Aufnahmen fr die Installation names PICTURE POWDERHORN dieses Klangknstlers, welche die Klnge in und um Getreide-Silos zum Fokus hat: rauhe industrielle Maschinen-Klnge sind hier ebenso prsent wie field recordings von Latino-Tanzmusik, Kinderliedern, alte Fiedel-Melodien & vokales Material...
Ein obskures & fast schon Hrspiel-artiges musique concrete Portrit des post-industriellen mittleren Westen der USA.

Lauren Weinger's album Silo is drawn from the soundtrack of a large-scale installation project, Picture Powderhorn, which was 1st performed around the grain silos in Minneapolis, in August of 2000. Featuring aerialists covered in mics and recorders ascending and descending the conical towers, historically resonant fiddle solos, sounds of children's songs, all interspersed with Latin dance music. Also included is the voice of the silo manager recounting the intricacies of making bread as the haunting echoes of rolling stock reverberate throughout the building. A provocative slice of musique concrete, a textured narrative that explores the form of the post-industrial Midwest." [ReR]
