A few months later A Perfect Negative, Amsterdam-based composer and sound artist Cinema Perdu (aka Martijn Pieck) returns with a new work. Interventions in a landscape will be out tomorrow November 28th via Moving Forniture Records. “Leihoek” and “IJmuiden” are the two first excerpts. Listen below.
The four tracks on “Interventions in a landscape” give a voice to the coastal landscape where human intervention is evident. The intervention creates a certain strengthening of contrasts, for instance at the Leihoek between the ever moving sea and the silent firm dyke.
Though, at the coastline the weather, the sounds, the light and even the smell are always playing an important role on how someone experiences the coastal landscape. Therefore the tracks do not only reflect on the places mentioned, but also a specific moment in time of being there.
The music takes you on a reflective journey along these places where the human impact on our surroundings is directly evident by creating an atmosphere in which you can place yourself, without ever been to these four specific places.
