A Point Between by Floating Spectrum

Mei-Fang Liau presents her debut album as Floating Spectrum. Using noises of everyday household objects and her collection of customised synthesisers and other musical programmes - including a generative system that turns visual data into sound - A Point Between is much more than just a technological marvel, but an artistic one too.

Glossing over the fact that Taiwan-born Mei-Fang Liau is now living and making music in Berlin -- actually no, let’s not ‘gloss over’ but I’m going to calmly state, then accept and… celebrate(?) this bit of information by acknowledging that people have a right to live wherever they like. Even if that place is a city already overpopulated with musicians carrying iPhones; here’s Floating Spectrum with a lovely noise that she put together with the help of synths and household objects. A canny craft this audio-technologizing, yes, but it’s also a highly skilled and laborious process infused with love, which I accept.

I mean, Liau made her own ‘fractal-inspired’ software synthesizer called Polyphylla to assemble these lush, organically growing and weaving sounds currently entering my ears. The process is about simulating the ways in which nature makes seemingly complex forms out of cycles with very slight variations upon an original simple shape. Without pretending to understand how exactly that works it translates that into audio waves which can then be interpreted by my primitive human cortex. These are some subtly shifting sound-shapes which are quite gorgeous. Lovely, shape-shifting drones and dark ambient textures (from Berlin).
