Polar Force / Philip Samartzis and Eugene Ughetti.
Polar Force is a new collaborative work from Australian field recordist Philip Samartzis and percussionist Eugene Ughetti. The work, which draws on Samartzis' time at Casey Station (one of Australia's primary research outposts on the Antarctic continent), is a powerful merging of environmental acoustics and extended approaches to percussion. Much of the sound heard on this edition are created through custom made percussion devices utilising ice, water and wind. When matched against the field recordings they create a blurry line between the natural and the synthetic, Samartzis and Ughetti prompting us to listen deeply into their emergent sound world.
