More Info

Typisch ober-obskures Konzept bei diesem neuen Soundscape des schwedischen Klangknstlers: Als Grundlage dienten Feld-Aufnahmen die auf der Spitze eines 100stckigen Hochhauses in Chicago gemacht wurden, spter wurden elektronische Krhen dazugemischt, das alles in ein knarzendes, hchst pulsierendes Fliessmusster gegossen... One-tracker, 40 minutes.

In August 2003, Lampo invited Swedish artist CM von hausswolff to do a project specific to Chicago. Intrepid traveler that he is, hausswolff ascended to the top of the 100-story John Hancock Building and collected sounds from the open-air observation deck. While taking in the sights, he recorded building vibrations, passing breezes and overheard speech from tourists. Later, in his Stockholm studio, he added a series of feedback rotations to suggest crows (guardians or enemies?) encircling the conceptual tower. The result is this belching, super dense, low-end drone work. hausswolff's new piece is his rumination on security and paranoia. What makes us safe? Is it better to dwell in a cave or in a skyscraper penthouse? Could be another lecture on sound and architecture. We hear a secret gastrointestinal message. Say what?! [label description]
