Robert-Johnson-Resident-DJ Anna Hjalmarsson hat einen Sample-Pack zusammengestellt, den sie im Robert Johnson während des Pandemie-Stillstands aufgenommen hat. „Für einen neuen Sample-Pack mit dem Titel Echoes From The Club hat Anna Hjalmarsson 63 Drum-Samples, 33 Field-Recordings und 31 Loops aufgenommen.“ Schöne Idee auf Metaebene. Zum Download gibt es den Pack bei Bandcamp.
With ‚Echoes from the Club‘, Anna Hjalmarsson explores the sonics of the resting club space. The otherwise vibrant and noisy places where people gather to let off steam for a few hours now lie idle during the pandemic.
But what does a club sound like when there is no music, no background noise, no loud conversations? Anna Hjalmarsson has collected various sounds that capture the soundscape of an empty club. Compiled in a sample pack, the release comprises three types of sounds: field recordings that echo the space as an acoustic environment, tracing its walls, hangers, rails, or bar utensils; drum samples played through the club’s sound system and recorded on-site; and processed sound loops based on the recordings.
‚Echoes from the Club‘ is a homage to the club as a collective space for music and shared experience. The project tracks down the inverted intensity of its idleness while temporarily emptied of its purpose.
The pack contains 63 one-shot drum samples, 33 field-recorded samples, and 31 loops. All sounds were recorded in stereo at the Robert Johnson Club in Offenbach.
