GOUGH, HELENA - WITH WHAT REMAINS (CD)


"Helena gough's debut album consists of seven soundworks, conceived as spaces to enter. Within these spaces sounds are born, then evolve, disintegrate and sometimes die. Each is created using a minimum of raw material, usually derived from recordings of small sounds and domestic noises. This material is pulled apart until its roots are severed and it becomes free from its original ties. Efforts are made to find a balance between spontaneity and precision. Rarely is there a resolution or a direct linear progression from A to B; often it is something closer to A into A - ideas turn in on themselves. Textures appear to be still but are always in motion. This microscopic approach is a focus of the way in which sounds are treated. Helena gough is a Birmingham-based sound artist.
