Anne-F Jacques / Elizabeth Millar

amplified objects rotating at different speeds

Anne-F Jacques

http://anne-fff.tumblr.com/

Un inventaire d’objets et de matières avec lesquels l’auteure, l’artiste sonore Anne-F Jacques, fabrique des assemblages sonores et cinétiques. À travers leur poids, leur texture et l’histoire particulière de leur rencontre, elle retrace une petite partie de leur biographie et plonge le lecteur dans un microcosme d’objets têtus. Elle s’intéresse aux choses qui tournent, aux sonorités rugueuses, aux mouvements erratiques, à la construction d’assemblages précaires et idiosyncratiques. Sons et autres trouvailles. Elle vit et travaille à Montréal.

Lefebvre / Strickland

Chris Strickland – Amplified acoustic guitar and filtered field recordings.
Alain Lefebvre – Contact mic, objects and pedal feedback

Alain Lefebvre:
https://kohlenstoffrecords.com/artists/alain-lefebvre/

Alain Lefebvre fait du noise expérimental abstrait/concret avec des objets amplifiés et des appareils lofi qu’il pousse au-delà de leurs fonctions normales. Il s’intéresse à l’utilisation des sons typiquement ”indésirables” comme moyen de remettre en question certaines contraintes esthétiques. Sa musique adopte les courts-circuits, les buzzes 50-60Hz, les décalages de courants continus, les interférences électromagnétiques, les interférences de transducteurs, et autres erreurs analogiques peut-être anonymes. Il fait de la musique expérimentale depuis 2001-2002. En 2011, il se concentre sur l’improvisation, jouant principalement à Montréal, et entreprenant la série de concerts “We are the Drugs” avec Chris Strickland. Son premier album contenant uniquement des morceaux live (“Objects and Electronics”) est sorti en 2012 sur l’étiquette de K.A.N.T. N.A.G.A.N.O (Encodages de l’Oubli). Son plus récent album, “Magic Eye”, assemble six études enregistré en août 2013 (K o h l e n s t o f f records).

Chris Strickland

https://noticerecordings.bandcamp.com/album/excruciating-circumstances-in-the-kingdom-of-ends

Montréal-based composer Chris Strickland searches not for minimalism, but to minimize: technique, narrative, emotion. All recorded live either at CKUT or Espace Project, both located in Montréal, the compositions on Excruciating Circumstances in the Kingdom of Ends reside on a different expressive axis, fingering the raw edges of his sonic ingredients. Field recordings with the flat haze of surveillance footage or the feeling of gazing from afar are interwoven with wobbly but painstaking drone notes, rarely with more than a handful in a single sequence. Unsentimental and even obstinate, there are hard cuts between sections, and—most intriguingly—a playing technique free of both emotional vibrato and focused flatness. Played notes are shaky but not hesitant. Governed pace-wise by strategies of “deliberate uncertainty,” Strickland’s compositions proceed at a walking pace, moved through like green spaces of remote urbanity.
