Molina, David – “Music For Installations and Performance Art” – [Self-release]
Here is a self released 5 track CD from the wide wonderful world of David Molina. David is no new comer to the sound design realm. His 15 years of composing sound sculptures has found its way into many landscapes of the multimedia experience. Presented here in its audio form, are sound designs of placement and /or performance art collaborating with local artists. The first track is an 18+ minute sound scape with floating guitar riffs layered with field recordings about California and the SF bay area. David worked with a local film group Cause Collective and the resulting piece is a permanent exhibit at the Oakland Museum. #2 is a short water world sound with plastic instruments made from item found on the beach. Track 3 is whirlwind of mechanical sounds ranging from player pianos to vintage vocals from old time crooners. 4 and 5 take a look at immigration from the eyes for young kids playing hide and seek with a toy piano playing twinkle twinkle little star and then 5 takes us to a close with a 8 minute dialog of a woman with an ill child needing to get to the U.S. for medical attention…both pieces are in Spanish. This reviewer suggests that you check out the visual side of each placement.
