Eternal September, the rise of amateur culture exhibition at Aksioma, curated by Valentina Tanni. From internet folklore to the deja vu “on the screen” an exploration of “amateur culture” quickly corroding certainties. http://www.aksioma.org/eternal.september/index.html
Cdr 3″ – White Line Editions
A collaborative project; the result of similar intentions and musical strategies. Fourm and Shinkei both submit respective compositions to this work – two individual tracks of just over ten minutes, which are published on a mini-cdr, with an elegant artwork design in translucent paper and printed cardboard. Tracks are soaked in a genuine minimalism and there are similarities in the structure of microsounds. The pieces are composed in strict conceptual structures – even down to the outcome of very controlled field recordings – in ‘Hidamari’ – or in the modulated space drones in ‘Metrics’, for example. The artists skillfully use granular auditive concretions to turn the synthetic quality into a precise style. They try to stimulate awareness of the non-audible – very typical of this scene, but still stunning. A listening experience that is appropriate for the use of good headphones, preferably in a quiet and dark space, to better perceive the infinitesimal differences of the signals and the delicate atmospheres very cleverly produced.
