RIP Ivo Malec 

Source: Wikipedia.

Coming from a rather ‘classical’ background, he met Pierre Schaeffer whom he considers his ‘true and only master’; Schaeffer’s teachings turned Malec into one of the most important leaders of the Groupe de recherches musicales. Since then he dedicated himself to a more radical style.

Malec’s approach to composition which in ways is similar to that of Denis Dufour or Xenakis is the emphasis on all aspects of sound including texture, density, movement, timbre and notably sonic character and form and the use of sound objects.

AMN Reviews: Niklas Adam – Undulate [SOFA 572]

Undulate, the solo release from Niklas Adam, a sound artist originally from Denmark but now living in Oslo, is a paradoxical album. The two longish tracks are austere and episodic in structure, but the individual sounds that they comprise are strangely sensual. Both pieces consist of more or less discrete events of sounds whose sources are hard to place—acoustic percussion? Purely electronic sounds? Some combination of the two or something else altogether?—but which call attention to themselves in a quiet but compelling way.
