Wiresundertension

March 31st, 2011

Christopher Tignor loves to experiment with sound, trying to take different routes rather than your obvious conventional ones. If you are a musician, I bet you have felt the limitations of your technical and musical abilities more than once. If you are a guitar player, for instance, the first thing you do while picking up your axe, is go to familiar places, even if subconsciously, playing notes, chords, tricks, that are the easiest for you as a player. But if you tune the guitar to a different tuning, unfamiliar one, then you got a new instrument in your hands, which allows you total freedom as a musician. Some say it might be frustrating at first, other are skeptical and claim that it turns the guitar to a different animal, so why learn an instrument if you completely turn it around….I would say, go with it…. experiment. That`s not quite what Violinist/ composer Christopher Tignor is doing with Wires Under Tension, but he is really reaching out for more He is trying to humanize electronic music`s limitations. While using home made software he has invented,he found a way to performatively transform live sound as it streams into your computer from microphones or otherwise using commercially available Midi controllers you can get good at with practice.

A way to be a performer whose performance is intimately and tangibly connected to your surrounding band-mates’ performances.

This is an effort toward keeping electronic music truly live. Wires Under Tension are based in The South Bronx. Multi-instrumentalist Christopher Tignor switches dexterously between violin and the rest of the arsenal while Theo Metz sits behind the kit. On ‘Cказал, Cказала’ Christopher is using Fender Rhodes Mark I through Stream Sequencer software instrument he has invented.

All my wishes

March 27th, 2011

The last couple of weeks were filled with emotions, meeting those close friends from my past life in New York, and trying to deal with the present life at the same time, not quite sure where my priorities are, where family, love, music, creativity, duties all trying to sneak in at the same time with no proper self filtering for me. In times like this where confusion is running things here, I need a simple song, to put things in perspective and to remember, that`s the first thing and last thing that would make me smile and come down, even if for a brief second, is a song…….and knowing that you love me. So Jenny O, you took control and All your wishes became mine. Download the album for $4

Everything could be fine

March 23rd, 2011

Those of you who appreciate Burial or Hyperdub awesome releases, would definitely enjoy listening to ‘Everything could be fine’ by Sun Glitters. Check out the killer sub they use on Beside me and throughout. This record is a killer, with the sparse arrangement, hazy voices, and the ssssound of it.

GEM

March 17th, 2011

At first I was thinking to myself that German Error message was the strangest name for a band/ project. But it`s initials creat GEM, and to tell you the truth, Paul Kintzing`s bedroom project, is a very special sounding experimental folk piece of work, extremely mature for this young dude, who has been doing his homework and obviously learning from the best of his genre, like Bon Iver, The Microphones, Iron & Wine. This great digital album, ‘After the warmth’, was recorded at his home in the state of Tennessee, and is all about feel and bunch of great songs.

Gaze at the dead

March 16th, 2011

Don’t you love it when you find out about new fresh music? It gives us a feeling we have fulfilled our mission here, thus, exposing you to new and dope material. Especially, if the artist is some kind of innovator. That`s the case with R. Cole Furlow AKA Dead Gaze, another bedroom lofi wizard. ‘I`m a mess when you`re gone’ is a little demonstration of the damage this guy could do.
