More Info

" ʻSelected Realitiesʼ is a collection of captured, spatialised and composed sounds as discovered within unique sonic environments by australian sound artist Tessa Elieff AKA Tattered Kaylor. Each composition presents the observer with the audible identities of a time/place/space Ц as interpreted by Kaylor through immersive sound composition. The works provide a passage by which listeners experience an alternative to our everyday realities, causing us to question our observations we regard as being absolute.

Spaces portrayed include underground drainways, Inner city multi-level stairwells and hidden basements Ц housing the mechanical organs as used to transform theatre configurations. Each space was chosen not only for the unique sounds as to be found within their boundaries, but also for their provocation of sound Ц the ways in which their architecture manipulates and interacts with the physicality of the sound wave. Sonic phenomena such as standing wave forms, resonances, beating and flutter are all objects of desire within the recordings and sounds have been captured and spatialised so as to portray these unique artefacts. Characteristics of environments are presented using blunt gestures. The visceral qualities of sounds are neither exaggerated nor swept aside but rather - brought to light - their brutal exposure proving to support the sonic reveal.

Recording methods utilised in the capture of the sounds include Mono, Stereo, MS and self developed surround-recording techniques. Assorted microphones are placed in nonconventional configurations and calibrated individually so as to each present their own recorded sounds as equal to the others Ц in volume and in sensitivity. Where most audio purists insist on uniformity in microphone (brand and model), Kaylor indulges and exploits the attributes each microphone possess, working by the same ethos as is abided by throughout the selection of each unique space.
The official european release presentation of MOOZAK #005 will be held at the second edition of MOOZAK FESTIVAL on September 21st/22nd, 2012. Tessa Elieff aka Tatterred Kaylor will present a special 5.1 surround sound concert which will definetly sharpen all listeners perception. MOOZAK #005 will be available at the festival's merchandise table in a special package (festivalpass + release)." [label info]
