Paul Nataraj You Sound Like A Broken Record (2018)
These pieces were made by engaging in a three fold process which attempted to uncover the hidden personal stories held within the grooves of the vinyl record. Fourteen volunteers were kind enough to part with a vinyl record which they felt held a special place in their lives. I interviewed each of them about this record, the story attached to it and their wider musical journeys. I carved these personal stories back onto the surface of each disc in order to highlight the ways in which musical memory is constantly in flux and produces different tensions and sonic realities over the course of our lives and also to bring into relief the dialectical position the record plays as both icon of the music industry but also symbol of musical rebellion. This created a palimpsest of the record, a uniques object which brought together record, artist, volunteer, material and memory into one sonic space. Each record was then recorded and reconstructed into these works, and have at their heart the stories that were locked away in the grooves of these records. This work apprehends some of the splintered fragments the vinyl records’ heterogeneous ontology from the stand-point of a participant / observer, opening a productive dialogue between industry, user, artefact, artist, music and society.

"The album was mostly composed, recorded, and sketched during an Estonian residency at MoKS for a program that was hosted by Simon Whetham and John Grzinich called Active Crossover. The goal of that program was to bring together various artists whose work pertained directly or indirectly to environmental recordings. When John asked me about what kinds of spaces I was interested in seeking out before I arrived, I mentioned that I would like to investigate sites that had a considerable amount of electro-magnetic disruption which I could capture on radio along with sites of psychic distress. The Estonian landscape is pocked with abandoned buildings of considerable size and decay. Many of the excursions for Active Crossover engaged the large crumbling Soviet-era structures. Given that the electricity was off in many of these sites, I had to rely on shortwave to capture any electro-magnetic disruptions instead of any fluctuations from shitty wiring or weird Soviet power transformers... and the radio reception from that particular time and that particular place (i.e. southeastern Estonia) was eerie and unsettled. The crackle, drone, and noise is unlike that which is heard in the United States, looming with a (possibly perceived) paranoia of the Russian state just a few kilometers away. That said, Estonia had experienced an encroachment from Russia as the Russian military kidnapped/extradited an Estonian intelligence officer who was on Estonian soil at the time not too far from where I was staying. Given the contemporary military actions of Russia reclaiming Crimea from Ukraine, this incident put many an Estonian on edge. The A-side to 'Flammable Materials' reflects this aestheticized paranoia through bursts of static, pulsed noise, and atonal sinews of sustained frequency. The B-side is wholly more introspective, cutting up an Estonian radio broadcast into phonemes, disjointed phrases, and cryptic speech. What few words that can be recognized from the Estonian pertain to the forces of globalization. From the context of someone who understands very little of the language, these snippets of a female voice clip like a surrealist collage or a Dada poem. Compositionally, I was thinking very much of Robert Ashley's 'Purposeful Lady Slow Afternoon' and the Nurse With Wound recontextualization of such sounds." (- Jim Haynes)

G.E.S uguisubari (2017)
In the Edo period, the nightingale floor was a popular acoustic warning system. The principle was very simple: when someone stepped on the floorboards, the nails holding them in place rubbed against metal clamps mounted on the underside of the boards, raising the alarm by creating a squeaking noise that resembled the chirping of the Japanese nightingale. Thanks to the country’s painstaking reconstruction of temples and castles, these floors can still be walked on and heard today. During a residence of several months in Japan in 2014, I had the opportunity to mic and record nightingale floors at Nijo Castle and at the temple of Nanzen-ji. In my makeshift studio in the basement of the Kyoto Goethe Institute, I then made numerous pieces – all using the same sound sources: an oscillator and an audio sampler with recordings of the chirping floorboards. Two of these pieces are included here – they are both journal entries and tributes to the uguisubari.
