Vier super-minimale und recht trockene drones dieses inzwischen in der Schweiz ansssigen Klangknstlers, der wie z.B. ALVIN LUCIER den Raum als Instrument benutzt...

'miramar' features new pieces recorded live in studio using analogue synthesizer, floor tom and small cymbals. Recorded with eight different room microphones, the room being extremely large, with 20-meter high ceilings. Each room microphone picked up a different frequency range, depending on its placement and how the room's resonant frequency mixed with what I was playing. In addition to analogue synthesizer and percussion, the room itself was thus the third instrument Jason Kahn used on this recording. Jason Kahn was born in New York, grew up in Los Angeles, moved to Berlin in 1990. He now lives in Zrich. His audio work is a mix of electronic and acoustic sound sources, produced with minimal percussion, laptop or analogue synthesizer. In recent years he has also created several sound installations. He started the cd label cut in 1998 [label description]
