Here Asha Sheshadri and Christian Mirande record together as Open Corner. Vocal accounts of mundane suburbia and human despondency by Asha, under a woven forest of pops and cracks and creaks courtesy of Christian.

In a way the texts remind me of Robert Ashley’s “Au Pair” pieces (from the 2nd Atalanta CD), overrun by the swamp of a broken dishwasher and a leaking wine fridge.

Emotionally and sonically claustrophobic. A unique take on voice and sound: in-between an audiobook and a sound-map. Exhausted and hungover, the frequencies and intense proximity really fit the digital CD format. - Sean McCann
