ferns recordings has re-released a cassette work from 1986 by italian sound artist massimo toniutti on cd, and it’s great – meanwhile, yannick dauby sent us two LPs from his home in taiwan, the 2nd instalment of his penghu experimental sound studio series, and the frogoroth compilation on ini.itu. these were accompanied by sounds by elsa justel, from her new release on empreintes digitales (although the two works in the show are from 2012 and 2017 respectively). and we dove in to the latest batch of listener-chosen favorites from the aporee soundmaps, this week from poland, germany, and the united states.

greetings, fair listeners, we are back! we had a great month off, resting our ears (hard to do in a house with two small children), perfecting our pizza recipe (the right flour is the key), and spending as much time in the forest mushroom-hunting as possible. but now there’s a chill in the air, the first fires of autumn have been lit, and we are back in the studio.

july 18th was world listening day – in this edition we listen to a few of the recordings uploaded to the aporee soundmaps WLD2019 project, and we hear an introduction recorded on that day as well. meanwhile we finally had a chance to check out david rothenberg’s 2-disc release on gruenrekorder, nightingale cities, featuring his signature improvisations with wildlife – this time, as you might have guessed, with nightingales, in berlin and helsinki. we also heard a sample from absolute value of noise’s outdoor solar powered generative radio station, which “tries to recreate the sounds of life in its immediate environment – imitating the sounds of insects, birds, frogs, magnetic phenomena, the wind moving through the trees, rain falling, and waves on the ocean.” you can listen live (during canadian daylight hours) at the link below in the playlist. also some historical concrete composition by greek composer myrielle kyrou, a live performance recording by bana haffar, and a composition commissioned by this year’s radiophrenia festival by kate carr.

i think everything in this edition is available is available as a download, and some as physical releases as well – i guess we’re nearing the point where i don’t need to say that anymore, and soon enough it will be assumed that all releases are also available in virtual form. are we there already? mark vernon’s latest work is the most format-specific here, released on cassette, and composed from the sounds of found cassettes corroded by sea and sand at an abandoned holiday resort. kayaka’s virtual-only release, constructed from field recordings, harp, synth and spoken word, makes a good companion to mark’s rusty sounds, and sala’s ‘natural’ drone from a lithuanian forest, contributed to the aporee soundmaps, provides a soothing contrast. also along for the ride are a few more of biodiversita’s soundscapes, concrete compositions from sophie delafontaine, and a framework introduction recorded for us in sweden by longtime listener and contributor anders östberg.
