Filaments & Voids

by Kenneth Kirschner

Giles a fascinating and challenging collection, with a very particular austerity and poise. i especially like the final epic track, as it seems to combine a whole lot of 'modern classical' themes, such as sample feedback/degradation, field recording/found sound to create atmosphere, and electroacoustic treatments that make it impossible to tell what's 'real' and what's synthesized. there's iciness and emptiness, but despite everything it seems to come from a very human source. highly recommended

John Cratchley Some processes Kenneth Kirschner might use: chance operation,cutting-edge digital experimentation,random/strict organization of form,repetition and the elastic qualities of time...
Do I listen to process or result? both and neither...
Kirschner's modus operandi may well be best described as the exploration of new possibilities and unrelenting change.
I don't try to define or evaluate;just sharpen my senses to listen without prejudice...

A subdued chord, and a subsequent quiet. A hovering drone, followed by a compelling absence of sound. True to its title, Filaments & Voids is comprised predominantly by one or the other: by carefully constructed audio of lingering delicacy or by singular silences of ambiguous depth. Over the course of two discs and nearly two and a half hours of music, composer Kenneth Kirschner focuses the listener’s attention on the silence inherent in his sounds, and the sounds implicit in silence. Like the night sky evoked by the album’s title, the music heard on Filaments & Voids is a broad and dark space inhabited by dispersed and luminous materials.

Filaments & Voids is a 2-CD collection of Kenneth Kirschner’s music featuring liner notes by’s Marc Weidenbaum and photography by Taylor Deupree.
