Felicity Mangan Field recordings

A project of four artists exploring the mimesis and play back of animal sounds through voice, instrument, computer music and field recordings. AnimalNacht explores the unknown area of human, animalistic and computer sounds in various spatial and acoustic situations. Trumpet & conch, voice  & birdcalls, computer  and field recordings create various sound hybrids.

Fake Field Recordings (2010-11)

A cut-up of recordings of animals, blurred with computer generated birds and frogs, crickets. The computer looses its technologicalism and the animals get denaturalised.

The secretaries(2011- 2013)

WJM, JD Zazie and Felicity Mangan – found sounds, electronics.

A band formed in 2011 in Berlin. The Secretaries bring together three strong personalities to explore new musical directions and forms. Works are composed and performed through the reproduction of recorded material whose manipulation acquires a new meaning in a game of tensions and balances, interweaving and setting of concrete sounds, environmental field recordings, rhythms, impulses, noises, and mistakes.
