Release: Alex Charles – Violin, Bow and Case

Extended technique? Amplified silence? Violin, Bow, and Case is an exercise in sculptural minimalism, using a simple contact mic to capture sounds from the titular items that are as far from the “proper” use as possible.

Alex Charles is a Scottish musician living in Birmingham, UK. His music explores layering small audio events into three dimensional webs of circling loops, generating their own internal rhythm and shapes.
