“Try to imagine an astonishing reversal of the traditional widespread subservience of sound to story-telling: instead of sound effects providing realism to a narrative, the open shell of an apparent narrative becoming sound work… or perhaps even a new form of weird experimental music that only requires a willingness to listen to the actual sonic matter itself, precisely when it appears to be something else.”

I used the track as part of an installation, playing it through speakers consisting of different – sized tubes made of different metals, and other sound bodies, to merge with surrounding sounds and noises. the original recording was remixed for listening through a regular sound system. please adjust volume as low as surround noise level!

Lives and works in Paris, his work is focused principally on two topics. Firstly an acoustic approach to the instrument through different collaborations in the field of improvised music and free-jazz (Die Hochstapler, Actuum). Secondly, work on the amplification of instruments (“close miking”) with the aim of creating the illusion of an electric or electronic “machine instrument” (solo, HiFi LoNoise).
He will be performing an acoustic solo set at Emitter Micro 2013, May 11th at Ausland.

Rinus van Alebeek (1956, Heerlen, The Netherlands) is a writer who uses his (environmental) recordings on tape to narrate a story. During the nineties he published two books (pseud. Philip Markus) in his native country. The first novel (De Weg naar Oude God) won the prestigious Geert Jan Lubberhuizen Prijs, a yearly award for the best first novel.
An accidental encounter with electronic and avant garde music in the year 2000 at the Lem festival in Barcelona, and an introduction to the cassette culture gave way to his further artistic development. In the first decade of this century van Alebeek made a thorough research on how to make or manipulate recordings. Thanks to a great number of concerts, sometimes an average of ten in a month, he developed an approach of which people say it is ‘ between noise and pure poetry.’
‘Rinus Van Alebeek is a peculiar observer of reality and an artist who instinctively transforms lo-fi tape recordings into evocative sound poems, being able to create a “détachement” towards the used media, which is a characteristic of the most original artists.’ (Luis Costa, president of Binaural and Associação Cultural de Nodar)

Barbara Lazara is a performer/voice artist based in Mexico City. She has been working on the relation between body, voice and space, using choreography, microphones and natural corporeal resonances.
With her solo project ‘Aurora Yaqui’, she uses voice loops and the acoustic characteristics of the space to create drones, natural overtones aswell as audio feedback, playing with different voice forms and amplification. Lázara has been giving solo performances and workshops in Mexico and often performing Europe in collaboration with theatre artists and choreographers. Her works have been released by Staalplaat (GER), Volta (MEX), and broadcast on Antenas Intervenciones (ECUADOR).
