Label: Preservation

Format: CDx2

Genre: Electronic

In stock


Motion – Movement In Australian Sound is a generous, 2-CD overview of 22 artists representing Australia’s burgeoning terrain of electronic and experimental music. From Scott Horscroft’s mesmerising piece for eleven guitars, the sublimely sweet, driving tones of Pretty Boy Crossover, Sue Harding’s melodies from dot matrix printers to renown veteran Alan Lamb’s awe-inducing casting of field recordings from the West Australian outback, Motioncasts wide to expose some of the most creative and fascinating sonic brilliance Australia has to offer. Some artists, such as Sydney’s Pimmon and Oren Ambarchi, have already garnered much overseas recognition and success for their work, with guitar improvisor Ambarchi recently awarded an Honourary Mention in the prestigious Prix Ars Electronica, Europe’s awards for cyberarts. To ensure some kind of cohesiveness with such a diverse array of artists, as well as fresh, original material, each act was asked to contribute a track with an open-ended brief in mind – exploring ideas of motion in some way through sound. The resulting overall quality shows a depth of thought andfeeling from some seriously engaging talent, pushing boundaries as well as coming up with some most moving music. (Label info)
