on the road again, so i’ll once again keep it short and sweet. this week i’m writing to you from the attic of the uue maailma seltsimaja (‘new world community house’) in tallinn – a very interesting community project, well worth looking into: http://www.uusmaailm.ee. we (john grzinich, derek holzer and i) will be hosting our workshop sonic surveys of tallinn here over the next week, as part of our collaboration with tuned city (http://www.tunedcity.net) over the coming month, and then throughout 2011. is you’re around please check it out!
meanwhile some recordings i’ve been trying to get to for some time, including an excellent pair of discs by mathieu ruhlmann on the new unfathomless label, brought to us by the good folks at mystery sea, some great spatialization from dallas simpson, and the beautifully packaged (on ben owen’s letterpress machine) and beautiful sounding album by gilles aubry, which i noticed seemed to make a lot of the ‘best of 2009’ lists that were going around a few months ago. also some more sounds from canada’s absolute value of noise, and yet another great framework intro by martin clarke.
