The Amsterdam-based DNK website’s audio section, dnk-amsterdam.com, has uploaded a live recording by Vesna Pisarovic (voice) and Roberto Garréton (electronics) from May 2007. Pisarovic has a gentle sound, at least to the extent that it’s legible as a voice in this recording. For the most of the piece, Garréton’s electronics send the voice through an exhausting exercise course of techniques, from waifish chorale to spectral whisps to data chatter (MP3). The retro-ASCII design at the DNK MP3 page was headed up by media artist André AvelÃ£s.
… This is, by the way, the final Disquiet.com Downstream entry of 2007. Happy New Year, everyone!
