‘LoopKlängeNoise’ brings together the skills of Arnaldo Pontis, a Sardinian industrial and experimental musician working as the Magnetica Ars Lab project, and that of the legendary Maurizio Bianchi from Milan, whose best known work remains a pivotal influence on much noise, power electronics and dark ambient that has come since the early 1980’s and onwards.
Via the contribution of MAL, ‘LoopKlängeNoise’ is a highly conceptual piece with regards to tonality, visuals and the ideas that came to influence it in the first place. A great sum of inspiration, as indicated within the booklet is accredited to the work of the Russian-born Expressionist artist Wassily Kandinsky.
‘LoopKlängeNoise’ also features the contributions of various musicians from the Sardinian and Italian industrial scene, each contribution covering the thirteen tracks that make up the album. The assisting artwork, coming within a DVD sized case, shows us a series of black and white photographs that are shot amidst bleak, dystopian, modernist or dilapidated architecture.
Limited edition of 300 copies in a slim DVD box, with a 16-page booklet with info and photos of industrial mining areas of the Sulcis region in Sardinia. The booklet also includes excerpts from writings and quotes by John Cage, Klaus Schulze, Wu Ming, William S. Burroughs, Jean Baudrillard, Luigi Russolo and more.
