Limited edition of 100 that comes in a numbered handmade sleeve, with an insert containing a personal message from Chisman introducing the EP…
Flaming Pines’s first release for 2012 is a magical new EP by Seth Chrisman called ”Aetherdrift,, Do You Copy”.
Chrisman hails from New Mexico in the USA, but drew heavily on sonic material gathered on a trip to Costa Rica to produce this memorable EP.
Stumbling around after dark armed with a tape recorder and a radio, Chrisman said he returned home inspired by the ”lovely cacophony” produced by the mixture of natural sounds and fragmented AM radio transmisions.
”Aetherdrift” delicately and powerfully conveys both the euphoria and disorientation of travel — the sense of drift and near disembodiment experienced by every traveller as they arrive as a disconnected outsider to a new country.
It is a subtle and sophisticated work which, with its emphasis on geography, travel and connections, is a terrific fit with the preoccupations of the Flaming Pines label, and we are very proud to be associated with it.
‘Quiet, Please’ is an 80mm CDr release, documenting the degeneration of society’s sonic landscape through location recordings, tape-loops and double bass…
”Quiet, Please deals with the issue of ‘noise’ as a polluting yet ultimately unavoidable element in an acoustic space, through the medium of lo-fi location recording and magnetic tape deterioration. Inspired by R. Murray Schafer’s The Tuning of the World (1977), the composition draws upon the concept of an ever-degrading sonic environment caused by humanity’s technological development. The affliction of noise pollution is something which, in all likelihood, cannot be avoided if society is to continue to progress – noise is therefore inevitable. For Quiet, Please the location setting of a library was chosen for its cultural significance in the issue of noise control. Firstly, the concept of education and learning ties in with the topics surrounding human progress: the process of formal education is fundamental to the technical and social advancements causing this shift from high to low-fidelity soundscape. Secondly, in the case of the recordings made in this piece, the library seems to act as an example of the impossibility of complete noise eradication. The library – which is generally accepted as a quiet place of study – in fact, contains a great deal of noise pollution, which is then amplified by the cultural expectation of ‘silence’…” ~ Ithaca Trio, 2011
Packaged in a library returns card, this release is limited to 75 copies for the world.
These six tracks were recorded during a week of seclusion in a house deep in the woods of Northern Ontario with portions recorded in a cabin in the Gatineau region of Quebec. The recordings include various sample sources including goats and birds in Switzerland, a choir featuring Kuepfer’s parents, and wolves from the Aspden Valley Wildlife Sanctuary near Rousseau, Ontario.
