jonathan coleclough & ben owen ::: two chambers ::: 09:13

Jonathan: I visited Patrick and worked on two pieces of music while I was there. The first was an attempt to harness a technique Steve Peters uses for his Chamber Music series (http://stevepeters.bandcamp.com/album/chamber-music ) – recording an empty space and then processing the recording to isolate and emphasise particular narrow bands of frequencies. A bit like sifting flour through a sieve with only a few unblocked holes. For this purpose I made a recording in the cellar of Patrick’s house. For the second piece of music, which was already partly finished, I wanted to add some bell sounds. Patrick had a variety of metal bowls and I discovered three that seemed to fit well with the tuning of the piece. I returned to the cellar and recorded these bells while listening to the partly finished piece on headphones. Then I had the idea of combining the two cellar recordings. With help from Patrick and Hitoshi Kojo I shifted the narrow bands of frequencies in the first piece so that they sounded more consonant with the bells I had recorded for the second piece. I liked the result and offered a section of it (entitled ‘Chamber Perruel’) to Patrick for framework250.

Ben: my recording was made on residence in upstate new york at a place called Experimental Television Center. what you hear are binaural mic’s clipped to my ankles as i walk slowly around the studio room.

Patrick: jonathan and ben submitted their two recordings separately, but in the first framework250 show i ended up mixing the two together. i actually quite like to two recordings together; both quite minimal, but with very different qualities that seem to compliment one another. i proposed to ben and jonathan that a mixed version be used for the cd release and they agreed, asking me to do the final mix. really, i did very little to it – the recordings were approximately the same length, and i left the levels of each as they were. this is the outcome.

michael rüsenberg ::: steve welsh ::: 03:58

“Steve Welsh” has been recorded on Jan 27th 2008 by occasion of a soundwalk, led by Chris Watson. Separated from the group by chance I heard some beautiful noise – full garbage containers being pushed from the back of Wyndham’s Theatre through the small alley of St. Martin’s Court, London WC2, to St. Martin’s Lane, discharged into a wating lorry and pushed back exhausted.

In fact this has been the very first recording with my then new R¯des NT4 mic, neither edited or filtered. The title in part stems from the worker, who introduced himself as Steve, as to be heard partly because – as I’ve been enlightened later – he spoke with a heavy Welsh accent.

“Steve Welsh” is part of the upcoming series “London Calling”.

john grzinich ::: sentience of spring ::: 09:48

A mix of field recordings and site-specific sound actions made in the Spring of 2009 in Southeast Estonia and Riga Latvia, some of which include my ongoing fascination with found long wire installations. This is a slightly remixed version of a piece composed for the Active Crossover installation by Simon Whetham that was exhibited in Bristol in October 2009.

jez riley french ::: instamatic #5 – building 14, zlin ::: 10:00

This piece was recorded in Bata’s shoe producing city in the Czech Republic. What we hear are the sounds of one of the last remaining shoe workshops filtered through the old heating system, using my own JrF contact mics & also the stairwell recorded with a conventional condenser microphone. A lot of my work explores space & all of it is influenced not by ‘interesting’ sounds but by the recording of moments & an intuitive emotional response to that time.

simon whetham ::: eesti tree creak ::: 04:15

recorded in a remote north estonian woodland whilst recording with john grzinich and taavi tulev, may 2009. i don’t often get the opportunity to present such a raw, unprocessed recording (or maybe don’t allow myself the opportunity…?), but still marvel at the stillness and movement occurring simultaneously in this piece.
