Debut release from UK/Berlin-based musician Preslav Literary School.
Directly inspired by early Jim O'Rourke recordings, the piece is
composed from a series of delayed tape sounds, reversed drones and field
recordings as well as from material extracted from open sources
including ringtones by Carsten Nicolai.
Recording sonic experiments, spoken word, birdsong and drones onto
cassette tapes and dictaphones, Preslav Literary School mixes these
sources live with other found sound (including material from lofts,
abandoned buildings and the sides of roads) to create layered
soundscapes which recontextualise the original material into new
improvised compositions. Recorded live for Resonance FM, his third
album, pretext/context, has just been released on GFDM Records.
Preslav Literary School has played performances in a wide range of
settings including at Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, mima,
University of Sunderland, Stray Signals Festival, Winter Weekend
Festival, Gallery Glue and has recently supported Crevecouer and Little
Pebble (Fence Collective). Adam recently completed a sound-art
commission for Locator Art Festival 08 and is relocating to Berlin in
June to record a new album.
