YOSHIHIDE OTOMO / VOICE CRACK

Bits, Bots And Signs

(Erstwhile) Used CD $7.00

“Recorded in March 2000 in St. Gallen, Switzerland, where the trio generated gently pulsing rumbles, piercing whistles and lingering whines, fusing the varied sounds into a series of expansive panoramas. A brittle fabric of sound, unifying notions of instant composition with the radiating randomness of live electronics.”

VOICE CRACK

Shock_Late

(Entenpfuhl - EMM06) LP $25.00

Andy Guhl and Norbert Möslang’s "cracked everyday electronics" from 1998. “Their soundscapes, always improvised and created using these cracked (i.e., tampered-with) everyday electronics,” says incursion.org, “are filled with subtle shifts, a host of sounds sometimes quiet and sometimes more intrusive, and always dramatic and engaging.” The Sound Projector aggrees: “Far from an empty, formless grind-o-groans, this is a structured panoply of slices of chocolate devil's food cake sound-events, all set in motion simultaneously like a pack of running hares going over the hill. A richness of creative racket.”
