SHIN053 Alan Courtis & Cyrus Pireh COILS ON MALBEC What possibilities does wine offer as a sound source for making music? As a possible response to this interrogation, the North American record label Shinkyo has recently released on vinyl LP a unique sonic project that explores the electromagnetic properties of wine. Coils on Malbec is the product of a collaboration between Argentine composer Alan Courtis and usa composer Cyrus Pireh. The album was entirely produced with coils - originating in Minneapolis, usa - that capture the electromagnetic variation of the Malbec wine, translating it into sound. The recording session took place in Buenos Aires in October 2013 which explains the use of the emblematic Malbec varietal of Argentina as a source of sonic investigation. The recorded material was edited in the studio by both composers between 2014 and 2015, and then mastered. The album contains 2 long tracks: "Coils on Malbec" and "Malbec on Coils" on sides A and B respectively. The LP was pressed in the Czech Republic on translucent wine-colored purple vinyl.
