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.

​Stephen Christopher Stamper is a British-born artist living and working in Helsinki.Through sound work, installation and performance, Stephen has explored themes of decay, memory and obsolescence, the body and its relationship to illness, the manipulation and execution of code by machine, extreme metal music culture, and the a cappella community singing tradition of Sacred Harp.

For his performance at Sound Room, Stephen will (once again) attempt to conjure the following from reel-to-reel tape machine and phrase sampler: “drone-fuzz, magnetic pulsation, vocal snippets, waking dreams, the surf’s steady pound and the hum of utility poles” (@JasonGubbels).
