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."

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 ?

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 ...

thierry massard :: sübe version

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.

Muhr :: poussière

:: j'aime la poussière que produit Muhr, comme j'aime ou avais très (trop) discrètement aimé "drames et précipices" l'an passé chez Zymogen. Etonnant comme parfois, dans une sorte de sursaut d'égoïsme, on tente de camoufler des impressions, un sentiment, de peur de devoir en rendre compte. Muhr est de ces artistes pour lesquels l'on réserve toujours une place (confortable) en son jardin secret. Entrez-donc tranquillement dans "an end to none but to all that is still", et laissez-vous engourdir par cette harmonie scintillante où le ton y est certes grave et apparemment introspectif mais, jamais avec désillusion. Cette quiétude générale perdure encore pour "Dead leaves" mais avec ce crissement soutenu en forme de matièralisation sonore et l'apparition d'une lointaine nostalgie, renforçant la quasi réalité de l'édifice. "quiet words and forgotten trees" amorce une solidification en un tempo-écho aux stridences bruitistes et un désir lyrique rapidement maitrisé. Pièce maitresse du dispositif, "les rêves sont des poussières du possible" se décline en particules fines, rhizomiques et suspendues, sculpture immatérielle en quête de réponses. "la gouache des temps" qui referme 'poussière' ne sera pas cette réponse attendue, car en joueur avisé, Muhr y dévoile une ultime espièglerie, une molécule de suspence qui vous fera très (trop) discrètement désirer une prochaine visite au jardin secret.

Zainetica :: future 740

comment :: a very interesting release is that "Future 740" of Zainetica - figure of an electronica,from now, a bit old stylish, Mark Streatfield seems to turn its glance to a new musical imagery under soft technopop influence, since it is unfortunately as the way we qualify the incidence of Neu! and Kraftwerk, and intelligently avoiding the traps from any synthetic digression of a certain idm scene.
The result ? Clearly, the best realization ever carried out by Zainetica.

Raw N^D :: toy ep

Pure abstracts forms dissolved in a sub-philharmonic orchestral sinking. ‘V tvoj mirok probralas\’ zima’ which opens this first release of Raw n^d is clearly indicating the way of dark impressionist meanders, without however, never rocking in the glaucous and cinematographic pathos of many alleged Indus artists - “Li56” with its illusory frankness, have some difficulties to mask a perfect arithmetic under fine old school influence (Throbbing Gristle for “Vantuuso Cherv`!!”)... and finally yes, the whole has is been useful with a talent which does not have anything illusory.

Difficile de décrire la tranquille addiction que suscite chaque réalisation de Martin Juhls avec son projet Krill.Minima.

Entre envie d’un possible mouvement des êtres et des choses, et irrépressible promesse d’un "blottissement" (du verbe pronominal 'se blottir') cotonneux et langoureux, le choix est âpre.
Seule certitude, le musicien de Dortmund fabrique d’indispensables philtres.

Anderson Hoffmann :: one-people projects

One-people projects … with a “s” explores the different (dark) sides of the talented Anderson Hoffman – this “s” corresponds to 3 main releases of the Brazilian musician collected by the very effective netlabel, clinical archives. First extracts are from "violated animal rights” two main and serious soundscapes for a noble cause. Two tracks are also extracted from a project called “keygen”, quite symptomatic of a large interest for the hammering and the mental gimlet (our favourites’). The ep is closing on 2 pieces representing the colder side of Anderson, a colder side presented as a mix influences of ebm and Indus, but as main “genre repulsive” I should probably say that the dance floor temptation is far to be the worst idea of this One-people.

various artists :: 10 jahre kreislauf

it was a long time that i wanted to experiment an editorialist workshop - a sort of live review as a dj set - this particular release deserves an editorialist experimentation - Then, what about a live construction of a review ? an unfinished building site of writing in progress for a special birthday more promised to a cure of perpetual youth than to nostalgia ? let's try it, and see the result - your live comments are, of course, naturally welcomed ...

Day one, it was last saturday, sept. 1st, wake up too early after an awful night. bad mood. My first reflexion goes to the fact that, as many concerned people of the scene, i'm waiting for this compilation announced by a few mails from Mogwai. As usual my first reflex is to go to phlow.de - Kreislauf, as a sort of dandy reflex, systematically puts a point of honor for being the first release announced each month on this particular site - phlow seems to have some update problems - bad mood.
But let's just talk music - let's just remember this initial surprise on first listening this "seite 1" intitled "Low Flying Fragments" - first smile of this french sunny morning, i like the idea of "seite", is it a reader reflex ? a promise of "seite 2" then seite 3 ? ... "low flying fragments" after a promising multiple "seiten", the atmosphere is going is weighed down - we will not wait for long - the extreme gravity of the awesome track of DeTrop is immediately collecting your attention and do not slacken the pressure - welcome to the birthday party ! ...

But from now, we are entering in a discreet area, a whispered appointment in a lonely place of evanescent and organic drones (Night-Time Epitome), a place of fractal stains images for Metafame, recently escaped from the brilliant “sooner ep” – from the time, the doors seem to open, ones after the others, it is probable that some of us will lose themselves there in this maze, however so coherent, and it is so much better for everyone ...

7 septembre – 11 :30 (don't want to write in my usual and suspect frenglish) C’est étonnant comme certains tracks ont parfois cette magie d’un quotidien illustré, l'untitled de Martin Maischein en fait partie, une parfaite osmose avec notre perception générale. Sans autre incidence, que d'être là, en une sorte de suspension latente, ils viennent se coller à votre vie, simplement s’implémenter sans complexe, devenir la bande son, toutefois provisoire, d’une réalité « enhanced » ...

Each time I meet the name of Alex Cortex somewhere, there is always a enigma for me, I cannot perceive the globality of this important artist - so much worse for me, his 'archive of 98' does not derogate from the mystery - I must invite him to::the questionnaire, we will know some more ...

Ah … ‘walaskjalf’, If I had to go back on a previous review words for the blog views&reviews, and opinion on the “skyland” of Max Marlow, today … I should probably said that these words (from January 2007) were far from being sufficiently “consistent” because I am not far from thinking that "skyland" is, to date, the best release of the Berliner - am I the only one to think it?

Well, about the “nummer acht” And in a recent e-mail, the same Mister Marlow was writing me “…also jungle wires sounds like the 'afterhour' of the world after mankind, like my track is telling about the deathmatch of it with all those horsewagons and red flags on top of dead bodies - right in before…” I must say I mostly agree on this so neo-expressionist vision, maybe we will talk more about someday or another...

13 september 17:34 - I like the idea of displacement in Niteffect, its "last mohawk" opens horizons for geographical and human delicacies - is "last mohawk" ... a (nomad) cake ?

8 novembre 17:51 - Sursaut quasi hivernal soudain ? à moins que ce ne soit l’amical rappel à l’ordre de l’homme à la casquette en début de semaine, nous voici à nouveau penché sur ces vastes entrelacs de sombres soundscapes tels cette sourde ellipse d’ouverture du lancinant « rch » de Messieurs Omas fgt et Patrice Valota , fascinant dédale secrets de (shock ?) corridors et échos aveugles, the « velvet stars » will not be to any help, He-lux have decided to better mislay you in order to make you numb with some rhythmic abstractions and uncertain voices exercice.
