Quiet Design presents 'Hearing is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Hears'. In these five pieces, we find a new concept of minimalism. Based on the philosophy of artist Robert Irwin, these works are a post-structuralist approach which focus on the invocation of pure aural sensation. What emerges are eloquent, sustaining fragments of sound, modulating in networks of melody, suspended in a system with no edges.
'Hearing is Forgetting' explores the very root of electronic sound, organic motion, and minimalist composition. The unique, non-generative compositional rules allow the works to sustain an open, organic sound-field which remains present while being absent, and musical while in a mode of stasis. When listened attentively as much as passively, the album's title comes clear and with it, a mesmeric self-organizing synergy arises.
This cd is accompanied by a 12 page booklet of graphic design by the artist.
