Noema is a collection of 37 short pieces composed from source material I recorded in and around Kyoto during a three-month stay there with my family in 2012.

The over-arching theme of the record is the idea of exploring social space through everyday sound--and especially in the case of Kyoto, not just focusing on what we've come to know the city for (temples, shrines, etc.--though some of these are in there as well).

The pieces also deal with the idea of memory, much as the famous "episode of the madeline" in Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, in which the taste of the madeline dipped in tea triggers a flood of involuntary memories. For me, many of the sounds used in these pieces work the same way.

The word noema is often used in philosophical discourse to describe the object of thought--and in the case of this record, the sounds themselves and the structures they contribute to in the production of social space.

Jason Kahn / Phil Julian

Jason Kahn - Analogue modular synthesiser, mixing board, radio
Phil Julian - Analogue modular synthesiser, computer

Recorded at Goldsmiths University of London by John Macedo, 14th February 2012

“Valentines” documents the first duo meeting between Kahn and Julian, recorded during Kahn's tour of the UK in 2012.

The initial idea was to meet and hopefully generate audio material that could then be used later as the basis for a composition. It seemed apparent that the three improvised pieces that makes up “Valentines” stood up well on their own merits without the need for further embellishment.

The session was recorded by John Macedo, who also conducted an interview with the pair about their approaches to recording and performing. A link to this is included on a card insert with the release.

An interview with Jason Kahn and Phil Julian about some of their thoughts behind "Valentines" was made by John Macedo and can be read here:

Jason Kahn / Tim Olive
"Two Sunrise"

Jason Kahn: electronics
Tim Olive: pickups, electronics

Recorded in Kyoto, Osaka 2012

Recorded in the autumn of 2012 in Japan, “Two Sunrise” is a document of the first meetings of Jason Kahn and Tim Olive. Tracks One to Three were recorded in a studio session in Kyoto on September 27; Track Four was recorded at a live performance in Osaka on October 6. These four untitled pieces are eventful and intricately structured with a distinct developmental momentum. Chosen from several hours of recordings, minimally edited and sequenced for maximum impact, “Two Sunrise” highlights both the melding and divergence of Kahn’s analog electronics and Olive’s one-string magnetic pickup device, shaping an active, thoughtful and somehow organic real-time electronic music. Mixed and mastered by Jason Kahn.
