Wendy Atkinson

Pink Noise CD


What is Pink Noise? It is the abstract and ambient sounds of The Dockyard or The Chamber, it is the rhythmic loops of Tangent Night and Getting Caught, it is the poppy instrumentals Life in Canada and Tyranny of Housework. Pink Noise, Wendy Atkinson's second solo bass-only album, continues her exploration of the low-end world of electric, acoustic and double basses. Just like her first album, she wrote and mixed this one on an analog 4-track. Wendy's debut album, Trim, charted on North American college radio and was featured nationally in Canada on CBC radio's Brave New Waves. Wendy has performed at Ladyfest (Ottawa); the experimental Ambient PiNG series (Toronto); the Western Front's Raw and Cooked series (Vancouver) and the Access Artist Run Centre's Celebration of John Cage. She was twice selected for Art in the Air, an international audio art festival. Her music was included in Sonic Landscapes, a sound art exhibit held in Michigan, along with Mecca Normal and Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth. Wendy has recorded with poet/activist Bud Osborn and David Lester on a spoken word/music CD that was made into a video that has been screened at video poem festivals around the world and acquired by CBC television. Wendy is currently collaborating on a CD with David Lester, guitarist for Mecca Normal. She plans to tour this spring and summer. She lives in Vancouver, Canada.
