Autumn specials of Sonic Phenomena

In September we’ll present a special concert with the veteran of improvised avant-electronics Max Loderbauer and spiritus movens of Warsaw-based label Recognition Jacek Sienkiewicz. The meeting between the artists takes place not only on the level of investigating pure sound and building complex structures, but also on the level of fascination with mountainside aura. In October though together with the Theatre Confrontations Festival, Sonic Phenomena invited Tim Hecker to Lublin. The performance of the award-winning Canadian composer and sound artist will be the last event of the festival’s jubilee edition.

24 September 2015, 8pm
Centre for Culture in Lublin, Sala Widowiskowa
ticket: 10 zł

“Ridges” is a result of a creative encounter between veteran of improvised avant-electronics Max Loderbauer (among others, co-creator of Sun Electric, member of Moritz von Oswald Trio, and frequent collaborator of Ricardo Villalobos) and spiritus movens of Warsaw-based label Recognition Jacek Sienkiewicz. Meeting takes place not only on the level of investigating pure sound and building complex structures, but also on the level of fascination with mountainside aura and mystique that is common to both artists: Alps (Loderbauer) and Tatra (Sienkiewicz), as well as with the vocal cultures of communities inhabiting theese areas. Deeply introspective and individualistic confrontation between two peer sensibilities and imaginative worlds gave birth to two separate compositions in the vein of contemplative electronic music at it purest.

Tim Hecker is a Juno award-winning Canadian composer and sound artist. He has spent the last decade inhabiting a unique intersection between noise, dissonance, and melody. In his varied and celebrated works, digital and organic sources tightly intertwine. The result is a hybrid aesthetic that recalls electronic abstraction and psychedelic minimalism. Hecker purposefully obfuscates the clear tonal distinctions of traditional instrumentation, preferring to cultivate enigmatic, uneasy soundscapes. The beauty and crush of Hecker’s sonically processed noise has been compared to “tectonic color plates” and “cathedral electronic music.” As the New York Times put it, he plays “foreboding, abstract pieces in which static and sub-bass rumbles open up around slow-moving notes and chords, like fissures in the earth waiting to swallow them whole.”
