Type of Media: Sound
Producer: Bánh Mì Verlag
Released: July 9th, 2018
“Con / eixeMent” is the first solo release by the project Cont Ext released by Bánh Mì Verlag in a limited amount of cassette tapes. Con / eixement is inspired by the phenomenon known as semantic satiation.
Cont Ext is a project which analyzes the rules in sound mixing techniques, where limitations historically have forced the engineer to create a coherent sonic panorama based in a sort of a sound illusion which tricks humans as listeners to imagine sounds located in an immediate imaginary space. This phenomenon has generated different mixing tendencies and trends which due to a fidelity with our perception of a real sonic panorama follow certain rules or canons based on the efficiency of representation.
