A Soft Hiss Of This World (by Tim Ingold, Carmen Pardo & Mikel R Nieto)
Cat: 765375 Rel: 11 Jun 20
 
paperback book
Notes: The research project "A soft hiss of this world" is focused on the loss in many aspects such as the loss of language as a result of the Anthropocene through the absence of certain states and processes that occur naturally in the environment like different states of water, snow and ice. In Finnish there are more than forty terms* to refer to them and because of the loss of these states in the landscape, the loss is also displaced to the language, in this case, the Finnish.

This research project took these words as a starting point to make hundreds of hours of recordings in the Finnish landscape. The sound of snow, ice and snowflakes are the reference and the sound material of this research project. And to obtain these sounds, as well as the possible sound differences between each snowflake, special and specific microphones were developed for this very specific and fragile recording process.
This book contains texts by three authors: Tim Ingold, Carmen Pardo and Mikel R. Nieto, on the research carried out by Nieto in Finland during 2016. The text by Tim Ingold opens the book and introduces the reader to the main subjects of the research: language, landscape, sound and listening. This text is easy to read and aims to immerse us in the Finnish landscape and in the listening act to its sounds and silences. Carmen Pardo's text unfolds first, the way in which the gaze and listening of the snow constitute the experience of a disappearance, of a concentration in the void or nothingness of which A Soft Hiss of this World participates.

The third text belongs to Mikel R. Nieto and is divided into four parts. The third part is a code that reflects the loss of most of the sound recordings made during his research with more than 600 hours of recordings. This code is the only thing that could be recovered from all recordings, except the only sound recording published in physical format as a transparent Flexi-disc.

The fourth part is the result of silencing each and every word by John Cage in his "Lecture on Nothing," leaving only the punctuation marks, such as commas, periods, separators and the last sentence of the text of Cage. Every time the transparent flexi-disc is played, the player needle wears away the vinyl and making the sound of the recording disappear. Therefore, each listening destroys the sound."

Autumn's Sun by Loren Connors
Autumn's Sun by Loren Connors (82 page paperback book)
Cat: 789524 Rel: 07 Sep 20
 
The definitive edition of Loren Connors' texts.
Notes: In the mid-80s, Connors took a partial break from music and focused instead on the art of haiku, for which he received the Lafcadio Hearn Award in 1987. With his wife Suzanne Langille he also co-wrote an article on blues and haiku, "The Dancing Ear," published in the Haiku Society of America's journal. It was during this period that Connors penned the material that appears in Autumn's Sun, a chapbook first published by Thurston Moore and Byron Coley's Glass Eye in 1999. The text features diary excerpts from 1987, lyrically fragmented observations interspersed with haiku-like poems that paint an idyllic impression of the passing seasons in his home of New Haven, Connecticut. With synesthetic perception, Connors gazes from tranquil domestic streets. Sycamore, elm, and catalpa trees are activated by the breeze and made to rustle in unison with their natural and artificial surroundings, including the howling dogs from which Connors derived his "Mazzacane" moniker. As summer fades to winter, Connors portrays death as an undramatic certitude, the flux of his own maturation reflected in musings on his son's. Like his music, Autumn's Sun is tender without being sentimental, conjuring those rare, delicate moments when time stands still.

This edition includes "The Dancing Ear" and an introduction by Lawrence Kumpf.

Beyond Heaven II: Chicago House Party Flyers Volume II: From 1981-1992
Cat: 778028 Rel: 16 Oct 20
 
Full colour 96 page paperback book
Notes: With the original Beyond Heaven out of stock, Almighty Insane were at a crossroads . But when Mario "Liv It Up" Luna dug up a long-forgotten cache of material, and from that we bring you Beyond Heaven: Volume II. It has the same format as Volume I, but with all new flyers documenting an extended window of history, from early "mobile discos" that reflect roots of the underground movement before the term "house" was even coined, to the emergence of a new generation of house DJs and artists in Chicago inspired by the pioneers of the genre. As with the original, this book reflects a mix of figures and parallel movements that were entangled with the world of house. From dance groups to party crews, alongside promoters, labels, and record stores, both well established and lesser known-all are points of departure to good memories and/or further investigations into one of the greatest eras in the history of Chicago music, with a legacy that is profoundly influential to this day.

La Capture De L'inaudible by Matthieu Saladin
Cat: 784382 Rel: 24 Jul 20
 
Software Edition on SD card in a Silkscreen booklet, including a text by Jonathan Sterne
Notes: La capture de l'inaudible, conceived by Matthieu Saladin, is the edition of a software acting like a reverse MP3 encoder. Where a classical MP3 encoder removes inaudible frequencies to reduce the size of an audio file, the reverse encoder gives these frequencies to listen, removing what the mp3 format usually keeps.

The software comes on a SD card, going along a booklet with a selection of texts on the inaudible, and a text written by Jonathan Sterne.

The SD card contains also the whole Artkillart catalog, re-encoded with Matthieu Saladin's software.

Tracks created with the software can be archived online, only on user's request, and participate to the constitution of a global inaudible library.

Music As Seismographic Sound: Tracking Down The Idea Of Cultural Translation by Ania Mauruschat
Cat: 789519 Rel: 07 Sep 20
 
A proposal for a radio project on the diffusion of world music in the digital age, focusing on the concept of seismographic sound.
Notes: The publication Music as Seismographic Sound / Tracking Down the Idea of Cultural Translation is a written radio pitch by Ania Mauruschat, closely following musicians in bi- or multi-lingual cultural contexts.
Ania Mauruschat is a radio journalist who has produced several features on sound art, with the German radio station Bayerischer Rundfunk, and the Swiss national radio station SRF.

The written pitch comes in the form of an appendix of source materials, including excerpts from interviews with selected musicians.

"Music is the fastest traveling medium. As some scholars like to argue, it even might have a seismographic potential. Thus, the Swiss ethnomusicologist Thomas Burkhalter speaks of "seismographic sounds" regarding the rather new phenomenon of global digital "world music 2.0". This musical phenomenon developed predominantly in the urban centres of the "Global South"iSao Paulo, La Paz, Lagos, Cape Town, Jakarta, Beirut or Manilai, long before it drew the attention of journalists and researchers from the "Global North" in the early 2000s.

To scrutinize and better understand this situation of in-betweenness, the radio feature will focus exemplary on two very distinct and yet similar case studies of seismographic sound generating hubs: firstly, the label Outhere Records, which is based in Munich, Germany and serves as a platform especially for the young Pan-African scene of world music 2.0; and secondly, the label Aakuluk Music in Iqaluit, Nunavut, the northernmost territory of Canada, which is devoted to developing the young musical scene in the Arctic to facilitate the search for identity and independence of the Inuit musicians in their postcolonial reality of community building."

Spectres II: Resonances
Cat: 775760 Rel: 11 May 20
 
196 page book with thread-sewn softcover, produced by Shelter Press in French & English
Notes: To resonate: re-sonare. To sound again with the immediate implication of a doubling. Sound and its double: sent back to us, reflected by surfaces, diffracted by edges and corners. Sound amplified, swathed in an acoustics that transforms it. Sound enhanced by its passing through a certain site, a certain milieu. Sound propagated, reaching out into the distance. But to resonate is also to vibrate with sound, in unison, in synchronous oscillation. To marry with its shape, amplifying a common destiny. To join forces with it. And then again, to resonate is to remember, to evoke the past and to bring it back. Or to plunge into the spectrum of sound, to shape it around a certain frequency, to bring out sonic or electric peaks from the becoming of signals.

Resonance embraces a multitude of different meanings.

Or rather, remaining always identical, it is actualised in a wide range of different phenomena and circumstances. Such is the multitude of resonances evoked in the pages below: a multitude of occurrences, events, sensations, and feelings that intertwine and welcome one other. Everyone may have their own history, everyone may resonate in their own way, and yet we must all, in order to experience resonance at a given moment, be ready to welcome it. The welcoming of what is other, whether an abstract outside or on the contrary an incarnate otherness ready to resonate in turn, is a condition of resonance. This idea of the welcome is found throughout the texts that follow, opening up the human dimension of resonance, a dimension essential to all creativity and to any exchange, any community of mind. Which means that resonance here is also understood as being, already, an act of paying attention, i.e. a listening, an exchange.

Addressing one or other of the forms that this idea of resonating can take on (extending, evoking, reverberating, revealing, transmitting), each of the contributions brought together in this volume reveals to us a personal aspect, a fragment of the enthralling territory of sonic and musical experimentation, a territory upon which resonance may unfold. The book has been designed as a prism and as a manual. May it in turn find a unique and profound resonance in each and every reader.
