Ariana Van Gelder
23 May 2018
Aeons is a new work from Brooklyn based sound artist Ariana van Gelder. Presented in four movements spread over two cassette sides, Aeons is intended for a deep listening environment and exists in a space both cinematic and pedestrian. With a vision toward the multisensory, van Gelder describes it as ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œsound for bodiesÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â with the intent of creating music for the stillness of time.
Composed using only vocals run through various effects units, the recordings take on an otherworldly dynamic, developing gradually over time but held in an infinite vacuum of time.
This isnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t music. ItÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s the sound of the floor breathing, a vacant terrarium, a turning machine, the voice inside La Monte YoungÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s landlords head, or the overall vibe in DeckardÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s apartment.
