Clarté Déserte
*100 copies limited edition on clear vinyl* New 10 track studio album by Andrew Chalk and Timo van Luijk, recorded 2020-2021 at Impression Lointaine and Kulta Saha. "Forth unobserved I wentIn darkness and security,By the secret ladder, in disguise,In secret, seen of none,Oh night more lovely than the dawn!Lost to all things and myself,And, amid the lillies forgotten,Threw all my cares away"
Irish composer David Fennessy is known for his intricate textures and arresting harmonies: the four works presented on this album, Caruso (Gold is the Sweat of the Sun), and the viola driven triptych Hauptstimme, Nebenstimme, and Nox, represent the many facets of his inventive music. The music in Caruso (Gold is the Sweat of the Sun) is almost completely made up of very short extracts from gramophone recordings of the Italian tenor opera singer Enrico Caruso (1873-1921) dated between 1903 and 19…
Sami Salo was the third member of Panasonic trio when they started in 1994. By the end of 1994 Sami decided to leave the band. Sami has extremely minimal approach on the music. The compositions consist of hardly audible errors of various electronic devices. All of tracks on this CD are from the recordings Sami did in the early and mid 90s. The cover of the CD is from the tape VOLTTI.
Lost Contact
Reissue of Randy Greif’s second cassette, released in 1984 on Swinging Axe Productions. Two side-long, extended pieces — industrial collage and ritual ambient with a strong classical influence. Hidden music. An infernal predecessor to Golden Joy Club.
Death Ovary Traces
Reissue of Argiope’s debut cassette, released by Slaughter Productions in 1994 following a small run on the artist’s own Atom Institute label. Argiope project was born after Marco Corbelli proposed that Federico De Caroli / Deca record a release for Slaughter. While Deca’s albums were still quite industrial, dark music, he felt that Marco deserved a much more extreme production than anything Deca recorded up to that point. The result was Argiope's debut release Death Ovary Traces, a work of depr…
Philadelphia-based K. Geiger is active under the guises of Dead Door Unit, Master Grave Services, and his imprint French Market Press producing ultra-limited noise tapes (often 7 copies or less) in unusual packaging that echoes labels like Sound Probe or SFCR. "Abandon" brings with it a refinement in style differentiating itself from early cassettes like "Laugh At The Devil". While I once described that release as reminiscent of an embryonic Prurient, this debut disc is both an evolution and a p…
Laugh At The Devil
Tip! *2024 reprint* Dead Door Unit is the alias of Northeastern US artist Ken Geiger. The project follows in an exploratory vein of tape-recorded junk noise and field recordings. "Laugh At The Devil" is a work raucously out-of-time, bringing to mind the murk of mid-aughts Hanson releases or even the obscure malice of Dom Fernow's earlier work. Geiger breeds a fresh perspective through destruction and reassembly; "desperation."
Original Waters
Previously released by Slaughter Productions in 1996. Argiope was the temporary nom de plume of Federico de Caroli — perhaps better known as Deca. This project specialized in concrete music with an emphasis on low-tech, industrial / ambient compositions.
Deathtrance Parable
Label debut of this miscalculated electronic project. All sounds plundered. False starts and new pretensions. Though an ecclesiastical effort, it remains a taped act of public humiliation.
2024 (lucky) stock. Sold out at source. White vinyl, 10“, limited edition of 500. This record was pressed by Carsten Nicolai through his Raster Noton imprint, specifically for Maurizio Nannucci's label Recorthings & Zona Archives and the Base art gallery where Nicolai's installation had been presented. As such, it has no mention of being a Raster Noton release, except for the Raster Noton website (that was selling half of the vinyl copies, and is still selling the download files), where it appea…
Fluxus Arte per Tutti
158 p, ills colour & bw, 17 x 24 cm, pb, English/Italian edition. This book offers an in-depth analysis of the prominent role Italy came to play in the Fluxus movement, which emerged in the late 1950s. It explores the editorial experience of Fluxus, the creation of “editions” – objects, graphics, artists’ books – and the important role this had in the movement’s spread. Inexpensive to produce and easy to distribute, these works were accessible to the wider public and in turn contributed to the F…
De Las Colonias Del Río De La Plata
Altercat proudly presents the definitive reissue of one of the crown jewels of South American jazz. Essentially the brainchild of Argentinian jazz’s leading figure Jorge López Ruiz, the project Viejas Raíces marked Lopez Ruiz’s departure from the traditional forms of jazz.
In Là
Timed in celebration of his 80th birthday, the venerable imprint, Alga Marghen, releases “In Là”, a stunning LP comprising a brand-new work by the groundbreaking English composer Gavin Bryars
** Deluxe 3LP set (+ digital) housed in heavy tip-on box with pigment ink foil stamping, mounted film laminated cover painting by Jeff Schlanger, three printed inner sleeves with original notes by William Parker and Alan Licht, original concert flyer re-print and a five photograph portfolio in black envelope ** A legendary concert by one of the great unrecorded bands in free jazz history is here at last. WEBO, the third installment in the Black Editions Archive series of previously unreleased re…
Orgonomic Music
* CD Edition * Out of print since 1981, this pressing features a full LP’s worth of unissued music, including what may be Jessica’s only vocal recording. Includes extensive liner notes by musician Jennifer Leitham and jazz historian Scott Yanow. Jessica Williams was one of the greatest jazz pianists of all time, but she was also a victim of geography. Her technical brilliance, complete control of the piano, creative imagination, wit, and constant desire to stretch herself put her at the top of h…
First Encounter
After playing with Mingus, Coltrane, Lady Day and Abbey Lincoln, inventive jazz pianist Mal Waldron moved to Europe and first reached Japan in 1970, where he met Idahoborn double-bassist Gary Peacock, who had played with Art Pepper, Bud Shank, Bill Evans and free-jazz giant, Albert Ayler before moving to Japan to study zen  buddhism. First Encounter, recorded in Tokyo in 1971 for French producer Herve Bergerat, shows that the intense pairing was quite natural, the harmonic dissonance of Waldron’…
Tribal Dance
Los Angeles bass titan Henry Franklin is bestknown for the two Skipper LPs issued by Black Jazz in 1972-74; 1977’s Tribal Dance is more obscure and arguably the best of the bunch, the spiritual jazz given an extra propulsive dimension via the excesses of Sonship, banging complex rhythms on his elaborate self-made drums, as heard on the opening title track and the extended ‘Cosmos Dwellers.’ Elsewhere, ‘Eric’s Tune’ has flamenco undercurrents, ‘Spring Song’ is a slow piano meditation, and ‘Prime …
Mysterious erotic Wamono record from the Nippon Columbia vaults, by Monica Lassen & The Sounds aka John Hennessy aka Japanese jazz musicians Kosuke Ichihara, Masami Kawahara and Masaoki Terakawa. Includes the killer track “Incitation” with its monstrous drum break, as featured in our Wamono A to Z Volume I.
La Jouissance
Mysterious erotic Wamono record from the Nippon Columbia vaults, by Monica Lassen & The Sounds aka John Hennessy aka Japanese jazz musicians Kosuke Ichihara, Masami Kawahara and Masaoki Terakawa. The sequel to “Woman!!” released a year earlier, in 1970
Light and breezy, pure and easy, that’s how I spent most of last week, and this album was a great soundtrack for it.  Osmar Milito is an interesting figure in Brazilian jazz, having a hand in the famous Canecão club in Rio and playing with the likes of Sylvia Telles, Leny Andrade, and Flora Purim early in his career, and later on doing lots of soundtrack work for those venerable Brazilian exports, telenovelas.  His post-bossa nova records are collectible for a reason: they’re damn good listening…
