“Reality is precise; memory isn’t.” Jorge Luis Borges, In Praise of Darkness
Based in Spain, composer and visualist Pierce Warnecke has developed an elegant auditory hallucination with his debut edition Memory Fragments.
Known widely for his collaboratarial works, this edition represents Warnecke’s first solo outing. Recorded over the better part of three years, Memory Fragments ties together is interests in electro-acoustic sound, field recordings and harmonic incongruities.
“A memory is a recording of senses with the mind as the medium,” Warnecke explains, “When a memory is recalled it is played back in the mind's eye, but the experience is never as exact as the original moment. This makes memory a volatile storage medium, subject to transience."

Seemingly formless but with a sense of being carefully constructed, "Meith" is a striking and lovely piece of electroacoustic music. The sound design here is fairly minimalist and reductive, but also evocative and almost dreamlike. Excellent work, both as a display of sonic mastery and as an immersive journey for the listener.
