rd adjacent to the harbour, coasting past the old boat moorings and down towards the Docklands to stop pedaling.The sounds coming from the dark studio were mixed with low air passing through helmets, bicycle gears, birds chirping, and cars.Then I remembered her last conversation with Ania.In the afternoon sun, squinting at the light on the water, she explores the different words for blue in Polish and Russian, and how words don't just change how we perceive things, they actually perceive us. He talked about changing things.That afternoon, I felt like anything was possible.Click here for labels and other works /// Click here to see more Room2020 releases available at...

A collaborative CD by Indonesian duo Senyawa and Australian experimental musicians Lawrence English/Aviva Endean/Peter Knight/Helen Svoboda/Joe Talia.Below is a commentary by label owner Lawrence English.My first sighting of Senyawa was in the early 2010s.She competed at the Monafoma Festival in Hobart.Senyawa's performance that day was memorable.At the same time, it was a dubious foreshadowing of what was to come.This project, The Prey And The Ruler, finds its roots in the volatile months of mid-2021.As the pandemic progressed and lockdowns became the norm here in Australia, Peter Knight and I were talking about what was happening in our respective states.I was thinking about the situation in Indonesia, just to the north, as my friends in the region talked about it.So I thought I'd reach out to Rully and Wukir in Senyawa and hear firsthand what's going on with them and their community.And after a long time, it's a good time to start a project that will break the geographic isolation and provide opportunities for Senyawa's community of instrument makers who are friends of Senyawa, who have been greatly affected by the pandemic. So we made the same decision.A few weeks after this exchange, Wukir sent me a series of videos taken with his cell phone.It was footage of plastic molds, smoke, spray paint, sounds, and more.Each video showed an instrument being conceived, tested and forged.These are new instruments brought to life before our eyes and ears.These instruments and the audio possibilities they suggest are at the heart of this work.After a few more iterations, we started passing recordings to each other.In this way, while exchanging materials, the form of the work that can be heard on this album was completed.Now that I had all the materials, I decided to forge them.When I first listened to it, every performance had a deep impact, and I felt like I was about to burst out.This is probably the result of people almost shutting themselves out in order to break the loop of their daily lives.Kazuto Sengoku's approach to sounds, unfamiliar sounds, and unexpected sounds will surprise everyone.It was as if I surrendered myself to the sound and applied myself to the peculiarities of the new instrument.What you can hear on this album is the result of efforts to expand the range of listening.It's an album that enables a kind of "cuddling" act.It is the result of the minds of many people being applied to the same collective action. ...

This CD was released by Swiss experimental musician Zimoun in May 2022 on Australian experimental label Room5.Includes a booklet with dialogues and photos with label owner Lawrence English.Below is a commentary by the writer.In this "Guitar Studies" series, we have only dealt with the sounds and noises produced by the guitar.There is an orthodox way to play the guitar by hand, but it was more often driven by a smaller DC motor.I used various microphones for recording, loose pickup contact, and various amplifiers.From small toy amps that are partially flawed to beautiful Magnatone amps with analog tremolos from the 40s to old Fender amps that I first bought with my guitar when I was 60 years old.In addition, the recorded sound was played back in various environments, such as in a cardboard box or in a room of a different size, and re-recorded.By doing so, I was able to give the sound a natural sound and spatiality.I also sent the guitar signal to a bare speaker membrane placed on the table, and put sand on the membrane to create a distorted sound.The friction between the membrane and the sand creates various forms of distortion.I tried various iterative processes to see how to transform the guitar.No loops are used in any of the works.For each layer of each piece, I recorded everything I was looking for for about an hour.In this way, I put together countless sounds of time.With almost endless overlays and long recording times, I tried to achieve some sort of vibrancy.It's not exactly the same, but it doesn't go anywhere.In that sense, these works also have a strong sculptural element.After this process, I started working on the microstructure of the recording.For example, I recorded some songs while slowly shifting the equalizer.We also played them live using various controllers and analog equalizers.This approach has allowed individual frequencies to increase their presence and mix with other frequencies over time.Figuratively speaking, this is similar to using a lamp (or various lamps) to illuminate a sculpture from different angles or create gradual changes in light that affect the perception of the sculpture.Also, on different sound stages, this can cause even more psychoacoustic phenomena.Through these methods, I sought to create complexity in the subtle structure of sound and its evolution.Click here to see more Room10 releases available at Tobira. ----------------------------...

This cassette was released by Italian drone writer Alberto Boccardi in June 2022 on the label Room 6, which is presided over by the acoustic writer Lawrence English in Brisbane, Australia.Includes 40 modular minimal drone songs. DL code included.The following is a commentary by the writer himself. Petra is a work derived from the time I lived in Cairo, Egypt from 5 to 2015.I spent about five years there in the enthusiastic mood of the tireless Egyptian capital.It's a never-ending cascade of sounds and flashes, and I find myself split between my daily work habits and this sense of life around me. Petra is a work since I returned to my hometown of Milan.In a way, this album is like closing a chapter in my life and opening a new one.All sound sources were recorded in the studio "Standard" that I made 2020 years ago.This was a place I'm familiar with, everything was available, and in contrast to Cairo, it was a very familiar and controllable environment.It's like the perfect opposite, a way to look at the memories of these sounds from almost a distance.To get started with the setup, I decided to subtract and think about the concept of "silence," which wasn't part of my life during my stay in Cairo.I was trying to find the width between each sound element and the space they needed.I focused on the sound itself rather than where it was needed in relation to other sounds.During the recording, I invited a longtime collaborator, Chinzia de Lorenzi, to the studio to work with me.She has a great talent for voice, which was put to good use in some of her works.We quickly understood her creative dynamism and were convinced that her voice could fit between the emerging sounds.I thought that the existence of voice would be useful for playing as a listener how to experience the sense of distance of each track.It helped to provide an approach to create and fill the voids that exist around all other sounds. Petra means rock in Latin, and through the subtraction approach I took, I felt that this word was a good reflection of what my unstable and delicate work should be.Click here to see more Room5 releases available at Tobira ....

American influential experimental musician Phill Niblock is a reissue released in June 2022 from Brisbane, Australia's experimental label Room6 (originally released in 40).Below is a description of the label. Ghosts And Others is a singular piece in Phil Niblock's body of work.The work is singular not only in its content, but also in its methodology and approach.This work represents a very concentrated activity in editing, location and sound observation.In many ways, this work is an acoustic reflection of his practice as a filmmaker.The work exposes itself to the world, and in doing so reveals a particular point of view, speaking as much about its maker as it is about its subject.Like all of Niblock's work, this one is a work of perseverance.Certain moments dominate in one part and seemingly vanish in another.Moving back and forth between one place and another and gradually evolving over time suggests movement within boundaries. There's a sense of conflict throughout Ghost And Others.Dynamic percussion explosions to ward off ghosts at a funeral procession in Aberdeen, Hong Kong, characterize the work.Car horns, cows hooting on Soviet-era farms in Hungary, and other sounds blaring among various snippets.Elsewhere, reed instruments try to carve out space for themselves, but the world won't allow it.This is a work that celebrates proximity as well as aural perspective.Transit is also the theme of this work. What's appealing about Ghost And Others is the sense of movement in the work.Trains divide the work, marking points of transition, distraction, and discovery.The train acts almost like a gatekeeper, transporting us into new spaces and suggesting new relationships between sounds as they combine and separate.As a field recording effort, Ghosts And Others is generous, inviting, and most of all, deep.It is a sympathetic perception of places, people and things.Click here for labels and other works /// Click here to...

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.

"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?"

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. ...

British ambient writer Simon Scott (Slowdive drummer) released his latest work in December 2022 on the Australian experimental label Room12.Includes 40 ambient songs that are as soft as the winter sunshine.Shrink specifications.Below is a commentary by the label and writer.The title of the first edition Scott wrote for Room6, 'Long Drove' is about the Fens, a place near home for British composer, multi-instrumentalist and mastering engineer Simon Scott.It's a connecting walkway between two nature reserves called Holmfen and New Decoy, both of which are part of a habitat restoration project called the Great Fen Project, and are close to where Scott grew up as a child.The region first served as a place for Scott's compositional inspiration over a decade ago when he produced 'Below Sea Level' on 40k (later re-released on Touch).Back in the Fens, he produced several new productions, intimate sonic tales of place and rural trauma presented in this Long Drove.The Fens' near future remains a glaring concern, with further subsidence and the threat of flooding.Field recordings are extinguished and unfolded by a melancholic wash of decaying tape loops and digitally processed Fenland sound textures, so that, as a result of climate change, they return to their original wetlands, and once submerged again the fences You can almost hear Scott's thought process about what it might sound like in these five songs. “I regularly visit a remote and unnamed broken bridge over a long drainage ditch connecting Holmfen and the New Decoy Nature Reserve, just to listen. As the seasons change, I return to watch the cries of wildlife merge and coalesce with the sound of long electrical wires strung across wide, flat fences. I sensed the character of the sound and immediately began recording in its vast polyphonic glory, when by chance my water bottle hit an iron bridge and a gong echoed across the fence landscape. Secondly, I decided to use soft mallets to actually play the bridge as a percussive instrument to capture its resonance, then set up a small DPA mic in one of the bridge's vertical openings to simulate the metal bridge. I wanted it to act as a filter for many of the sound waves inside and outside the bridge, and depending on what part of the bridge you hit and what season you hit it, the bridge would have a different vibratory sound quality. Holme Fen Posts are looped recordings taken from one of the two posts of the famous steel Holme Fen Nature Reserve, at England's lowest map position (2 feet above mean sea level). The post was driven into the ground by William Wells, a local landowner, to obtain a subsidence measurement in 10. The post bears the date of the subsequent subsidence. A metal placard was attached to indicate the sound, and Scott sandwiched two contact microphones between horizontal pillars to capture the sound.The sound recorded was the slow, deep sound of the iron sculpture. As well as vibrating sounds, it reveals natural phenomena such as the downpour that occurred when Scott recorded, and the rhythmic dynamics created by the resonance of the surroundings...

Lawrence English, the presiding officer of the Australian experimental label Room40, is a remastered reissue of the work released in record format in 2015.Comes with a 48-page booklet of Antarctic photos and texts from field recordings.Below is a commentary by the writer. In the summer of 2010, I was invited by the Argentine Antarctica Bureau to visit Antarctica.As everyone thinks, it was a life-changing event.Departing from Buenos Aires and heading for the continent of ice, Hercules transport planes regularly stopped at an air force base on the outskirts of Rio Gallegos under the direction of the Argentine army.I intended to wait for a few hours, but an unexpected strong wind blew at the time of landing, and it lasted for several days.It became clear that we could not take off due to a stronger wind than expected.In addition, bad weather along the Antarctic Peninsula exacerbated the situation.The scientists and military personnel who accompanied me were sleeping in the dormitory, but I was dragged into the raging air outside.The Patagonia wind is truly breathtaking.Literally, a strong wind that seems to hold your breath blows. Over the course of three days, I recorded abandoned buildings, a tree folded over a tundra-like meadow, shivering road signs, a crying fence, and anything else that was brought to life by the wind.It wasn't a comfortable experience at all, but I think I was able to capture a variety of sounds.Recordings in Antarctica were made in two snowstorms at Marambio Base and Esperanza Base.During the snowstorm in Marambio, the temperature dropped to -3 degrees Celsius, which made recording particularly difficult.The wind smashed the base's structures and communications equipment, creating disturbing drones and deep low-frequency vibrations that resonated inside the base.The blizzard at Esperanza was milder than that, but the penguins were still covered in snow and were strong enough to squeeze together in the worst case.When you listen back to these recordings, you'll be amazed at the physical strength of the wind.It's rare to feel a physical loss due to the movement of the air, but in Patagonia and Antarctica, I did.A small piece of organic dust in a raging storm.Click here to see more Room2 releases available at Tobira. ---------------------------- Includes insert. ..

American sound artist Pierce Warnecke, who is a lecturer at Berklee College of Music in Barcelona, ​​Spain, will release the latest work from Australian sound label Room2022 in August 8.Below is a commentary by the author himself. Deafened By The Noise Of Time is a speculative attempt at how sound decays and disappears, examining the inevitable entropy and decay of all things over time through four tracks. say.The title is borrowed from Julian Barnes' novel The Noise of Time, a fictional biography of Shostakovich.I first started working on the material for this album for a performance at the Eglise Saint-Méry in Paris in 40.After the concert, I started editing the music, struggling with the work, finding new flaws each time, and not being able to stick to the original compositional ideas.Frustrated, I decided to strip the musical content down to a more voluminous structure and look for other principles and processes to tie everything together.Focusing on rusty, dirty, burnt or broken finds, the camera uses simple lighting and slow movement.I like the idea that these things are both modern and ancient, modern relics of a world that is constantly crumbling.I also like the idea of ​​being able to feel memories of things that have become almost unrecognizable.This pushes the back against the inevitability of impermanence.I love the act of salvaging and reusing discarded objects to shed a new, yet uncertain, light on them.I like to think of this as a sort of ritual transformation of "trash to treasure", the evocation of all of an object's past through imperceptible clues left on its surface.

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.

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 ...

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 ...
