Pauline Oliveros 1932-2016

Remembering Pauline Oliveros. We were fortunate and honoured to be in contact with her when we prepared Music for Tectonics, which included, with her kind permission, recordings we made of her work at the Tectonics festival in Reykjavik in 2013. Thank you for the music and for the listening.

Music for Tectonics in Mengi

We’re grateful to Elísabet Indra and Mengi for organising a small celebration of Music for Tectonics. It was a pleasant evening of music, drinks and Q and A on the CD and its background, Reptilicus’ history and up coming projects with a few chips from our sonic workshop scattered around. Again thanks to Mengi and all who showed up.

New CD by Reptilicus: Music for Tectonics

reptilicus ad_musicworks 9_2015

New release on EMF, Electronic Music Foundation. Graphic design by award winning Michael Robert Wrycraft – with special thanks to William Blakeney, Joel Chadabe and Praveer Baijal. The CD is the result of Reptilicus’ participation in the Tectonics festival in Reykjavik, organised by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and curated by conductor Ilan Volkov. Reptilicus did various recordings of performances, rehearsals and the environment at the festival which became the basis of their own performance. In the wake of Tectonics, Reptilicus put new pieces together, manipulating and adding to the raw material collected. Among the material used (with permisson) are recordings of the works of Christian Wolff and Pauline Oliveros.

Mail order: 12 Tónar and Ant-Zen.

In Reykjavík, the CD is available at the following stores: 12 Tónar on Skólavörðustígur; Bóksala Stúdenta on Háskólatorg; Lucky Records on Rauðarárstígur; Smekkleysa on Laugavegur; and Mengi on Óðinsgata.
