Joachim Nordwall - MMXX-17 - Before it gets better, it will get worse (vinyl EP)
Matière Mémoire
Joachim Nordwall proposes for his contribution to the MMXX series a singular gesture built around captured vocalizations: the work's title, spoken by a number of voices, stands as doubling mantra and raw material, increasingly repeated layered, processed, and fed with further tonal and textural interventions over its duration, allowing Nordwall to push the boundaries of his own practice, between musique concrète, sound-art, and experimental electroacoustic music.
