Boomkat Product Review:
This live set, recorded at Tokyo's Super Deluxe venue in October of last year, is the first long-form release from field recordist Jana Winderen. The music here is assembled from various auditory documents gathered from research trips, all treated as improvisational material, and morphed into elaborate sound collages. It's very unusual to hear such meticulous and beautifully detailed environmental recordings developed into creative electroacoustic compositions - you'd normally only hear this kind of revelatory sound matter on a Chris Watson record, presented as naturalistically and as faithfully as possible, but Winderen is far less reverent of her material, shaping it into new sonic environments, rendered with an evocative sense of 'betweenness', as if straddling a divide between the realm of imaginary auditory topographies and more recognisable, tangible locations. Highly recommended.
