Ken Camden, sound artist from Chicago, released few days ago a preview of his track ‘Curiosity’ taken from his upcoming LP ‘Dream Memory’ on the imprint Kranky.
(official release June 15th)
The album consists of 8 tracks:
1. Adenosine 2. Time Bend 3. Renewal 4. Curiosity 5. Melatonin 6. Dream Memory 7. Brain Work 8. Asleep at the Wheel
We found this album delightful and brilliant. It’s interesting to see how the use of the steel slide and e-bow technique from the electric guitar can open a new realm of sonic explorations and somehow trick the listener. We liked its reverse approach, how using the guitar to emulate the synthesizer proves the autonomy of sound..
Our favorite is ‘Curiosity’. We liked how it breathes naturally and at the same time how the soundscape is unfolding organically. The fluidity of this piece made us thought about our place in this universe..
