Abstract

Wave Folder Records notes: the artists involved were presented with a challenge to create new works by engaging with specially recorded sound material. Sounds of traditional instruments were integrated into modern digital workflows, electronic instruments and tools. The artists contrasted, morphed, mixed and collided the material via fragmented pieces of space and time in the form of audio variously sampled, electronically generated, and processed. This way the album serves as a timbral tool kit, showcasing diverse types of artistic interactions and experiments with the timbres of traditional instruments. The presented works are thus metaphorical digital artefacts of today, demonstrating different ways of reflecting upon culture. I-go-i-e acknowledges ancient instruments and artforms, embracing the limitations, idiosyncrasies, and rawness of the sound sources. The title of the album stems from an ancient Japanese word game, an idiom coming from the tea ceremony philosophy. Ichi-go-ichi-e (一期一会) means
treasuring the unique nature of a moment, each moment being different, distinctive, a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
