Sound Room XXXIV: Recording

 
Here is a recording from Friday’s gig at Sound Room XXXIV, Third Space, Helsinki. The first half contains “on the hoof” reworkings of tracks from my album Echoic, while the second half is taken up with a twenty minute performance for mono reel-to-reel tape machine, two particularly mangled tape loops and phrase sampler. Enjoy!

Setlist:

01. There
02. Bark
03. Sea
04. Absent
05. Sketch for Reel-to-Reel Tape Machine, Tape Loops and Phrase Sampler

Many thanks to Ana Gutieszca and Sébastien Piquemal.

Piece composed for the eighth edition of Gwaith Sŵn’s Sonic Darts radio show, first broadcast on 1 February 2016 on Resonance104.4fm. The theme for the show was “ambience”.

Here is what I put in my email to the rest of Gwaith Sŵn:
