Visites Possibles and Sightings: Music for the videos of Sabrina Ratté
“The music on this collection was written specifically to accompany
video pieces by Sabrina Ratté.
‘Visites Possibles’ was created for the online collective Computers Club, while the “Sightings” series was created for the video label
Undervolt & Co.
For this series of videos we were interested in exploring a more direct
relationship between sound and image, where most of the sounds
contained in the pieces act as a sort of translation of the events
happening within the video frame, creating an audio environment for
these impossible spaces. The sound events enhance the otherness
of the impossible architectures, instead of merely clothing the visuals
in a superfluous musicality. The audio was edited in relation to the
video, therefore creating unusual sonic structures that are revealed
when played back without the video part.
The audio for these pieces was generated using analog and modular
synthesizers, computer and sampling devices.”

“This album collects some of my earliest works for solo acoustic guitar written between 2005 and 2007. In the beginning of 2014, I was given a wonderful opportunity to do a residency at Harrison House Music & Arts in Joshua Tree. Leading up to my stay there, I decided to go back and revisit these songs so that I could record them in that beautiful room you see in the cover photo. I wrote a few new pieces in the same spirit during the visit that found their way onto the album as well.
The album title is inspired by Erik Satie’s concept of “musique d’ameublement” (furnishing music), which is background music originally intended to be played by live performers. I love the idea that music/sound can be engaged on many different levels, and in many different contexts. My hope is that these tunes can similarly slide between spaces and be listened to in multiple settings over time. A special thanks goes to the gracious Eva Soltes for generously hosting me at the Harrison House. It was an incredible setting to create music. I also want to thank those in my life that have encouraged me to keep this particular music alive. Hope you enjoy and thanks for listening!”
