William Basinski & Lawrence English, Marta De Pascalis



In their first collaboration the two experimental sound artists explore the intervals between states of consciousness. The work “Selva Oscura,” released last autumn, gives sound to inner topographies as an allegory of a diffuse twilight, taking inspiration in the title from Dante’s “Inferno.” Reductions in sound and the oscillation of density and dynamics in repetition make it possible to hear a loss of inner constitution. Before Marta De Pascalis explores electronic music using both synthesizers and tape machines.

Here you can listen to the album “Selva Oscura," released October 2018 with Temporary Residence.
