|debut solo release from english computer-music composer joe gilmore (under his given, at least) ; a set of 5 pieces sourced to improvisation(s), deftly assembled into ringing, detail-heavy clusters of digital sound.|
i haven’t made it all the way through a disc of non-hecker contemporary computer music in a while; yet i’ve been compelled to give this a number of spins this morning alone. excellent stuff.
«on quasi-convergence and quiet spaces»
joe gilmore // computer
«on quasi-convergence and quiet spaces» is assembled from a series of edited solo computer improvisations executed between 2002-04. the direct-to-disk recordings were often by-products of custom generative and performance-based patches developed for group improvisations. in december 2006 these recordings were revisited after producing similar soundfiles for a site-specific performance exploring the acoustic properties of the holy trinity church in leeds (uk). the material from these sessions was edited and shaped into a coherent whole during january 2007. the work explores the relationship between self and group (other); improvisation and composition at different temporal and physical locations. «on quasi-convergence and quiet spaces» consists of five focused, evolving pieces, which combine rich textural swathes of sound and intricate shimmering tones with dark, organic abstract structures.
joe gilmore is a sound artist and graphic designer living in england. he has been working with sound since 1994, composing works for cd, performance and installation. his work has been published on numerous labels including 12k/line, alku, fällt and entr'acte. he is co-founder of rand()%, an automated internet radio station which streams real-time algorithmic music.
