Störung

'The 5th Apple’ is the debut album of sound artist Alina Kalancea, produced at Störung Studios.

The album is both a deep spoken word within an impressive sound structure whilst also being a multilayered sonic composition complimented by profound introspections. The way string instruments, field recordings, voices and other sources have been intimately utilised to enhance the profundity and power of the spoken word is remarkable. The truths exposed, the fears revealed, the images created with text, all appear more incisive, more definitive, more compelling. On the other hand, the insight and understanding the texts profess provide meaning to the sound sequences. The hypnotic loops receding into the background, the deep and pulsating reverberations, the water dropping frequencies, the disturbing and unsettling string sounds become spaces where what has been conveyed or what it has awoken in ourselves can unfold, or recede into the unknown.

It is an impressive journey, along which sound artists Alex Gámez (Asférico), Julia Kent and Raven Bush have collaborated, producing astonishingly rich sonic environments and venturing into inner abysses, fears and repressed emotions on the way. If we listen close enough we will find an incredibly elaborate and meticulous sound composition with remarkable subtleties, layers and sonic nuances, if we plunge deep enough we may find the prowling fictions which stand in the way of life and could even discover some liberating truths.

Störung is a multidisciplinary platform of artists that develop audiovisual environments based on electronic and experimental minimalism using new technological and musical trends.
This project started in Barcelona in 2006 and as its name suggests –störung means interference– the aim of the works presented by this platform is to interfere with the music styles that are nowadays usually considered electronic music, offering an alternative and different sound experience.
To achieve this objective, the main pillar of the platform is experimentation and improvisation in the field of sound synthesis and image in real-time, creating in this way a unique audiovisual environment. Störung develops the following main activities: Störung Festival, Störung Label & Störung Radio.
