This cassette documents one of four live performances that comprised the Singalling Distance performance series that took place at the station’s Berlin studio over the course of 2019. The performance series brought together four pioneering contemporary exponents of electro-acoustic music, all of whom were invited to explore the dynamic relationship between microphone technique, the exigencies of acoustic sound transmission and the spatial complexities of live performance.

Tomoko Sauvage’s 34-minute performance, originally debuted and recorded on 04 April 2019, is a stunning point of entry into the series. Working with a “natural synthesizer” of her own invention— an intricate system of waterbowls, flowing water, ceramics and hydrophones—Sauvage's piece delicately unfolds with fragile, shimmering drones and undulations of textured noise. Sauvage playfully engages with sonic representation: her piece both faithfully renders the water, waves and bubbles out of which it is constructed and is somehow always eschews being reduced to it. Replete with gestural flourishes and yet a product of immense, patient focus, it is sure to send the listener into the depths of sonic reverie.

Signalling Distance was made possible thanks to the generous support of Initiative Neue Musik Berlin. A reportage and interview with each performer was made to accompany the live performances. You can find them on the Cashmere website here:
