Relayed concise close aural observation from another sharp listener, Brian Olewnick in his Just Outside blog about “being there“, testifying of an impactful pervasive collage of sound

 

 

 

For the discreet but long present The Sound Projector magazine, Jennifer Hor interrogates Grisha Shakhnes‘ creative practice and the way it reduces distance, while proposing a full-bodied inescapable rolling out of riveting sounds

 

 

 

For The Sound Projector, Nausika/Jennifer Hor perambulates into the recesses of “something veiled” stating the range of its latent potentials once you get absorbed into it

U62 Vanessa Rossetto | self-care CD/Digital

 

 

Obviously aside, with a very strong personal universe on the edge of sound poetry and radiophonic theater, documenting her own life within various contexts, she carves an intimate audio diary which may as well serve as a mirror for our own yearnings and questioning. Vanessa Rossetto is – simply put – a prime contemporary American composer

…self-care unfolds like a vintage flawed film and is a powerful avant-garde meditation about reflection, and the relation to ourselves…It operates like a domestic ritual…

The few proper truly musical moments make this confession even more intense, and highly reinterpretable – the voice is the guide and also the Carroll-esque rabbit’s hole…

A slow dripping acts like an opening curtain, and triggers the awakening
In the background, obscure appliances purr,
naked voices tear the morning, a conversation starts and stops, the city cries…
Tranquil sounds creep in the day, noises lurk.
It’s windy outside
Traffic serenade, radio snippets, sighs,
all eventually coalesce in punctual grandiose sound elevation
Shuffling bric-à-brac, searching for answers into the rummage,
trying to escape…
A ghost choral lures us in, and then slips away…
It’s time to care about ourselves perhaps…

U63  Thibault Jehanne | Farol CD/Digital

 

 

Seriously impressed by his previous album “Eskifjörður” on French imprint Kaon a few years back, I’ve never ceased to keep an attentive ear on Thibault’s creations…both sound artist and video maker, he’s trying through his practice to isolate fragments of time, and to spark off focused listening…
in a sort of a crossroad between motion and stillness, he seems to have found a singular space where he develops his own narratives that just transcend the moment and take us elsewhere
When I stumbled upon his page exposing his work around the 25th April in bridge in Lisbon, it immediately referred to my own fascination for this piece of architecture as a sound object, and how it inscribed itself in its environment, and kind of animated it…

…“Farol” starts like a distant siren song, a strange breathing inducing a majestic swaying…sighs of a giant steel accordion performing the ceaseless traffic…

mesmerizing staccato…continuous motion as an invitation…at some point, voices emerge, anchoring the aerial…
Water laps against metal, making it whine…

…“Farol” brings you to another shore through its alien roar, making us gaze, inspired, at the possibilities of transformation…

…just really around the corner, the first set of new releases for 2020initial info already available on the respective pages, audio-excerpts & additional details to be uploaded very soon …

U62 Vanessa Rossetto “self-care”
U63 Thibault JehanneFarol


Assembled painfully and seriously lagging the still anticipated usual “Best Of” 2019 list from the Unfathomless HQ…the abundance of sources makes it a bit more difficult each year  – may its publication lead to some potential discoveries and new aural pleasures…
To browse through it, pls click on the thumbnail below.

Again, future doesn’t seem that bright, all signals are in the red, minds keep stubbornly obtuse – our only hope lies in individual transformation and awakening, but ends are often new beginnings…

For various personal reasons, beliefs, I still consider Art & Music as deep solace and vectors of good word and action…

Whenever you can, do support independent labels & artists – your karma will improve considerably…

IMMENSE GRATITUDE as ever to all the loyal and new supporters, followers, and Bandcamp fans who boost me at large amplitude, and are so really the spine of the growing Unfathomless roster…

For 2020, lots on the plate – expect works from (tbc) : Nicola Di Croce, Philip Sulidae, Clinton Watkins, Simon Whetham Jeph Jerman, Giovanni Lami, Ludovic Medery, Jay-Dea Lopez

PS : still not on the rails, but ever in thoughts : a Mystery Sea Bandcamp presence

Howard Stelzer exposes his own view of acoustic ecology, and how much “something veiled” enters deep into the territory of sonic poetry ending up as a rich catalyst of imagination
