Langham Research Centre - Tape Works Vol. 2 | Nonclassical (NONCLSS043)
nonclassical: ...Tape Works Vol. 2 is the new album from the UK’s leading musique concrète ensemble, Langham Research Centre.
This album presents recent substantial pieces that contrast with the shorter pieces found on Tape Works Vol. 1 (2017) which showcased some of the group’s earliest tape experiments. These new pieces utilize recordings made in specific locations in addition to an array of analogue devices and sound producing objects, some of which feature in the album’s cover art.
This approach is evident in Dinotique, commissioned for Café Oto’s Stereo Spasms festival in 2019, a celebration of the work of the late French composer Luc Ferrari to mark his 90th birthday.
Luc Ferrari – a founding member of the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM) who worked alongside composers such as Pierre Schaeffer and Pierre Henry – is an inspirational figure to LRC.
Asked to choose one of Ferrari’s works to respond to with their own new piece, LRC selected Les Anecdotiques (2002), a work in which Ferrari combines his recordings from a series of travels with his archive of electronic sounds and spontaneous and intimate words.
