Gunilla Leander - All Under Installation

1 – Edvard Graham Lewis – ‘We’ve Lost Your Mind’ – All Over – United Kingdom, 2014

One of a selection of tracks produced for various films works, including Gunilla Leander’s All Under, the installation version of which is pictured above.

2 – Whilst – ‘The Eagle Has Wings’ – Canadian Drones, Volume One – Canada, 2011

3 – Pronoun – ‘Screeching Dreams of Mr Klein’ – Faux – Australia, 2014

4 – Gary Wright – ‘Impulse’ – Electronic Music University of Melbourne – Canada, 1980

Hard-to-find poly-rhythmic conceptual piece by Canada-born, Australia-raised artist Gary Wright. Thankfully reissued by Keith Fullerton Whitman on Creel Pone back in 2006.

5 – Minoru Sato -m/s – ‘Its Love, Its Scale’ [excerpt] / ‘Its Harmony’ – Sex God Sex – Japan, 2014

Better known for subtle manipulations of the musical elements he milks out of non-instruments (like an interventionist Toshiya Tsunoda), for this recording Sato instead designed and built the album’s eponymous instrument, seen in performance below. A rather foreboding experience after listening for the full 43 minutes, but timbrally interesting and rhythmic enough to maintain attention.


6 – Petro Riparbelli – ‘Chiesa di Santa Sofia’ – Sacred Architecture – Benevento – Italy, 2014

A field recording-based series of works exploring (among other concepts) the profane aesthetics of spaces built for the sacred released this spring on Galaverna.

7 – Holly Herndon – ‘Body Sound’ – Body Sound – United States, 2014

8 – Anne-James Chaton with Alva Noto and Andy Moor – ‘Chapitre VIII: Nihon No Tabi’ – Décade – France / Germany / Scotland, 2012
