Kate Carr Makes Do

A song in spare parts

Kate Carr’s six-minute arrangement of transformed field recordings and pre-existing material has a self-explanatory name. It is titled, in full, “I Made This Song from Wind, Hunting Signs and Music I Secretly Recorded.” The “song-ness” of it relies on a gentle swell, a sedately ominous sway that suggests Angelo Badalamenti on an especially somber day. It merges with white noise foundation and is occasionally embellished with bug noise and distant sounds, clangs and static.
