Organized sound compositions using recordings from Monteiro's home environment, compositing acoustic sound without adding electronic effects processing.
Monteiro, Alfredo Costa
Anatomy of Inner Place
Released in: Poland
"The title Anatomy of Inner Place hints that Monteiro might be continuing his bodily self-examination on the MonotypeRec release but, in fact, the recording is an exploration of his domestic environment, with every sound source originating from home and used as it was recorded with no electronic effects or processing except for dynamics. No identification of origins is provided for the four untitled sections so the listener can only speculate as to what's producing a specific sound. For all one knows, it's the rhythmic whirr of a fridge that appears in part one, and the vaporous flow of amplified steam that accounts for the billowing drone and muffled blasts in part two. A consistent alternation between episodes of high-volume intensity and microsound simmer characterizes part three while insectile thrum rises above steely emissions in part four. To Monteiro's credit, he shapes his "industrial drone" material with care and resists the impulse to lacerate the listener with the type of ear-shredding moments to which less disciplined practitioners might fall prey."-Textura
