In stock


Between 2003 and 2004 - Michael Northam and Seijiro Murayama met a few times in Switzerland and France. One artifact of their meetings, 'They Stood Around and Watched' a 20 min CDR was published by universinternational. A more comprehensive and extended document of these meetings has finally made its way in the form of 'Moriendo Renascor'. Seeded from composed recordings taken in Lisbon, Portugal and Astoria, Oregon. Northam offered heavily mixed sources during these meetings. Selections were made by trying to find segments of activated sonic Ômatter' then finally to be passed through the ears and hands of Murayama. An awkward meeting perhaps - tangential - yet something else. A shared desire to find some shared experience through the medium of sound. During the process of creation the two took drives out to the Jura in Switzerland and through rural France and passed some terse moments arguing the finer points of the unlikely meeting between a densely planned acousmatic Ôcomposer' and a highly disciplined improvisor. A discussion that ended up producing four enigmatic tracks. 'Moriendo Renascor' - a term taken from a southern French dialect - meaning Ôin death, rebirth'.
