KAPOTTE MUZIEK

Praag Rotterdam

(PacRec) Used CD $2.00

“Random shuffling sounds and foreground textures pass across … intermittently,” notes Aversion about the Prague recording on this disc by Roel Meelkop, Peter Duimelinks, and Frans de Waard. “Other machinated types of noises and faint samples … are … quiet and restrained…, so it’s all rather abstract and obscure….” The Rotterdam piece “build[s] up more quickly with … glitchy wisps of distortion and rather hellishly piercing high-end feedback … until it finally retreats to the distance and shifts back and forth into a lower sizzle.”

LASSE MARHAUG

The Great Silence

(PacRec) Used CD $3.00

“In [Marhaug’s great wall of noise] there is a great silence, an unspoken and often yearned-for silence. For his noise to be so brutal, loud and destructive your mind almost needs to contrast it with the moments [of true] silence.”
