Lateral Addition es una plataforma online de publicaciones sonoras, textuales y contextuales, o lo que podríamos llamar un netlabel que escapa a los cánones habituales de los sellos de discos online: su diseño es horizontal, lateral, táctil. Su propuesta es la siguiente:
Lateral Addition aspires to enrich the dialogues among contemporary practices in sound – improvisation, digital music, ‘sound art,’ etc. – and other areas of current media and visual arts. In order to nurture the growth of these connections, it serves to further elucidate the often esoteric methodologies and thoughts of artists working with sound through original audio material.
Editado por Eric Laska, Lateral Addition es una propuesta con base en Philadelphia y que se extiende en la red de manera tangencial, guerrillera, su uso de las redes es plausible. Os dejamos a continuación una de sus publicaciones firmadas por Rubén Patiño.
11. Uneven Developments
Uneven Developments is conceived as two independent monophonic compositions of synthetic sounds to be played simultaneously.
Diverse sonic events with varying duration and volume appear and behave independently on each channel. While the palette of sounds may be quite similar on both channels due to the uniform method of sound generation that is based on and inspired by analog modules, the aim of this piece is to reconsider the dominant consensus regarding the notion of stereo sound. Therefore, a central and fixed position for listening is not required and “uneven” or “unusual” speaker arrangements are strongly encouraged.
The piece is born out of two sound collages made with digitally generated sounds from Supercollider and includes processed recordings realized at the BEA5 analog studio of The Institute of Sonology in The Hague, 2013.
