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 – Xperimental Intermedia
It seems that the Canadian author Matt Rogalsky is attracted by absence and a sort of proposing stasis, in his creative maelstrom halfway between iterative music, drones and improvisation, invisible and inaudible matter, which seconds ‘ignored information flows’. ‘Memory Like Water’ shows an almost classic register at the beginning, even though in the extreme and rarefied forms of the first four long suites on a total of seven, in these two CDs published by Xperimental Intermedia. Seven performances made with the help of some software programs (‘Kash’, ‘Sprawl’) designed by the author himself. Starting from the third track, there are collaborative improvisations, at first based on violins, then guitars, then on manipulations of the sounds of two radio stations or using techniques of granular synthesis, weaving sound textures and delicate minimal melodies.
