This is a record released by Argentina's famous experimental musician (86 years old) Beatriz Ferreyra on the Australian experimental label room2023 in November 11.Contains 40 noise collage ~ drone songs. DL code included.Below is an explanation by label owner Lawrence English. "I'm not sure when I first heard Beatriz Ferreyra's music. I think it was in the early to mid-4s, when I was working with the curatorial team at Liquid Architecture. Given the focus of the festival, GRM and musique concrète were more common and received a lot of attention. It is only in the last decade that deaf people have come into sharp focus. In 2000, I had the great pleasure of meeting Beatriz Ferreyra in Braga. During the Novas Frequencies festival, I was also able to spend time with her in Rio.Through these encounters, I learned about the amazing focus, generosity, and generosity that Beatriz Ferreyra has maintained throughout her sonic life. Beatriz Ferreyra is one of the few female concrete composers who have been active from the latter half of the 10th century to today.Her works, which she continues to actively research, are , complex yet elegantly simple. Beatriz Ferreyra's work often focuses on a single object, using tape and other forms of manipulation to radically reconfigure her chosen sonic materials. and opens outward.``UFO Forest...''

This is a collaborative record released by Australian experimental musician Eugene Carchesio and British percussionist Adam Betts on the Australian experimental label room2023 in November 11.Contains 40 minimal strange beats focusing on pulse and rhythm. DL code included.Below is an explanation by label owner Lawrence English. "Sometimes an idea presents itself in a way that no one would expect. This recording by Australia's Eugene Carchesio and England's Adam Betts is one such unexpected presentation. A few years ago, Eugene gave me a collection of recordings from the orbit of his now-legendary Circle Music series, which, in typical Eugene fashion, are intensely rhythmic, rooted in a deep and abiding sense of minimalism. Eugene has a way of creating little universes out of very little material. But he wanted to mix it up and add something unexpected to the piece, so he added drums. At about the same moment I was reminded of the great work of Adam Betts, whom I have been fortunate enough to have known for over a decade now. We first met at Bad Bonne and then later at Square in Tbilisi. Played with Pusher. Adam came to my attention, not in any way related to his music, but because he competed in a Welsh toss competition and did well. I looked and thought Eugene was the perfect candidate to work with me on this project. To my delight, he agreed. The result is a combination of restrained energy and rhythmic ferocity. A fusion of two great musical spirits with a certain sense, this is a parallel reading of how minimal movement can create huge waves of energy. It is also a record of careful and generous exploration.It is not every day that music is born from such a mysterious trajectory of thoughts, but when it does happen it is worthy of celebration. I'm very happy to share this edition with you." Click here for more from the label /// Click here to...

Hand To Earth, an independent band from Arnhem Land, Australia, led by Daniel Wilfred and David Wilfred, released this CD on the country's experimental label room2023 in November 11.Contains three ambient songs using traditional Australian indigenous instruments such as the didgeridoo and Burmese.Below are explanations by band members. "The process of making music together on Hand To Earth is unlike anything we've ever experienced. It's not free improvisation, but it's not composition either. It's something in between, and it feels like weaving. Through Hand To Earth, we weave together the threads of different histories, different lives, and different perspectives to become a family.Daniel weaves manikai (folk songs) from his native Wagilak into the syntax of our shared customs.He talks about ``raki,'' a string used to make daily bags carried by mokui (spirits) depicted in many of the paintings of artists such as Jambu Bura Bura and Wally Wilfred.Rakhi exists in the world that we can touch, but it is also a metaphysical thread that draws us to a ``bul_40bul'' (a ritual or gathering place).When we play music, Rakhi draws us all together.Both Yoruru and Balander, we are connected by this invisible thread, and under its guidance we gather, sing, play, dance, and listen.Daniel is ``Wata...

This is a CD released by Australian artist/experimental musician Amby Downs on the Australian experimental label room2023 in November 11.Contains two low-end drone songs with no melody.Below is an explanation by the label. ``Amby Downs' work occupies a deeply personal and unique space in the Australian music scene.This project is as much about trauma as it is about aspirations and hopes.It is a work that recognizes the complexity of intergenerational interactions, emotionally, socially, politically, and culturally.For the past half-century, Thalia has sought to trace untold and sometimes deeply divided histories, tracing lineages badly worn by the strains of colonial invasion and obfuscation.She is a collector, researcher, and surgeon who stitches together these pieces of connective tissue. Ngunmal and I Am Holding My Breath are two full-length works that exist both as sound works and audiovisual installations.This is a work that operates in the physical realm.It contains the low frequency energy of breathing, sighing, and longing.Her works feel both contraction and expansion at the same time, and have a texture that draws you in deeply.This depth is felt as pressure.Even a small crack, a small murmur, can be torn open to reveal a whole cave of sound. Amby Downs, and Palmer's practice more broadly, asks us to make ourselves available.We are required to be vulnerable to unknown places and situations, uncertainty, and instability.In doing so, it gives us the opportunity to experience this wild, intense, provocative, and ultimately beautiful work.

Tokyo folk duo Tenniscoats is a reissued CD released in September 2023 from the Australian experimental label room9. (Original was released in 40) Contains 2007 folk-ambient folk songs recorded during the Australian tour.Eco wallet, shrink specification.Below is an explanation by label owner Lawrence English. " Sometime in the early '12s, John Chantler, who was living in Japan at the time, sent me a mysterious recording he had just recorded with a musician he met in Tokyo, Tenniscoats. It was my first encounter with Saya and Ueno, the source of their sonic inspiration.In 00, Tenniscoats toured Australia through connections with Guy Blackman of Melbourne, Fortitude Valley. Their show, held at the Ricks Cafe in London, was a turmoil of song, improvisation and melody freedom.After the show, Saya, Ueno and drummer Kishida spent a few more days in Brisbane, during which time they performed Totemoai. Much of Mashou was recorded in. The recording itself took place in a repurposed office building where my friend Heinz Riegler set up a small recording space, with various offices as somewhat isolated recording zones. The results are surprisingly rich, and I think that's a credit to the design of my office room.For this special 2005th anniversary edition, I took the time to review and remaster the recordings. This version is probably a little more faithful to the dynamics of the sessions at the time.I also spent several days poring over archival material that wasn't included in the original Totemoai Masho sessions. To my surprise, I found some demo versions of Cacoy, one of my favorite songs on the record, as well as variations on other album songs and some experimental songs that didn't make it onto the record. There's a kind of sunny joy in this music. There's a sense of curiosity, porosity, and generosity in this record. It's this collaboration and the creation of "Totemoaimasho." It is a mixed methodology that has influenced that.I would like to express my gratitude to John.Without John, this project and many of the connections that followed would not have happened.

"Dissociation is the driving force behind this work. An act of surrender, an attempt to observe our existence from the outside. Surrender feels like giving up. Acceptance feels like giving up. The process involves experimenting with digital sound through observation and attention to detail, and the idea of ​​making sounds appear different to different listeners. This attention to detail acts as a hologram that changes shape depending on the angle. The idea of ​​multidimensional existence and indifference in its purest form. Slow digital evaporation.

Yann Novak, an ambient artist from Los Angeles, USA, released this CD in May 2023 from the experimental label Room5 in Brisbane, Australia.Contains 40 songs from ambient drone to ambient techno.Below is a commentary by the author himself. "The legend of Theseus in Greek mythology describes how the founder king of ancient Athens rescued the city's children from the Minotaur of King Minos on the island of Crete. In commemoration of this, the Athenians sailed Theseus' ship from Athens to Delos and began a pilgrimage in honor of his victory. Within this tradition, a philosophical paradox regarding historical ships was raised: ships were repaired piece by piece and no longer had original parts. At what point did the ship no longer see itself as the same entity?In recent years, I have been interested in exploring the perceptual differences I experience.Perceptual differences such as partial color blindness and dyslexia have been with me in my life, but tinnitus due to deafness is a relatively new shift in the way I experience the world.Such sensory challenges have shaped my artistic practice.What I call perceptual anxiety: It creates anxiety about how accurately I discern the world around me.The Voice of Theseus is an attempt to explore the obstacles I face in processing external sensory information.If I have trouble perceiving reds and greens,if I have trouble hearing certain frequencies,if I don't interpret written language in a standard way,how faithfully can I experience reality in the way that other people experience it?This album invites the listener to ask himself: "The Voice of Theseus" enlisted two of my favorite vocalists in this experiment.Dorian Wood and G. Brenner recorded vocals for me to manipulate throughout the album.If their original voice was the ship of Theseus, the changes I make to their voice would be like the Athenians swapping out parts of the original ship.And the vocalist. How far can these vocals be pushed while retaining their identity?Where is the gap between the source material and what is made of it?The myth of Theseus' ship has played with the nuances of how reality can be observed, interpreted and altered in an infinite number of ways.But my internal circumstances leave me with a perceptual unease.Inaccuracy haunts me as much as the flexible nature of an object or moment.There is no real way of knowing how far apart my observation experience is from that of others, nor is there a clear limit to how many fragments of our shared reality can change before they cease to exist.

Iranian experimental musician Siavash Amini released a CD in July 2023 from the experimental label Room7 in Brisbane, Australia.Includes 40 minimal drone songs that explore the Middle Eastern maqam theory.Below is a commentary by the author himself. "I'm crazy about Safi -Al -Al -Din Urmavie's tuning, rhythm, and macaman theory. It began in the last year of high school, but at that time there were many discussions about his 3 music scientists, and whether it was useful or relevant to Iranian music at the time. I was thinking more about such discussions and tuning in the 17th century in the 13th century, but I didn't know how to approach these tunes, but while I was making "A Trail of Laughters", I started grabbing that feeling. I judged that it could not be explored by conventional instruments and composition techniques. I do not want to approach a historical approach. I want to borrow my own approach from experimental music and electronic music of the same era. I want to find my own approach. The illusion, the image that appears and disappears, and the next moment, I do not know what it disappears. , Specific settings are required to experience. Like Redon's drawing, you can see and feel it in an undecided space.

Free-folk duo Primitive Motion from Brisbane, Australia released this record in March 2023 on the country's experimental/ambient label Room3.Contains 40 experimental ambient folk songs using a large number of instruments without using spatial effects such as delay and reverb. Comes with DL code.Below is an explanation by the author. Portrait of an Atmosphere was recorded with the intention of creating a long piece of component parts as a suite of related compositions that are heard as a single narrative.Without the typical palette of reverbs and delays, we focus on sonic elements to achieve the sonic immersion that is at the heart of what we do.Despite the lack of such tools, it is fruitful for us to be able to enter the realm of illusions and get a sense of something 'other'.This album is the least Primitive Motion-like and most Primitive Motion-like album ever.The title of the album is taken from Sandra's Cut Poems, an ongoing series of works in which she shrinks/cuts text from picked-up book pages to reach a poetic conclusion.In this context, it seems fitting that some of the recordings on this album also feel cropped, albeit more like collages than reductions.The most obvious is Portrait IV, a piano track with snippets of studio improvisation, until the fog lifts with a replay of the one-string guitar motif from Portrait I.Click here for labels and other works /// Click here to see more...

"Atmospheres and Disturbances" documents the changes in highland ecosystems caused by rising global temperatures.This work is based on fieldwork done at the High Altitude Research Station in Jungfraujoch, Switzerland. Over the course of four weeks, I placed various recording devices around the station and in the surrounding alpine environment to record natural, man-made, and geophysical forces.This project offers a new encounter with the endangered alpine environment and enhances our perception and engagement with the concepts of place, community and environmental dissonance.Fieldwork used a variety of microphones to record different acoustic, spatial, atmospheric, and vibration-based phenomena.Omnidirectional microphones recorded wind, snow, ice, and social, material, and industrial sounds emanating from nearby train terminans and observatories.Hydrophones were also placed in water and ice to record the physical sounds that resonate in the frozen environment of the Jungfraujoch and adjacent glaciers.Man-made sounds produced by tourists, transportation, and recreational sports are documented as permeating the entire landscape.Accelerometers are attached to various surfaces and structures to record solid vibrations caused by high velocity winds and melting and freezing processes.Accelerometer recordings provide a clear representation of stress and fatigue occurring within the material structure of buildings and infrastructure. "Atmospheres and Disturbances" is designed to allow the audience to experience the endangered alpine ecosystem by immersing themselves in an extreme environment.See more Room5 releases /// Click here to see more Room4 releases...

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...

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...

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 ....

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.

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. ...

David is a vegan, so I remember leaving the kitchen to him, who is good at cooking, and it was a great dinner. At that time, I've been worried since I was a kid. I talked about it. I had been taken by my mother to visit the town's cottage, but when the uncle saw me at the age of 2013, he said, "You will die in the summer of 11!" It was. "That's very worrisome," said David, "Akio, this is the Southern Hemisphere, and it's winter now, so it's already gone."Listening to this sound revives the refreshing days. -Akio Suzuki David Toop -...

This CD will be released by Australian ambient artist JWPATON on the Australian experimental label room2023 in December 12.Contains 40 Lo-Fi ambient drone songs using tape and synth.Below is an explanation by the author himself. "Anyone who knows me knows my obsession with the 5 film The Thief. The opening scene depicts a cold, methodical diamond heist set in neon light, set to a Tangerine Dream soundtrack. Contrast this with a thief who shares a danish with a stranger fishing in the endless ocean at dawn. Robbery is technical and calculating. Fishing is down-to-earth and old-fashioned. I'm sure I'm unfairly projecting my own personal experiences onto this movie. As time goes on, I can see the lines between these two scenes becoming more and more blurred. I see the contrasts between day and day, city and sea, drill and rod less as binary oppositions and more as a fusion of worlds slowly collapsing into each other. Ideas I've been coming back to for years surfaced: technology and its place in the natural world; how labor and technology shape identity; how my ancestors were in many ways more advanced than our current society; sort of The ancient futurism of the label. /// Click here to see more Room1981 releases available at Tobira. ------------------------- ---...

A cassette released by the Tokyo folk duo Tenniscoats on the Australian experimental label room2023 in September 9. This is a live recording in Tasmania, Australia in February 40. *If you would like a digital sound source, please feel free to contact us. The following is an explanation by label owner Lawrence English. In preparation for the 2009th anniversary reissue of Totemo Aimasho, I spent several days digging deep into the room2 archives.There is a huge amount of material collected over the years, but the truth is, I don't remember much of it exactly.Meanwhile, I came across this recording. Tasmania Bootleg was recorded on Sunday 15 February 40 at the Brisbane Hotel in Hobart.My last visit to Hobart was fairly recent, and my email chain from that time speaks for itself.I invited Tenniscoats to Australia to celebrate the finale of Fablique Shear, which I was curating at Brisbane Powerhouse.Once other tour dates were announced, some people from Hobart contacted us and before we knew it we were on our way to Hobart.As part of our visit to Hobart, we recorded a series of audio sources in the same 'field recording' style that we had used to create Temporacha in Tokyo the previous year.I also had the opportunity to record a show at a Brisbane hotel.This recording is 2009% bootleg territory.To be honest, I'm a big fan of this recording style.I was a big cassette trader when I was a teenager, and the quality of the cloned bootlegs I was listening to at the time got me interested in texture and noise.This recording was made in the audience by a friendly local and perfectly captures the atmosphere surrounding Tenniscoats at this time.You can literally see that the audience is completely captivated by Saya and Ueno's performance.It was an honor to play with them on this show.I haven't talked much about it, but I started my musical career as a drummer.Also included in this edition is a digital phone book containing photographs taken in Tasmania.

Annea Lockwood, an experimental musician from New Zealand and living in the UK, Professor Emeritus of Vassar University, released a reissue CD in September 2023 from the Australian experimental label room9. (Original was released in 40) As the title suggests, 1970 noises focusing on the sound of glass are recorded.Comes with a book containing her interviews, unpublished materials, and photos.Below is a commentary by label owner Lawrence English. "It is difficult, if not impossible, to attempt to summarize Annea Lockwood's life journey as a composer and performer. For six decades, she has explored many different musical movements and approaches. Having carved out a diverse and fluid existence, her life is guided by intuition, curiosity and listening, where passion comes first and is full of surprises. The most important thing is probably "listening".It is a practice she has sought to develop with unwavering devotion throughout her life, and a practice that has supported her as an absolute being.This Glass World documents some of her first significant research on sound, objects and hearing.This recording captures the moment when I was deeply fascinated by the familiar material of glass.This recording celebrates many things, but it's Lockwood's willingness to let one note resonate perfectly that stands out.In each of the 23 vignettes presented here, Lockwood invites us to join her in the materiality of sound. Glass World is almost fanatical.The record radiates a vibratory intensity that remains as strong today as it did when it was released on Tangente Records in 60.I had the privilege of remastering these recordings under Annea's guidance.Alongside this project, Annea and I had a lengthy conversation.This conversation expands from Annea's work on Glass World and deliberately seeks to explore her interests and passions, and in doing so has guided her way of being and making. I'm trying to clarify my point of view.I am honored to share this edition with you.I hope you too will catch Annea's resonant curiosity and be as fascinated by these sounds as I (and many others) have been.
