various / room 40 - incidental amplifications

Coming from the always-on-point Room40 stable over in sunny Australia, this is one of those rare beasts, a compilation album that actually has a concept and flow. The idea apparently came from Muzak, the soft half-heard renditions of Copacabana we regularly ignore while shopping for frilly pants in the local mall. Lawrence English and Lloyd Barrett asked artists to experiment with these incidental sounds and see if they could come up with a piece of music to represent it, and this compilation is the result. Sound artist Chris Watson starts off proceedings with a gorgeous slice of field recording - jets fly overhead as birds are warbling in the background. It sounds as if you're standing in an abandoned car park, tatty mall decomposing in front of you and weeds protruding through the cracked concrete and perfectly aligns itself with the concept immediately. Elsewhere Terre Thaemlitz contributes 'Millenial Muzak', a recording taken from a Japanese mall (from the sounds of it) with people busying themselves as lewd gangsta rap plays in the background, uncensored and nobody is really paying any attention. Another high point is Blake Stickland's 'Brecker (For Curd Duca)' which abruptly destroys a piece of 'smooth jazz' being played in a busy mall, peppering it with piercing noise and light filters, it's strangely effective. For me this is the ideal compilation, something with a great concept and a point rather than a meaningless collection of tracks, the artists all deliver worthwhile and well thought out pieces and the result is a hugely enjoyable selection of modern musique concrete. Highly recommended.
