We are delighted that Robert Curgenven will be returning to SOUNDkitchen next week to perform MASS, a work that is created from pipe organs in Cornwall and treated through dub aesthetics via early 20th century acetates, dubplates, new vinyl and custom low frequency oscillators to blend the all important hiss and doubling of displaced time inspired by the deep bass-soaked physical immersion of dub sound-system culture.

This month Curgenven recently released his new 12″ of pipe organ works, SIRÈNE which was one of Boomkat’s Albums of the Week. Check out this excerpt and more on his site

Robert Curgenven is a composer/sound artist drawing on the physicality of sound – not just the physical impact on the body but the way in which the auditory can shape our perception of space and the flow of time, from architectural to open space. His works span pipe organ through to feedback, immersive resonances via turntables and custom-made vinyl, as well as carefully detailed field recordings from remote areas in Australia where he lived for many years. The Wire surmises that “behind the music—to these ears at any rate—lurk such [disparate] presences as Alvin Lucier, King Tubby, Murray Schafer and Eliane Radigue.”
