Sombre nay Sated EP Release on Stasisfield

:: Cover design by John Kannenberg of Stasisfield ::

My first EP was released  on July 18th - World Listening Day 2013, on the UK based, Stasisfield label alongside of label founder John Kannenberg's, 'Audio Tour: The 4'33" Museum - Collection 2'. 

'Sombre nay Sated', and its linear notes are available for free digital download from the Stasisfield website HERE.

Kannenberg introduces the EP release as below:

"Australian artist and curator Tessa Elieff has combined three separate commissions into an EP of elegant coherency. With three very different original sound sources this mixture of field recordings, specially recorded sounds, voice and synthesis merge into tenebrous melancholy as fragments of organic sounds brush up against pulsing synthesis to create a stark, flowing patchwork of multifaceted solemnity."

I am very excited to include one of my older works in this release. 'Waves', was created back in 2009 using sounds from a sonic pool as generated by the contributions from myself and Jacques Soddell. The work was part of a process implemented for the final evening performance titled, 'Akousmatikoi'. At the time I was curating, directing and general 'do everything - ing' to bring the night together and never felt that I spent enough time on the piece to enable it to reach its full potential. It was a great satisfaction to hear it come to fruition - as I imagined it always to be - four years later.

Many thanks to John Kannenberg for his appreciation of my work. I highly recommend listening to his,  'Audio Tour', series.
