ANDRE GONCALVES & KENNETH KIRSCHNER
Resonant Objects

[SIRR, www.sirr-ecords.com]

Recorded at the infamous Experimental Intermedia Foundation in NYC in 2005, "Resonant Objects" is a new multi-media project from two leading experimental music gurus Andre Goncalves and Kenneth Kirschner. What happened during the recording is six objects were suspended from the ceiling at different heights. Each object was made from a globe of white glass with one microphone, speaker and one electrical lamp each. Each of these speakers was then connected to a computer that triggered six different frequencies - one frequency per speaker. In turn, these frequencies were turned to the objects' resonance frequencies causing them to resonate. The resonating overtones are rich, though in fact very little happens on the surface of the recording. It's as if for a whole duration of the movement, sound stood deadly still. The variations that occur are buried deep under the ear-pinching sound, beneath what some will cause noise. It's there you'll find the exhausting and humbling beauty. The audio mass moves slowly in one direction and seems to be pushed by nothing at all. Pervasively hypnotic quality is heard throughout, which in fact can lull the listener into an inadvertent state of slumber. A sense of thick tension and deep drama is evident in every little nook and cranny of the piece. It's as if the two composers wanted to keep everyone present at the very edges of their seats for the entire duration. For those of us who were not lucky enough to be at this momentous installation, I recommend you sneak a peak at this brief clip: www.undotw.org/ctrl/fotos/xtras/resonantobjects.htm
