Iruretagoiena, Oier: Kulakantu (Nueni)

Four pieces from Oier Iruretagoiena (Tusuri, Larraskito Audio Dissection Unit) using computer generated sound of an abstract nature, with irregular rhythms and intersections in harmonics and feedback, actively reserved and avoiding extremes while creating a cohesively curious collection of quirky, aberrant, cranky and surprisingly compelling connected sounds.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Oier Iruretagoiena is another lesser-known creator from the Spanish quarter devoted to delivering a particularly cruel strain of noise; I often feel that many of them are in thrall to Miguel A. Garcia who seems to have set a template for the entire Basque region with his stern, brooding abstractions.

Oier Iruretagoiena, also known as Oier I.A. and Tusuri and a member of the group Larraskito Audio Dissection Unit, has recorded with Garcia and Oscar Martin, and is clearly has what it takes to wring strange wheezing and grunting forms from the innards of his computer.

On Kulkantu (Nueni #005). he seems to be controlling feedback and white noise in a carefully-wrought and highly twisted fashion, producing a complex intermittent stream of exquisite ugliness. Unlike our two friends above, he doesn't seem especially angry, but is playing the role of an isolated loner, breeding unusual types of insect hybrids which he keeps in perspex cages in his basement.

The cover art is from the pipe organ at St Martin of Tours in Ataun, described elsewhere as a "masterpiece of Iberian Baroque organ-making". I'd like to think Oier made a special pilgrimage to see this historically significant instrument; what self-respecting keyboard player wouldn't?"-The Sound Projector
