Description

artist : Lumisokea album : Eavesdropping on Pianists buy this music on https://lumisokea.bandcamp.com/album/eavesdropping-on-pianists The music on this EP furthers our research into rhythm, synthesis and electro-acoustics, combining elements of noise music, musique concrète, techno and traditional percussion music from southern India and Korea. The sound sources of most of the percussion come from recordings we made of futuristic 'Noise Machines', designed by Vladimir Popov in the 1920's. These were exhibited in Berlin during the 2014 CTM festival at the ReNoise exhibition at Kunstraum Bethaniën. Besides Popov's Noise Instruments, there's quite some material coming from obscure synths recorded at STEIM (such as Böhm Soundlab modular synthesizer, STEIM-built Black Boxes) on top of our own instruments. Mastered by Rashad @ D&M The Noise Machines used in the recording are courtesy of The Music Laboratory (Moscow) and were recorded at the ReNoise exhibition in Berlin by Lumisokea. Special thanks to the people at ReNoise, CTM and Kunstraum Bethaniën for making this possible. Thanks also to Nico/Syberen at STEIM for the continued support they've given us over the years through providing residency space and the possibility of working with their instruments.
