Earworm. Met muziek van Sarah Davachi, King Gong, Lea Bertucci, Miguelangel Clerc, Sohrab Motabar, Puce Mary and Horse Lords.
In deze uitzending drijven we met Sarah Davachi naar een re-compositie van sound-scapes uit zuid-oost Azië door King Gong. Sound-scapes vinden we ook in Lea Bertucci’s stuk Earworm.
In Miguelangel Clerc horen we percussie van keukengerei voordat Sohrab Motabar ons in een wereld vol synthetischer geluiden brengt. Het volgende stuk van Puce Mary wacht met een donkere, energetisch spectrum. Na een korte interventie van de eigenlijk analoge band Horse Lords, gaan we met Sarah Davachi weer terug naar harmonische gebieden.
Sarah Davachi (b. 1987, Calgary, Canada) holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the University of Calgary, and a master’s degree in electronic music and recording media from Mills College in Oakland, California where she studied with Maggi Payne, James Fei, and David Bernstein. As a composer and performer of electroacoustic music, Davachi’s projects are primarily concerned with disclosing the delicate psychoacoustics of intimate aural spaces, utilizing extended durations and simple harmonic structures that emphasize subtle variations in overtone complexity, temperament and intonation, and natural resonances. The instrumentation she employs is varied, including analog synthesizers, piano, electric organ, pipe and reed organ, voice, tape-replay samplers, orchestral strings, and woodwinds, with mutual idioms often layered in textural and timbral counterpoint. Similarly informed by minimalist tenets of the 1960s and 1970s, baroque leanings toward slow-moving chordal suspensions, and experimental production practices of the studio environment, in her sound is manifest an experience that lessens apprehension of consonance and dissonance in likeness of the familiar and the distant. http://www.sarahdavachi.com/
Under the name KINK GONG you find 2 activities, the 1st one is to record ethnic minority music mostly in south-east Asia, the 2nd is to transform, collage, recompose the original recordings into experimental soundscapes. http://kinkgong.net
Lea Bertucci is a composer, performer and sound designer whose work describes relationships between acoustic phenomena and biological resonance. In addition to her instrumental practice with woodwind instruments, she often incorporates multi-channel speaker arrays, electroacoustic feedback, extended instrumental technique and tape collage. In recent years, her projects have expended toward site-responsive and site-specific sonic investigations of architecture. Deeply experimental, her work is unafraid to subvert musical expectation. http://lea-bertucci.com/
Miguelangel Clerc Parada (Santiago, Chile, 1979) has composed pieces for soloists, music ensembles, for installations and dance performances for venues from Europe, Asia, North and South America. He has composed music for the Nieuw Ensemble, Ensemble Klang, Ensemble Modelo62 (The Netherlands), CIMA (Chile), Schlagquartett Koln (Germany), among others. He also has composed music for dance and live art performances for choreographers as Pedro Goucha, Cora Bos-Kroese, Marina Mascarell, Karine Guizzo, Heidi Vierthaler, Loïc Perela, Astrid Boons and for the performance group mmmmm (UK). v www.mclerc.com
Sohrab Motabar (1984) is a composer from Tehran, who was grew up listening to a wide range of music — from Jazz to Metal and from Classical to Noise. His own music however unfolds in labyrinth-like structures characterized by what refers to as states of suspension and dazzled-motion. He achieves this by composing with algorithms, chaotic functions, and non-standard synthesized sounds which challenge traditional ways of perceiving and listening to music. In 2018, Motabar finished his Master’s in Music at the Institute of Sonology, and since then he has continued to collaborate in projects with other artists. https://sohrab.org/
Puce Mary is the solo moniker of Danish experimental artist Frederikke Hoffmeier.
The output is rooted in industrial- noise, sound collage, power electronics and concrete music, with a vast amount of releases – first and foremost on the Copenhagen based label Posh Isolation. http://thequietus.com/articles/17213-puce-mary-interview
