Jeph Jerman – ‘Grayware’ CS
Jeph Jerman is a notable sound artist of the American experimental/noise music scene, a curious sonic explorer of the different qualities of sound. He started practising with recording and performing from the mid-80’s, improvising with natural found objects and constructed crude sound-making devices which play on their own. He experiments with various recording techniques, using stereo digital recorders, old analog tape machines, contact mics and hydrophones. “Grayware” is summarising his recent multidisciplinary approach of his sonic material. Jeph Jerman’s archival recordings distressed in various ways and recomposed here, producing convincing sounds the origins of which are unknowable. Abstraction of the music form turn listener’s attention ever toward the sounds themselves, which are occasionally interrupted by sound events that change the structure and the flow of the composition.
