In December of 2010, Belgian label Sub Rosa introduced a new Framework series (an extension of Concrete Electronics Noise) with a release by Tresor Records superstar, Cristian Vogel. Further releases in the series followed with appearances by Ulrich Krieger, Francisco Lopez, and Rogelio Sosa. The 11th entry in the series comes from Bérangère Maximin, a French electroacoustic composer fusing laptop, voice, and guitar with various objects. No One Is An Island is only her second full length release, but it already attracted attention of appearances by Christian Fennesz, Richard Pinhas, Frédéric Oberland, and Rhys Chatham. “I eagerly seized the opportunity to work with these amazing four men,” says Maximim, “Their wits and energies were just what I needed: a sonic journey that simultaneously develops intuition and teaches understanding, this among many other subtle effects.” The sounds on this experimental release jitter, twist, and swirl in a hazy atmosphere of chirping electronics, processed guitars and mysterious field recordings. Maximin’s voice appears on the third track, “Knitting In The Air”, transposed a few octaves lower, yet still retaining its eclectic European accent. The six pieces on No One Is An Island are a bit challenging, bubbling through circuitry of oscillating waves, distorted riffs, and clipping tremolos. At times the music approaches noise territory, filtered through analog effects and musique concrète. This is expected – Maximin studied with one of the pioneers of the ‘morphological’ approach to sonic writing, Denis Dufour.
