A new City Frequencies track has been included on the new Clan Analogue compilation album Distance: Sounds for an Empty Space. This is a compilation of (mostly) Australian drone music, available via streaming, download and limited edition cassette.
For more about the album, head to the Clan Analogue website. There are some great artists on the release, including Kazumichi Grime, Nicole Skeltys, Michael Mildren, iubar project and Jennifer Lea.
Our City Frequencies track “The Interests of Entities” is built from the combination of two different audio phenomena that represent the hidden forms of communication and technology that surround us. Firstly, a software defined radio frequency scanner makes audible the radio signals around us we are not meant to hear, from the artifacts of the software scanning process itself, the ethereal spaces between radio stations and transmitters to the electronic byproducts of a digitally connected landscape, all occurring at frequencies above 30 Mhz and recorded from within the heart of the city.
My twenty-five year career as a musician covers composition, performance and teaching, with a focus on electronic music and sound art.
I have also been known as Nick Fakeman, n-Entropy, Professor Entropy and Nicholas Bates at various times in my career.
Musical projects have included Tiatto, Random Acts of Elevator Music, Reductionist, Continuum, The Entwined and Space Is Ace, guest appearances with Winduptoys, Philosophy of Sound and Re-Sound and various production credits. I have also worked on several sound installation projects, including City Frequencies, Cafe Voyeur and Bush Resonance. Over the last ten years I have managed the Clan Analogue record label.
My professional interests include:
• Teaching and training
• Music composition and performance
• Independent art project administration
Currently I am employed as an Audio Lecturer at SAE Institute. This blog will be a forum to write about various things that interest me, mainly in the field of music but potentially further afield, depending on what grabs my attention.
