Various Artists - Hearings
What do coffee machines, neon tubes and gameboys have in common? They can all be found as the creators of sound on the CD “Hearings”. everyday objects as instruments and unconventional approaches as a principle: this premiere CD from transacoustic research’s newly founded label offers, along with the reinterpretation of language samples into musical material, also the sound of the jew’s harp as the basis for electronic music, homemade laptops, and sounds from hard drives’ writing heads.
The individual tracks, which range from pieces that are nearly dance rhythms to calm contemplative stretches, prove that these unconventional approaches can lead to impressive musical results.
