is Of Ghosts and Buildings (the song) part of The Crackle of My Soul ?

soulCRACKle said...

yes,track two,following "signalling through the flames and preceding "maglev".

vanishing wolf said...

sounds brilliant - Calvino would be proud ! ;-)

spaewaif said...

The whole track is absolutely stunning,
I am proud the blog has the same title!

anti-nihil said...

well,in truth,the blog had the title first.the track was originally called (cough) invisible cities... absolutely inspired by that wondrous calvino book.but it was only really a working title.when jon sko did his review
of the cindytalk gig in kobe 2005,the new title became obvious and at
around the same time this blog was christened too...

grrrr said...

"christened",what a horrible word!!!see how we become with such upbringings...

spaewaif said...

Yes,the title was perfect for the track and still retains that
mysterious magic that makes "Invisible Cities" so very special.
Hidden cities,cities of desire,cities and memory.
Forever thanks to the Colombian friend who took me to a bookshop and said,here,buy this book.

When the track was added to this blog (without the post that mentions the upcoming releases), my first reaction was that Spaewaif accidently recorded something at home, liked the outcome and named it 'Of Ghosts...'

Of course I wasn't truly listening, but too busy with other stuff...

spaewaif said...

Oh,God,no,as if !
The very thought!
at home,ha!

ghostee said...

the track was recorded in spaewaif's home but not by her... thanks for sharing that little insight though,eh ;-/

... was recorded at an undisclosed location in Japan ...

Got 3 words for ya: Location Location Location! said...

shhh.... I'm invisible

the fox-eyed man said...

however, had the track been the same (or had it existed at all), were it not for a home as opposed to a studio?

perspex said...

you might have to rephrase that question if you want an answer.i'm not quite sure what you are saying or asking...

Plastic Orcadian said...

Mr Perspex claimed to be invisible, but I saw right through him.

taketwo said...

I guess I meant to ask if a 'true' studio setting would've resulting in a different track. I AM a layman, so apologies if to you a studio equals spaewaif's home.

circumstances and surroundings will always have an impact but nowadays,with all the requisite tools in your computer it doesn't necessarily matter where you record.if you have a fully equipped studio with engineer at hand you can definately explore a lot more and the chances are the work will have more scope.the way i see it is that we work with what we have and make the best set of music we can with the tools and assistance at hand."the crackle of my soul" is a "solo" work made using voice,turntables,dj mixer,keyboard,field recordings and sampling tools... i didn't have speakers so i used headphones which is not necessarily the best way to make music but that in turn helped to create a microscopic quality to the sound.it's probably best heard on headphones too.i was trying to take the listener into a fragmented and decayed state of mind where sound has disintegrated into a series of signals and high pitched frequencies,where music as we know it still exists but merely flickers around the edges and we only catch glimpses.voices
exist but they too become signal communications,faint and lost inside the static...

oops,sorry.it should have read "cd mixer",not dj mixer.

becoming less invisible & getting more interesting.
