Thomas Carnacki / Vulcanus 68
(Alethiometer / Gigante Sound - WHISTLE05) split LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)
On one side, real-time manipulation of found objects by Gregory Scharpen, an original members of the live incarnation of irr. app. (ext.), using coffee grinder, half a pair of time-worn epaulets, a large bowl of sand, violas, pages from a book, broken autoharp, jar of marbles, chandlestick, rocks, and field recordings from the Antarctic by Cheryl Leonard. On the flip, two tracks by Jared Blum and Dominic Cramp take the cues from pioneers of musique concrete, such as Ussachevsky, Xenakis, Ruth White and BBC Radiophonic, with quick slices and jarring movement of manipulated tape and electronics.
