VA – Tying up Loose Ends

The latest TONEBURST release is available.

https://toneburst.bandcamp.com/

The sailors make fast the loose ends to ensure the boat is shipshape.

“Tying Up Loose Ends” is a nautically themed project split into 2 segments. 
The first, titled “Noise Forecast”, is heavily inspired by BBC shipping forecasts, the rhythm of their delivery and the alien yet comprehensible language used within them. The compositional framework for this part of the project is a text-based score which was written in a way that aimed to allow each participant a unique translation. To further contrast the finished pieces, careful attention is made in approaching different artists with varying sonic palettes.

The score for this first installment of the project reads as follows:

“Culport;
Southern Bleakness. 8
Phront – Lofty, Stressure: NIL.
Bromide Sprinkles – Occasional.
Eudaimonia – Swindling, Tempestuous Nodes.
Torrential Data, Deluges: 37, Clustered.
Drainage: In Toto, Preparation Timely.”


The second project segment, titled “Flotsam, Jetsam, Lagan & Derelict”, is an exploration of how new life can be given to short pieces of sound that perhaps could get lost somewhere in a timeline. To achieve this, audio is salvaged from one person and recycled by another, although organised in such a way that ‘who is collaborating with who’ remains unknown. Artist and equipment information are intentionally removed as to hopefully have no influence over the finished works.
Guidelines for FJL&D are:
“SALVAGE You have received some salvaged audio from another participant involved. Use these sounds as a starting point.
RECYCLE
Please use both files, although they don’t have to be used in their entirety. One shot or single cycle samples are fine. You are free to edit & treat these in any way you see fit. Chop, Sample, Granularize & Mangle. Unrecognisable is good. Additional instrumentation is allowed and encouraged. This is not a remix project.
COLLABORATION
Audio discovered amongst your posts has been shared with another participant to carry out the same process.”
Loose Ends #1 is focused around the fictional land, and surrounding coast, of “Culport”. The tracklisting is as follows;
