origami antarktika - academic music from buran - cdr/web album
as presented by ...
details: "This invaluable and rejected recording of prepared piano and feedback clearly shows the origin of the great tradition that has earned Trondheim such status internationally.
It was conceived and performed by Jonas Qvale A196 (prepared piano, microphone/tremolo/speaker setup, Ibanez and Boss digital delay effect pedals, pebbles). This recording contains two public performances of the work held on July 28th, 2001 in a barn in Holmestrand (a village famous for the tunnel leading you around it).
Of special note is the bold use of pebbles tossed onto the strings of the piano in the beginning of both versions. A total disregard of conventional recording techniques has resulted in a rooster crowing, an engaged child audience member, footsteps and intermittent outside traffic noise throughout, making this baffling audio document exciting listening material. There is no end to it. Rhizotto.
The artist came to maturity in the Buran academic circles around the turn of the millenium, and the two recitals captured here are very much products of their time and of that curious scene. Buran is a part of Trondheim inhabited by very old people and younger students, artists and academics. It is also an area close to the more famous "alternative" Svartla'mon."
