Ido Govrin - Erratum
Interval Recordings IL09
Erratum takes as its point of departure a conceptual juxtaposition of Marcel Duchamp's Erratum Musicale and John Cage's museumcircle to further reflect upon the concepts of error and failure in art. Erratum comes in the form of a single interdisciplinary multiple containing (in a clamshell box) a custom-made 10" vinyl record* and a series of seven (7) litho-prints**.

* A 15-minute-long music composition, composed by the artist, is pressed on the vinyl record via a unique erratic process of record printing which experimentally guarantees the success (or failure) of audio playback. Voice: Rebecca Gimmi, Daniella Sanader, and an unrecognized 3rd person.

** Greyscale litho-prints (11 x 15", Ogunigami Japanese paper, 36 g), which ghostly expose specific stations throughout the Via Dolorosa (in Jerusalem's old city), are made using a similar printing technique.

Erratum is numbered and signed, limited to one copy worldwide.

Adaya Godlevsky - Seam
Interval Recordings IL08

"Seam", Adaya Godlevsky's debut release on Interval Recordings, marks yet another challenging release of the label's ongoing musical output. Along its 13 chapters, Godlevsky uses her celtic harp and voice to gently constitute seams; seams as boarder lines between strumming and scratching a string, between tapping the sound box and an arpeggio flow, between a classically notated composition and improvised music derived from a graphic score. The seam is always and already the boarder line, presence in this release as a result of Godlevsky's different artistic practices; performance, composition, playing and singing.

Duprass - Galut (Diaspora)
Interval Recordings IL07

‘Galut (Diaspora)’ was created as a radio drama. Nonetheless, it was originally exhibited as a sound installation at ‘Barbur’ gallery in Jerusalem (Solo Exhibition, March 3rd to March 31st 2011). The installation, consisted of eight audio channels and text, as well as a single painting hanged on the gallery’s wall, has gone through another artistic mutation as presented to you here; the piece was mixed down to stereo signal and mastered to single CD format. Despite of that fact that the exhibition catalog was printed only in Hebrew, we formally publish the catalog together with this release for the interest of listeners who cannot understand its original language, both audibly and visually.

Kiki Keren-Huss - Mi/Me
Interval Recordings IL06

Mi/Me, Kiki Keren-Huss' debut release on Interval Recordings, is a chamber opera for four singers, six players and electronics. It somewhat came into being about 18 years ago through an obscure image the composer had had during a sleepless night. That image, hallucinated, as a hyper-real desire and thought, draw a woman confronting her man while another man, a-la Lewis Carol's plot, getting taller and taller threatening to perform a cannibalistic act upon her. The couple, apparently, tries to escape... the seed had been sown.
The opera Mi/Me is a journey into the inner world of a woman, following the many voices of her consciousness. There is no linear narrative in Mi/Me. The four characters and six players are playing, singing and moving on the stage most of the time with no connection to one another. They take part in dreamlike situations that dissipate like soap bubbles.
Out of all these voices a complex multi-layered world evolves. The world of Mi/Me.

Jennifer Walshe - Nature Data
Interval Recordings IL05

‘Why is the phoneme the most ‘ideal’ of signs? Where does this complicity between sound and ideality, or rather, between voice and ideality, come from? When I speak, it belongs to the phenomenological essence of this operation that I hear myself [je m’entende] at the same time that I speak. The signifier, animated by my breath and by the meaning-intention, is in absolute proximity to me. The living act, the life-giving act, the Lebendigkeit, which animates the body of the signifier and transforms it into a meaningful expression, the soul of language, seems not to separate itself from itself, from its own self-presence.’ [J.Derrida, the Voice That Keeps Silence, Speech and Phenomena]
Voice – Breath – Signifier; Walshe’s debut release on Interval Recordings signifies the temporary hidden space, the interval, just about to be revealed. ‘Nature Data’, the album’s title, captures Walshe’s unique voice in the field of sonic arts and performance; as a becoming-animal, becoming-nature, her voice, breaths and all occurrences in between, audible and not, signifies that data, as nature, as presence.

Ido Govrin - Moraine
Interval Recordings IL04

‘Moraine’ by Ido Govrin is composed of exquisite sound qualities consisting of restrained gestures of simultaneous assembling and disassembling processes, slow though diligent creation holds a promise for total collapse, destruction, and as such, fills the listener with sweet sadness and longing. The album’s name, ‘Moraine’, indicates the working process but not just that. Moraine is a geological phenomenon created when the bedrock underneath is scoured and crushed by the movement and extreme pressure of a glacier eventually to the size of dust grains. It is being transported beneath the glacier’s infrastructure as a thick stratum of solid substance and creates various forms throughout the plateau. In ‘Moraine’, Ido Govrin investigates the micro level of sound process where vast amount of sound partials are being generated and manipulated; blocs of sonic substance creates morphed sound strata. Continuous forms and entities of sound collide into each other, crushed and woven into one another; the acoustic gale seems to briefly appear as a spatial object, dwelling in space. Promptly afterwards, the stratification and deterritorialization continues simultaneously. The six electro-acoustic pieces exhibited in ‘Moraine’ were partly created by the analysis-re-synthesis process of acoustic instruments (Cello and Violin) and partly by a pure computer generated process of sound.

Mem1 - +1
Interval Recordings IL03

‘… unlike trees or their roots, the rhizome connects any point to any other point, and its traits are not necessarily linked to traits of the same nature; it brings into play very different regimes of signs, and even non-sign states. The rhizome is reducible neither to the one not the multiple. It is not the One that becomes Two or even directly three, four, five…’ [Deleuze & Guattari (1980): A Thousand Plateaus]
+1 , Interval Recordings' second release by Los Angeles-based electroacoustic duo Mem1 (Mark + Laura Cetilia), introduces listeners to a series of collaborations between the duo and nine guest artists: Jan Jelinek, Ido Govrin, Area C, RS-232, Frank Bretschneider, Kadet Kuhne, Jen Boyd, Jeremy Drake, and Steve Roden. Whether the collaborations took place in an old cabin by the lake, on a hot and hazy day in a painter's studio, or floating through the infinite void of virtual space, the resulting works act as transportive vessels. Removing us from our surroundings, they deliver us to a place that cannot exist in our daily lives, a transformative space in which impossible realities collide and time ceases to exist. Comprised of lush tapestries, fuzzy dissonances, echoed rhythms and waves of electronic wash,  +1  is electroacoustic chamber music for the twenty-first century.

Various Artists - Nothing Works As Planned
Interval Recordings IL02
This double CD presents diverse approaches to the phrase ‘nothing works as planned' by nine composers and sound artists. Each and every one of them captures a singular moment which was compiled together to create an esthetic sonic statement of reason and beauty.
‘Nothing works as planned' is comprised of live recordings of concerts in Tel Aviv and New York. The double CD is a documentation of a series, entitled “Nothing Works as planned”, which held at the above mentioned cities and was premiered at the Tel Aviv Biennale of New Music hosted by the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. The premier took place in a large suite of galleries that was between exhibitions and therefore void of art work. The high ceilings, long reverberation and departure from conventional concert seating made for a cathedral-like setting and proved to be an ideal site for the concert of works featuring electronics, small ensembles and large video projections. The series continued with a concert at the Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, New York. IPR is located in a circular tower that was once a silo situated on the Gowanus Canal . Again, the unconventional setting and the unique acoustical space made an ideal venue for the performance of experimental music.

Mem1 - Alexipharmaca
Interval Recordings IL01
Alexipharmaca, Mem1’s second full-length album, is a collection of
improvised works that capture the allure of the forbidden and dangerous, and the modern fascination with things ancient and shrouded in mystery.
The album’s title is taken from a set of poems written by Nicander of
Colophon, a Greek pharmacologist (fl. 197-130 B.C.E.), whose text
deals with plant and animal poisons and their antidotes.
Mem1’s music intoxicates with its rich textures and lavish soundscapes, but — like a beautiful yet deadly flower — something ominous inevitably lurks beneath the surface. While toxic substances can bring elation and seemingly endless bliss, they can be lethal in large doses. Alexipharmaca provides the opportunity to experience this sublime demise through the saturation of aural splendor.

Amnon Wolman - Sustains
Interval Recordings IL00
'Sustains' is an hypnotic journey to Mr. Wolman's musical personality, a journey into sound and silence, thoughts and feelings, mixed together in a unique way… and the journey sustains, fades in and out of a dream like state where the music is no longer only define notes and sound structures – it is a whole living form.
'Sustains' contains sound pieces, samples and original sound synthesis structures which has a strong sense of orchestral and classical music being digitally processed, experimental drones in form of dark matter, sound of the inner life of machines, instruments, and humans, creating gentle fragments of existence to produce a coherent creation of fine art. Music at its most pure moments as a form of art where there's no need for images or expressive symbols to generate a process… yet the music, on top of being a musical inspiration per se, creates musical moments as cinematic as an avant-garde film.
