|FRANCISCO MEIRINO freezing the mic / cdr ltd 50 copies, very quiet records, UK, december 2012
* SOLD OUT !
This cdr, it's simply what its title says : a recording of freezing a microphone (hydrophone - inside a water bag).
Assembled and mastered at Shiver Mobile in 2012.
R E V I E W S :
"Francisco Meirino has the most conceptual recording here, at least judging by the title and the text on the cover. I assuming that the four pieces mentioned on the cover, 'after 20 minutes (water)', 'after 60 minutes', 'after 120 minutes' and 'after 180 minutes (ice)' reflect the various stages of freezing a mic, as the title promises us. Here we are dealing with four very quiet pieces of sound, but more of a static nature, with hardly any movement at all, or distraction from outside. Minimalist and conceptual, but also a fascinating release."
