Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"A New City' is a collaborative album by Dutch sound artists M. Klein and Steffan de Turck. Field recordings and keyboards come together in two engaging sound collages. Diaristic everyday fragments are sequenced and layered to tell a story that remains just out of reach. There is a dream logic going on where things look oddly familiar but the proportions are not right. Things move either too slow or too fast. Overly familiar sounds like wind, rain, traffic and humming air conditioning units pass by. Simple but surprisingly melodic keyboard chords suggest a part of a song played over and over again, like a memory barely remembered but still felt."-Het Generiek"


Artist Biographies

"Steffan de Turck (Goirle, 1974), known by the pseudonym Staplerfahrer, is a sound artist. His work is mainly characterized by the use of digital samples and analog noise, whereby everyday utensils produce distorted sounds through electrotechnical modification.

In September 2007 he curated the acoustic noise project at the Incubate Festival in Tilburg. He also played at the Interpenetration Festival in Graz and the NUmusic Festival in Stavanger, Norway.

He is a member of the underground label and artist collective Vatican Analog from Tilburg."

Intoku Inversions
(Anarchy Moon Recordings/Nishe)
Beautiful long-form drones and harmonic interactions develop and are then shaken up with sonic deformations and collisions, returning to beautiful environments and then reversed once again, from the duo of sonic explorers Bob Bellerue and Christian Ronn, recording in Copenhagen using organs, electronics, winds, and feedback to create these wonderfully alien domains.
Chansons du Crepuscule (Helene Breschand / Elliott Sharp)
Aube
(zOaR Records)
A collection of original songs and interpretations inspired by Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, from vocalist Hélène Breschand, also performing on harp, electronics & field recordings, in a duo with Elliott Sharp, who creates grooves and instrumental environments on guitar, synth, bass, drum programming & electronics, each song beautifully fractured and rich in detail.

Noetinger, Jerome & SEC_
La Cave Des Etendards
(Mikroton Recordings)
Titled from the two venues where these concerts were recorded, the duo of Jerome Noetinger and Mimmo Napolitano both use revox reel to reel recorders, plus feedback systems, laptop and other electroacoustic devices to create strange and gripping aural narratives built of abstract elements yet creating deceptively concrete, compelling stories; exceptional.
Liedwart, Kurt / Petr Vrba
Punkt
(Mikroton Recordings)
The debut album of free electronic music explorers Kurt Liedwart on synthesizers, cracked homemade and everyday electronics, and Petr Vrba on synthesizers and electronics, where each track is built upon a permutating sonic foundation of well-paced compositions that transition between hypnotic abstract structural forms and textural and timbral experimentation.
Castello, Angelica / Jerome Noetinger
Disturbio
(Mikroton Recordings)
A study on vibrating surfaces in an album of active environments in the debut album from the duo of Angelica Castello and Jerome Noetinger, both using tapes, samples, loops, radios and electronics, with Noetinger on revox and Castello on Paetzold flute, presenting seven staggering and awe-inspiring works, each wild canvases of sound from atmospheric to tectonic.
Chesterfield (Burkhard Stangl / Angelica Castello)
Consuelo
(Mikroton Recordings)
Expanding on Burkhard Stangl colo concert at the 2014 Reheat festival at Kleylehof based on Consuelo Velazquez's song "Besame Mucho", the duo of Stang and Angelica Castello recomposed it, mixing new pieces with old plus home recordings, accidental recordings, live performances, &c, creating a Chesterfield diary of songs, of noise, of longing and of dreaming.
Abecassis, Eryck / Francisco Meirino
La Gueule Du Loup
(Fragment Factory)
Recording at the GRM Studios, the French duo of Eryck Abecassis and Francisco Meirino (phroq) use unpatched modular sythesizers that they program during performance, adding a level of risk and unpredictability to their detailed and rich sonic conversation, informed by decades of research and performance that both musicians bring to this intensely interesting album.
