Audio Objekt :: vår nya värld



an (audio) object of fantasy and technological desire, this mix "cover-tribute" to the cyclists, added with an original track, featuring Ralf Hutter himself, makes easily forget some recent "8-Bit Operators hot cheap" hersatz and exacerbates also, the lack of news from Düsseldorf.

JMMS :: almost everything i want to say

Pseudo popstar temptation ? second hand clone, hybrid of a Marilyn Manson washing powder passed through a real kitchen mixer trash TV ?
It is always astonishing to see that those mystifications and egos have still, some assiduities from ... who ? after all.
Fortunately for JMMS, some "songs" leave this toy shop window.
Let us be serious, it is now a long time ago that this futile rock theatre thing is honestly dead of its unrrespectful death - except the make-up manufacturers, who still wants some insipid prolongations ?

Toxonic :: lost alias



i am not generally that much fan of those formal presentation texts coming from labels ... no way, i am also that much afficionado of welcomed self ... contradiction

"This is an army of dark, dry Drum'n'Bass -Beats,marching up your nerves, to celebrate their glory on the beaten battlefield of your brain.
Their weapons are down, but their armament is tight.
No need to fight, they’ll win anyway.
They came from deep down to take you over.
The surrender may exhaust you, but there will be no regrets."

tieguide / novembre 2007


mixtape / novembre 2007

"I am born in 1979 in a small town in Saxony, Germany.
After graduating as a Diplom-Media Manager (FH) I started a job in the marketing department of a solar cell manufacturer and moved to Leipzig, Saxony, Germany.
I'm still in the job and responsible for the corporate design, advertising, give aways and almost everything that shows the company's logo.

In 2005 I found with a friend of mine the netlabel one bit wonder net.music. For 1bit I made the whole graphic design like the webpage and all the release covers (except of one). Since 1995 I'm producing music, starting with trance stuff and later different styles. At the moment I'm in 3 music projects: Latex Distortion (with a friend of mine, something between electronica and techno, different releases on 1bit and other netlabels), Kultobjekt (a solo project, dub influenced and more minimal style) and at least The Noise Tales (a rock pop project with another friend of mine, released just 2 songs on 1bit, at the moment paused).
What else to say? I have a little daughter which just became 4 years old. :-)

So after my vita I will give you a short explanation to the artworks, although everybody can make his own interpretation.
The "tie guide" reflects my job: on the one hand, working with design and the Adobe CS. On the other hand the business part of my work like trade shows and marketing stuff at all. That's why the tie ;-) (by the way: I never have wear a tie)

The second artwork reflects my hobby: the netlabel, i guess there's no explanation necessary on this."

Resn :: disfunktion act 2

... where some will speak about TripHop or even I don't know which mark of corn flakes, others will hopefully say, delicate spleen (good night my friend) and autumnal languors in grey perspective landscapes ; I prefer these. Anyway, make us, these "autumnal languors" do not forget some precious times of this act2 ... in particular "chargeing sources". Once again, Homework gives a very singular music approach, evolutive and far from traditional genre dogmas and chapels - a highly recommended place.

DraCo :: terok nor

the press notes say something like "Somewhere in deep space lays mysterious space station Terok Nor (previously used as a mining center crewed by slaves)... Terok Nor is a recommended EP for Star Track fans, although newcomers and noobz are welcome, few more listens reveals some wonderful moods inspired by mysterious “space station”."
we now just hope that the second act will be something like the story of a man who's name would be Rick Deckard, the guy would have some adventures with androids and kind of replicants issued from a corporation, a maybe Tyrell corporation ... far from the joke, is it so unreasonable to not resist to such a release ?
a tasty sparkling aroma from outer space.

l'ermite :: mille morceaux

And so, the precious number 69 of clinical archives is this exhaustive «mille morceaux» by the non-less interesting but quite “teaching specialist” l’ermite who, in an evocative presentation text for archive.org, gives some lessons on the way to feel “the deep soul of music » ... cool, man, cool. That’s sometimes quite difficult to express how we feel closer to a release and I must say that “mille morceaux” is full of those precious little immaterial gem drops (diplodocus – premier mars...) and also feel so languid in front of the dull speech of the priest - Blah, blah, blah ...

not less than 28 years (sept. 1979) after a first and very limited edition on audio-cassette, Metropublik (and recently Kreislauf for a track on the "10 jahre kreislauf") have decided to re-release this 6 tracks industrial project called :: SüBE Version (title inspired by an info read in a swedish newspaper about a local hotels chain and, of course, the word game).

this re-release will be soon followed by a re-interpretated (subverted) version from artists of these both netlabels.

Pas moins de 28 années (sept. 1979) après une première édition limitée sur cassette audio, le label berlinois, Metropublik (et récemment Kreislauf pour un track sur sa compilation anniversaire "10 jahre kreislauf") ont decidé de réaliser à nouveau, ce projet industriel intitulé :: SüBE Version (titre inspiré de la lecture d'un article de journal suèdois à propos d'une chaine d'hotels locaux et, évidemment du jeu de mots)

Kenji Siratori :: dead device



Officially, Dead device is an ep, summarized in 2 parts ::
part1 – 13 minutes and 25 seconds, then part2 - 8 minutes and 55 seconds ... Here (officially) how we could made the autopsy of this apparent seppuku (see illustration) produced by our preferred cyber-Siratori. The affair is not obviously so simple, so much these 2 tracks, announced by Clinical Archives as “experimental and noise” are so distant of this game of appearance, an "effet de genre" probably. Kenji Siratori holds up an image rather stereotyped (ô mom a cyberpunk !) and finally produces a particularly delicate and harmonious musical writing, a wonder of softness for which can raise the surface and the game of appearances …

MarceXL :: artefacto



Somewhere in Hamburg is an organisation where we sometimes cross the members of a very private club. All made up amateurs of a house particularly progressive. You have to go deeper in the entrails of this place to meet one of the main craftsman of the genre. Far beyond the apparently simple “artefacto”, MarceXL explores and opens some new perspectives. Try to do the experience on your own and, if possible, far from an hypothetic dancefloor scheme – Then, reassure you, you are not obliged to thank MarceXL and kreislauf, though...

Takeshi Nakamura :: strange animals

great misses and lost times, i just have recently (this morning) discovered this recent work of Takeshi Nakamura, through the virb page of the musician - apologies, and thank you to the label for the info. "Strange Animals" is a style exercice a bit far from Nakamura traditional schemes and usual ways. Deep in abstract figures, the musician gives, once again, the sentiment of a methodic and regular exploration in sound and harmonic structures. The result might be, of course, sometimes diverting, but impresses of large aspirations (presentiment) - we knew Takeshi Nakamura an important musician practising the cut-up art at his best, he is also a human being and, let's admit it, a quite strange animal.

Your favourite painters and composers ::
Mark Rothko, his landscapes are so dynamic and real and at the same time there's an impenetrable distance to them.
Musically, there's too much, but i always feel touched and bothered and dreamy when listening to godspeed you ! black emperor, world's end girlfriend, stars of the lid and explosions in the sky

Your favourite heroes in real life ::
on a professional standpoint, Todd McFarlane started years ago to draw a character and now those simple drawings became a huge multi media empire.
Somehow it tells me that i can do whatever i want if i have enough drive.
And in a place where there are no heroes ( quebec, Canada ), we all look towards our hockey team, the montreal Canadiens. The sport has a much more socio-political meaning here than anything in the past 100 years.

Your favourite heroines in real life ::
Whoever taught us that women are more than our equals.

What character(s) in history do you most dislike ::
George Washington, the entire Bourbon family across time, the christian church and their popes, alexander the great.
