  • A new instability 12' LP
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    In 2019, the swiss power-acoustic musician Francisco merino presented 'a new instability' a commission for the venerable ina-grm in Paris. of course, this institution is the pre-eminent center for the research and study of electro-acoustic music dating back to founding of groupe de recherches musicales in 1958 by Pierre Schaeffer. to this day, ina-GRM continues to be at the avant garde of the electro-acoustic composition, and it is quite an accomplishment and very appropriate for Meirino to receive such a commission.

    This recording for 'a new instability' condenses the 32-channel original piece down to a still very active stereo version. here, Meirino continues to amplify and refine his compositions that walk a fine tightrope between raw expressivity of brutalist noise and conceptual rigor of more academic pursuits. such a work ranks him in with the likes of Zbigniew Karkowski, Dave Phillips, Puce Mary, and Illusion Of Safety.

    Field recordings from a martial arts dojo in his hometown of Lausanne cast a pugilistic, combative arch to these recordings which snap, burst, explode, and erupt with utterances of men and women engaged in hand-to-hand combat. seering frequencies build, swarm, and amass out of these episodes rise to a psychologically tense crescendo that rupture at their heights, quickly turning attention towards a violence that originates from within. it is as if the objective observations of those martial arts recordings are sublimated within a subjective experience of psychic unease, disquiet, and imbalance.

    'A New Instability' is another magnificent chapter in the ongoing body of work for this accomplished composer of electro-acoustic noise.
