Sindre Bjerga has been wiretapping the secret frequencies of ghostly drones for years now. Though a steady flow of releases on numerous labels around the world he has been channeling the spectral transmissions from the grey void… Expect psychedelic drones that sometimes collide with snippets of found sounds from half-demagnetized tapes and concrete sounds from wrecked kitchen utensils… Recent releases: “Crystal cranium, diamond head” (Blackest Rainbow) and “Black Cobweb mind” (Klang und Krach).

At Chisenhale Gallery Hecker will present a series of four independent, electro-acoustic works that lead the visitor around the gallery space, where each work exposes a fault line in the traditional categorizations of auditory events, auditory objects or streams. Continue reading

Plastic People No. 5

plastic-copy.jpgFor the 5th compilation of Plastic People, they have chosen to illustrate how visual/conceptual artists use sound as a component of a mixed media work or a texture directly worked on with conceptual tools. Depending on the position of the listener, this snapshot can be interpreted as a cliché.

Artists can occasionally show contempt towards the reactionary concerns of ‘experimental’ or electroacoustic music. In the meantime, listening with a composer’s ear will reveal the banality or ‘déjà entendu’ nature of sound used by a fine artist. Hedonistic pleasure of hearing or Kantian reward of understanding?
