Resonance Vibration Frequencies
by Michael Baird, recorded 2022-23
Science tells us: "All things in our universe are constantly in motion, vibrating. Even objects that appear to be stationary are in fact vibrating, oscillating, resonating, at various frequencies. Resonance is a type of motion, characterised by oscillation between two states. An interesting phenomenon occurs when different vibrating things come into proximity with one another: they will often start, after a little time, to vibrate together at the same frequency. They 'sync-up', sometimes in ways that can seem mysterious. All things resonate at certain frequencies. It’s all about vibrations."
Performed with touché and intuition, recorded using a special microphone technique capturing every last vibration from metal instruments and objects, Michael Baird plays a family of sounds from a champagne cooler to a tiny bell from India. So yes, this is metal music! Yes it is 'contemporary percussion', yes it is 'avantgarde', yes it is 'experimental', yes it is 'world music', yes it is 'ambient', yes it is 'new age'! Let yours ears decide what is going on.....It certainly is not fast music, and when you slow down your pace of life, introspection tends to increase – generally a good thing. The sound is pure, Tibet is never far away here, and African ‘thumb-pianos’ are heard in a brand new setting. This is meditative music, but the 9 tracks also form a suite that tells a story. Let yourself become enveloped…..
