3 - COLLINGS, MATTHEW - SILENCE IS A RHYTHM TOO - (CD) 
DENOVALI


"Silence Is A Rhythm Too" isnt conceived as the absence of sound like a Cageian silence that is simply a span of time that is empty, but rather how silence and sound can be processed in a composition. Collings interest is musically based on huge densities of sound just as hes fascinated by opposing forces to wrestle with each other. Silence seems to be harder and harder to achieve in this technologically saturated age and Matthew Collings admits that it reveals the habits of his own hearing, from being obsessed with its opposite: noise. "Silence Is A Rhythm Too" is about trying to find grace, space and expanse as much as tension and menace, and reconciling the two.Stepping away from song-like structures, which filled his previous record, "Splintered Instruments", creates more spacious sounds and evokes the impression of time stretched through the three dimensions. Still being intrigued by the idea of materials on the edge of collapse, he catches them up in their dying breath: The record is full of these processes, including prepared amplifiers and electronics pushed to the extreme to coax new sounds, close-micing and high volume. Despite the fact that most of his work is mediated by technology, hes far more excited by the sound of acoustic. Featuring brass ensembles and a string quartet the instruments and sounds are full of cracks, breath, embedding rough materials informed by luscious intentions. Real instruments and real acoustic spaces are used as much as possible during the production such as the electronics, were played out into concert halls and large rooms and re-recorded. "Silence Is A Rhythm Too" keeps an eye on the small textural details as it is about harmony and physicality in the moment where silence and noise meet.For fans of Ben Frost, Nico Muhly, Autechre, My Bloody Valentine, Glenn Branca or Steve Reich

5 - COLLINGS, MATTHEW - SPLINTERED INSTRUMENTS - (CD) 
DENOVALI


Matthew Collings is a Scottish-based composer. Not only being a solo recording and live artist, he collaborates regularly with artists from all kinds of fields including musicians (Dag Rosenqvist from Jasper TX, Denovali label mate Talvihorros, Christos Michalakos or Euan Mcmeeken with whom he forms the duo Graveyard Tapes), dancers and filmmakers. Hes responsible for several installations using custom-made software, which have been exhibited at Burning Man Festival/ San Francisco, Glasgow's Centre for Contemporary Arts or the 50th Design Biennial in Ljubliana/ Slovenia. His work for films includes a specially commissioned live score for Dziga Vertovs 1929 silent classic, The Man with the Movie Camera and an invitation to work on The Invisibles, a commission from Amnesty International. Before settling down in Edinburgh, he lived in Iceland for six year, where he wrote a number of albums issued under the name of his lo-fi/ambient project "Sketches for Albinos" and where he met fellow collaborator Ben Frost. His music can be roughly described as 'an elemental whorl of electro-acoustic (de)composition' (Boomkat.com), ranging from tiny delicate moments of intimacy to all consuming noise. Collings gentle blurred singing voice is added consequently as an melodic instrument, that never dominates, but soaks through a composition, which seems to be distorted through its state of constant shift. Strongly influenced by avant-garde guitar music, it calls the minimal music of Steve Reich or Gavin Bryars to mind in like manner.Splintered Instruments '.is not about noise or the decibel levels - its about the sheer uncompromised approach to raw sound design' (Headphone Commute). For fans of Ben Frost, Nico Muhly, Autechre, My Bloody Valentine, Glenn Branca or Steve Reich.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Vasilia 02. They Meet On The Subway 03. Crows 04. Pneumonia Loves The Moon 05. Paris Is Burning 06. Routine
