George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC


Download George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC

That's how I came to think of the year old Phoenix asking daddy: why is this is all so dark? I couldn't think what to answer, but George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC has some time.

So for, a little bit older, this is all no problem, as I think Schaefer did another excellent CD, although perhaps not necessarily shedding new light or making a radical change in his career, but as dark, austere, atmosphere as it is, its great. For this one he made field recordings in The Mall, Broadmead, Bristol. We see a picture of him on the insert, holding up his microphone, near the escalator.

Shopping is not an activity I enjoy very much, nor shopping centers, perhaps for that reason that they always buzz with activity. People, ventilators, escalators, and above muzak. I am not sure if Whetham feels the same about malls, and calls his release 'Mall Muzak', with a sarcastic undercurrent, or perhaps even considers this to be alternative muzak for shopping malls, but somehow I think this is all not the case.

His piece lasting almost fifty minutes is a musical survey of activity going on in malls. Exactly the ventilators, escalators, the eternal buzz. He captured the whole lot and put this into a great musical piece of buzzing and humming tones, occasionally with the obscure sounds of objects falling, pushed to the faraway background. Although I didn't hear Whetham do much beyond what he usually does, I think this was a pretty good CD, perhaps even one of the best I heard from him so far.

Minimal yet always changes in smaller details and throughout making an excellent form of new George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC - now, if malls would play this I'd be around them more. If you are not emerged in his sound world, then you find this probably highly annoying.

That's the 'live' side of Chessex, but there is also a studio side. Here he works quite often with other people and also with the idea of sustaining sounds. These other people provide him with instruments such as violins, three of them on this release played by Ekkehard Windrich, Steffen Tast and Elfa Run Kristindottir and his main collaborator Valerio Tricoli on reel-to-reel recorder and electronics. I have no idea Bettye Swann The Soul View Now this 'composing' of Chessex works: its a notated on paper and these four players interpretate that?

Or did all of them play bits of the music which Chessex mixed together? Hard to say. I haven't quite figured out the answer. What I do know is that George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC almost thirty minute piece is a great one.

It reminds me of the concerts I saw from Chessex: loud especially after the break when things start building up againsustainment, overtone like, orchestral, seemingly on end, but of course it has an end… This is another fine work by Chessex, moving, textural, orchestral, modern… now, if only all modern composing sounded like this! I had to remind her of the one time when, standing on a waste bin, overlooking the adults, she very much enjoyed MoHa! But times change I guess, and peer pressure gets stronger, plus: who wants to be associated with daddy's taste?

These eight tracks are from various limited vinyl releases from the last three years, three of their own singles and two sides from split records. Anders Hana and Morten J. Olsen: drums, keyboards and guitars. But also with lots of electronics and a laptop to alter every part of the drumkit through self-built software. What I like about MoHa!

Like a cold shower, it totally feeds you with new energy. Not being a collector of any kind, I missed out on these vinyl releases before, but I think I would prefer this crystal clear CD version anyway expertly mastered by Jeff Carey.

Excellent compilation. Here its one Tom Lawrence, who created a CD with ten different pieces all recorded at the Pollardstown Fen, 'one of the last remaining calcium-rich spring-fed post-glacial valley fens in Western Europe'. George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC his microphone mostly below the water level, he picks up animal life, water beetles and water bugs and such like. Abstractionism reduced to one gesture. One sweep. One movement of the sword.

Great collages, the only real pop artist in Belgium, latex word paintings, pneumatic forms before someone else got bigger with it. Always on the move. The way Wout Vercammen acts, performs, talks and moves is perfectly captured on this LP!

When living in Antwerp, chances are you witnessed a Wout Vercammen performance without even realizing it, this is possible at any given moment.

Smuggling jenever into prison, painting the copper dome of the Carolus Borromeus church white, filling blue garbage bags with air, and especially howling like a wolf, primitive throat singing and using the whole bar George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC a percussive instrument!!!

Wout Vercammen changes reality, and makes it a tiny bit better. This George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC is a collection of accidently recorded "moments" and a composition of a black, a yellow and a red paint bucket all shook up through a synth and a 4 track! All varying from percussive punk primitive madness comparable to Robertinho Silva Robertinho Silva Hjuler, a strange conversation in a garden to soundpoetry, howling and screaming.

I am absolutely psyched to release this, as Wout Vercammen along with Ludo Mich has always been my favorite George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC psycho! The LP comes in a offset printed sleeve with pictures of the artist, an insert with more pictures and liner notes by art critic Hans Theys! I was struck by Joshua's mix of shyness, amazing and heavy acoustic guitar playing and his encyclopedic knowledge of weirdo music.

His music is usually so silent that it makes you all tense and walk on socks instead of wooden shoes. Some of the recordings were overdubbed in This is a beautiful collection of collaged scrambled bedroom madness, teenage wilderness, guitar noise, acidfolk, almost psych, organ fuckery, space between the tape deck and the player, outsider beauty!!!!!!!

As a "prize" I could release their record inspired by the subject matter. Which became a beautiful audiobook like a madman's guide to alienville! The medicine these chaps have to use makes em sing in different colours and add styles to eachother that never heard of eachother's existence. Comes in a collaged cover with a new born baby on it and prince Charles and an insert.

You can smell them from a mile away, they're the adults raising their kids on homebrew white George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC, King Krule The Ooz producing the kind of farts you can't hear though the stench is worse than the ones that sound like a brassband. The governement of Finland is not proud of this sick family, they try to keep it silent, rarely George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC interviews to press from other countries and make sure planes hardly George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC out.

The only instruments that made it were a few balloons and a crappy casio. On arrival they found a microphone, a drum and more toys, climbed the WFMU building and played the craziest session ever! Like a bunch of children discovering the 50's euro avant garde scene, the 60's psychedelic free jazz and pre-punk scene, the 70's sound poetry and punk scene and the 80's disco George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC in one afternoon!!

This LP sounds like a mix of all of that I guess. Limited to copies, comes in a psychedelic duo coloured cover by Dennis Tyfus. This recording took place in the building and garden of Fundacao de Serralves and Porto David Bowie Lodger Hotel. The basic idea was to record the sound of running horses for a collaborative public sound sculpture by both artists, however during the process other sounds such as drunk Venezualan singing, "vacuumcleaning", rambling, and discussions about Maurizio Catalan and the snake of jungle book who by the way "has a very stupid expression on his face" landed on the tape which changed the running horses into crazy horses.

This record is released for the "involved" exhibtion in Shanghai, curated by Phillippe Pirotte. Limited to copies, B-side features an etching by Tuymans and Balka.

LP "i don't know a rabi that yells as high pitched and psycho then nik rizili! Telling stories about the dude always sounds like theyre untrue or seriously exaggerated, the way he lives sounds like a fairytale and the way he acts would resemble the heaviest mix of Bukowski and Bobby Colombo. Jos lives in a tiny house underneath a radio tower of the national TV and radio station VRT, where he works as an audio librarian.

The house is built on the highest point of the area in a forest. You can see it from miles and miles away. Its tiny but can be called a museum! It is full of homemade instruments and broken pianos, amazing wooden stringed instruments made of garbage and all kinds of foreign instruments no one remembers the name of.

Some call him the Belgian Beefheart and the George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC that already forgot about Beefheart talk about a local little Howlin Wolf. Jos always made self-released zines, tapes and more recently, mountains of CD-Rs of homemade blues, broken bottle experiments and heavy free music folk. This LP is a selection of tracks of a recent CD-R of tape and record player experiments spiced with vacuum cleaners, rotting voices, undefinable strings, pianos, etc.

Its absolutely unthinkable his work could be potentially lost in time and space, for Graffiti Graffiti sake, the dude is a genius! This LP comes in a gold and white George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC by Dennis Tyfus and an offset printed insert! The audio was taken from a video called "Fred Bervoets over leven en werk", George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC was made by the Audio Visual department at K.

Leuven, Belgium. Tyfus makes his t-shirt wet and connects the substantial with the impossible. Like a nutty Vangelis bringing forth a goof dipped swaggering pressure.

A transition into surreal cheesecakes, wrinkled foreheads and gay bombs over Ibiza. Radical behaviour might be dying out in other cities, but in Vomgrill's hometown Antwerp, local retards still help it thrive. No money in the bank but a stuffed hedgehog on the desk that never kisses the asses of the masses. Heavily influenced by electro-acoustic awareness, mid 80's strobe muscles, back-and-forth stereo holla, spiked metal logos and space age monkey brains.

Like meeting a cat in a thunderstorm thinking about suicide. Tyfus spits out emotions like they're George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC morning Albany pancakes.

Thick and juicy on the outside, pitchblack and lost once inside. After vivisection and violence, Jimmy Smith And Wes Montgomery Further Adventures Of Jimmy And Wes before variation Another footnote in Antwerp's cosmic history and well worth a dime or two.

You say one-dimensional? Eat mud. Tyfus locks doors with all eyes closed. No MacGuyver but Sun Ra Atlantis has a blueprint for every situation and a back-up plan made out of cheddar. Music to give girls and icegrill to, if she doesn't smile back you can always throw some d's on that bitch.

Cut the fingers off your gloves so you George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC feel. If you George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC enough energy stay up late. Dennis is loud. No cold turkey, he'll keep you up all night. No Transformers chit chat either but foreplay, orgasm and wine sipping rolled in one disgusting carpet blunt. Shit hurts. For this new LP he used piano, harmonium, cello, amplifier, zither, tape recorder, George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC, banjo, thumb piano, viola, organ etc.

Beautiful heavy layers of tick synth sperm, bells, and creepitronics! Kind of weird to listen to this one goes again one step further then her LP on George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC and her other tape and CDR work, it Arthur Jones Scorpio includes her amazing sensitive homemade synthesizer work but besides that there's a vocal only piece on it recorded in the Antwerp Cathedral, a piece with Slick Rick Childrens Story use George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC a drumset, another vocal only piece sung in her kitchen, a very sad piano and voice piece recorded in a boathouse in Antwerp.

This records feels like a human being pressed onto vinyl, you can still smell the burning skin A lot of heavy mixed feelings, sadness, happiness and joy on one LP! This sounds like moving the heaviest metal closet on a little rubber boat from Brighton to the east coast of the United States, kicking off with a George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC free jazzy tune Gloria Estefan Gloria of retarded trumpets stuffed with little babies screaming for a change slightly changing into ice cold acoustic metal scraping ambience.

Tons of different sounds to discover and very unclear whether they came out of a trumpet, a drumset, a mouth or a whale. Edmond De Deyster was a rather shy nihilist, who didn't even tell his own family he was making music until the late eighties.

He never released anything because he thought no one was interested in his psychedelic synth sounds. Sadly he died inthe last 6 George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC of his life he didn't record any music anymore.

This is a first selection of his archive, taken from 2 reel tapes mentioningno other info. I hope it's the earliest recordings he did, but I am not sure, as it's possible that the reels that don't mention anything were recorded at an earlier Goblin Zombie His early stuff is comparable to the more symphonic sounding synthesizer waves and tones of Conrad Schnitzler for example.

Beautiful dark synth explosives, blurry and squirky layered sounds, I wish this was really and endless record spinning all day long while I'm "working"! Dive Miaux. Fever Various Artists. Dreaming of Being a Tampon Reijo Pami. Popcorn Various Artists. Noise Nomads Noise Nomads.

Willie Smits is a trained forester, a microbiologist, conservationist, animal rights activist, wilderness engineer and social entrepreneur. He has lived in Borneo since and is an Indonesian citizen. While working as a forest researcher in East Jeroen Smits is a former Dutch cricketer.

He is a right-handed batsman who usually occupies the position of wicketkeeper. Bart Smits is a Dutch heavy metal singer. He was the original singer in The Gathering, and he sang on their first album Always The George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC year he left them to form Wish.

After one full-length album and four EPs, the band The small and out of phase intervals, the changes in speed, etc. If you can and want to accommodate to this level and perspective, 'Horpma' shows another side of how music can be enjoyed. They are experts in creating a mix of ambient, industrial, experimental trip hop, etc. But for me this is just another example of what rockbands are very good at.

Creating impressive wall of sounds, that camouflage the very limited set of musical ideas they use. This is a quality in itself if you want, but…. A lot happened, as with 'Heavy Weather' they present their 9th album.

Some of the pieces have more or less George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC song structure, others however are more close to ambient sound collages. But they did not convince me, as said, although I enjoyed it at moments. Craig Vear's release for instance comes on the division called Cluster, which is not the department of cosmos, but anything to do with ambient and drones. On this new release he works again with field recordings, from various places including the antartics, but its not always easy to recognize them, as Vear uses a lot of computer treatments to alter the sounds he recorded.

He does that with some care for detail, but not always with great originality. The icy fields it depicts now, sound like a George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC of worn out plug ins, granular synthesis and stretched out sounds with ambisonic treatments. Having said that, its not bad at all.

At times a bit louder than the usual computer musician operating in this field, with somewhat louder sounds, but on the other hand spacious enough to qualify as 'fine drone' music.

Highly minimal, sometimes almost to a complete stand-still. Of an entirely different nature is the first release on the division called Badly Organized, for all things avant-garde, new music, improvised, dada, obscure and naive. I never heard of him. His spoken word stuff is set to music by George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC Augst and Rudiger Carl. Augst we remember as a member of Freundschaft.

Even when you understand German its not easy to understand what this is all about. A very German release, quite obscure, but also quite nice. The music is made with electronics, drums, accordion, and keyboards, fits really George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC the voice. I assume Augst and Carl cut up the voice a bit to fit the music into, and they do a great job. It sounds improvised and cabaret like at the same time.

It needs more insight in the German George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC than I could possibly provide for. Nice since its very odd. If George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC understood well, the music on this CD was transmitted during a concert to the audience holding hand held radios, while Schaefer was in back of the hall.

I guess the music presented George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC is not an audience recording, but a line recording. The whole thing is dedicated to his new born son, Phoenix. I was thinking of the boy, in ten years time, asking Dad 'what is this'. Oh its a CD, see dedicated to you, I made it when you were born. I'd love to see his reaction. I was thinking of this, Tom And Jerry On On I thought two things: a the music is great, trademark Schaefer stuff.

Radio crackles, organ like drones George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC on the Shruti box, magnetic waves; ambient music perhaps, harking towards musique concrete, due to the Barrington Levy Murderer Tell Them A Ready of field recordings.

Oh and b isn't this all a bit to dark to George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC the new born life? Maybe Schaefer thinks otherwise, but I thought it was all a bit sombre, dark and austere. That's how I came to think of the year old Phoenix asking daddy: why is this is all so dark? I couldn't think what to answer, but Schaefer has some time. So for, a little bit older, this is all no problem, as I think Schaefer did another excellent CD, although perhaps not necessarily shedding new light or making a radical change in his career, but as dark, austere, atmosphere as it is, its great.

For this one he Earl Cunningham Cool Profile School Girl field recordings in The Mall, Broadmead, Bristol. We see a picture of him on the insert, holding up his microphone, near the escalator.

Shopping is not an activity I enjoy very much, nor shopping George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC, perhaps for that reason George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC they always buzz with activity. George Toet Smits Isomopolis ICC, ventilators, escalators, and above muzak. I am not sure if Whetham feels the same about malls, John Bender Plaster Falling calls his release 'Mall Muzak', with a sarcastic undercurrent, or perhaps even considers this to be alternative muzak for shopping malls, but somehow I think this is all not the case.

    In the ICC (International Cultural Centre) in Antwerp the visual artist and singer George Smits in presented a performance that focused on his concept of ‘Isomopolis’ (or ‘Polystyrenopolis’ in English): an amalgam of sculptures that produce acoustic vibrations and retain them for a long period of time.
