Compelling sound stuff from two different sources.
First a piece from projectsinge.net,
a kind of feedback carillon & the movement that
it engenders/engenders it totally absorbing -
comedic, touching, strange.
Secondly, work by Alan Sondheim, who needs
no introduction here. More delicate & austere
than the Larsener piece, it provides a sharp &
fascinating contrast in the, one would have hitherto
thought, relatively easily exhausted, genre of
“work-made-by-having-microphones-or
-other-devices-attached-to-one’s-body.”
