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."

Mirko lives in Leipzig.

Xedh :: armiarma

A new release and step from the man of Bilbao, full of surprises, sometimes not far from a "soft" white noise. An intimate mix of human presence through the micros and these relevant frequencies, physically abrupt.
Homophoni must be proud of it.

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.

well and ... do androids dream of electric sheep ?

Audiokonstrukte :: smart echoes for sensitive ears

Everything is in the title, following a first release for the 1bit wonder compilation "celebration #3", the "smart echoes for sensitive ears" of Audiokonstrukte sail between ambient textures and trip Hop schemes, and make a stopover with an excellently exception - this exception is entitled "neurospiderweb"

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)

cette réédition sera bientôt suivi par une version ré-interprétée (subvertie) par des artistes de ces 2 netlabels.

:: thirteensongs
:: 12rec.

Thank you gentlemen for this number 13, even if we must unfortunately speak about it with the past. For many reasons such as our own ratio of intimacy to the music we love, confronted with the perilous exercice of choice, thirteensongs was a very interesting experience. This mixtape label is already missing in the soundscape.

Le Mépris :: le mépris

impressive first release, the selftitled "le Mépris" is a source of subtlety and high skill ... i am certain that George Delerue would have more than a simple interest for the more than perfect miniatures of Reiko Matane, aka Rene Margraff.

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 …
