a cdr am nuts with.. fibo trespo the brainchild of sindre bjerga & kjetil brandsdal still stands as one of my favest lo-fi groups. their eponymous cdr being my favest as is closer to the more improvised lo-fi sounds i love. of course nearly all of their releases are nuts, from lo-fi rock to more noisy and improv stuff including parodieds like the 'fibo trespo' (another self titled cdr) which was a parody of the 1st iron maiden lp including the same cover, track listing changing only the name 'iron maiden' with 'fibo trespo' and so on.. guess their smalltown supersound lp is probably their weakest moment at least in my humble opinion... but back to this one... intially was out on gold soundz and was if am not mistaken one of the reasons i had written long ago to sindre to obtain it. got it listened it liked it and as as limited to 50 dropped a line and asked for a reissue... includes bonus the myke droner 7" too.
pretty funny but is exactly 7 years since the mini uk tour of 2002 and the release of this baby... matt & mark were (at least matt still is) for playing the trumpet & cello. however during the 'reductionism' heyday they searched other genres too. this is one of their first (if am not mistaken) live sets where the use of amplified textures was used.
another cdr to celebrate a child's birth... little nefeli's time now... like the machida cdr we talked with mihalis 'bout it... i was nuts with black to comm then (and still like this works) him too so we dropped a line to mark and asked for a recording which turned to be our favest black to comm!!!! no kiding because is an absurd... get it here, play loud & you'll see why...
vance orchestra have been one of my favest 'ambient' projects (together with maeror tri and a couple more). for long i wanted to make a cdr or cd release of their work and when finally i discussed it with mars the project has split. mars was workin under the (ad)vance(d) name in a style not so different the the actual vance orchestra stuff.
at the same time i was and still am fond of red dot comics and zenia's work. no matter that sadly i don't have (actually never had that much) time to focus also on comics from time to time i check whatever i can. absurd did 1 collaboration with red dot actually contributed a short story in an issue of the zine together with other people too and the idea was born for another collaborative issue. don't recall why was delayed, etc however absurd's contribution this time was to be a vance orchestra (that turned to (ad)vance(d) cdr. issue was delayed so the cdr came under red dot's credit in a separate edition.
is almost a kind of 'tradition' that for almost every kid that is born regarding close pals, relatives to do a release to celebrate the event or almost something like that... don't wanna cut the long story short... however for the birth of little maximos, son of our friends yiannis & theodora the idea was droped by mihalis who suggested a release of yoshio machida whose work i hadn't listened earlier and this one was my first encounter. limited to 70 copies housed (as the black to comm cdr too) in a transparent a4 envelope w/ a design of little amaryllis...
here's the cdr info
composed by Yoshio Machida recorded at Aoyama Book Center, Roppongi in Tokyo in june 9, 2007 Yoshio Machida: Tenor Steel Pan
This is an improvisation for a book store. I sometimes play there. "Read A book With Steel Pan" is the event title. Like a piano performance at lounge in hotel, it's a live BGM. People sometimes stop in front of me, and pass away, choose a book, etc..., just share time and space together through the sound.
Limited to 70 handnumbered copies. A5 size transparent colored plastic envelope with fairytale booklet inside. Artwork: Maria Amaryllis Released: 20/08/2007 Tracklisting: 1. Improvisation total time: 31:28
