Small Life Form is a musical project of Brian John Mitchell (Remora, Vlor, etc) that started in 1998 based around recording 30 seconds of sound (the limitation of Sound Recorder in Windows 3.11) & stretching & adding echo & layering the results. Over the next five years Mitchell’s interest in 1960s classical music (most notably Gyorgy Ligeti) & electroacoustic music (especially label mates Kobi & Clang Quartet) led to the recording of the debut album One (2003) with pieces constructed from horns, melodica, cymbal, voice, & radio astronomy.
In 2007 at the urging of Shaun Sandor (Promute) & CJ Boyd, Small Life Form became a live project initially built around voice, horns, & feedback eventually refining to the current main instrumentation of voice, feedback, copper pipe, triangles, aircraft lock, optical theremin, melodica, & super simple synthesizer. Early versions of the live show can be heard on 2008’s Alive & followed up by the studio recordings of Lost Kisses Soundtrack (2009) & Satsop (source sounds recorded in 2008 in a nuclear cooling tower & released in 2012).
Voice in the Sky takes the Small Life Form live show & allows it to breathe & develop. It starts with reverbed out layers of ghostly voices building into walls of sound & decaying noise. A big slab of drone taking you into Small Life Form’s world for 45 minutes.
A 45 minute electro-acoustic drone piece from Small Life Form built from voice, melodica, copper pipe, optical theremin, super simple synthesizer, feedback, & aircraft lock. Recommended if you like [ Brian Eno ] ~ [ Sun O)) ] ~ [ Andrew Chalk ] and related artists.
