‘Crisis – What Crisis?’ by Carl Max

There is an old Buddhist adage that says;
“Before great good, comes great evil”
The impetus for creating this piece are the conflicting voices and sounds of the media (radio/TV/newspapers), and metropolitan life during this recessionary period.

I was also interested in the confusion between certain news bulletins, human anger, individual hopelessness and the confused cacophony emanating from city streets in England and in The USA.

The contrast between the sounds of impending doom coupled with an underlying sense of a potentially positive future are melancholic, strong and sometimes even funny.

‘Eine Ganz Reelle Zahl’ by Heidrun Schramm

Name: Heidrun Schramm
Link: http://www.myspace.com/sonatarec or http://www.virb.com/sonatarec
Location: Berlin, Germany

Title: Eine ganz reelle Zahl (Sound of Zero)
Basis of this conceptual sound composition: the word “Null” sampled from German TV newscast “Tagesschau” as one of the most frequently used word at the beginning of the economic crisis. Different drones of the stretched word “Null” (english: zero, null) – move like waves, side by side, or one after the other, from major to minor. Out of this soundtrack, the original sound appears: “Null” – “Komma” – “Vier” – “Komma” – “Drei” – “Null” – “Wachstum”.
