Above Building

(FatCat - FATSP02) Used CD $5.00

Beautiful arrangements of found sound, thematically connected by their presence in the heights of tall buildings. Ambient and chaotic.



(K-raa-k3 - K3017) Used CD $5.00

Turtablism in the musique concrète tradition, though Schaefer's careful, organic approach to the slowly evolving material ensures that it’s never too far away from the sort of trippy ’70s kosmische electronica. Nonetheless, the rhythmic stuck grooves and gaseous noise connect to illbient and experimental sampling genres. The thirty-minute "Construction Eight" opens with pops, crackles and rocks crumbling in tectonic readjustment, before windy drones suggest the blackness of a subterranean void. Radio signals and an unhappy choir transform into night insects. “Construction Five” takes things into outer space with a liberal salting of ’50s electronic bleeps and whistles.
