||Small Life Form - Late
MP3 EP 2016 | Silber 238
3 tracks, 30 minutes
Small Life Form returns
for Christmas with an EP of electroacoustics & cheap synths built
into sonic walls. The first two pieces (“Days Late” & “A Ride
Home”) are built from a concept Small Life Form has been trying to
bring to fruition for four years, using an optical theremin &
Christmas tree lights. Why did it take four years? Because the
Christmas tree lights were making the theremin make an unpleasantly
high-pitched noise & it took a long time to figure out how to
change that. In the end the answer was putting pieces of a broken beer
bottle over the optical sensor. “Days Late” takes the theremin &
layers on cheap synths to make a piece typical of the Small Life Form
live set while “A Ride Home” takes just the theremin & slows it
down as something to something meditative. “A Request from Dad” is a
piece written at the request of Bryce Eiman for 919Noise’s Christmas
Showcase based on some recent shows featuring music boxes & the
only sound sources are music boxes run through SLF’s standard effect
rig. So sit back & let the aggressive ambient ring in your holidays.
