$ 13.99


Release Date: 01/01/00

Structured Composition, Sound Design, Noise Elements and Psycho Babble

Stimuli picks up where Brian Eno's Music For Airports, Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music, and Terry Riley's In C left off. Boston-area composers Lauri des Marais and Erik Lindgren dovetail their individual musical strengths and concoct a radically fresh approach that integrates: Structured Composition, Sound Design Noise Elements and Psycho Babble. On this 79-minute disc are four sonically innovative and conceptually inventive Stories In Sound, a phrase coined by Lauri to describe her work. Works include: the five-movement 'X-Opera' Rude Awakenings for trio, phone answering machine messages and synthesized stream (libretto by Simon & Schuster author Pagan Kennedy); The Far Field/Inputs, which blends found sound and prepared piano with radical teutonic underscoring; the mood-shifting 13 Transitions {excerpts] for voice, synthesizer and guitar with shades of Nico, plus des Marais' ethereal 22-minute audio essay Backdrops 3: In Accepted Translations, in 4 Parts. Des Marais has studied the practice of Deep Listening and has performed with Pauline Oliveros and is currently collaborating with Richard Pinhas. For twenty years, Lindgren has been a member of the modern music ensemble Birdsongs of the Mesozoic and runs Arf! Arf!, a prolific reissue label dedicated to the preservation of '60s Garage/Psychedelic rock and 'Incredibly Strange Music.' Stimuli contains unpredictable music that truly unfolds in strange and mysterious ways. CD features guest appearances by Birdsongs' saxophonist/flautist Ken Field, Alloy Orchestra/Binary System's Roger Miller, and guitarist Susan DeLeo.
