The first commercial release from sound artist Samson Stilwell, Signals has been recorded and produced over the past 6 months, combining synthesized sound and field recordings to take the listener through a rich, dynamic soundscape; melancholy yet uplifting, contemplative yet buoyant. The resulting EP is an experimental vista, combining the harmonic textures of artists such as Tim Hecker, Stephan Mathieu, Philip Jeck and Jacob Kirkegaard, with the compositional strategies of musique concrète.
Roarke Menzies is a New York City-based artist and composer who uses his voice, mouth and body, along with audio hardware, software and field recordings, to create electronic and electroacoustic sound works. His music has been described by The New Yorker as “a layered electronic throb, coming and going, always enhancing but never overpowering.” Menzies is releasing his fourth solo recording, Breath’s Length, on his own Coup de Glotte label in June 2017.
