CLAP. AN ANATOMY OF APPLAUSE | various artists / 2xLP
"a compilation of original works by a group of musicians and composers brought together by Andrea Stillacci and Unsounds. The project goal is to highlight the radically different forms and meanings that the sound of applause can take according to its context. The principle was to work from original recordings of each artist’s choice, with sources ranging from the thunderous applause celebrating Maria Callas’ last public appearance to the crowds cheering at the fall of the Berlin Wall, and to transform them into musical compositions."
"Precious Element" by Terence Hannum features the applause at the death of Pier Paolo Pasolini's funeral.
FEATURING: Terence Hannum, Andy Moor, Robin Rimbaud (Scanner), Maurizio Bianchi, Moor Mother, Ji Youn Kang, Eraldo Bernocchi, Fani Konstantinidou, Yannis Kyriakides, Barbara Ellison and Massimo Pupillo
DISSOLVING THE BONDS / CD
• Terence Hannum - Dissolving the Bonds
• Glass Master CD
• 4 Panel Wallet Style Case
"Dissolving the Bonds" was written during a tumultuous time in my life full of a lot of changes. This album is a reflection upon the loss of an anchor and the realization that those who you've surrounded yourself with do not have your best interests in mind. In the end it is about separation and finding out who you are after that separation.

VIA NEGATIVA / LP (UTECH RECORDS)
"Terence Hannum, member of Locrian and a visual artist in his own right, certainly does take the negative path on Via Negativa. Utech Records calls ambient “the music of subtraction.” Hannum takes the ambient genre and makes his own eerie reduction of it. On “If You Only Knew What Darkness I Am Plunged Into,” the drums are reduced to throbbing bass pulses and the electric organ rings in to existence, caustically sustaining its one-note drone. The organ is then joined by other notes on its apparatus. As it envelops the already cold atmosphere Hannum has created, it freezes the other elements in to a form of suspended animation. It’s almost as if Hannum has turned the flowing river of time in to a pool of molasses. He plunges you in to his own darkness and you can’t help but succumb to the trance. Via Negativa would amply fit among the best horror movie soundtracks, if Hannum felt like loaning this out to one." - Sly Vinyl
