mathieu ruhlmann: as a leaf or a stone

the sound projector []
magazine, u.k., may 2010

...From the same label, "As a Leaf or a Stone", another example of the recondite work of Mathieu Ruhlmann, the Vancouver-based sound artist who uses some highly unlikely found objects (both natural and man-made) to produce his strange and distant meditations on the overlooked and unseen sides of life.

His work sits somewhere between field recording and performance (with some traces of sculpture thrown in, believe it or not) and in its quiet, unassuming way his work is always very involving.

If you look at the cover long enough (perhaps a canvas stained through being buried in a forest or singed in a campfire) you'll start to see faces and other recognisable shapes.
