The latest Touch Editions download, from its wonderful touchradio.org.uk side project, is a live set recorded as the first in a series — Touch Invites — being held at Cafe Oto in London. The 81st in the download series, it includes performances by Jiyeon Kim, Maia Urstad, and Dawn Scarfe with “interventions” from Sandra Jasper. The works are arguably took abstract and diverse to be done justice in this compressed space, but suffice to say they range from elegant, minimalist sine waves to broken field recordings, to understated rhythmic convulsions (MP3). All the works play with noise as their primary source material, their primary object of investigation.
