Download zip file of both tracks.
The first track of this release is a composed soundscape of unprocessed field recordings
dealing with themes of contact, wind, insects and snow.
The second track is considered a societal study - a straight field recording of a bird meeting
at Astra Park, the city center of Sibiu, Romania (jackdaws, ravens, starlings, etc). This
recording is all about the birds, so it is suggested that the listener keep their focus on them
for the first few minutes of the recording. The listener's attention and patience will be greatly
rewarded. All that will be said is that Alfred Hitchcock's film "The Birds" has nothing on this
scenario... Recorded on November 13, 2008, 5:05 pm.
Lasse-Marc Riek is a German sound artist who uses different forms of expression in his
productions. His works are interdisciplinary and can be conceived as groups of works of both
visual art (action and conceptual art) and sound art. His art of sound can be described in
terms such as acoustic ecology, bio acoustics and public recording.
Since 1997, he has been active internationally with exhibitions, concerts, lectures and
projects and has given guest performances in galleries, art museums, churches and
museums. Scholarships and artist-in-residence programs have been realised in Finland,
Poland, France and Africa.
Since 1998 he has been the author of numerous international publications of phonograms.
In 2003 he founded the audio publishing company Gruenrekorder, focusing on
soundscapes, field recordings and electro-acoustic compositions, and in this connection,
acting internationally with artists and scientists.
Since 2006 he's been the member of Klanglandschaft (a soundscape forum).
Since 2008 he's been a founding member and director of Verein zur Förderung von
Phonographie und Experimenteller Musik Frankfurt am Main (Society for the Advancement
of Phonography and Experimental Music).
