The Body Imitates the Landscape
Claudio f. Baroni
"The music on this album originates in the interactive sound installation The Body Imitates the Landscape by artist Adi Hollander: she designed a collection of ergonomic objects that are meant to transform music into vibrations felt through the entire body. Hollander was inspired by the Japanese book Karada by Michitaro Tada about the ‘school of the body’. Hollander and Claudio F. Baroni made a live version of the installation where Baroni’s music, performed by Maze, was experienced live by the public. As it was channeled through the objects, the public could at once hear the music in the space and feel it in their bodies."
Yannis Kyriakides & Andy Moor
"“The music they produced is much more jagged than the clean lines of the room in which they made it, but it nonetheless feels like it was sculpted to emphasize textures and shapes, instead of the melodies that define the duo’s other work.” -Bill Meyer, Chicago Reader, June 5th, 2020"
Tout Ce Que Je Sais
Anne-James Chaton, Andy Moor
"The duo Anne-James Chaton and Andy Moor has produced original works where poetry and guitar combine in explorations of thematic axes. -Unsounds"
Claudio F Baroni
""Motum" means motion, and this is a central theme in the 3 pieces by composer Claudio F Baroni on this album. The concept is central to Baroni's work, and is explored musically and formally in his layered, dynamic, sophisticated style. The breathtaking pieces are taking the listener on a meandering path, starting from the origin of sound. Motum is Baroni's second collaboration with Unsounds. With liner notes by Samuel Vriezen."
Untitled #2 (The Mute)
Jessica Sligter & Wilbert Bulsink
"Centering on the idea of voicelessness, The Mute explores a concept that can be investigated acoustically, but that can also be approached in social terms. How can those who have no voice in our society be heard?"
Zeno van den Broek & Gagi Petrovic
"In the summer of 2014 Gaudeamus brought together audio-visual artist Zeno van den Broek and composer Gagi Petrovic and commissioned a large scale composition project. The electro-acoustic piece Ob-literate is the duo's resulting work for organ, vocal ensemble, electronics and custom built performative objects."
A Family of Three (Band Photo)
"... in Trophies, Alessandro Bosetti is more of a "voice actor" than a singer, but above all he is the director of a contemporary Post-Artrock program, in which very precise laws give life to long lasting soundworlds to support and give shape to his poetry. They transforms these very special yet fragile compositions into bubbling, pulsating, sometimes sea-quiet sound abstracts, sometimes resembling to squarepusher/thundercat-like elegant nervousness but never completely tied to a specific style or appeased into a genre." -Diedrich Diederichsen - Spex Magazine July 2017."
Anne La Berge
"Unsounds is proud to present Anne La Berge’s new piece: RAW. Originally from Stillwater, Minesota and based in Amsterdam, the avant-flutist, improviser and composer has written an open-ended work for ensemble and electronics made up of fragmented gestures and shards of skeletal speech."
