In a small room | Ann Rosén

Schhh production presents a new album by

Ann Rosén
In a Small Room

SE3JQ20001

Den 25:e november 2020 släpps noise-konstnären Ann Roséns soloalbum In a Small Room (SE3JQ20001) på Schhh Records. In a small room innehåller åtta spår, som är upptagningar från Roséns live-streamade Wednesday Drawings – unika blyertsverk som ritas fram inför publik och är kopplade till liveelektronik, där blyertspennan är instrumentet som styr hela ljudbilden och Rosén samtidigt är musiker, dirigent, mixare och kompositör.

Verken har sänts live via Youtube under sommaren och hösten 2020 och ges nu ut i inspelat format. Soundet är rytmiskt, lekfullt och utmanande.

Roséns konstnärskap kretsar kring utforskandet av mellanmänsklig kommunikation, hur vi kan förstå oss själva i relation till omvärlden och de barriärer som kan uppstå mellan oss och andra. In a small room är präglat av de barriärer som det senaste året inneburit, när musiker inte har kunnat möta sin publik live, och innehåller spår som Time Lag Sadness och Disconnected. Ljuden som Ann Rosén processar, vänder ut och in, klämmer ihop, sträcker ut, plockar isär och sätter ihop härstammar från inspelningar av den fantastiska hornspelaren Sören Hermansson.

Bredvid | Rosén & Stockholm Saxophone Quartet

Schhh… släpper ett nytt album 22:e september 2016
Schhh production presenterar:

Ann Rosén & Stockholm Saxophone Quartet
Bredvid

SE3JQ16001

Bredvid-kompositionerna handlar om parallella processer som inte är ihopkopplade men ändå kan påverka varandra! Det är som små barn som leker bredvid varandra snarare än med varandra. De har mycket gemensamt och kan även låna saker från varandra men de är fortfarande i sina egna världar!

Solostycken BREDVID M, BREDVID J, BREDVID A och kvartett-versionen BREDVID Q är alla avkommor av den ursprungliga BREDVID-kompositionen, ett “dubbelsolo” för Jörgen Pettersson och Matias Karlsen Björnstad som beställdes av RANK och Nya Perspektiv och uruppfördes vid Kompfest 2015, Malmö.

BREDVID-musiken har vuxit fram ur verket Elkonflikt (saxofoner och elektronik) för vilket Ann Rosén byggde den första versionen av Fryslåde-synten. KRING, det sista stycket på albumet är Ann Roséns första komposition för Stockholms Saxofonkvartett.

All musik på albumet framförs av medlemmar ur Stockholms Saxofonkvartett med undantag för BREDVID A som Ann Rosén framför med sitt Knämudd-instrument.

Improvisation plays a large role in their work and they often incorperate both planned as well as spontaneous improvisations into their interpretations.
Ensemble Makadam consists of Kristina Lindgård (cello), Anna Lindal (violin), Sara Sjödahl (piano) and Elsbeth Bergh (Viola).

Ann Rosen is a sound artist, composer and performer who works experimentally and transdisciplinary. Ann’s list of works includes several electroacoustic works as well as compositions for choir and instrument ensembles including Stockholm Saxophone Quartet , the guitar ensemble KROCK and ensemble Macadam .

Att sluta en cirkel | Mattias Josefsson

MATHIAS JOSEFSON — ATT SLUTA EN CIRKEL

SE3JQ14006
Att sluta en cirkel (Too complete a circlel). After a few years of absence Mathias Josefson returns to the experimental drone genre with a release on Shhh records. During the work on this album. Mathias was not only inspired by the film San Soleil by Chris Marker, but he cut and mixed the music directly to some of the film sequences. The film sequences the duration and rhythm controlled the music. Mathias also took inspiration from Roland Barthes’ text, The Death Of The Author. Can Barthes text be applied on the composer? In the piece Författarens död (The author’s death), he has made use of chance and indeterminacy in a attempt to decouple himself from composer role. The album invites the listener to step in and be embraced of a sound world where the listener have the opportunity to choose how and at what level the work is experienced. The circle is completed; is it the end or the beginning of something new?

Elsy and the Needle
Syntjuntan

SE3JQ14002

Music tangled with lace and long stitches, embroidered with electronic sounds, square waves and curled noise.
Elsy and the needle is a duo consisting of Ann Rosén and Lise-Lotte Norelius stemming from Syntjuntan! Even though Syntjuntan is very active it’s focus has shifted from performances towards workshops where they teach people to, literally, stitch together their own synthesiser using needle and conductive thread.
Under the name Elsy and the Needle Ann and Lise-Lotte can focus on their music and continue to develop their very unique music with “no holds barred”

Kept in the dark

AS GOOD AS IT GETS is a duo consisting of the live electronic music veterans Lars Bröndum and Sten-Olof Hellström. They are explorers and experimentalists on a quest to find their musical Theory Of Everything (TOE) where they are trying to unite the complex forces of composed music with the dark forces of improvised music. AS GOOD AS IT GETS continue it’s journey through unheard sonic continents and explore sound territories that music conventions have Kept In The Dark!

HELLSTRÖM AND BOWERS – SINE CERA

SE3JQ13001

Live recording of Sten-Olof Hellström and John Bowers performing at the GEM-Days 2009 in Huddersfield.

Sten-Olof Hellström and J. M. Bowers have performed together since 1997 but they are better known for their work as individual composers and performers as well as with others in constellations such as Tonesucker (Bowers) and As Good As It Gets (Hellström). As a duo, a magical energy emerges. Impossible sounds, uncontrollable currents and sinister undertones are woven into a twisting soundweave that is counterpointed by near subsonic glitches and subliminal chaos.

ANN ROSÉN – THIMBLE NOISE

SE3JQ12004 / FER 1097

The plan was to compose ZO-2 variations for the open second movement in Zonula Occludens a project were i explore different listening situations.
In the process they grew into pieces in their own right and could preferably be listened to in headphones.

The connection that holds the different pieces together is the noise.
All tracks are composed, recorded, generated, processed and mixed at Schhh studio, VICC and EMS by Ann Rosén.
Mastering: Sten-Olof Hellström.
