4CD BOX SET
RELEASE DATE OCT 1.
We are really excited to announce the release of this monumental 4CD-document by Keith Rowe and John Tilbury. Produced by visual artist Kjell Bjørgeengen, this collaboration brings out new sides from the two masters of sound. Stay tuned for more info coming up.
There are now some fairly lengthy extracts from both of these releases on Sofa's SoundCloud page.

i will buy this and play the whole thing immediately on delivery and like it oh so much ... and yet wish that it never existed (posted while relistening to the void 2013 live recording, which sounds more urgent to my ears than the cd-full of an extract linked to above)
you're going to have to explain that, maybe I understand but I'd hate to jump to the wrong conclusion, so I'm going to ask you to spell it out a bit more. thanks!

they've been so good so far as a duo. started out with an instantly ultimate studio statement (as we all agree upon), but the live recordings since 2010 (what i know of them, e.e. and radio grabs from the void 2013 and an earlier french one which i think is different from e.e. but can't find right now) are also very strong meetings, very urgent, risk-taking, inspired, in the moment. my heart sinks at having a new 4cd set, 'curated' by a single person, a documentation, a life of the duo, which will tell me all their ticks and licks and limitations in one handy doorstopper. even if the music is great. also maybe one has to hear all 4 hours mortonlike to fully understand the hour sofa posted, but on first blush it seems to be the least exciting thing i've heard from the duo. (so i listened to that other set to check if i was still properly calibrated.)

ok, interesting. I'm not sure comparison to their earlier work is the best thing here, but an addition to what we have previously. also I don't know how clear SOFA plans to make it, but I don't think is exactly curated or cut down, but more of an extended installation meant originally to accompany a visual piece by Keith's frequent collaborator Kjell Bjørgeengen. I'm not a hundred percent sure about whether it's edited or what, but it certainly isn't a concert or concert-like a la Duos for Doris.

Damon Smith said on FB the other day that Keith told him this was the first of his 'Late' works, so that might help one put it into context also.

thanks for that. that might explain the measured approach. (late who? late beethoven rather than late robert zimmerman one would hope. (i unreservedly trust and look forward to the already lateish at-least-4cd box of an extended room, btw!!!))

I didn't announce it yet, but the next issue of 'surround' should have some transcribed conversations between these two from the period that this was recorded, basically Keith asking John questions in pubs whenever he had a chance. of course, that means I will have to finish transcribing them sometime... :)

Alessandro Bosetti - Autumnal Sisters (Manual, 2015)
manual wrote: type : DVD

Autumnal Sisters

7 MaskMirror improvisations.

01 ­ Shrink 11’12″
02 ­ Autumnal Sisters 13’51″ (with Taeyong Kim)
03 ­ Age 6’22″
04 ­ Chair Detectives 6’16″
05 ­ The corporate color of Skype 9’21″ (with Taeyong Kim and Orolo ­ – Mask Mirror)
06 ­ Round Midnight 6’24″
07 ­ Geography Porn 12’38″ (with Taeyong Kim)

Total duration : 66’08″



Videography: Orolo
Additional videography (on 05 – 07): Alessandro Bosetti
Photography: Fatima Bianchi
Editing : Alessandro Bosetti
Translation : Orolo (on 01-03, 05, 07), Taeyong Kim(on 02, 05, 07)

Recorded in Seoul, October 19 and 20, 2013
Produced in Seoul and Marseille

Autumnal Sisters recollects seven performances by Alessandro Bosetti, in solo and teaming up with writer Kim Taeyong and video maker Orolo.

In the seven short films of this collection – filmed in Seoul in 2013 – you experience the unedited original performances which have been reframed and juxtaposed with a series of visual cues and interventions. The seven episodes of Autumnal Sisters are part experimental videos, part performative documents, and part visual poems with a strong sonorous aspect.

They alternate English, Italian and Korean languages and are accompanied by bilingual subtitles. They are so far the most comprehensive documents of Alessandro Bosetti’s recent work as a performer and improviser which in the past decade has progressively mutated from music to language. All performances kick off from improvisations made using MaskMirror, a musical instrument which takes language rather than sound as it’s main material. The player / instrument relation is ambiguous whereas the performer or a combination of two or three performers appears to be played by the instrument itself or at least to be entangled in a performative and conversational dispositive.

When language is freed from the constraints of generally accepted discourse, it necessarily falls into ridicule or provocation as most of word combinations appear to be forbidden. So forbidden that we never think about them. The others look at us with surprise “Is that really possible to say what has just been said ?” while we have indeed no idea of what – in our discourse incomprehensible to ourselves – could have provoked such a scandal.

Taku Sugimoto and Ensemble - Septet (Meenna, 2015)

Taku Sugimoto: Electric guitar, Composition.
Johnny Chang: Viola
Koen Nutters: Double Bass
Bryan Eubanks,: Sine Waves
Rebecca Lane Flute
Derek Shirley: Cello
Michael Thieke: Clarinet
Septet This composition is conceived of as a sort of a double concertino for clarinet, flute, and small ensemble. However, the two main instruments, clarinet and flute, make no melody: the one tone is shared and repeated by them. I want to have the other instruments (viola, cello, contrabass, guitar, and sine-tone generator) work as if they are drawing several spectrums with the sound of clarinet or flute, so each of these instruments has a specific set of microtones to play. In order to make it easier to produce those of microtones, the stringed instruments are tuned anomalously; only harmonics or open strings are played. The very low frequencies are produced only by the sine-tone generator since these frequencies are too low to play with any musical instrument except piano. http://goo.gl/Yrv7y1

p.s. after a week or so of shared time, i find that it (Rowe/Tilbury doorstopper) indeed isn't too much at all. the concept (incidental music for an installation you can freely walk into and out of) translates to pure audio very well, and since music which i can walk into and out of is for me a recognized home listening mode, this is both welcome and i'd say here transcends accidental fitness for the purpose. on the downside, when i sit in a chair and stare at the speakers, the passages where sounds come into and walk out of massive silences seem to move in somewhat familiar mode, over recent years this has been done so much and so well that the conceptual difference still does not make the trope sound quite fresh. but it's wonderful music i play a lot and i'm glad to have it (except it came with half of the teeth in the trays broken ...)
