Artist: VIDA, BEN
Title: Extraction
Format: LP
Label: Future Audio Graphics
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Future Audio Graphics is pleased to announce Extraction, the latest from composer and sound artist Ben Vida (Pan, Amish, Shelter Press, et al). Extraction (FAG 001) is a collaboration between Vida, visual artist Meredyth Sparks, and curator/writer Anthony Elms and is the first in a series of collaborative releases for Future Audio Graphics. Continuing Vidas explorations of digital and analog processing systems, Extraction gives particular focus to aural phenomena—engaging electronic, non-representational sounds that appear to cut, move and oscillate on both vertical and horizontal planes. Building on his past work, Vidas two, side-long contributions to Extractioninclude, among other things, a series of what appears to be infinitely long, sweeping tones staggered between short, halting breaks. The audio parallels an artistic practice and method that visual artist Meredyth Sparks has developed over the last five years in her own studio and practice. Vida is a 2013 Artist-in-Residence at Brooklyns Issue Project Room and will be celebrating this release with a performance there on October 17th, 2013. Anthony Elms is currently the Associate Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, the editor of White Walls and is a curator of the 2014 Whitney Biennial. Meredyth Sparks has exhibited internationally, including recent solo exhibitions at The Arts Club of Chicago and Veneklasen/Werner, Berlin. Her work is currently featured in the group exhibition, Test Pattern at the Whitney Museum of American Art." -Future Audio Graphics.

Artist: VIDA, BEN
Title: Esstends-Esstends-Esstends
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"In collaboration with Keith Fullerton Whitman and Greg Davis, Ben Vida explores cross-control voltage-integrated improvisation and real-time automatic group composition. Ben has worked with artists Hisham Bharoocha (duo as Soft Circle), Siebren Versteeg, Doug Aitken, Nadia Hironaka and Mathew Suib. He has played in ensembles led by Tony Conrad, Rhys Chatham, and Werner Dafeldecker. As an improviser, he has performed with Milo Fine, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Chad Taylor, Kevin Drumm, Yamatsuka Eye and C. Spencer Yeh, among many others. He has released over 20 records on such labels as Thrill Jockey, Drag City, PAN, Amish, Bottrop-Boy, Häpna and Kranky. In 2011, Ben was Composer in Residency at Diapason Space, NYC and at EMS Studios, Stockholm and was awarded a Swedish Arts Committee Travel Grant, ISSUE Project Room Emerging Artists Commission and Museu dArt Contemporani de Barcelona "Composing with Process" Exclusive Works Commission. Esstends-Esstends-Esstends is a collection of spatial compositions in which audio focal points shift between external and internal emanation sources. The intent with this work is to escape the stereo image and create an activated listening space of expanded spatialization. Using just intoned pitch combinations to produce difference tones and harmonic distortions, sound materials are created that emanate from both the playback speakers and inner ear of the listener. By engaging the listeners sense of aural perception and sound localization in relationship to compositional structure, these pieces act to reframe the listening experience and encourage an engagement with, not only the form and aesthetic of the music, but the sonic space a recorded piece of music projects. Higher amplitude will help to reveal. Limited edition of 500 copies, pressed on 140 gram vinyl. Housed in a poly-lined inner sleeve, packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silk-screened PVC sleeve with artwork by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas." -Pan.
