Mobiles Project on Another Timbre

I had the opportunity to take part in a very cool project as part of the Another Timbre “Mobiles” project. Link to a description here.

My mobile was mixed/curated by Samuel Rodgers, and includes contributions from Angharad Davies and Rie Nakajima. Other mobiles are curated by Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga and Johnny Chang.

Although the mobiles are meant to be open and flexible, with the tracks mixed as desired by the listener or even mixed with additional tracks, one realization is available on soundcloud, below.

Codiaeum track in online compilation

A new compilation called Psychoacoustic Cartography is available on 14 Tracks that includes a track from Codieaum Variegatum, “Strongly Leaning with Irregular Crown.” Sharing the bill with some great stuff by excellent artists, including Ingram Marshall and Janek Schaefer, check it out if you can!

ATTN Magazine

Last but not least, an excerpt from a review in Wire Magazine, April 2014:

“Anne Guthrie in a acoustician and French horn player whose compositions offer a finely tuned mixture of field recordings and instruments. For material so delicate in its pacing and character, there is a refreshing lack of preciousness about the source material. Sources are indistinguishable as often as they are clear, and treated as often as they are clean, so these piece function neither as authentic documents of a place nor as showcases for instrumental techniques. Codiaeum Variegatum seems more interested in the ability of these elements to create new places by virtue of their juxtaposition and interaction.

It’s a delight to hear the way the pieces slowly find and dissolve form. They are relatively short and contain movements within themselves, yet nothing feels hurried. The most pleasing aspect is the way that questions about methods – is that a loop? Are those birds or electronics? – while present and worthy of attention, are secondary to the overall atmosphere. At the end of the careful and intricate processes Guthrie employed to craft these pieces, she is asking us simply to sit back and listen.”
