These are the two Interludes from the soon to be released tape and fanzine collaboration of Ivette Díaz Espín (la raya ilustrada) and Heinzel (Fließgewässer). Mixing poetry and improvised experimental ambient music, released on tape, wrapped up in a small fanzine with the poems and illustration.
“Besides our voices we mainly used a Casio SA-1, looper, trumpet, violin, contact microphone, cirrus spatial-temporal modifier and some field recordings.”
Fließgewässer is an intentionally mysterious, playful ambient/experimental music project. ¿Es ist höchste Zeit? are all analog lo-fi recordings of guitar, organ, harmonica and voices using just a Zoom H4N recorder. The guitar riffs and harmonica sounds I have recorded in Berlin in September 2018 without having thought of a purpose for them at that point. In essence this recording is a collage of these recordings with overdubbings of organ improvisations and voices made in October 2018.
Involved in¿Es ist höchste Zeit?: Orestis – text and voice on Δίψα για αίμα = Greed. Silvia – voice on Realisation. Heinzel – guitar, organ, harmonica, remaining voices and field recordings.
I’ve uploaded three ambient impros on a new soundcloud page:
Winter Ambient 1 is an improvisation with a Korg Minilogue, I’ve had borrowed from Rafel (thanks again!) from February 2019. Besides that you can hear some balcony recordings playing back construction work sounds.
Winter Ambient 2 is an improvisation with a Korg Prologue from February 2019. Besides that you can hear some recordings of waves at los gigantes and from our balcony.
Winter Ambient 3 is an improvisation with a Korg Prologue from February 2019. Besides that you can hear some recordings from the Anemone Geysers and the Grand Geyser, which are in the public domain as “Yellowstone National Park Sound Library” by “National Park Service” and recordings from our living room.
