Ritual Part 1 by Shield Your Eyes
02_Elements: In spring 2012, I began inviting players whose work I like to contribute improvised parts towards a long-term project with the working-title of 'Elements'. The intention was that each player contributes in isolation, without any knowledge about the other players taking part. After gathering a workable pool of these parts, I then began composing with these elements - processing, editing and such like - along with adding my own work. This is the eleventh of these pieces, comprised of myself and one other player: 02_Elements. Improvisers: Pixyblink: voice / Anthony Donovan: words. This piece is somewhat different from previous
pieces in the series in simply presenting Pixyblink's, I think, remarkable performance of my prose.

Brought back a dream into my mind I dreamt in March or early April. In this dream I was walking through a forest in springtime. Fresh green leaves on the trees. While walking I kept looking at my own feet and when I looked up again, all the leaves where dry an brown. And I was thinking to myself: "It's strange, I didn't even notice the summer". And now it's snowing. No one should ever tell me again, that dreams can't come true!

All rights reserved / http://www.burstbot.com Cagey House: Kid Feardive had been speaking less and less, and Katherine the Ghost had yet to utter a word. For a long time, Kid Feardive had built these elaborately noisy contraptions out of rebar and barbed wire and old flatware. And he had pushed them down staircases and rolled them down steep embankments and sometimes pulled them with his car. But lately the only sound he made was when he rapped the cap of his pen against a blank sheet of paper. Katherine the Ghost seemed put out by all this. She trained her beady eyes on the bouncing pen cap. She twisted her thin lips around like she was going to spit or let slip some sharp invective. But then she smiled instead, and looked up at me and winked. And her eyes arenít really all that beady. Just beady enough in fact Carlos Ramirez: [...] Cezary Gapik: [...] Chevo LÈgÈ: avec quoi Ècoute-t-on ? les oreilles ou les yeux ? la tÍte ou le corps ? dans quel Ètat se trouvent notre corps et notre mental au moment díaborder ce travail ? cherchons-nous ‡ provoquer artificiellement un Ètat particulier ? avons-nous envie de mettre líaccent sur les nerfs ? la rÈflexion ? la concentration ? la force physique ? une disponibilitÈ de tout líÍtre ? Chris Whitehead: is interested in the way sound can be used to evoke landscape, location and history. He has released field recordings on the Electronic Musik label, OBS, Unfathomless and Impulsive Habitat. In his work, and in the manipulated sound duo Ammonites with Chris Corner, the intention is always to immerse the listener in an unseen, textural environment. Chris is based in Whitby on the north east coast of England- A place which reverberates with deep echoes of the past / http://linearobsessional.weebly.com Clive Pearman and Richard Sanderson: The duo of Clive Pearman and Richard Sanderson were both members of the avant-rock quartet Lost Robots. Performing as a duo primarily on acoustic instruments (resonator guitar, melodeon etc) but with some electronic processing, the music is quieter and more textured than their previous group / http://linearobsessional.weebly.com Crank Sturgeon and Lineland: do that (((plural))) / Album: Other Occasions Not Minded / www.mutablesound.com / Blurbs and whatnot appear here: http://www.mutablesound.com/home/?p=4466 http://www.mutablesound.com/ / www.mutablesound.com Crush!!!: Water Raquette/ Crush!!! are Mark Browne, Sonic Pleasure and Ian Smith. The group utilises an array of found and home-made sound making devices combined with more traditional instruments within an improvisational context. Sonic Pleasure is famed for her unique crafting of sound from bricks and masonry, reducing much of her instrumentation to dust by the end of a concert with an orange haze clearly visible over the performance area. Some of the bricks will be transported from her home, others will be collected near the venue. She also plays flute. Mark Browne plays piranha and castrato saxophones (sopranino ìthe small one that bitesî and soprano ìthe Farinelli pasticheî), broken glass, clarinet, earth, burnt piano and bones. On this piece his instrumentation was restricted to water, game calls, tenor recorder, cymbals and gongs. Ian Smith plays brass in an extraordinary and creative manner. For this venture the aim was to exploit the use of water: splashing in water, changing the pitch of wind and percussion by submerging the instruments in water and generally making wet sounds. The members of the group individually created their contributions (with Sonic P living in Manchester, Ian in London, Mark in Aylesbury this has become a necessary activity for ongoing interaction). For 0021 the mixing and production was performed by Mark Browne.

May 2011 / Morra is a hand game that dates back thousands of years to ancient Roman and Greek times. It can be played to decide issues, much as two people might toss a coin, or for entertainment. While there are many variations of morra, most forms can be played with two, three, or more players. In the most popular version, all players throw out a single hand, each showing zero to five fingers, and call out loud their guess at what the sum of all fingers shown will be. If one player guesses the sum, that player earns one point. The first player to reach three points wins the game. Some variants of morra involve money, with the winner earning a number of currency units equal to the sum of fingers displayed.

I sat in the incubator for four months. I remember only that the incubator was made of glass, was transparent and had a thermometer. I sat inside the incubator on cotton wool. I don't remember anything else about it. After four months they took me out of the incubator. They did this, as it happens, on the first of January 1906.

No digital manipulation. Nothing added to the photograph surface) Pulcinella: is the alter-ego of musician, performer and visual artist Colin Sanderson, formerly of the Brooklyn-based psych/prog/performance art trio Manburger Surgical. Derived from the Commedia dell'arte archetype of the same name, Pulcinella is the embodiment of the "Kozmic Buffoon," a sock-a-delic idiot Man-Child hellbent on raising a ruckus. Sanderson uses his highly personal take on the Pulcinella character as a means to unravel inner mysteries of identity, trauma, and internal personal narrative. Pulcinella has had his visual art and video work exhibited through Babylon Projects, and has been performing in the underground Brooklyn Experimental Music/Performance Art scene for 5 years, both as a solo performer and with Manburger Surgical. Culling influence from renegade Performance Art, Z-Grade Horror/Exploitation Film, Noise, Freudian psychology, psychedelia, The Occult and The Grotesque, progressive rock, and puppetry & ventriloquism, Pulcinella's work is intended to jolt the senses as a means to lead toward an "ULTIMATE KOZMIC TROOTH." Pulcinella has currently been working with two talented percussionists: Diana K and Grandpa Scorpion, as well as collaborating with fellow DIY musician/performer Captain Careful and video artist Jim Tuite / http://pulcinella.bandcamp.com http://theworldofpulcinella.tumblr.com / http://www.facebook.com/pulcinellakozmicbuffoon Qkcofse: [...] Richard Pinhas: Composed and guitar played by Richard PINHAS at HELDON Studio, 21th Century.

Rocha: [...] Ross Ackerman: Sheets hanging to dry flutter in the breeze as weft and weave align and shift creating patterns like oil spreading on water Ruela Pinho and Kicksville: Written around one of Tone Deaf's poems, Introspekt is about getting old and the eventual understanding that there's no point getting upset about it. It's also an oblique reference to the Buddhist idea that everything is transitory, never fixed. Existence is perceived as a series of phase changes, like liquid water turning into ice or gas and back again. There's no reason to struggle against these changes - they are and will be, and all the crying in the world won't stop them. And if reality and our place in it are temporary illusions created by our preconceptions, then as Aya sings in the melody/mantra, "Looking through the blind eye / We are not here / We are nowhere at all." Therefore, following the idea through to its logical conclusion, Introspekt is really about nothing! / Tone Deaf Salford Media City vs Noise Research: A Noise Research remix of the track 'Doing Stuff is Fun' by Manchester band 'Salford Media City'. It was done at the bands request and NR was given carte blanche with regards to what was done with the music. Radically altered and re-processed, the piece is built up from the individual multitracks from the original work and no additional sounds were employed. As with much of Noise Research's work there are incredibly dense layers of sound, dystopian worlds and the feeling of something outside 'trying to get in'. Trust is the foundation of the Salford Media City: we are independent, impartial and honest. Assisting audience members in the practical application of dance is at the heart of everything we do. We take pride in delivering quality and value for money. Creativity is the lifeblood of our organisation. We respect each other and celebrate our diversity so that everyone can give their best. We, the Salford Media City, recognize the unity which embraces everything including you. We love you. Join us. Great things happen when we work together. Description ëSalford Media City has brought and continues to bring considerable added musical value, they have great musical vision, they are prepared to take risks and remain both accessible and approachable. Other regions would love to have a musical developer of their calibre supporting the regional economic strategy and economic recovery.í SatisfacciÛn Lab: SatisfacciÛn Lab (Jorge Marredo) was born in Badajoz, Spain.

Later; Swan Song for a tape recorder (1997). Recorded using a rather battered and broken double tape machine, w' a 4 slider graphic and bass /stereo separation, by fusing and feeding it it back on it's self, w/ metal objects (coins, washers) and wire, making a layered distortion by removing the eraserhead, and detaching recorder-head to make it malleable to various positional adaptions effecting the stereo panning.
