Thursday on Ear Have Ears tune in for a special mix from Brisbane based composer and producer Leah Kardos.
Combing live instrumental performance with technology, location recordings and found sounds, Leah Kardos explores her fascinate with communicative power of timbre, psychoacoustic phenomena, memory and pattern recognition, and the magical inexpressible ways in which music connects to life.
Kardos occasionally releases music through the London-based label Bigo & Twigetti which showcases ambient, classical, folk and electronic music. Her most recent release 'Paris' is a two part celebration of Piano Day with Jim Perkins. Previously she's also released her album 'Feather Hammer' through the label in 2011 which you can listen to HERE.
Currently Kardos splits her time between performing, commercial projects, education and research. She is currently employed by Kingston University London as senior lecturer in music and course leader for BA Hons in Music Technology, as well as the acting director and Project Leader of the Visconti Studio.
Tune in Thursday to hear her mix of reconfigured tracks from a bunch of her previous releases created exclusively for Ears Have Ears!
This is an Australian track.
This is a mix featuring refigured elements from some of Leah Kardos' compositions from the last few years. 1. 00:00 - DFACE (from Feather Hammer, 2011) – it’s about that moment when you’re learning about how music works and it all clicks together: patterns, symmetry, magic. 2. 07:10 - Highly Active Girls (from Machines, 2013) from my song cycle based on spam emails, this piece is about trying to find emotional warmth via an interface, or at least an approximation of it. 3. 11:50 - The Closeness of Distance (from Machines, 2013) – connected to the previous piece, this time it’s about that feeling of intimacy and closeness you can achieve communicating with a stranger on the internet. 4. 15:50 - Little Phase (B&T Summer, 2016) – it felt like I was in a creative rut and all my heroes were dying in 2016, this piece expresses a bit of that melancholy.
This is a local artist.
