Jessica Curry – Fields Were the Essence (Deluxe)
Available only in a limited fine art edition of 80 copies. Each of these pastoral beauties comes housed in a vintage 3.5” film can. Included in the can is an artified, 3″ mini CD hubbed to the inside of the lid, a set of 4 round hi-res photographic prints of Jessica’s walking locale, copies of her original score for the piece, twigs gathered on her walks, and a mini textual scroll, all nestled on a bed of moss. Each can itself is hand stamped on the outside, covered with photo and credit info, and verbiage hand typed on an antique typewriter. Befitting the music to the extreme!
Omniiq has been composing sounds for over three decades. From the more conventional classical training in the early years to the freedom of sonic experimentation now, the common thread is a passion for creating. Accidental composition. Chance ambiences. (Un)fortunate soundscapes. Ordinary sounds manipulated beyond recognition. Aural abuse. The journey is all important, the destination will look after itself.
Pascal Savy returns with further deconstructions and the application of fairly mind bending physics and philosophies to composition (rhizome, phase differentiation and deterritorialization) – namely the use of erosion, decay, control (or lack of), connectivity & heterogeneity, tonal mutations and cross pollination to allow his works to organically grow with lives of their own.
The four tracks within are really rather lovely representations and interpretations of this processing style which include a kit and source list of: A couple of piano samples recorded in a disused Norfolk windmill (hang on… a piano…in a windmill?) plucked and bowed guitar, processed sine waves, FM synth, a self-oscillating analogue filter, a turntable, monome and handheld recorder with found sounds from a French church and Kew Gardens….nice!
These tracks are a travelogue mapping paths taken in Europe during the past year or so. Snapshots, based on improvisations drawing inspiration from the quieter moments of a nomadic life: a snowstorm in Helsinki, a hot September night in Berlin and a dusk in the Swiss countryside outside of Lucerne.
