Amacher, Maryanne – “Sound Characters ” – [Tzadik]

Thurston Hunger   9/4/2005   A Library, CD

Mad scientist, sonic architect Maryanne
Amacher often resisted making CD’s of her
work, as the form inhibits/limits what
her goal is. Sound in space. Often a
certain space. And not a boom box or
headphones. Here you’ve got aggressive
drones, alternating between volcano
dungeon coarsers and these twitchy
high-register square-wave tinklers.
Read the liner notes, and try some of
this loud…in a room. Perhaps not ideal
radio, definitely psychoacoustic art.
For the temples by your temples
