Experiment/field recording label in Berlin, GermanyThis is a cassette released in December 2023 in a limited edition of 12 by Pablo Diserens, the leader of Forms of Minutiae.

This is a sound collage/dronescape work made from field recordings. DL code included.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"forms of minutiae" and TBA21-Academy present a joint happening and aqueous sound piece "upstream ensemble" composed by field recording writer, artist, and f-o-m co-founder Pablo Diserens.

During the 21/2022 Digital Residency, organized by TBA23-Academy's Ocean-Archive.org, pablo diserens will invite members (and external enthusiasts) of the online platform Ocean Comm/uni/ty to venture out into the world and listen to aquatic sounds. We have started a call for people to record their encounters. The purpose of this collective liquid entrainment was to bring together recorded sounds from various wet ecosystems to stimulate listening and field recording gestures for people with and without experience.

Sound recordings from 35 participants are woven into a feature-length sound composition, "upstream ensemble," which moves between the diversity of the water cycle as an acoustic body. The work moves upstream through oceans, rivers, pipe networks, ponds, and glaciers, exploring the constant flow of water and its surroundings. Listeners encounter floating habitats, along with the photosynthetic songs of sea lions, dolphins, blue whales, humpback whales, arctic terns, and algae, as well as the intrusive sounds of submarine sonar, boats, and human infrastructure. In ``upstream ensemble,'' the world's aquatic fauna, flora, geology, and technology blend into synchronized motion that records the sonic sequences of these wetlands.

This project resonates with Pauline Oliveros' deep listening practice and was inspired by Rachel Carson's exploration of the intertidal zone in her book The Edge of the Sea, and engages with the Earth's waters. , contributes to an ever-expanding list of works that propose a focus on listening as a way of being. By sharing practices of listening and attunement, pablo diserens aims to blur the boundaries between species and environments and foster a sense of interconnectedness. Experiencing aquatic biomes, both individually and collectively, serves as a way to rethink our relationship to the world. Although these are mostly solitary experiences, Pablo believes that field recording and listening are communal and environmental practices that form a gateway for global synchronicity and mapping the world in time and space. ing. Listening can thus become a political act that creates emotional bonds with the world and its biological communities. "

"forms of minutiae and TBA21–Academy present "upstream ensemble", a communal happening and aqueous sound piece initiated and composed by field recordist, artist, and f–o–m co-founder Pablo Diserens.

During the 2022/23 digital residency hosted by TBA21–Academy's Ocean-Archive.org, Pablo Diserens launched an open call inviting members of its online platform ocean comm/uni/ty (and external enthusiasts) to venture into the world and record aqueous sonic encounters. The aim of this collective liquid attuning was to gather sound recordings from various wet ecologies while stimulating listening and field recording gestures regardless of any previous experience.

Recordings from 35 contributors were woven into the long-form sound composition "upstream ensemble" which navigates between the multiplicity of the water cycle as a sounding body. The work moves upstream through oceans, rivers, pipe networks, ponds, and glaciers while investigating the continuous flow of water and the environments that surround it. Listeners encounter drifting habitats trickling with the songs of sea lions, dolphins, blue whales, humpback whales, Arctic terns, and algae photosynthesis – as well as with the invasive hums of submarines’ sonars, boats, and human infrastructures. With “upstream ensemble” some of the world’s aqueous fauna, flora, geologies, and technologies mingle into a synchronized motion that documents the sonic articulations of these wet zones.

In resonance with Pauline Oliveros' Deep Listening practice and inspired by Rachel Carson's exploration of the intertidal zone in her book "The Edge of the Sea", this project contributes to an ever-expanding list of works that propose a focus on listening as a way of engaging and existing with the planet's waters. By stimulating shared listening and attuning practices, Pablo Diserens aims to develop a sense of interconnectedness by blurring the boundaries between species as well as environments. Experiencing aqueous biomes both individually and collectively acts as a way of rethinking our relationships with the world. Despite these being mostly solitary experiences, Pablo believes that field recording and listening are communal and environmental practices that form gateways for earthly synchronicity and world mapping in time and space. Thus listening in turn can become a political act that sparks emotional bonds with the world and its biotic communities."
