New on Bandcamp is Periplus, a set of two suites recorded by Colla Parte in 2013 and 2014. Joined by our first two releases, also on Bandcamp.
Harold Schellinx‘s 4 April lecture/performance at La Generale is the verbal equivalent of montage–an abutment of reflection, fiction & explication. He’s also good enough to mention my On Playing by an Open Window from the current number of Perfect Sound Forever.
Drone music for acoustic ensembles is a recent interest. Here are some thoughts on the subject.
Playing by an open window or outdoors is something I’ve enjoyed doing. The nature of the performance is porous, allowing external sounds to seep in. The consequent exchange of sounds between inside and outside can be provocative, each putting the other in its own light. Harold Schellinx has done the same with a multi-tracked violin performance; Perfect Sound Forever has just published my consideration of his piece and of porous performances in general.
