Special thanks to Zoviet France & Gwaith Sŵn

May 5, 2017

Many thanks to the experimental music collectives Zoviet France and Gwaith Sŵn, for featuring Disinformation tracks in their recent radio shows on Resonance FM. Zoviet France played the track “Absolute Zero” – which was originally commissioned for the CD of the same name (featuring Biosphere, Jiri Ceiver, Disinformation, Gescom, Hallucinator, Hazard, Monolake and Zoviet France), as compiled in collaboration with the choreographer Saburo Teshigawara and published by Zoviet France in 2000. For all you statistical thermodynamics fans (!) the Disinformation track starts with a burst of thermal noise, caused by the Brownian motion of free electrons in the amplifying circuits. The noise fades down to the acoustic equivalent of absolute zero, before transforming into a deep drone, based on microtonal or Tartini tunings of 40Hz sine-waves (this track was also used as a proof-of-concept for “The Analysis of Beauty” exhibition at Talbot Rice Gallery in Edinburgh in 2014).

The Resonance FM show also features Audio Obscura, Beequeen, Winne Clement, Ensemble Recherche, Cheikh Hamed bel Hadj Hamadi ben Allal, Katja Institute, Rhythm of Space, Jakob Rosin, Sala, Will Saul, Sound Celestial Orchestra, Milan Stibilj, the Sunken Hum, Swell Sounds, (wildlife recording artist) Chris Watson and Winjer3. The Disinformation track starts 8:38 into the programme – please listen through good quality external loudspeakers or headphones (not laptop speakers), and, for earlier documentation of these ideas, refer to the article published by Hull Time Based Arts in 1999 (see Flickr link)…

Gwaith Sŵn’s recent “piano” special featured “Doppelgänger” from the “Sense Data & Perception” CD, and two tracks (back-to-back) from the “Circuit Blasting” CD, which was recorded in collaboration with Strange Attractor. “Doppelgänger” was (loosely) inspired by the work of the same name by Franz Schubert, and, while readers may be familiar with “Circuit Blasting” as a technical innovation in relation to Circuit Bending, the idea here was to highlight “Circuit Blasting” as an example of experimental piano music. These tracks start 0:43 and 40:54 into the broadcast, which also features pieces by Daria Baiocchi, Kevin Ka Wei Chan, Sam Conran, Paul Freeman, Jenn Kirby and Dan Linn-Pearl. Here’s the re-play link…
