PRESS RELEASE

 

Kingston, NY, October 2, 2014 - ANNOUNCING THE RELEASE OF THE LIVE ALBUM DUNROBIN SONIC GEMS, DEEP LISTENING LABEL OFFERS"JOHINA" AS A FREE DOWNLOAD FROM DEEP LISTENING BAND

 

As a warm up to the release of the live album Dunrobin Sonic Gems, their 25th anniversary celebration recording, Deep Listening Band is offering"Johina", a cut from the concert sound-check, as a free online download through www.PaulineOliveros.us and the Dunrobin Sonic Gym website.


"Johina", an eight minute sound-check excerpt, promises to titillate the listeners eardrums in preparation for full immersion in the forthcoming live album Dunrobin Sonic Gems, a concert recording featuring Deep Listening Band founding members Stuart Dempster (trombone/didjeridu) and Pauline Oliveros (V accordion/conch) with guest artists Ione (spoken word and sonic vocals), Jonas Braasch (soprano sax) Jesse Stewart (percussion), Johannes Welsch (gongs), and Jeff Pratt (live sound and 'Cistern Simulation' blend). While "Johina" is available immediately for download (in both CD quality and MP3 format), Dunrobin Sonic Gems will be released October 8, 2014 on Deep Listening Label as CD as well as download. Both recordings feature the 'Cistern Simulation', a technology developed by Jonas Braasch in 2012, which recreates the acoustics of the iconic Dan Harpole Cistern where Deep Listening Band coined the term “Deep Listening” and recorded the legendary, self-titled album, released by New Albion in 1989 and still sought after by music collectors.

 

Deep Listening Band and guest musicians celebrated the 25th anniversary of the seminal recording with a weeklong residency culminating in a public concert at the Dunrobin Sonic Gym near Ottawa, Canada. On this occasion the band employed the unique 'Cistern Simulation' creatively: during the Canadian premiere the musicians could be heard as if they were inside the cistern or sonically modified versions of the cistern as 'performed' by the audio engineer Jeff Pratt through blending the 'Cistern Simulation' with the extraordinary room acoustics of the auditorium at the Dunrobin Sonic Gym. Dunrobin Sonic Gems was recorded and engineered by Johannes Welsch, Dave Samson and Jonas Braasch, and mastered by João Carvalho.

 

Deep Listening Band hopes that the reactions to "Johina" and Dunrobin Sonic Gems will be similarly favorable as were the ones to the world premiere of the 'Cistern Simulation' in New York in 2012. Back then the New York City Village Voice review of the event stated: "Oliveros and band member Stuart Dempster concluded in a deep, shimmering, overtone-rich chord you hoped would go on forever." And The New York Times asserted that "three peak performances used modern technology to evoke the ineffable." The album is available through www.PaulineOliveros.us and the Dunrobin Sonic Gym in Canada.
