John Kannenberg – Oculus

June 27, 2010

John Kannenberg - OculusDuring 2009, John Kannenberg recorded various visual art exhibits and then coupled these field recordings with electronic sounds to make Oculus (Wandering Ear). The combination of the two styles of music in Oculus presents a deep ambient drone that is periodically punctuated by the field recordings. At the release website, Kannenberg gives detailed explanations of what is happening in each track. Another item that intrigues me about this net release is how assumptions of sound were turned on themselves. For me, it wasn’t until I got back to my computer that I realized “Film Projection” (mp3) was not recording of a jack hammer.
