Label: No Label
レーベルFlaming Pinesを主宰し多くの音楽家の作品をリリース、現在はロンドンに活動拠点を移した当店人気の女性サウンドアーティストKate Carr。なんと地元のギャラリーの力を借り自主出版で制作したLP作品が登場！！ダイレクトな環境音、パキパキに硬質な鋭利な音響、持続音、沸々と泡立つサウンドスケープ、リスナーは霧の中を漂流するとの表現通り、暗く謎めいたような夢が延々続くかなりの高内容。音の質感も以前より洗練された印象です。レッドヴァイナル仕様、クールなデザインのPVCスリーヴ入り。大推薦。
Splinters as a composition has a dream like quality, dark and enigmatic. Electronic noise colours the drone and bubbling soundscapes of a somewhere. Repeating musical phrases mix with recognisable sounds from life - a spoken utterance, a rumbling train. As a listener you drift with the current through misty scenes, on a journey down a river towards some marshland on the edge of an urban sprawl.
Made in response to an invitation from TACO! - an artist space in Thamesmead in South East London - Splinters documents Kate Carr’s relationship with that space, and the area of London it is located in. Over an 18 month period Kate kept a growing sonic diary of her journeys to the space from her home, her construction of work in the gallery, her wanderings around the green spaces and urban architecture, the coming and goings of visitors and the artistic material from other artists and musicians working at the space. This work is a sonic portrait of a time and a place, and the actions and events within it.
Splinters includes audio samples from concerts and exhibitions held at TACO! Featuring material from live sets by Liz Helman, Tom White, Rebecca Lennon, Pouya Ehsaei, Jonathan Higgins and Hannah Dargavel-Leafe, and audio material from the exhibitions Scratch! by George Barber, and Heavy View by Laura Yuile.
