Show 898: Machines Making Machines Machines Making Machines by Philip Curach for Diffusion 107

Machines Making Machines started four years ago as a daily exercise in journalistic sonic recordings. Tracks were actualised using both analogue and digital synthesizers and a variety of effects pedals. Created as single-take improvised happenings with minimal editing and mixing done live, each track was then uploaded as a personal online record.
Recording sessions have now metamorphosised. Tracks are still created under an improvised meditative state though are now revisited and refined with a reflective consideration on the initial intent. Drawing heavily from the ability of sound to induce imagery, tracks begun to take on a Four-Act Structure akin to storytelling.
A curated merging of tracks, both old and new, this piece is best considered as a ritualistic undertaking transporting the listener. The work explores textures and tonalities of both abrasive industrial percussive sounds cogitating a claustrophobic surreality, contrasted to ethereal symphonic states of saudade.
