“Against Nature” reviewed by Aural Aggravation

Simon Whetham has a considerable history of taking sound recordings – often environmental sounds – and working them into something unrecognisable, by means of various sonic and software mutations. Against Nature emerged from an exploration of what Whetham describes as ‘errors and failures’, using ‘badly built microphones, over-burdened amplifiers, motors driven by sound impulses, misbehaving […]

“Against Nature” reviewed by Tiny Mix Tapes

If field recordings are often the attempt to freeze-frame nature in all its everlasting purity, then Simon Whetham’s latest album of manipulated ambient is decidedly Against Nature.

“Against Nature” reviewed by Black Audio

New release: Simon Whetham’s “Against Nature”

It’s always a good strategy to open with a salvo of tension, dynamics and volatility. The threat of another will continue to loom throughout the following, lending a disquiet to even the most minimal of passages. Such is the unveiling of these five chapters in a highly refined practice of telescoping sound from the British […]

“Against Nature” reviewed by Le Son du Grisli

Une façon peut-être de s’éloigner du field recording pur… Simon Whetham joue ici contre nature : cinq fois, à partir de sons attrapés en compagnie d’Agder Kunstsenter en Norvège entre octobre et novembre 2013.
