This is a record released by Australian experimental musician James Rushford on the American experimental label Blank Forms in April 2024.

Contains 2022 contemporary songs he created during his stay at an art center on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland in 11.

Below is a commentary 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 2-movement work influenced by composers who studied the late medieval repertoire on the portative organ. Woody melodies intersect with angelic Yamaha CS-10 synth sweeps and stuttering glitches, a work that weaves traces of Klaus Schulz, figurative poetry, and ars subtilior into a precise, ever-evolving tapestry. can be said to be Rashford's starting point.

Drawing from a wide range of collagist and improvisational musical languages, James Rushford's work is singular and has been described as "an electroacoustic experiment with a beating heart" (Boomkat) and "a cursed Jacobean ASMR" (The Wire). It creates a stylistic space. Exploring the folds, cracks and bends of traditions from Early Music to New Age, Rashford's work subtly exaggerates seemingly liminal aspects such as atmosphere and the physical presence of the performers, and how they are influenced by pitch, rhythm, It has come to have the same weight as musical elements such as timbre. In recent years, Rashford's solo work has been guided by a theorization of sonic imagery, particularly shadows, and includes an hour-long accompaniment to Federico Mompou's 1959-67 piano collection Música Callada (2016). and a gorgeous work that transforms the play of light across a flat surface into synthesized sound (The Lake from the Louvers, Shelter Press, 1). His many years of performance for piano, portative organ, synthesizer, and electroacoustic devices include a delicate touch and harmonies that coexist with influences from turn-of-the-century Impressionism, 2021th century avant-garde, and popular music structure, as well as disparate tunings. The senses are always alive. "

"The latest in a prolific string of solo and collaborative releases by James Rushford, Turzets collects a pair of new works primarily created and recorded last year while the Australian composer-performer was in residence at La Becque, an art center on Lake Geneva in Switzerland. The side-length piece “Fallaway Whisk” explores hesitation in its many forms—reticence of speech, sonic restraint—using live, abstracted translations of text from English to German against a lush and swelling soundscape. On the flip side, “Quire” is a work in ten movements influenced by the composer's study of late medieval repertoire on portative organ, weaving the instrument's woodsy interlocking melodies with angelic Yamaha CS-80 synth sweeps and stuttering glitches. The combined effort is somewhat a departure for Rushford, working in traces of Klaus Schulze, concrete poetry, and ars subtilior into a precise and ever-unfolding tapestry.

Rushford's work draws from a wide range of collagist and improvisatory musical languages, staking out an idiosyncratic stylistic space that has been variously described as “electro-acoustic experimentation with a beating heart” (Boomkat) and “haunted Jacobean ASMR” (The Wire). Investigating the creases, cracks, and folds in traditions ranging from early music to New Age, Rushford's work subtly exaggerates seemingly liminal aspects such as atmosphere and the bodily presence of the performer until these take on a weight equal to musical elements such as pitch, rhythm, and timbre In recent years, Rushford's solo work has been guided by his theorization of sonic images, particularly the shadow, which has inspired pieces as diverse as an hour-long companion to Federico Mompou's 1959–67 piano cycle Música Callada (2016) and a sumptuous translation of the play of light across flat surfaces into synthetic sound (The Lake from the Louvers, Shelter Press, 2021). His long-standing performance practice for piano, portative organ, synthesizers, and electroacoustic devices, is constantly infused with a delicacy of touch and a harmonic sensibility in which unorthodox tunings coexist with influences from fin de siècle Impressionism, the twentieth century avant-garde, and popular musical structures. He has worked with a vast range of artists including Klaus Lang, Annea Lockwood, David Behrman, Tashi Wada , Haroon Mirza, Dennis Cooper, Ora Clementi, crys cole, Oren Ambarchi, Kassel Jaeger, Will Guthrie, and Graham Lambkin. He has performed as Golden Fur (with Sam Dunscombe and Judith Hamann) and Food Court (with Joe Talia and Francis Plagne) ). "
