Engines Of Desire (Tape)
Label: Regional Bears
Since the early 80s, Blackhumour has been stubbornly dedicated to an
investigation of the cracks which exist in common speech practice and
the vacancy of the signifier. Vocal event is mined for stochastic
determinism and glottal smut. While affinities exist, it would be difficult to categorize this
material as sound poetry, despite a focus on voice, breath and the
subtle diversion of linguistic intent. What is it. Repetition and
magnification direct the incremental units of a sound which manages to
focus sonic density to a concrete minimalism. Some comparison can be
made to Halls contemporaries Anne Gillis, the Haters or Kapotte Muziek,
but blackhumour has always generated its own gravitational pullEngines of Desire (2009) is a conceptual follow-up to Binary (and/or)
(1986). Do Business (1994-95) is the sequel to the uncompleted …she
visits. she doesn’t stay. as always, Blackhumour audio uses only the
sound of found-object spoken human voice with no effects, back - or
speed-masking. Because things are as they are – and this is how this is.
