Melodium

Melodium

My name is Laurent Girard, i was born in 1975. I learnt piano when I was young, then electronic organ. At this period, I was already making my own music, based on melody. I spent years playing melodies on the piano or organ... I have been working with collage of difference sources of sounds including my own field recordings, noises captured in background sound of movies, TV shows, radio shows. I can't help making melodies, I make minimal acoustic instrumentals immersed in various sounds and noises.

Pascal Savy

Pascal Savy

Tools manipulated in an old workshop, clocks slowed down, the spinning wheel of a rusty bike, children playing near a church, the sound of the wind in Norfolk, climbing up the stairs in a disused windmill, ghost echoes. Those are some sounds that constitute the atmosphere of The Silent Watcher. Presented in their raw form or heavily processed, they all relate to old memories, often blurred and incomplete; the aural equivalent of a faded polaroid.

Russ Young

Russ Young

I usually work by trying to create forms out of found audio and material extracted from field recordings. I like to think in terms of skins of sounds and what characteristics I can pour into it them to create a hybrid. I take field recordings of everywhere I go, searching for ‘sound marks’ or 'habitats' that I can capture and use to generate new sound designs and inspire new work.

Tatsuro Kojima

Tatsuro Kojima

My approach to music, having received a specialized education in art, might be said to be closer to that of paintings and sculptures. Being conscious in the handling of elements such as hue, saturation, brightness, mass, form, and texture, I directly apply these principles to sound as well. My inspirations are visual rather than musical. To me, there is no boundary in particular between making music and drawing a picture.
