Experimental radio show from Rejections

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.

Music for Video: Shades of Drone

University of Haifa Younes & Soraya Nazarian Library (CC BY-SA)

Sometimes the sound you're looking for is a sound that sustains. Music for sitting right where you are, but going somewhere, slowly.

This Music for Video mix highlights many shades of drone and ambient electronic music from across the Free Music Archive, including some that can set a relaxing and joyful tone, and others that can be a tool for your most tense and chaotic scenes. The best drone delivers, creating a tonality upon which the rest of the piece is built, often creating a meditative space, taking on the feeling of a sculpture, and evoking intense feelings.

1. Lee Rosevere (websiteCC BY-NC) - Looking out the window of an airplane at dawn. Part of a compilation of songs intended for meditation and relaxing.

2. Zachary Cale, Mighty Moon & Ethan Schmid (websiteCC BY-NC) - The fifth in the Natch collaborative series features a team effort on "Trees Don't Sleep," which begins with two minutes of drone before the drums and melodies join in. Drone stays along for the ride.

3. Tom Carter (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - Looped guitar drones of immensely stacked beauty, with heaps of psychedelic melodic content. Fantastic.

4. Saito Koji (websiteCC BY-NC-SA) - Straight from the Fukushima native's most recent release, Koji's heavily distorted guitar grows large.

5. A. P. Vague (websiteCC BY-NC) - A calm loop slowly loses its cool, like driving through a spring rainstorm.

6. Candelgravity (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - The tragic and the beautiful twisted together.
