“Against Nature” reviewed by Neural

Whether is an experimenter known for his releases on Entr’acte, Helen Scarsdale, Line and baskaru. The field recordist is accustomed to calibrating addictive acoustic explorations of space and resonant objects. The sounds in Against Nature were generated during a residency with Kunstsenter Agder, in Kristiansand, Norway. There are five tracks. The longer ones (the first, […]

“Against Nature” reviewed by Revue & Corrigée

De l’enregistrement comme matériau. Pour cet artiste sonore britannique, l’utilisation de l’enregistrement dans tous ses états, même les plus extrêmes, est un credo. Allant jusqu’à leurs défauts, et l’échec de leur reproduction. en plus de leur utilisation dans un cadre artistique, il lie son travail à la pédagogie et réalise de nombreux ateliers d’écoute et […]

“Against Nature” reviewed by Dark Entries

De beweging van de natuur vastleggen lijkt wel een menselijke oerdrang: Landschapschilderijtjes, ellendige new age-cd’s met kabbelende riviertjes of ontspannende onweersgeluiden, indrukwekkende waterbeelden van Jacques Cousteau en in het gruwelijkste geval geval een bloederig jachttafereel. De artiesten in kwestie lijken echter meestal te vergeten dat ze vanaf het moment van hun vastleggen van de natuur […]

“Against Nature” reviewed by Bad Alchemy

Sehr schön umraunt Jim Haynes, der ja auf Helen Scarsdale Agency Simon Whetham’s “From The Mouths of Clay” (2014) herausgebracht hat, mit “loom… unease… carcinogenic… confusion” die unheimliche Suggestivität, mit der der Brite sich dem Unbekannten annähert. Ausgerechnet in Kristiansand fand Whetham im Herbst 2013 die Sounds, aus denen er Against Nature konstruierte. Er bezieht […]

“Against Nature” reviewed by Sonic Seducer

Der Soundkünstler Simon Whetham befasst sich auf seinem dritten Album für Crónica mit einer (In)Fragestellung seiner Arbeitsmethoden. Hierzu sucht er Orte mit interessanter Akustik auf und erzeugt dort mittels Elektronik oder auf herkömmlichem Weg Klänge. Soweit nicht ungewöhnlich; Whetams Fragestellung zielt jedoch dahin, inwieweit seine Intervention den Ort verändert oder gar zerstört und sich somit […]

“Against Nature” reviewed by KindaMuzik

Stijf van de schrik overeind schieten, met de stuipen op het lijf gejaagd. De gordijnen in of een snoekduik makend naar de stereo om de kwelling de nek om te draaien… Het kan verkeren met Against Nature van Simon Whetham. De verzameling fieldrecordings van de maximale noisy soort wordt dan ook niet samengebald gebracht of […]
