This week our feature soundtrack contribution comes from Shoshana Rosenberg, a bass clarinetist, composer and experimental musician, currently based in Adelaide.
Her practice champions the uniqueness and complexity produced by untrained musicianship and unpredictable sound sources. This includes her own lack of formal training, as well as her use of electronics and improvisation. Through her sounds and records she attempts to navigate and explore her relationship with God, gender, sexuality and mental illness.
On her soundtrack:
"Kibbush Nitzkhi (Eternal Occupation), for bass clarinet, gated reverb and Trogotronics. This soundtrack is inspired by Shoshana's experiences of growing up in Occupied Palestine aka Israel. In particular, the track focuses on the process of making sense of having one's body and identity inextricably linked with a history of forced settlement, displacement and murder. The track pits the bass clarinet against jarring electronics, forcing each to imitate the other and integrate. Whether the outcome is a success or a failure is up to the listener to decide." - Shoshana Rosenberg
