Australian drummer and sound artist Vanessa Tomlinson announced the release of a new album. The Space Inside is a two tracks album and it is out on Septmeber 7th via ROOM40. “The Space Inside For Solo Tam Tam” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
With the The Space Inside Tomlinson sets out a very specific set of conditions to explore; a method for creating the opportunity for intense exploration within the recorded format. This is a vertical music, one that starts on a single plane and descends and ascends from that point. Her work here is characterised by a deep focus and engagement with singular objects; specifically the concert bass drum and the tam tam.
Each of her chosen instruments on this recording produce both audible and physical vibrations. It is this potential of the transcendence between the ears and the body that guides Tomlinson’s approach to each of the compositions recorded here. This is music to be consumed. by.
