Music For Installations is the place where sound meets space! Imagine being in a dark rectangular room with speakers in the four corners and only you as an object, absorbing the sound. Catching these sounds leads to sonic landscapes and active soundworlds. The music fits perfectly in empty places, dark rooms and can be the soundtrack of your artistic installations.
This is the basic principle of Music For Installations. Life is a stream of sounds. Most people don't hear it and let it pass. But if you capture that flow of chaotic patterns that surrounds us, you can find answers in what is moving around us, what our future could be, where we are going to.
Music For Installations has always been observing the soundworld of daily life, whether it is out in the outback or in the heart of downtown. The studio is ideal to sit back in your own therapeutic space and reflect on things going by or the feelings you have experienced in your weird interaction with the rest of the world. But actually, any good room or any place in the world you can call home, would fit the requirements.
"The first things I remember are sounds. When I listen to people I don't hear words but melodies. When I stand in a room, I enjoy the way the music makes her way in the empty space around me."
Yassur parle en concrete uses a field recording taken on top of an active volcano, on which was set released a battery of effects that were feeded back into the recording. Virtual echo chambers, feedback processing, distortion and off course some way-behind-delay’s are on the battlefield dancing together in the real rain of fire spitted out of the Volcano which you can here if you pay attention to the recording. For the locals it is God that speaks, so the circle with the late Pierre Henry, as God of Sound, is completed.
The meeting of the sounds give a kind of musical hum, which could be a trademark of Music for Installations who always seeks to a point of momentarily equilibrium where everything seems to resonate in tone before dispersing again into disharmony.
Thank you, Mr. Henry, for opening eyes and changing ears.
Created in November 2017. Original field recording from February 2006.
