The latest issue of The Wire (#409) contains my article on ‘psyphonics’ – the idealistic practice of attempting to embed idea, emotion and ‘thought’ within sound. A blogpost over at the Miraculous Agitations blog gives a little background to the idea. The Wire article charts how this romantic concept survives and even flourishes within modernity’s rigours.
A newly formed Psyphonics Facebook group now exists for anyone wishing to explore the idea further and share related music/recordings.
Oscillatorial Binnage will be performing at IKLECTIK tomorrow (13th June)! More details can be found on the Iklectik website: here. There’s a Facebook event page here. It forms the second in the series of Resonance Extra’s ‘Extra Nights’.
A posting over at the main Miraculous Agitations blog gives an idea of what to expect.
Here’s an impromptu behind-the-scenes photograph of us setting up for our rehearsal at the weekend:

New blog post over at the Miraculous Agitations blog – on resonating street furniture, electromagnetic apparatuses, post-electronic busking and ‘acoustic circuit-bending’. It forms a sort of cautionary tale on the perils of electromagnetically resonating too far afield.
Also, a primer on post-electronic music can be found in the new Exact Change e-zine #8.
