Reblogged Structure-Image, Possibly for Music

Martijn Tellinga / Circalles - for computer / 2007For the past two nights I’ve been sitting in my studio, obsessively scrutinizing Jonny Greenwood’s magnificently bleak score for There Will be Blood. The first time I heard the shrill syncopation of Prospectors Arrive, the centrepiece of the work, it immediately reminded me of a project I came across last year that I had intended to write about here on Serial Consign.

The above image is the score for two movements of Circalles, a 2007 composition by Martijn Tellinga, a Netherlands based sound artist and electroacoustic musician. Circalles is Tellinga’s second experiment with what he refers to as “Compositional Objects”, a term that resonates with his clinical manipulation of the clusters of modulating tones that populate these works.

Helena Gough – …something from nearly nothing

helena.jpgHelena Gough is a Birmingham-based sound artist whose work involves the collection and manipulation of ‘real-world’ sound material and the exploration of its abstract properties. Each new sound piece is created by taking everything possible from the tiniest element – working to create something from nearly nothing. Initially trained in violin and composition at the Royal Academy of Music, Junior Academy, Helena went on to complete a BMus at Birmingham University. She is now a regular live (laptop) performer, working under her own name and also as part of Migrant, an electroacoustic trio with Nicholas Bullen (ex Napalm Death/Black Galaxy) and Simon Mabbott.

“Quiet American” by Aaron Ximm

quietamerican.jpgQuiet American is the manipulation of sounds Aaron Ximm hears and records. The project began as he grappled with what it meant to be a tourist in another culture. It continues as he grapples with what it means to be a tourist in his own. The opportunity, the thrill, and the risk of travel is being present to the world. Ximm’s goal with Quiet American is to sketch in sound the experience of being in an unfamiliar place.

Ximm made his first work from field recordings in the fall of 1998. While traveling in Vietnam, he recorded musicians, trains, moving water, crickets, monks, markets, metalwork, tired animals, and drunken tourists. Continue reading
