DAS SYNTHETISCHE MISCHGEWEBE

Frequency Conquistadors

(Pan - PAN6) LP $27.00 (Out-of-stock)

Das Synthetische Mischegewebe's track titles here stem from El Mundo Alucinante by Reinaldo Arenas (which itself is inspired by François-René de Chateaubriand's Mémoires d'outre-tombe). It is about time rather than history, and about being in history. Having lost the war of time, the only thing that remains to do is be, and here we go, 'being infinitely required' as a means of expression. DSM began in the early '80s, partook of the international industrial cassette scene; composed for light installations with open-reel machines, cassette recorders, microphone and guitar fuzz boxes with loud, quiet, occasionally full blast and frequently snuck-in little sounds, all alternating within a few seconds; created an electroacoustic anti-music; performed unusual concerts in the underground network as well as in high art institutions and museums (such as Centre Pompidou); created mixed media installations, exhibitions and conferences on cognitive science and neurologic research related topics; toured with changing line-ups; and participated in international festivals throughout Europe and the US. Limited edition of 330 hand-numbered copies, in jacket and a two-tone silkscreened PVC sleeve.

Hapax (Legomenon)

(Phage - PT178) CD $9.75 (Out-of-stock)

Three long tracks that are re-compositions of live recordings made between 2003 and 2011 best thought of as field recordings of art instillations: sounds generated by everyday objects manipulated by electric motors or applied mechanics and then amplified.
