Aaron Martin Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Influence is usually a one way straight. A musician is inspired by something, that something is left in the lurch. On Touch Dissolves, Aaron Martin upsets the norm and finds himself in dialogue with photographer Yusuf Sevinçli. The result is a series of dynamic drones, always underpinned by Martin's weighty Cello playing and the memory of Sevinçli's works.
Leftover stuff from the Hymn Binding and Menashe sessions is what we have here, showing a fuller and heavier sound than was appropriate for Menashe especially. Yes, it’s From the Mouth of the Sun, known individually on Earth as indefatigable drone cellist Aaron Martin and fizzy drone laptopist Dag Rosenqvist. If sullen synths and very emotional cello vibrato are your jam, you’re in the right place. But be quick - a hundred copies only.

Aaron Martin & Machinefabriek
After their Cello Recycling / Cello Drowning collaboration for Type in 2007, always-on microsound sculptor Machinefabriek (Rutger Zuydervelt) and reputable ambient cellist Aaron Martin next joined forces in 2012, scoring a dance piece for Ivan Peréz. Here are the fruits of that commission, with layers of cello and vocals treated in various ways to produce quiet and dramatic textures.
A Pulse Passes From Hand To Hand is the recorded debut of this collaborative project, in which Jeremy Young (Sontag Shogun) meets Aaron Martin. The two trade ambience back and forth to one another using cello, guitar and tapes; each track has a backbone of a looped fragment of piano. Delicate activities on White Paddy Mountain.
