released May 3, 2011

This live performance by EMERGE was given in the context of a painting exhibition and creates a dynamic set ranging from metallic percussion, rumbling drones, and sometimes sursprisingly groovy loops. All sounds are created from sampled noises made by paintbrushes and other painting tools.

The live performance was recorded on the finishing night of the exhibition „hörbar in Farbe“ (‚audible in colour’). The CD accompanying the exhibition, also released by Attenuation Circuit (ACS 1001), contains a studio version of “Canvas”. Although the live improvisation uses sounds from the same source as the studio recording – sounds created by one of the exhibiting painters using brushes, glasses, canvas, cardboard, and other materials –, the two versions are very different in terms of their compositional structure and sonic textures because the samples were treated to a wide range of live manipulations in performance.



Diese Aufnahmen entstanden im Rahmen der Ausstellung “hörbar in Farbe” 2011 in Augsburg. Es ging um die Wechselwirkung zwischen Bildender Kunst und Sound. Die Stücke auf Canvas Live wurden alle aus Geräuschen mit Malwerkzeugen erwirtschaftet; die Sourcings stammen vom Komponisten Gerald Fiebig und der Künstlerin Tine Klink, die auch das Covermotiv der CDR beigesteuert hat. Dieses Klangmaterial wurde von Emerge in einen warmen, tietchoid glucksenden Sound verwandelt, der dunkel und geheimnisvoll klingt und doch stets durchlässig bleibt. Nichts wird hier zugeklatscht, auch der prägnante Einsatz des Delays wirkt hier der Gesamtform zuträglich. Sounds perlen in den Raum hinein, als sollten sie Farbverläufe oder Schichtungen nachempfinden. Eine sehr überraschende und reife Arbeit des Projekts Emerge.
