Open Corner – Empty Pool To No CD
Here, Asha Sheshadri and Christian Mirande record together as Open Corner. Vocal accounts of mundane suburbia and human despondency by Asha, under a woven forest of pops and cracks and creaks courtesy of Christian. In a way the texts are reminiscent of Robert Ashley‘s “Au Pair” pieces — from the second Atalanta CD (LCD 3303CD) — overrun by the swamp of a broken dishwasher and a leaking wine fridge. Emotionally and sonically claustrophobic. A unique take on voice and sound: in-between an audiobook and a sound-map. Exhausted and hungover, the frequencies and intense proximity really fit the digital CD format. Here is your chance to revitalize the ? Records weapon of choice… First edition of 200.
