michael northam
"memory of A"

31 january 2009

artwork: delphine ancelle-b.

based on cassette recordings on a microtuned tubular zylophone while under an unusual winter rain at the adishakti center, vazhakulam, pondicherry, india (december 2007). mixed at the hobbit hole, kreuzberg, berlin (july/aug 2008)


michael northam could be considered as much as a sound artist as a world traveller... his work is the continuation of more than fifteen years of visiting, working with and learning from over ninety artists (jgrzinich, yannick dauby, loren chasse, martin franklin, francisco lopez or hitoshi kojo/spiracle to name a few) over fifty locations in twenty-five countries!
a perfect example is this piece recorded in india then mixed in germany, probably rawer nad rougher than some of his other works...
