Untitled Phenomenas In Concrete

Label: Cave12

Format: CD

Genre: Electronic

In stock


Composed between 2008 and 2011, 'Untitled Phenomenas In Concrete' is a piece made out of 85 HighC/UPIC* sessions and 18 external sounds (recordings of snow falling, bones cracking, magnetic fields and insects). *UPIC is a computerised musical composition tool, devised by the composer Iannis Xenakis. It consists of a digitising tablet linked to a computer, which has a vector display. Interested by Xenakis' approach and wanting to draw the sound before hearing it, Francisco Meirino spent nearly four years composing drawing line by line 'Untitled Phenomenas In Concrete', listening to every line, gradually adding on lines and sounds, erasing, reassembling, gathering and discreetly weaving recorded sounds into the piece to 'humanise' the whole. As a final touch, the piece was transferred on reel-to-reel tape to add some warmth to the cold digital processing of the UPIC. In short, this is a meticulously created album, the result of which is a completely coherent sound arrangement. Made with great care, 'Untitled Phenomenas In Concrete' is a captivating and dense piece, a new gem in the already impressive discography of Francisco Meirino.
