Fairy & the River Teeth ~ digital release

s o u n d   a r t   c o l l e c t i o n

First solo collection made for Sonospace by Manja Ristić has particular imaginative atmosphere, created through an attempt to produce organic integration of field recordings and instrumental improvisation. The author builds fractal structures with the sounds from her immediate surrounding and amplifies their original information through careful processing, intuitive composing and concept.

The collection has rather eclectic tone and deals with emotional states of isolation and mental claustrophobia building the almost dystopian escapes with ambient textures and unusual instrumental lyricism.

Ristić Džukljev Duo ~ Digital Release

Ristić Džukljev duo is presenting its third (self-released) digital album recorded with the audience at The Institute for Culture of Vojvodina, Novi Sad, April 2017.

From prepared piano to detuned violin, cardboard and balloon noises, improvisational approaches of the duo are sculpturing complex acoustic narratives reflecting darksome but emotionally charged atmosphere. In this musically rich "space" every little microtonal cluster, fragment of a melody or harsh noise has its own specific character. Carefully placed in abstract timeframe, phrases, or better to say sound scenes, are unraveling almost macabre reality evoking imaginative listening.

Salt pit & other memories

s o u n d  a r t 

the track Salt pit & other memories is made of several field recordings taken from different approaches, for example, the sound of sea breaking the waves is recorded from the inside of 1 meter deep salt pit, later the acoustics of the pit are amplified. further, the sound of walking over rocks is recorded with JrF hydrophone, producing not so typical sound when recording in the air, and the piano improvisation is recorded from inside an old piano, enriching the sound with harmonics and crackling of an old mechanism.

locations where recorded are Glogovac, Lenga, Rt Ražnjić, filed in Pupnat, an old open air quarries and the lighthouse, and in-the-hill village, all on the island of Korčula.
