U68 Clinton Watkins | Raaswater CD/Digital

Almost 17 years back, and under the moniker of Whitebass, Clinton Watkins carved a remarkable aural “vessel” of impressive, subsonic scope, aptly named “depth of field” for my previous Mystery Sea label…such a long time after, it’s an utter privilege to work with him again…
Clinton has a serious CV, and is the holder of a doctoral degree in Fine Arts. He’s a lecturer at both the Elam School of Fine Arts and the University of Technology in Auckland, and produces audiovisual immersive experiences for galleries and exhibitions…more recently, he has been working as a composer and sound designer for the artist collective FIELD RECORDINGS…most of all, he has been associated with the New Zealand experimental music scene for over 20 years with quite a bunch of published releases on the likes of Circle, 20 City, Claudia, Mystery Sea, CMR, Absurd among others…he also performed all over the world…

Raaswater” is a distillation of many hours of recordings made while participating to the Sonic Mmabolela 2018 residency directed by Francisco Lopez...And regarding immersion, it is indeed a particular rapture, as it succeeds in bringing out the very pulse of Life itself through a non linear rhythm acting as an almost invisible spine to the whole composition framed in 11 parts…

in “Raaswater” the liquid element is a ghost presence, rivers arms are dried up, the environment is arid, though far from dead…wind activates fences, metal clinks, hyenas yelp, white sun bleached bones crush under the soles, insects chatter, an ubiquitous daytime chant, and a nocturnal spellbinding effluence

This is an alignment with the echoing vastnessa venous earth-beatevaporation turned into imprint, a map of signs to help grasp at full extentan intoxicating inescapable lament

U69  Masayuki Imanishi | insects are CD/Digital

It’s been quite a while that I’m taken with Masayuki Imanishi‘s engrossing works. His “Levee” piece on one of the Each Morning of the World compilation curated by Stéphane Marin became the trigger to invite him…More field recordings oriented, this altered revisitation of personal familiar places uncoiled as some enigmatic movie…

Masayuki Imanishi‘s artistic path traces back to more than 10 years with notable releases on Creative Sources, ini.itu, Moving Furniture Records, Hemisphäreの空虚 and more…
His usual array of “tools” consist of paper, radio, tapes, objects, and field recordings…imbued with the japanese concepts of wabi-sabi and mono no aware, his approach is based on emphasizing the small transient subtle sounds of his close surroundings, reintroducing them in sentient reconstructions…For the Unfathomless series, he captured perfectly the spirit of summer permeating his preferred places for wandering, but not only…

On “insects are“, the focus is on the intangible, the elusive, initiating a deep communion with things…
There are rustles on each surface, and there is motion everywhere…circular figures of sound create a pervasive magnetic ambience…we enter a blooming garden of soft gestures, murmursa natural flow above which modulated fragments of playing tape quiver in unison with this universea keen plunge in the underlying

insects areunfurls a wordless tale, oozing the extra-ordinary, capturing all the flickering vibes to put us on a unique path of rediscoverya skilful reprocessing of the Real, and definitely a way within
