Vogt, Michael

Vogt, Michael: Argonautika (Recommended Records)
Label: Recommended Records    
Released in: Great Britain    

"On the tuba, overdriven electronic devices, noisy, crackling tapes. In search of the ultra low harmony"-Michael Vogt
"A sound drama for tuba and electronics that constructs its own rich, twilit, rather alien, world. Only the sound of the tuba (sometimes), a few waves and a little thunder sound familiar, everything else is a mysterious presence; the electronics are not at all conventional and though much of the sound is clearly derived somehow from the tuba, it offers no foothold in a familiar place. If landscape were ever an appropriate metaphor for the product of a congeries of sounds, it would be applicable here. Strange, low, melodic lines emerge and submerge; winds from uncharted places bring threat and promise, perfume and debris. A genuinely unusual record that follows its own path all the way off the map. In five episodes, scored variously for single and double tubas, acoustic and electronic tubas, electronics, all manner of processing, and tape."-ReR Megacorp
