Decoder hasn't left much of a footprint at FMA recently, while we've been working out the kinks at our website, but we're to get back into the swing of things by sharing this new work from Michael Hann, aka Rejections. The Jt Wrks are an hour long installment in Hann's experimental radio show, Transmit to Fade; Sonic Router described it aptly as "...an incredibly different exploration of musical tension," composed as it is of contextually varied and subsequently distorted field recordings. Hann describes it...
Transmit to Fade (T2F) is an extension of the nervous system which runs through and from the Teesside based Reject and Fade label, which is managed by producer, writer and film maker Rejections (aka Michael Hann) and will be broadcasted on the international digital radio station Basic FM.
The first episode from T2F is called The Jt Wrks, a soundscape created by Rejections out of field recordings and samples taken on a family holiday in Whitby in 2009. The piece unfolds in a dreamlike manner to explore the finite nature of memory, the tensions inherent in familial relationships, time and loss.
