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 we are really deep into the listening of debut album by composer and sound artist Emanuele De Raymondi on New York City label ZeroKilled Music. De Raymondi interprets the evocative improvisations by Turkish virtuoso clarinetist Oguz Buyukberber through mesmerizing electronic manipulations.
The only sound source of the ten tracks that make up the album is Buyukberber's clarinet: the improvisation sessions were recorded by De Raymondi in Berlin in a unique architectural space, with a natural reverberation time of ten seconds: no digital effects or additional instruments were used during the composition. The sound of Buyukberber's clarinet is transformed and stratified by the experimental composer, resulting in a style that cohesively combines electronica, jazz, ambient and minimalism.
