Chris Watson / Georgia Rodgers | "Notes from the Forest Floor / Line of Parts LP SN Variations | 2020

Chris Watson fue miembro fundador en 1973 de la icónica banda experimental de Sheffield, Cabaret Voltaire. Desde entonces ha desarrollado un interés particular por grabar sonidos de la vida salvaje de animales y hábitats de todo el mundo, convirtiéndose en uno de los más importantes Field Recordist.

Georgia Rodgers es una compositora de música instrumental electronica cuyo trabajo está centrado en las texturas y los aspectos espaciales del sonido.

“Notes From The Forest Floor" compuesto por Chris Watson y "Line Of Parts" de Georgia Rodgers, fueron originalmente instalaciones multicanal.

"Notes From The Forest Floor" se estrenó en julio de 2015 en el ICA de Londres como parte de un evento nocturno dedicado a la obra del compositor italiano Giacinto Scelsi. Esta composición Watson la grabó en la Reserva del Bosque Tropical, La Selva, Costa Rica, el 11 de diciembre de 2019, donde capturó el sonido ambiente y el de los insectos.

"Line Of Parts" se estrenó originalmente en el Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival en 2019 como parte del proyecto Programa de Desarrollo Profesional de Huddersfield para Compositoras de Música Electrónica. Esta composición se realizó junto con el Huddersfield Immersive Sound System (HISS), utilizando su red de 48 canales y 66 altavoces. Este trabajo se compone de grabaciones de campo realizadas en Cairngorms y el norte de Londres, ondas sinusoidales y voz.

En “Notes From…” Watson captura la esencia de la vida salvaje de aquella selva. Junto al sonidos de insectos, grillos, pájaros, monos, emerge el sonido gutural despavorido de algún animal que hace más inquietante la escucha, mientras como telón de fondo se aprecian sonidos electrónicos intermitentes. En tanto en "Line Of Parts", el repiqueteo del agua sobre algún techo de metal se mezcla con los sonidos de insectos y gansos. Luego ondas sinusoidales se despliegan en el espacio como un drone eterno y finaliza con las gotas golpeando sobre el metal. El ambiente es frío, oscuro y silencioso.

Chris Watson was a founding member in 1973 of the iconic Sheffield experimental band Cabaret Voltaire. Since then he has developed a particular interest in recording sounds of wildlife from animals and habitats around the world, becoming one of the most important Field Recordists.

Georgia Rodgers is an electronic instrumental music composer whose work focuses on the textures and spatial aspects of sound.

"Notes From The Forest Floor" composed by Chris Watson and Georgia Rodgers "Line Of Parts" were originally multi-channel installations.

"Notes From The Forest Floor" premiered in July 2015 at ICA London as part of an evening event dedicated to the work of Italian composer Giacinto Scelsi. This composition was recorded by Watson in La Selva Tropical Rainforest Reserve, Costa Rica, 11th December 2019, where he captured the wild life and other environmental sounds.

"Line Of Parts" was originally premiered at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in 2019 as part of the Huddersfield Professional Development Programme for Female Composers of Electronic Music project. This composition was made together with the Huddersfield Immersive Sound System (HISS), using its network of 48 channels and 66 speakers. This work consists of field recordings made in the Cairngorms and North London, sine waves and voice.

On “Notes From…” Watson captures the essence of the wild life of that tropical forest. Along with the sounds of insects, crickets, birds, monkeys, emerges the terrified guttural sound of some animal that makes listening more disturbing, while intermittent electronic sounds are appreciated as a backdrop. On "Line Of Parts", the hit of the water on a metal roof is mixed with the sounds of insects and geese. Then sine waves unfold in space like an eternal drone, ending with the drops hitting metal. The environment is cold, dark and silent.
