More Info

Wieder grossartiges minimal-atmosphrisches Installations-Material von diesem amerikanischen Klangknstler !

This is the third release on the Semishigure label that specializes in music & sound works related to films or installations from the visual arts. Light Forms is the new album from Calfornia based musician/artist Steve Roden which contains two pieces that are constructed from the sound material of two installations that he made in Germany. Both of these pieces started with the same sound: a group of small glass light bulbs handled acoustically. These acoustic sounds were then processed electronically and for this cd version put together into two beautiful, delicate and quiet compositions that are highlights in the already impressive oeuvre of this artist. Truth Is the Bell was created for an evening of performances in Saarbruecken related to the theme of light. Bell Is The Truth is the soundtrack of an filmwork installation realized in Berlin in the Singuhr-Hoergalerie. Contains a wonderful 12-booklet with photos of the installation and the film.
