Frozen Clinamen is a serie of works started by Failure Circle in autumn 2017. It follows a simple method inspired by the the possibilities of his no-input mixer set-up and the will to use a limited sound material in a posteriori compositions. All the sounds included in these works are recordings of moments that feature no human intervention. Frozen Clinamen #4 was recorded and mixed between June and August 2019, and released by Snow in Water Records in October 2019. Mastering and artwork by Nicolas Tourney.
Special thanks to John Krausbauer, Kaori Suzuki and Nicolas Tourney (Snow in Water records).
step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences.
step (2) Stopping tweaking, then recording for at least 20 minutes without any intervention on the set-up.
step (3) Repeating steps (1) & (2) several times.
step (4) Using the generated sounds as only source in a posteriori compositions. The only variations used while mixing are equalization, panoramics and volume levels.
step (5) play it at low/high volume with open/closed window while complety asleep / fully conscious.
This work is a single 2hours long piece but has been splitted in 3 parts only for convenience reasons
z(xW+yV) is a solo project started spring 2018 while experimenting different ways to generate low volume feedback with small gear. After some tries with one contact microphone and one 1W battery-powered amplifier it has evolved as a modular system on this basis, in order to generate not only feedback, but also feedback of feedback, and feedback of feedback of feedback (…) by chaining amps and microphones in a circular way that blurs more and more the distinction between sound source and sound’s reproduction, between acoustic musical instruments and electronic sound diffusion.
Unlike its first album 3×2(1W+18V) whose 3 pieces where mixes of 2 improvisations, Trois Prises features only raw improvisations played on more complex versions of the set-up (with 3 or 4 amplifiers). Track 1 & 3 contain no edits, track 2 was edited from a longer improvisation. It was originally released by eg0cide productions netlabel August 2019.
