A Pulse TrainTactus Tempus
First up is Tactus Tempus - a recording of two live performances of a graphic based score from 1973 by a temporary 'synth supergroup' featuring members of Caribou, Floating Points, Hot Chip, Junior Boys and Simian Mobile Disco.
Following shortly in no particular order is a conceptual LP of contemporary Canadian sound art, an EP of hardware based techno tools that hybridize the Canadian Tundra and Detroit in equal measure and an album of modern healing gong music recorded in one of the world's most advanced audio research laboratories.
Tactus Tempus is a, lost, graphics based, experimental score by prolific composer Frank McCarty. The piece was originally conceived and performed in 1973 by McCarty's group BIOME on 5 EMS Synthi synthesizers.
By following a set of simple, yet subjective instructions the piece begins as a sparse moire pattern of bursts and tones before evolving in density and intensity as the players symbiotically interact guided only by the illustrated curve found on the score.
