Directives : Protenomaly [CASSETTE w/ DOWNLOAD] (Aubjects)

Aubjects label leader D. Petri (Amalgamated, Dog Hallucination) continues his work in unusual and sometimes aggressive exploration of the guitar as a sound source, looking for "novel anomalies" in amorphous compositions, seeking an extreme mixture of audio fidelities, peculiar equipment configurations, personally significant field recordings & various multi-level manipulations, in parts joined by Hillary Ulman on percussion.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"On one of my favourite labels from the USA, there is a new release by the man who runs the show, D. Petri, who works as Directives; he's also a member of Amalgamated. Like on his previous release, 'Usphutorontus Deius Nissesubla' (see Vital Weekly 1119), he receives help from Hillary Ulman on percussion instruments. These are, honestly, not easy to recognise in the music, which I would think is computer-based primarily and at times very loud and at other times tones down quite a bit. I assume that, as before, he uses many of the same instruments (guitar, piano, field recordings) and gives these the make-over they need. In some of these pieces, these instruments are still easily be recognised. In a piece such as 'Beyond Registration', there is a curious rock approach to be noted; rock and not rock at the same time. This approach reminded me of the 'studio-as-instrument' approach of groups such as Biota and Mnemonists, primarily when they worked together; there is undoubtedly an amount of free improvisation going on here, but through editing techniques, there is an organisation to the madness to be noted. Otherwise, than those older bands, I would think that Directives is a bit rougher. Through a somewhat noisier approach, there is no similar refinement here, which I thought was a good thing. It marks a difference, another exploration if you will and will, perhaps, be of more interest to those with their heads buried in the world of noise. However, don't expect much in the form of traditional rock music, as D. Petri's offers a far more mutated version of that. Drums bang around, and distorted guitars, slowed down, reversed and granulated; all the musique concrète techniques now applied to a few rock instruments, mixed in with some field recordings and 'sounds'. More references? Think P16.D4 or P. Children. Quite a different release than before, but I like it a lot."-Fran de Waard, Vital Weekly
