1. Stellan Veloce ::: Anyone Can Play Mouth Harp
The harmonica is seen both as a toy and as a very expressive musical instrument, depending who you are asking. Its inexpensiveness and egalitarian aura is opposed to the rich chords it produces and its subtle microtonal and melismatic improvisation possibilities. Anyone Can Play Mouth Harp is a piece for custom-tuned, diatonic harmonicas.
Recorded live in Berlin on 2nd of May 2021 by Stellan Veloce.
2. Yannick Guédon ::: a s p e _
How do we listen, how do we scrutinize the interior of one note? How can sounds heard inside the note of one vocalist create a scale of notes to be sung by other vocalists? Here, we attempt to sing what we have heard, what we hear, what we are going to hear.
This release acts as documentation of a performance we consider to be the first step in our ongoing research to further explore the potential of the score.
Performed by Catherine Lamb, Rebecca Lane, and Yannick Guédon.
Recorded live in Berlin on 30th of April 2021 by Adam Asnan.
The pieces were performed on the occasion of the festival Oscillation ::: Tuned Circuits 2021, radio-broadcast live from Brussels.
Oscillation Festival is a project by Q‑O2 werkplaats.
