Lark [markings] now available!

Lark [markings] is an album of exploratory duos from woodwind player Paulo Chagas (Portugal) and ‘mosesa 2′ inventor/performer Wilhelm Matthies (USA). Each artist composed a graphic score for multiple recorded interpretations; these tracks are complimented by free improvisations.

The mosesa 2 (shown below) is a one-stringed instrument with variable bows & resonators, providing Matthies with a surprisingly large palette to paint sound with…a good thing given Chagas’ expansive and virtuosic instrumental range. The collaborative result is a playful, violent, warm, haunting, humorous, menacing, and surreal. It’s a musical funhouse. Available as a name-your-price download from the Spectropol Bandcamp site.

new Vincent Berger Rond: Elle avait raison Hathor

Out today (4/3). Inspired by mythology, this collection explores notions of womanhood. With the Quebec-based composer’s characteristic “spasmacousmatic” cutup textures guiding form, this is an electroacoustic chamber music that is both disorienting and utterly engaging.
