“Surfaces” is a modern electronic composition that was inspired by a series of Polaroids pictures taken by Favaron himself, whose basic idea is to create some patterns based on the repetition of small sound particles obtained with the fewest possible sources. The six parts of “Surfaces” were created recording the sounds of individual objects (… paper, scissors, stones, kitchen items, etc.), which were subsequently treated – mainly with two delay machines – and then assembled in the computer domain. A few digital sounds were added for good measure, but always trying to use the fewest number of sound sources in every part of the composition. The finished result is a series of particular sonic events that keep on chasing each other and give life to a microcosm populated with slowly evolving rhythmic loops that lull the listener into a sort of pleasant inner dance.
Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, “Surfaces” is a single-sided 12″ record released in a standard edition of 86 copies. A special “Art Edition” is also available: the 13 copies of this edition contain a 30x30cm print reproduction from the Polaroid series that inspired the audio work, and the corresponding Polaroid picture.
