Zwei grossartige drone-artige musique-concrete Stcke der Schwedin HANNA HARTMAN, bei Longitude mit beeindruckendem Klang-Material aufgenommen auf Segelbooten, bei Cratere bestehend aus (u.a.) : Atmen, Rauschen, Donnern, Vulcan-Granular-Sounds.... to discover !! (Sie bekam brigens 2005 den Karl-Sczuka-Preis fr eine andere Komposition, als Nachfolgerin von u.a. ASMUS TIETCHENS!)

The second release of the year on the Komplott label is two pieces by sound artist Hanna Hartman. Until now the two compositions of the album,/ Longitude 013 26' E / and / Cratere,/ which were originally commissioned pieces for the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation and DeutschlandRadioBerlin, have only been available to the public as radio broadcasts. The music is not dependent on the medium of radio however, but consists of concrete sounds composed as independent pieces. The material of the piece Cratere partly consists of recordings of the Italian volcano Etna, whereas much of the material on Longitude 013 26' E - a longitude which runs through Berlin, Kap Arkona and the Baltic Sea - was recorded on sailing boats. The album cover is to be interpreted as a commentary between map and terrain, an abstraction which points to the difference between the origin of the sounds and its musical form. The terrain can be conceived through the map, the map through the knowledge and experiences which arise from the relation between the two. Hanna Hartman has received several awards for her music such as the recent Svenska Frfattarfrbundet Radiopris (Swedish Writer Associations Radio Award) 2004 and the Karl-Sczuka Prize 2005. She will be presenting a sound installation at the GAS Festival (Gteborg Art Sounds, 1-8 October 2005). Longitude / Cratere will be released on September 23. [label description]
