Regeneration 10:39


MAL 012; "Regeneration" by Martin Herterich

In response to “Spiritual Philosopher’s Stone” by August Nordenskiöld, Martin Herterich (Sand Circles, Continuity) creates a pulsating torrent of fragmented sounds. While advocating a spiritual as well as social reformation, Nordenskiöld – court alchemist of Swedish monarch Gustav III – proclaims the fabled Philosopher’s Stone to be the sole remedy for the degenerated moral state of Mankind. Throughout “Regeneration”, Herterich’s heavily processed tape loops gain shape and beauty with each iteration as they slowly rise above the massive clamour of field recordings from the Pachinko game parlours of Tokyo.

“Regeneration”; composed, performed and recorded by Martin Herterich.

“Spiritual Philosopher’s Stone” (1789) by August Nordenskiöld. Sound collage by Hans Richter and reading by Gavin Maycroft.
