Nervure Magnétique's two mountainous tracks shock by bleeding unpredictably out of audible range at both ends. Because track two for example, does not present expected musical progressions beginning with methodical test pattern format in which basic analogue-sounding tones of varying duration and texture are laid down in guileless succession at a drastically low volume leaving you vulnerable to the sonic assault at 12-odd minutes, you are never sure where to set your listening parameters. You must either except the loss of the shadow or highlight detail or excavate from these extremities with the volume control. read more
A stunning work from Australian intermedia artist Joyce Hinterding, Spectral is based on celestial site recordings of magnetic fields and weather satellites made with custom-built antennae. These phenomena were recorded in the isolated wilderness of Bruny Island, Tasmania, and later appeared as the sound element in The Levitation Grounds, an audio/video installation with artist David Haines. The result is a complex universe of mysterious interference, ghostly transmissions from unfathomable places, disembodied static, and failed communication. What is manipulated sound and what is straight sound remains unknown - this is musique concrete of the spheres. read more
