Jen Reimer (CAN) and Max Stein (USA) share a fascination with reverberant spaces. Drawing inspiration from the hidden harmonies and secret rhythms present in urban sound enviroments, they create immersive multichannel sound works for processed horn and field recordings: conceived, composed, performed and recorded in the spaces themselves.
This release features two performances in resonant, yet very different locations. "Lisboa" was recorded in the former cistern Mãe D’Áqua, an architectural cathedral for water and it's sounds. In "Skagaströnd", Jen Reimer + Max Stein take their listeners into the inside of an old chimney in Iceland, and slowly reveal it's glistening, fulminating wavy sound. Both works make the entanglement of sound and space tangible for those who let themselves glide into the recordings.
The tape version comes with a riso-printed poster by Hraïr Hratchian and a download code.
