Artist: GUTHRIE, ANNE
Title: Brass Orchids
Format: LP
Label: Students of Decay
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Snapshots of an abandoned city. Fragments of song drifting out of basements and across alleyways, muffled conversations. Scrutinized, the "music" disappears -- maybe paracusia? Brass Orchids, Anne Guthries second full-length album for Students of Decay, is an entrancing collage of new and old sounds drawn from a variety of beguiling sources. Posthumous contributions from the artists grandfather, a jazz pianist; obsolete media palimpsests (some vanity, some necessity); tap dancing on a peeling floor... An unsettling and strangely beautiful album -- akin to something on the tip of your tongue, which, before you can name it, slips away into forgetting. Includes download code; Edition of 300.

Anne Guthrie is an acoustician, composer, and French horn player living in Brooklyn, New York. She studied Music Composition and English at the University of Iowa and Architectural Acoustics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where she completed her Ph.D in 2014. Her music combines her knowledge of acoustics and contemporary composition/improvisation. Her electronic music has focused on exploiting the natural acoustic phenomena of unique architectural spaces through minimal processing of field recordings. Her composition has focused on the orchestration of non-musical sounds, speech in particular. Her French horn playing has focused on electronic processing and extended techniques used in improvisatory settings, as a soloist and with Fraufraulein and Delicate Sen, among others. Her acoustics research has focused on the use of ambisonics for stage acoustics." - Students Of Decay.

Artist: GUTHRIE, ANNE
Title: Codiaeum Variegatum
Format: LP
Label: Students of Decay
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Based in Brooklyn, ANNE GUTHRIE is a professional acoustician, composer and sound artist whose work combines a highly technical knowledge of natural reverb, field recording and extended microphone techniques with live and processed instrumentation, including French horn, violoncello and contrabass. Her music explores the play of dichotomies: cacophony / beauty, accidental / intentional, unhinged / refined, traditional / outsider. Codiaeum Variegatum is Guthries debut full-length proper, following out-of-print short-run releases on labels such as Engraved Glass and Copy For Your Records, as well as the recently released and critically lauded Sinter, a collaboration with Richard Kamerman issued by Erstwhile Records sub-label ErstAEU. The albums six compositions showcase Guthries acumen as a composer of rich and diverse sonic phenomena. From the keeling strings which open "Branching Low and Spreading," she guides the listener through dense yet highly structured thickets of sound, juxtaposing astute room / field recordings with classical instrumentation, both dry and processed. On "Unlike More Slender and Graceful," filtered French horn plumes are wed to cavernous, watery field recordings to forge beautiful yet bleak vistas, motifs to be revisited in a more hopeful light later on. Recommended for fans of Graham Lambkin, Vanessa Rossetto, Luc Ferrari." - Students of Decay.
