Sometimes We All Disappear

Format: CD

Genre: Sound Art

In stock

A restrained electronic improvisation from the duo of Jamie Drouin on suitcase modular & portable radio, and Lance Austin Olsen on amplified objects and audio cassettes, utlitizing space, isolated and connected events, and the listener's own environment.

A beautiful example of restrained electronic improvisation by the established duo of Jamie Drouin (suitcase modular & portable radio) and Lance Austin Olsen (amplified objects and audio cassettes). Recorded in Victoria, West Canada, in 2012 shortly before Jamie Drouin moved to Berlin, the duo revisited the material early in 2014 and reduced it to a set of 'independent, small assemblages' spread across periods of silence, producing a music that is set well aside from conventional ideas of performance. 'The intimate sounds exist partway between isolated and connected events, with the listener's environment asserting an almost equal role in defining the experience.'-Another Timbre


"The Harmonics of Real Strings is amazing, in the original sense of the word—it is packed full of moments that cause genuine amazement. Yet the simplicity of its conception and execution are both breathtakingly audacious, to the extent that describing it risks making it sound mundane. Nonetheless, here goes. The album consists of four realisations of the title composition by John Lely, played unaccompanied on cello by Anton Lukoszevieze, the founder and leader of the group Apartment House. Each realisation is a prolonged glissando along the full length of one bowed string, from the top down to the bridge, using light finger pressure (also known as "harmonic" pressure). As a cello has four strings, there are four realisations, one per string." extract from  AllaboutJazz
