Three works of friction, involving metal, wood, skin, water and air.
Before electronics, musical sound was always produced by means of the phyiscal friction of a solid or a gas (air or breath) against some other object. These electronic works also center upon frictional elements, in this case the motion of the sensitive end of a microphone moved directly across various surfaces. In addition, a number of field recordings of various winds and running waters are included, often as soundings of empty spaces, such as caves, ruins, churches, and remote mountain monasteries in Georgia and Armenia. For additional texture, radio static is also used.
Included as a bonus track is an older filecast ocean of steel, made from recordings of steel streetcar wheels straining against tight rail curves at Berlin’s Alexanderplatz.
