New Forces presents the latest full-length CD from Kjostad, Music For Organic Performance. These six new recordings emerged from solitary performances conducted on-location in northern Minnesota. An attempt to rethink the collection of “source sounds” and invite the listener into moments that would be otherwise inaccessible. Electronics and other machines were introduced later in the process, a form of synthesis that added additional depth and contradiction to the original recordings. Listeners will feel the edges of glaciated stone, the ridges of tree bark, and the hollow concussions of driftwood deep in their ears. An exploration of physical sounds and concussive resonances. Mastered by Grant Richardson.
