Here’s a new CD by Antye Greie-Ripatti otherwise known as AGF to you and me. I’m sure I’ve heard her music at some point over the last few years but no bells are ringing but seeing as though I can’t remember what I did yesterday that doesn’t mean very much.
On this new CD which has landed on Richard Chartier’s LINE imprint is the entire audio is constructed using her voice and the the sounds in the room around her. From the off it’s an interesting listen. Eerie breathy vocals drone away in their own low pitched multi-layered fashion. It’s both bizarre and beautiful at the same time. The audio on the CD is based around Yoik which is a mostly wordless form of singing/vocalization by the Sami tribe of northern Scandinavia and considered one of the longest living music traditions in Europe.
Some of the tracks don’t sound like they’re constructed with vocals at all as they’re strange glitchy electronics. I’ve no idea how the voice can be manipulated into sounding like half of the sounds on here but it’s fascinating. It’s a good headphones listen as well as there’s many layers and textures to the music. For me this is one of the more interesting LINE releases with plenty going on and knowing how the music has been made it makes you think whilst you’re enjoying the sounds. Excellent!
