Garcia, Miguel A. / August Traeger
Absquatulate Azimuth [CASSETTE]
Released in: USA
Miguel A. García (aka Xedh) from the Basque country, is one of the most dynamic sound artists in the Spanish scene. His work focuses mainly on the composition and electro-acoustic improvisation. He uses sounds taken from electronic devices residues, often interrelated with field recordings or acoustic instruments, in the search of an intimate, intense and immersive experience. A music of adventurous forms, full of contrasts and having nevertheless a sense of humor. His background comprises fine arts and audiovisual technology, having created projects such as Válvula Antirretorno, Baba Llaga or Mubles, questioning the borders between electro-acoustic academic music, industrial music and the so called outsider music.
August Traeger is the leader of Bicephalic Records, a DIY record label for modern experimental music presenting limited small editions of cassettes, records, cds, and dvds. His sound work includes extensive performance with 910 Noise, and a long list of experimental releases under his own name, plus Somnaphon and Food World. The playful and odd tracks on this cassette were recording using contact mic + broken stringed instrument + voice + puredata + hardware effects.
