Recorded at HCMF 2015, this CD celebrates the publication FOUR (www.mumeipublishing.com
) that invites eleven works that linger in between categories of critical thinking, sonic art, music, visual art and literature. Each work articulates silence and space that is in some way sonic, and their minimal aesthetics may be perceived as active or non-active in theory and practice. Some compositions are quite introspective, while others are more argumentative, but non is definitive. FOUR connects reading as an intimate listening experience.
