Long after the first two releases issued by Ground Fault and Edition Ellipsis,
and/OAR & Alluvial Recordings are pleased to finally be able to present the final
release in a trilogy covering the sonic expeditions of the French location-specific
electroacoustic trio Afflux (Eric La Casa, Jean-Luc Guionnet & Eric Cordier).
This release summarises what was initially a 6 hour performance / installation /
radio broadcast that occurred at the TNT cultural centre in Bordeaux, France.
The TNT centre is situated inside a former shoe manufacturing building.
With several hundred meters of cables, the exterior and interior of the building were
recorded using several different condenser and contact microphones, modified
and mixed in real time on a 32 channel mixing desk. Simultaneously, the live mix
was played into the concert hall / space using 8 channels for 8 loudspeakers.
While the improvisers were on the upper level, the audience was listening and
walking around on the lower level.
The final mix for the CD was edited by Eric La Casa.
