Seren Ffordd – Fractured III – Shards [rM_0045]
We are thrilled to announce the release of Seren Ffordd’s release – Fractured III – Shards. Here’s what the artist has to say about his album:
As a whole the three album project was inspired by the thought that the first act of any musician is to break the silence, rending the quiet by pouring sound into the waiting space as gently as an unfolding rose or as savagely as a lightning strike – all three albums explore that sense of fracture in the sounds themselves and how they are manipulated to create the music, the atmospheres…
‘Shards’ was created as a softer companion piece to the other two albums. It is more dreamy and evocative, the sounds not so much torn and shattered as shifted and slanted. Not so much the stone as it hits the still surface of a quiet pool, but more the ripples of the water from the impact as they reach the pools edges. The sounds changing gently at the edge of hearing, sliding between form and chaos and back again.
On ‘Shards’ every sound is acoustic in origin. Sources include: Wine glass, water, CDs being bent or broken, glass beads, singing bowls, bells, tin foil, breathing etc – many of the original sounds are unrecognisable, having been passed through various effects a number of times. Sometimes the same sound is heard through different effects, creating the shifting textures and tones.
