JASON KAHN - FOR VOICE

(confront collectors series ccs 48)

 

Jason Kahn // voice
 
1. Kid Ailack // 24:28 
2. SoundOut // 23:32

 

Two solo concert improvisations for unamplified voice recorded in Canberra, Australia at the SoundOut Festival in 2015 and in Tokyo, Japan at the Kid Ailack Art Hall in 2014.
 
Employing extended vocal techniques, I use the voice to activate the concert hall, probing both room acoustics and the social space between myself and the audience.
 
I've been working with voice for several years now. “For Voice” is the first release to document this work in a live context. These recordings are unedited. (Jason Kahn)
 
Track 1 recorded by Jason Kahn May 9, 2014 at the Kid Ailack Art Hall, Tokyo, Japan. Track 2 recorded by Kimmo Vennonen January 31, 2015 at the SoundOut Festival, Canberra, Australia.
 
Many thanks to Seiji Hayakawa and Richard Johnson for making these concerts possible.
