Valentina Villarroel ~ Mares

Valentina Villarroel is one of the most unassuming artists we’ve even encountered.  Content to let her work speak for itself, she provides only sparse descriptions. In a single sentence, she writes that Mares was recorded at “different locations around the region of Bio

Unfathomless Turns 50 (and 51!)

2018 has been a quiet year for field recording labels, as many major players have slowed production or gone on hiatus.  Not so Brussels’ Unfathomless, which celebrates its 50th and 51st releases this season and shows no signs of slowing

Institute of Landscape Architecture ~ Melting Landscapes

Melting Landscapes is a success on all levels: concept, execution, presentation and sound.  This being said, Christophe Girot (Chair) and the staff and students of Zürich’s Institute of Landscape Architecture would likely trade all of their artistic successes for political movement.  Climate

Félix Blume ~ Death in Haiti: Funeral Brass Bands and Sounds from Port au Prince

Death in Haiti is in turns painful and exultant, drenched in loss and life-affirming.  The cries of a woman who has lost her mother are nearly unbearable; the brass bands are triumphant to the point of being transcendent.  This is the

Noodles, noodles, such wonderful noodles!  I am getting hungry just looking at Daniela d’Arielli‘s photos, which cover the adventure from field to factory.  And these noodles are not even cooked yet!  There’s a purity in the process when seen from the

Various Artists ~ Each Morning of the World

Easter Sunday is a holy day with a rare quality, often undiscussed: on this day, millions of people wake up earlier than usual, head outside to worship, and there encounter the sounds of the morning.  Over the past year, Stéphane Marin
