various artists - elffriede: soundrawing

CD is €20.- plus shipping

elffriede, a vienna-based visual artist, has sent drawings to 34 musicians in different countries all over the world and invited them to compose 2-minutes sound-pieces inspired by the drawing.

the artists worked with various instruments (computer, field recordings, electroacoustic instruments, violin, saxophone, voice, typewriter and others) and thus the styles of the sound pieces are miscellaneous:

soundscapes (grzinich, kaiser, murmer, niblock, ruhland/behr)
electroacoustic music (goncalves, grünrekorder, prlic, raffaseder, troyer)
remixes (brandstifter, fuchs, gansterer, roisz),
beats, clicks & cuts (incite, mohntau, piringer, raffeiner, splinks,)
acoustic instruments and songs (homolka-list, reiter, wohnzimmer, zemmler,)
... and other styles and genres.
