Abstract Audio Article in “kwatarese”* recorded “LIVE” 28th April 202(1) during dusk starting at 8:30 PM (time-zone Ireland, eastern Clare) by Slavek Kwi, correspondent for alfa_AAzine.
* abstract multi-dimensional meta-language resemblant to human concept of “music” using the surrounding audio-environment as interface (WSi = weather sensitive installation) of connection in between transmitting and intercepting parties simultaneously. “Kwatarese” is more focused on sharing the experience rather than information, looking for creating irrational sense of balance and resonance in between participating elements.
Set up for recording:
WSi: various chimes (metal, bamboo, polystyrene foam), sound-flags (various grains of plastic and aluminium foil), gong, airharp - including sounds of environment, wildlife and human generated sounds.
Recording interface: stereo microphone Rode NT4 and mono DPA 4060 microphones placed about 20m from each other outside, contact microphones Stille&Klang attached to gong and airharp leading via mixing desk Yamaha EFX8 to Sound Devices 722.
Tuning-in tonal instrument: “kwatar” (4-string fret-less electric guitar with reverb'n'echoes)
(Note, please, there is no other post-production except selection of segments.)
