hanging out with audiophiles

Sep 16, 2020

Welcome to EP 72 where I’m joined by Olivier Alary and Berlin-based composer Johannes Malfatti as we discuss the making of their new collaborative album ‘u,i’ 

A remarkably timely release that strikes a powerful resonance with our recently heightened experiences of connection and isolation under pandemic conditions. ‘u, i ’ was recorded over VOIP (voice over internet protocol), using the technology as both creative tool and conceptual frame. 

Fascinated by the way technology materializes memory, and by “the sound of its failure, pushed to its limits and breaking apart”, they suggest that their sound here “might be described as ‘Hauntological music 2.0’, as it has a certain ghostly melancholia and foregrounds an awareness of the medium transforming what you hear.”

Release date for u,i is 25th Sep 2020

I trust you’ll follow this link the label to find out more :)
