CONTROL VALVE #042 IS NOW READY FOR DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
artist: The Kingston Family Singers
title: “First Grand Ashlar”
Bio/statement: Musical/Sound/Video based entity of Belleville, IL, USA based multimedia organization, MaxCorp Industries.
Current Members: Maxwell Ullyses Kingston, S.H. Kingston, Walter Kingston
Album Concept/Process: Normally, the Kingston "noise recording" process is live, no overdubs, and only minor dynamic corrections (compression, limiting, etc) afterwards, if needed.
However, for this project, a different strategy was employed; numerous "field recordings" all 5 minutes in length, were recorded within the time of one day. Some of these recordings included S.H. walking out of work, walking through Wal-Mart, a haphazard and a more monitored recording of drumming, singing bowls, sequenced Moog synth, etc. On top of this, a 10 minute or so noise set was recorded. These recordings were all pieced together by Maxwell. The intent was to try and hew something of form out of the amorphous; all the things that were happening around us, both the things planned by us and not.
Perhaps it is not the perfect ashlar, but each consecutive stroke of the mallet to the chisel is one step closer to the Light.
