Crete Soundies presents three new pieces -- Magnesia (2006), Anemos (2007) and East Crete (2008-2009). These works were born from two years of Levka Ori sound research, and an additional year in east Crete in collaboration with fellow sound artist Francoise Vanhecke. Moniek Darge was born in Bruges, 1952 and studied music theory and violin at the Music Conservatory of Bruges, painting at the Ghent Royal Academy of Fine Arts; Art History, Philosophy and Anthropology at the University of Ghent, Belgium. She is active as composer, violinist, performer and audio artist and has built light and soundsculptures, installations, musical instruments and for many years has been constructing a series of alternative music boxes, with which she also performs. Darge has specialised in both soundscapes and live-art performances in which visual and musical aspects are combined and in interactional improvisation on violin. Since 1970 she has performed around the world and has been active on stage, first with the Logos Ensemble, then with Logos Duo (together with Godfired-Willem Raes), and more recently with the M&M robot ensemble. She also founded Logos Women, a small group specialised in intermedia improvisations performing their own compositions for various instruments, voices and music boxes. Crete Soundies comes housed in 6-panel digipak, in an edition of 500, and is released with the support of the Flemish Government." - KYE.

Title: Soundies (Selected Work 1980-2001)
Format: CD
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Moniek Darge has been active as a composer, violinist, performer and audio artist since the early 70s. She is most widely recognized as one half of the pioneering new music group Logos Duo alongside her partner Godfried-Willem Raes. The Logos Duo, which operates under the umbrella of the Logos Foundation, have been celebrated both at home in their native Gent, Belgium and on the international stage. They have performed their work in countries as diverse as Brazil, New Zealand, Japan and the US. However, Monieks solo work has been harder to locate, the last published collection being Sounds of Sacred Places (Igloo Records, 1987). Soundies is the first in a series of releases from Kye that aims to bring Monieks solo material before a wider audience. Soundies contains the following work: Sand (1980) -for two percussionists with tape (electronics) and one participant from the audience / Stormfugle (1981) -for two performers, voice, tape (electronics and voice), slides, film, clarinet and violin / Fairy Tale (1983) -for vocals, violin and tape (koala sounds and dog-growling) / Harpje (1995) -for harp samples and performance / Caete (1997) -for soundscapes, live musical objects and duo / Verbondenheid (1999) -for voices, Turkish turtle and live musicians / Turning Wheel (2001) -for voice, live violin and soundscape. Comes in an attractive 4-panel digipak graced with original art by Moniek." -- KYE.

Title: Sounds Of Sacred Places
Format: CD
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"New 2011 edition of this cornerstone sound art collection, originally published in 1987 on LP by Igloo. "In most ethnic cultures, sacred places serve an important social function. The qualities, typical of these places, explain to western people the magic magnetism of these "holy grounds". During our international Logos Duo concert tours we have had the opportunity to visit quite a few of these places. Uluru, the "Shadowgiving Mountain" of the Aborigines, better known under its western name of Ayers Rock (Australia), impressed us more than any other. The presence of water and an enormous monolith in the midst of the vast desert plain is given as an explanation for its magical appeal. But to the Aborigines, each little place of the rock contains tracks of their ancestors, the "Dreamtime People", who live in this mountain and speak to them in the sounds of the winds howling through the crevasses and rockholes. Uluru is also the dwelling-place of the "World Serpent", the most powerful totem shared by the surrounding tribes. Sounds of Sacred Places attempts to transform the listener into a living witness of the sounds of similar places, not far away in any specific ethnic culture, but in Flanders". (Moniek Darge, 1987). Sounds of Sacred Places arrives in a high gloss 4-panel digipak with accompanying 16 page booklet of photos and notes. Remastered from the original tapes by Moniek Darge at the Logos Foundation, Gent. Edition of 500." - KYE.
