Jerman, Jeph / Mueller, Jon : Nodes and Anti-Nodes [DVD & mp3] [DVD] (Crouton)
Label: Crouton    
Released in: USA    


"Nodes and Anti-Nodes, a new DVD and audio file from Jeph Jerman and Jon Mueller, involves a variety of movements having either a visual or sound affect on other things - sometimes both. Whether by hand, vibration or other mechanical or natural methods, there's a relationship between these events that's interesting to consider. Watch a clip and read more about it.

After years of working with sound and vibrations, and documenting prepared and unprepared situations on recordings, Jeph Jerman and Jon Mueller now present a tapestry of visualizations to these sounds with 'Nodes and Anti-Nodes.' The DVD shows close-up views of the subtle actions in vibrating bodies, both audible and not. These scenes are glimpses into situations that Ernst Chladni and Hans Jenny might have pursued in a more scientific direction. But for the lay viewer, it's simply interesting to watch the real-time relationship between sound and material, and the juxtaposition of the results of natural movements paired with absolute silence. For those that would enjoy listening to the audio portion on the go, an individual MP3 file of the audio can be pulled from the disc. The DVD is packaged in a 7″ letterpressed and numbered chip board case and is limited to an edition of 300 copies.

About Jeph Jerman:
began playing drums in 1972 at the age of 13. spent my formative years in various bar bands while simultaneously seeking out more adveturous people to make more adventurous music. formed/joined a myriad of ensembles to that end, including: big joey, blowhole, city of worms etc. in the mid '90's i moved to seattle WA and became involved with the local improvised music community, playing with just about everyone. at some point i began to deconstruct my drum kit, ending up with a pile of sonorous things that i gradually replaced with stones, shells, sticks and feathers. i continue to investigate various ways of making/capturing sound and to document my efforts.

About Jon Mueller:
Jon Mueller has been an active drummer and percussionist since the mid-80s. Whether utilizing bombastic minimalism, dense interplay, or electroacoustic practices, his approach focuses on a physical dialog between situation and material. He has been featured on numerous recordings, and has performed throughout the U.S., Japan, and Europe."-Crouton Music
