Listening Back – a Mixtape

Sounds of 80s experimental pop that echo Stockhausen’s electronic works from the 50s. The test equipment used to create those first studies, revived to once again create music today. Environmental sounds from South Africa recreated in the WDR studio in Cologne in the 70s. Minimal music from the WDR studio in Cologne in the 70s. Pianos in Italy. Songs from Iran over the shortwaves. Vibrations ‘in the air’, fusing together.

Listening back. To a take, a recording. One’s own. Someone else’s. Like the old process of developing a photograph. Or a print. How did it turn out? What was ‘captured’. Forms gradually emerge. Details can slowly be made out. It’s not the past. It’s now.
