Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
CD – Unsounds
This is a work commissioned in 2004 by the Bruxelles Argos Festival, 73 minutes long, a single track whose first, feeble sound is heard after 52 seconds, very gloomy atmospheres, rarefied but intense, with a careful editing of the recordings made in thebelgian capital city, with the participation of TRMX, Johan Vandermaelen, Martiens Go Home and Building Transmissions. The sound substrate one could expect from urban environments is almost never heard; it looks like they’re not looking for an environmental specificness. The material transcends an analytical approach, preferring a more intimate story, made of silences, spatiality and background frequencies. It’s a subdued code, as if the city had imploded and everybody’s ‘resonances’ had become a private matter. It’s a fascinating work, difficult to decipher, a sound project that, once again, casts this artist as one of the most interesting in the experimental electronic scenes.
