Tip! *50 copies limited edition. In process of stocking. 2023 stock* "Spectral Evidence (zero193) is a fabulacious piece of untamed, noisy, performance music. Slot this one into your toaster-cassette and you’ll be amazed that only two people are creating this enormous resonating vat of rattlement. Kris Limbach we know from the Emitter Micro label in Berlin. On that label, he’s been involved in some real puzzlers and heavy crunchers of abstract electronic blockery, none more puzzling than the two soundtrack LPs he did in 2018. Hell’s Bells is particularly odd, Spaghetti Western themes crossed with doom metal. He’s more of a cinema student than a sound artist anyway, so perhaps not surprising that he “plays” the Super-8 projector on this record, also credited with mics and tapes. The home movie projector is yet another domestic appliance (see above, re. humidifier, toothbrush) that can unhinge the mind of a scientist if used by the correct evil genius, mesmerising the brain with its motor and flashing light. The other half of the act is Rieko Okuda, who is doing for the amplified violin what Gummo Marx did for the laundry box. Her astounding performance is doubly surprising as this Japanese genius is mainly known for her classical piano work, though she is on record as having banged a sampler too. Hmm, I see Rieko also played on that Hell’s Bells record. Coincidence…or something more?

All the tapes and CDs in this bundle are recommended, but this Spectral Evidence is really something special, exhibiting wild dynamics, incredible nuances of sound combinations, and an energised sympathy between the two players. It feels like they’re really working something out of their system, ejecting an unwanted revenant or unwelcome visitor. Will the exorcism succeed? Play this to find out." ~ Ed Pinsent, The Sound Projector
