Cem Güney, "Praxis", Crónica Electronica, 2009


Cem Güney, "Praxis", Crónica Electronica, 2009

Cem Güney es un artista sonoro de Turquía quien comenzó con el jazz, tocando el saxo. Estudió música en California y desde1994 en un DJ.
“Praxis”es su álbum debut album en el sello portugués Cronica Eelectronica, además de una aparición en la compilación “V/A Mus*****c”, (Cronica 2008).
Güney trabaja tanto en los sonidos sintéticos como grabados como material que son procesados por un software musical.
“A Phonetics Theme” abre con una paleta de voces grabadas. “Impulse” en tanto se construye de pequeños sonidos digitales, mientras que “Undulations (dedicated to Janek Schaefer)” es un loop de una sección de cuerdas que cambia luego a ondulantes tonos que penetran ambientes oscuros.
“Factitious Phobia” es una combinación de sonidos electroacústicos, voces grabadas, soterradas canciones del medio oriente y un piano que irrumpe con notas armonías, en un contexto bizarrro de sonidos abstractos.
“Praxis” está compuesto por microsonidos digitales, algunos como clave Morse e identificables retazos.
“Behold Now Bhikkus, The Sounds of Nada Yoga” considera la meditación a través del sonido y hay algunas vocales con las que trabaja procesándolas.

Cem Güney is a Turkish-born sound artist who started within the jazz music field playing the saxo. He studied music in California and he’s a DJ since 1994.
“Praxis” is the debut album on Portuguese Cronica Electronica label, furthermore a compilation appearance on “V/A Mus….c”, (Cronica, 2008).
Güney works both synthetic and recorded sound as source material which processed by software.
“A Phonetics Theme” opens with a wide range of recorded voices. “Impulse” is built out of tiny digital sounds, while “Undulations (dedicated to Janek Schaefer)” is a loop of a string section that changed into flickering tones penetrating dark moods.
“Factitious Phobia” is a combination of electroacoustic sounds, recorded voices and underrated Middle Eastern music. The piano deliver harmonic notes which sound quite strange alongwith such abstract sounds.
“Praxis” is composed by digital microsounds, some of them Morse like and unidentifiable snippets.
“Behold Now Bhikkus, The Sounds of Nada Yoga” comprised the meditation through sound and there are some vowels with especial characteristics and meanings worked by Güney as processed voices.
