january 2008 release ; the fifth volume of this ongoing series of double-disc compilations collecting newly unearthed/discovered/licensed gems from the assorted back alleyways of early electronic music with contemporary offerings from a current crop of like-minded electronic music practitioners ...

for this volume the (many) highlights include françois-bernard mâche’s “prélude,” wolf vostell’s “elektronicher dé-collage,” helmut lachenmann’s “scenario,” and from the more recent end of the spectrum a particularly nice blast from maso yamazaki & a bit of gristle from legendary early uk noise act sutcliffe jügend ...

given the purview of mms; these compilations are becoming something of a yearly festival - much in here to be excited about, thanks to the hard work of sub rosa’s guy-marc hinant. highly recommended, of course; and not just this most recent volume (the prior four all contain a veritable king’s ransom in early electronic music gold...)
sub rosa press release ::
an anthology of noise & electronic music vol. 5 - fifth a-chronology 1920-2007

charlemagne palestine, père ubu, sutcliffe jügend, li chin sung aka dickson dee, alireza mashayekhi, rogelio sosa, christian galaretta, françois-bernard mâche, richard maxfield, wolf vostell, andré boucourechliev, helmut lachenmann, claude ballif, mauricio kagel, vladimir mayakovsky, raoul hausmann, gil joseph wolman, léo kupper, josef anton riedl, sten hanson + henri chopin, dajuin yao, ground zero, masonna, club moral, dub taylor

digipack 2 cd + 50 pages booklet

here i am, for the fifth time, facing this impossible task no one has asked me to do. how can one bring together the history of electronic and concrete music to the history of noise music? for this volume, i want to highlight pieces illustrating a technique (claude ballif's points,mouvements), a country (shur, op. 15 by alireza mashayekhi), a studio (helmut lachenmann at the ipem), there are also historic (françois bernard mâche's prélude), and radical (spectrum ripper by masonna) works that have ripped apart ancient definitions. all this organized with internationalism in mind and, for once, a focus on the voice - not as sung words, their traditional facet in music (from pop songs to lieder and operas), but as the word itself, recited, distorted, rendered abstract or disaggregated and screamed (the incantation so often a part of rock and noise music).

fifth issue of bixobal ; released on the first anniversary on the magazine’s existence ... i’d like to take this time out to commend eric and co. on their hard work ; this magazine is filling a vast void untouched by the majority of contemporary music publications (plus, let’s face it, we’re all tired of reading about fringe music only on the internet) ...

articles on/by onde, noggin’s michael griffen (rip), dave nuss & the source family (i.e. father yod / ya ho wa 13), assophon records, climax golden twinsrob millis, etc ... as always, mandatory reading.
