"Roars Bangs Booms"

from Roars Bangs Booms

Inspired by Luigi Russolo’s use of onomatopoeia in his 1913 Futurist manifesto Art Of Noises, Berlin based composer/sound artist Alessandra Eramo carries out intense explorations of past industrialised and deindustrialised sounds summoned up and articulated in the here and now by her naked voice. Backed by a theremin, tape machine and contact mics, she transforms her utterances into harmonious miniatures that reveal the rough beauty of her recovered industrial sounds. Roars Bangs Booms is released on Corvo.
