Delighted to present a very special, brand new 8-channel piece from Cam Deas!
Cam Deas is a musician and sound artist based in London. His work is not subject to straightforward categorisation, with output ranging from solo acoustic guitar exploration through live electro-acoustic performance, to pure synthesis and computer generative music.
In 2018 he released Time Exercises on The Death of Rave, consisting of five works for synthesiser and computer, his first full length purely electronic work. The pieces explore polytempos and relative ratios between pitch and rhythm in a dense electronic space, described as “disembodied music playing out a thrilling dramaturgy and syntax of alien dissonance and disorienting rhythmic resolution”.
Billy Steiger was born in Howth on the 16th December, 1986. Now he plays the violin.
“Then he sat down by a pond and began to play a tune. As he played, the most extraordinary thing happened. One by one the fish in the pond began to jump out and fly about in the air. And what is more, they were all different colours and they were singing to the music.”
Patrick, Quentin Blake.
"Whilst turning in old analogue radios, I was made aware of how white noise could be used for a different sound source. Frequencies, especially when they are of a radio station has a different dimension to your listening experience
My interests in experimental sound making, arises from going around and saying 'what if'. I found cooking implements such as pans and wooden spoons can produce interesting sounds. If I am in a cooking shop with pans, I tend to explore what they sound like.
Combining radios with cooking implements can result with innovative and original ways of using these mundane household objects."
