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.

"En la cuna de la palabra" es un proyecto que trabaja sobre la expresión primigenia del sonido, a través de la glosolalia, la poesía fonética y la percusión. Unretorno a los orígenes desde una perspectiva actual. Una mirada no antropológica, una mirada experimental y lúdica sobre el trabajo de dos poetas: John M. Bennett y Juan Cunha.
"In the cradle of the word" is a project that works on the primal expression of sound, through glossolalia, phonetic poetry and percussion. A return to the origins from a current perspective. A look not anthropological, experimental and ludic look on the work of two poets: John M. Bennett and Juan Cunha.

On Thursday September 20, 2012, the 24th Season of INTERPRETATIONS, Thomas Buckner’s longstanding series for the presentation of innovative new music begins with an evening featuring two innovative composers! Composer and Sonic Arts Union founding member David Behrman’s concert-length work is built around texts by Siegfried Sassoon & S. N. Behrman, and features Eric Barsness & Thomas Buckner (voices), Theodore Mook (cello), Ralph Samuelson (shakuhachi), & Peter Zummo (trombone). Canadian Composer Tim Brady’s monumental work takes solo guitar to evocative and dramatic new territory. Featuring Stephanie Griffin (viola), Cheryl Seltzer (piano), and Martin Messier & Nelly-Eve Rajotte (video).
In anticipation of our opening event, we would like to offer three pieces of music: Two tracks from Tim Brady's monumental work 24 Frames, and one piece by David Behrman, performed by Jon Gibson at the Kitchen in the mid 1990s.

As soon as one really starts listening to Ryan T. Dunn's sonic creations as Instinct Control, one realizes that as much as they are improvised, the project name is no accident, as the end result is very much an experiential journey with the composer/performer as guide, "intent" unfolding as it happens. I envision Ryan a bit lost in a pyramid, but far from panicking, he's gradually mastering the texture of the glyphs along the wall, patiently and deliberately finding his way. It's good chaos, like that scene in Tarkovsky's The Mirror, all shaken-out hair and falling plaster rendered in slow motion.
Ryan is a real-time composer, who really knows his instrument, and where you could say this about many in the circuit-bending crowd, when listening to Instinct Control, one really feels the journey—every corner the music turns, every choice the player takes, is an exploration of feeling, a joyous journey, and lucky you get to ride along.
These two sets were rendered absolutely live, on the My Castle of Quiet program of February 18, Ryan seated on the floor, thus somewhat hidden from view to engineer Bob Bellerue and myself. Seemingly very lucid, quiet and confident, Ryan sat before his instrument and found his way, for as long as the journey made sense. And though by the common standard, this is raucous, intense music, to me these are soul-stirring trips—the more I explore these sets, the more I appreciate their energizing quality, their sure power and uplifting vibrance.
Thanks to Bob Bellerue for exposing me to Ryan's music and setting up the meet, as well as engineering the live session. Thanks as always to Tracy Widdess of Brutal Knitting for stomping colorful life into my iPhone capture of the artist at work; buy a radical balaclava from her today—reasonably priced original Canadian folk art it is. And thanks most of all to Ryan T. Dunn for these ever-more-uplifting performances. Hallelujah!
