Blank Forms: Bettmümpfeli and Lydslåttars with Tyler Maxin

New York, 08.06.24

A brisk, interwoven sampler of Swiss and Norwegian musical cuts, charting an assortment of parallel but distinctive approaches to timbre, rhythm, and sonic space: consider the associations and subtle variations contained in the spectra between Trümpis versus munnharpes, naturjodels versus lokks and joiks, Schwyzerörgeli ländlers versus hardingfele waltzes, alpine versus cross-country. Electroacoustic compositions and environmental sounds—train rides, distant cows, melting ice-caps—are stitched throughout.
