Agitations: Post-Electronic Sounds

Oscillatorial Binnage - Woktones (from 'Agitations: Post-Electronic Sounds') ashford daisyak

Back in 2016, Daniel Wilson brought us Radionics Radio - An Album of Musical Radionic Thought Frequencies - Delawarr Multi-Oscillator (c.1962)

He now brings us Agitations: Post-Electronic Sounds. For this release, he is part of a quartet exploring "acoustic analogies for classical electronic soundmaking techniques." It was recorded entirely acoustically. The "CD edition contains the small booklet - 'A Primer on Post-Electronic Technique'. It's just received a large feature in Electronic Sound magazine and a glowing review in The Wire, linking the post-apocalyptic technology we use with the limitations forced upon us by the pandemic."

Above is a teaser video with the following description followed by a BandCamp embed:

"From Oscillatorial Binnage's 'Agitations: Post-Electronic Sounds' released February 2020 on the Sub Rosa label. An album of recordings made using electromagnetic force fields acting upon found/recycled objects in increasingly complex mechanical systems of cranks, pulleys, levers, tilts, jacks and gears.

Oscillatorial Binnage is a London-based electroacoustic improv quartet comprised of Fari Bradley, Toby Clarkson, Christopher J Weaver, and Daniel Wilson. Self-built instruments feature extensively, along with recycled objects, inharmonic and arbitrary microtonal tunings, and solar power.

Filmed here by Toby Clarkson using multiple cameras."
