about

a topographic listening research of social ambiences musically interpreted and re-composed

sound poetry - vocal performance - electroacoustic composition - improvisation
American vocalist Lauren Newton, internationally known for her amazing vocal techniques and performances and german sound and media artist Frank Schulte, expert for intermedia projects, sound processing and multi channel room sound spatialisation have been performing together since years in the context of improvisation, new music theatre and radio-art.

In this project the duo examines indigenous aspects of urban sound ambience and its structure, quality, and interplay with the surrounding habitat that interconnects specific spaces with sound, noise, and language.

Within this project’s framework, local acoustic sites like buildings, parks and urban resident spaces are acoustically researched and documented. These sound spaces provide the source for multi-chanelled, electro-acoustic compositions providing a tableau on which both artists musically interact.

Newton‘s voice, at home in the genres of jazz and classic, traverses countless boundaries, calling to mind the music of far-off places, cultures past, present, lost or futuristic. In this project she researches local languages, their intonation within traditional songs, pinpointing specific interpretations as well as unique vocal characteristics and transport them into a new sound/song perspective.

all tracks are recorded in April 2019 at Raum für Zeit - digital direct to disc
