Bill Fontana is a leading pioneer of sound as sculpture. In as much as sculpture is an investigation of space and a way of articulating our feelings about being in any given space sound is a very large component of that perceptual context. Blindfolded we can know that we are in a cathedral like space or an underground car park. Clues such as traffic sound, bird song, water running or the rumble of machinery all contribute powerfully to our feelings and knowledge of a specific space. Fontana writes: I began my artistic career as a composer. What really began to interest me was not so much the music that I could write, but the states of mind I would experience when I felt musical enough to compose. In those moments, ‘when I became musical, all the sounds around me also became musical’.

We look into the touching, awkward new film about Bill Callahan, Apocalypse: A Bill Callahan Tour Film, in the new issue of Uncut, dated April 2013, and out now. As a companion piece, check out this fantastic piece with Callahan, aka Smog, recalling how he made his greatest albums, from May 2010’s Uncut (Take 156). I’m somewhere between a gumshoe and a journalist, Callahan says. A writer, not a symbol. I don’t want to be a performer who gets applause for quitting the bottle or for not committing suicide. There is such a thing as fiction.

The Sonore ultraRendu project is an extension of the microRendu project that came before it. The design is inspired by audiophile gear and meant to bring grace and simplicity to a microcomputer. The original microRendu was very small and intended to be hidden out of sight behind your other gear. The ultraRendu remains as an Ethernet input and USB-Audio output, but all the connectors are located on the rear of the unit for easy cable routing.

A brilliant trombonist who has spent much of the past 40 years playing commercial music in Las Vegas, Carl Fontana occasionally emerges to remind listeners just how technically skilled he is. The so. ead Full Biography. Overview . Biography . Discography . Songs .
