Sound spreads away from its source: flowing and passing it leaves traces, some of which can be found in the ideas it seeded.
AR welcomes and promotes since 2018 explorations into sound that move from the search for these traces.
Each project on this page has come to its conclusive form – always different.
The production dynamics tested by AR vary as well: co-production for The Chaos Awakening [AR R.00], an artisanal approach for Darkening Ligne Claire [AR R.01] and the concept coordination on the co-production Terminalia Amazonia [AR R.02].
Shapes shift too. Deciding to print music on vinyl or plastic involves a responsibility, and [AR R.01] was conceived as a product/manifesto: an edition with only one copy for sale. An art sale whose incomes financed the entire project, and therefore the free sharing of the digital edition.
This is the synthesis of a possible AR manifesto: help music being released, while favoring the natural decline of the market and its physical commodities, and the deligitimation of useless mediations.
