[SUB026] JAMES GINZBURG - SIX CORRELATIONS [SUBTEXT RECORDINGS]
DIGITAL MARKETING, PRESS & COMMUNICATION MANAGEMENT
From the press-release:
'Six Correlations' was originally composed for a commissioned performance in Berlin and recorded in early 2018 over three days.
The project explores the intersections between traditional music from various cultures, with a particular focus on Gaelic folk music native to the remote island regions of Scotland, where half of Ginzburg’s family originates from. It incorporates influences of Iranian traditional music, Indian classical and generative composition techniques.
The album explores the relationship between the organic and the digital world as a meditation on whether modernity implicitly represents a long slow goodbye to nature: a long slow goodbye to everything that is not integrated into the networked world. The response to the disappearance of both nature and non-digital culture is presented here as an aspiration to imagine and communicate an harmonious relationship between the organic and the technological.
Produced using a hand drum, piano, voice, shruti box and Roland SH-101, six correlations brings together many of the influences from the Subtext artists James Ginzburg has worked with over the last years, such as Turkish artist and percussionist Cevdet Erek, Swedish composer Ellen Arkbro, Paul Purgas, and recent releases on Arc Light Editions such as 'Salm', an LP of Gaelic Psalm singing from the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
James Ginzburg is one half of Emptyset, founder of Subtext Recordings, and co-curator of the Arc Light Editions imprint with Jennifer Allan.
