Freida Abtan - Subtle Movements CD

Freida Abtan - Subtle Movements CD

£6.00
It's a collection of her favorite pieces, combining her love of electro-acoustic music with her love of found melody. Two of the songs that appear on the album are collaborations with Steven Stapleton of Nurse with Wound. They were recorded in Colin Potter's studio in Preston, England when Freida travelled there to play a show as part of Scribble Seven in March 2006 alongside Steven, Colin, Andrew Liles, Matt Waldron, Joolie Wood, and Maja Elliott. REVIEW FROM BRAINWASHED : btan’s sounds are magical and transportive; their vivid fidelity and unequivocal crispness weave particular narratives with no small degree of confidence. From the beginning her work is organic, sounding less like music and more like the recorded adventures of an entrepreneurial and esoteric detective probing the deepest recesses of haunted caverns and finding hidden worlds tucked away there. In this way the title of her album reflects its content; that which is hidden, unnoticed, or too subtle is brought to the fore by Abtan’s careful arrangements and given a detailed survey. An entire spectrum of insectoid percussion and globular synthetics are revealed in her compositions, their microscopic lives brought to life by gusts of electricity and storming spirits trapped behind a veil of static and other interference. What Abtan does best on Subtle Movements is construct a believable world of sounds, each unique and absorbing in their various depictions. She’s captured the megalomaniacal rituals of a modern electrical shaman on tape, teased from the air the tortured confessions of a now reformed specter, and ploughed the ether in order to return a report of all its miniscule interactions.btan’s sounds are magical and transportive; their vivid fidelity and unequivocal crispness weave particular narratives with no small degree of confidence.
