***60 copies*** "No options" is a collaboration between electroacoustic trio Eventless Plot and bass clarinet player Chris Cundy. On the first part, field recordings are interrupted by unique harmony combinations produced by bass clarinet tones, electromagnetic mic and electronics. On the second part, noise and concrete sounds create the substrate for Chris’ bass clarinet sounds, emerging and highlighting extended techniques such as multi-phonics, circular breathing and micro tonality.
In Ataxia I the waves formed from electromagnetic microphone combined with the clarinet, bass clarinet & bass saxophone tones create blocks of multilayered material consisting the basis of the track. The fluctuation of near-tones is very present at times between the wind instruments and electronics.
In Ataxia II contact microphones are placed on the percussion surfaces and all the tones are generated from singing bowls, crotales, cymbals and sound plates. Τhe tones and the harmonies are isolated from the continuous vibration created after the hittings, with the help of a mixer in order to control the volumes. The breathings and the tones from Chris’ bass clarinet react with the percussion tones giving the sense of a dialogue between them.
