FOURM | Method 8cm Special Editon
In true WHITE_LINE Christmas tradition, Fourm has released a very special, ultra limited edition (30 copies) recording of new sound works. Housed in an 8cm x7.5cm aluminium tin, with printed inserts, this release marks the coming of age of the FOURM project. Inspired by naturally occuring and man-made patterning systems, Method hinges on slowly mutating, semi-rhythmic iterations, that gradually swell and decay. Each loop incrementally changes and develops, but with FOURM’s trademark ultra-minimal approach, this is a fascinating and engaging journey, with prolonged silences filtered through enticing sounds.
Method is the first part of a one hour recording currently being produced, and marks the initiation of FOURM’s Nine Harmonic / Pattern Research project, a sub-division of last year’s Archisonics programme.
“Patterns are arrays of units that are similar, but not neccessarily identical, and that repeat, but not neccessarily regularly, or with a well-defined symmetry. Form is loosely, the characteristic shape of a class of objects, like the elements of a pattern – objects with the same form do not have to be identical or even similar in scale, they simply have to share certain features that can be recognised as typical”
From “The Self Made Tapestry- Patterns in Nature” By Phillip Ball
