Thursday, 1 May, Natasha Displaced : Replaced - Fog - Isostasie Barrett's structural precision gives her pieces a strong sense of narrative as well as place. Tiny sonic fictions unravel throughout; footsteps recede over glassy, gong like tones. A door is opened, a cat enters, draws near, purrs and eats from a bowl seemingly placed in your left ear.
You're dragged through dense undergrowth packed with insects, or sat in a dripping cave listening to distant machines devouring the landscape. But most Displaced : Replaced - Fog all it's her control of timbre that catches the ear again and again.

A jump across the Northern Sea and we set foot on English ground. Birmingham has become an important creative node in electroacoustic music, thanks to the work of composer Jonty Harrsison and his Birmingham ElectroAcoustic Sound Theatre better known as BEASTa laboratory for experimentation and sound diffusion that has helped many talented composers in developing their art. His precise sound constructions and his distinctive way of compressing sound matter into streams of energy put him up there with Pierre HenryFrancis Dhomont and Bernard Bernard Parmegiani.
Sievefrom the album Tracesuses a catchy Displaced : Replaced - Fog to make this transformative process transparent. His contributions to the acousmatic corpus and to the development of sound diffusion Light Wind - Natasha Barrett - Isostasie him not only the contemporary but in a sense the acolyte of Harrison. Furthermore, the two composers share a similar interest in form and in the choreographed displacement of abstract sound objects through space and time.
Time, Motion and Memory is a choice cut. There, she has stepped away from the style of her teachers and has sought inspiration in the Nordic cold. Her Three Fictionsreleased on Isostasiedeserve many listens. Noch ein wenig abstrakter kommt das Album des belgischen Komponisten Stephan Dunkelman daher. Actually, every composer seems to have their own unique approach towards field recordings. A student of the aforementioned Jonty HarrisonDisplaced : Replaced - Fog Barrett conceives beautiful landscapes of sounds with very discreet field recordings, that retain an aesthetic likeness to the acousmatic tradition.
Many young composers settle into this landscape of sound… and their work is of such interest to us, it would be a shame not to let them be heard.
We shall first mention the California-based V. Finally, because of its numerous ideas and its incredible pacing, the surprising flume ridge.
Two small treats to end with. First, the pretty Aenviron : one mini-CDR is a simple thread of five pure field recordings with no processing! An integral element of tape composition, pre- and post-computer era, has been the use of mathematical equations in determining sound characteristics and, on Three Slow Down - Imany - The Shape Of A Broken Heart Northern MixBarrett utilizes loose algorithmic structures refracting sight, sound, and sensation.
Section one is based on a statistical simulation of rain falling onto a two-dimensional surface ; in the third section, locations of events are calculated by using a numerical system, in this instance, sound materials placed by hand, Displaced : Replaced - Fog have a lighter and more deliberate character. The result of this statistical realization? Such a Cage-ean approach serves her well ; however, an even better result is achieved when Barrett lets her senses take over, as in the remarkable Red Snowcomposed after her relocation to Norway and a definitive representation of Light Wind - Natasha Barrett - Isostasie awareness of the surrounding environment : swirling snowflakes at the mercy of wind, labyrinthine ice crystal patterns, stark moonlit landscapes.
