Some call it sound-art, new music, research sounds, acoustic experimentations or liminal sounds, we just call them Pepite, golden nuggets: tips on sound research, precious bits of our programming. Each week we select few Pepite and highlight them into our free from streaming.
This week, as many other times before, our Pepite series collects sounds in which the landscape and natural elements meet the electronic world and different fields of sound research. Some are soundscaping works, others are pieces in which the natural element becomes an instrument itself, ready to be played. Just one twenty-eight minutes long track that takes the listener into unheard marine scapes.
Maritime by Fires Were Shot.
Fires Were Shot are an amazing instrumental duo from Texas, United States. Their sound can be categorized as textural, guitar driven ambient music. Maritime, at over twenty eight minutes, takes you on a journey out to sea and back. Field recordings of the ocean are quickly engulfed by layer upon layer of guitar drones, delay and plucking. While out in the waters surrounded by the deep, you find yourself at last. This is melodic acoustic drone that should be held up right next to the very best.
