2011 was an inspiring, trying, puzzling, but ultimately rewarding year ; although i have the looming sensation of being in "stasis" for long stretches throughout, looking back on documentaton i can see that i played 20 concerts, travelled to europe, saint louis (twice), new york (ditto), etc ... all while keeping a regular 60-hour work-week schedule (not bad ; should keep the various existential crises at bay for now) ...

afa reflections go, here's the blurb-ette i wrote (then neglected to send in, ha !!!) for the wire's year-end issue ::

... in boston, non event had a hell of a year (mark fell, jooklo duo w/ bill nace, frank bretschneider, mandlebrot & skyy, palmetto moon electronic group) as did spectral rehab (pete swanson & ben vida slayed, as did pat "indignant senility" maher) … plus it felt great to put on a concert for borbetomagus after having my sensibilities so strongly shaped by seeing them long ago ; in troy, the "earbrains" event organized by micah silver at empac was stellar (amazing sets & sound from lambkin / lescalleet, david shively, flower man, fat worm of error) ; in krems, hearing ivo malec's "triola" over the acousmonium was semi-religious, as was experiencing anthony mccall's "line describing a cone" & the schmickler / lehn duo ; in stl, pretty much the entire "float yr face" fest at floating labs was perfect (but esp. jeremyghost icekannapell, brett naucke, raglani, rene hell, & expo '70)

otherwise, just having the time, energy, & resources to continue narrowing in on a very specific set of ideas has been a blessing ; adopting another cat was a great idea - i recommend everyone do the same …

here's a photo of our new bundle of joy (her native habitat) ::


... we adopted temperance (aka tempestuousness, tempy, temes) from the "save a gato" network ; she'd been bouncing around since being rescued in puerto rico & was in need of a good home. we were worried at first at how she'd get along with the notoriously neurotic wilbur (aka halbczszons, dribcots) ::


... but within the first hour they were thick as thieves ::


... i finished assembling this (my current "instrument") ::


... which i used to compose this piece at the grm in paris ::



in the world of records; i found some of my long-time wants while in france (at the best record-fair i've ever been to) ::


... and of course we were lucky to "work" a great deal of excellent music here @ mms ; i'm going to single out the group ongaku reissue as my single favorite "best of the year" title - it's a crucial set of music whose very existence re-writes the history of free & electro-acoustic improvisation (seriously ; everyone should have a copy) ... matt carlson's "particle language" was another high-point (hopefully "synth music" tropes in 2012 will all follow in matt's footsteps & we'll have something of a return to "complexity" after all the faux new-age "light & easy" gerrymandering of the past few years) ; plus nate young's "stay asleep • regression vol. 2" was an eye-opener, easily eclipsing anything he's recorded w/ wolf eyes ...

... i also really dug the pekka airaksinen, jd emmanuel, harald großkopf, grupo nps, jonathan halper, & dub taylor reissues ... plus the ursula bogner, mark fell, hecker, hobo sonn, sean mccann, geoff mullen, bill orcutt, red horse, marcus schmickler, temporal marauder, chris watson, & artur zmijewski records ...


it was a great year for music & records ; one that will only be topped by this year (someone has to be optimistic about all of this ; might as well be me) ... -k

Alright 2011, here it goes - a very quick year, and even though I thought I was super under-productive, it turns out I did get quite a bit done. first and foremost, I said goodbye to warehouse living and moved into a sweet old Victorian house, and quickly got an awesome kitten, Tex.


We were told that she was found on the side of the road, possibly thrown out of a car, and her face was all scratched up. she quickly adjusted to her new home in cold New England, and apart from eating up some magnetic tape and barfing it up - things have gone swimmingly.

Oh man, oh man, what else ...

I sorta kept up with my swimming routine, and definitely didn't save as much money as I set out to. The winter went by in a foggy daze, fueled by beer and wine and not enough sleep. I spent most of my time either working or looking for furniture in consignment shops, and hunkering down in the new crib. After an early spring root canal, everything started to fall in place ...

Took a trip to Asheville, NC for Eli Keszler and Ashley Paul's wedding - where Jules and I played the Velvets "I'll Be Your Mirror" while E and A walked down the aisle (me on guitar and Jules on tambourine). This all led to quite a nice time cavorting and carrying on, lots of food and lots of wine and good times all around. Took a nice hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains and ate some darn good breakfast and grits.


It was a wonderful summer spent at flea-markets, namely the weekly Sunday event at the Seekonk Speedway. We made it out to the Brimfield Fair for a couple days, always a special treat, though we didn't buy much this year. Every day off was spent at the beach or trying to get there, and I developed a perfectly slack way of documenting these trips and reworking them at home - to be documented in an upcoming tape for the wonderful DRAFT label. Worked on my tan quite a bit, and the discovered that the best thing to do at the beach is to play catch in the water w/ a tennis ball.


Jules and I had the most amazing 4th of July partying at a Victorian mansion on a rock (named Clingstone) at the mouth of the Narragansett Bay - our landlords dad bought the place for $3000 in the 60's, oddly enough, and we lucked into one helluva trip, swimming off the dock to small little islands populated exclusively by cormorants and seagulls..


Oh, and KFW and I were able to extend our lunch-break record shopping due to the fantastic news that Stereo Jack's, in Cambridge, has had its lease extended! Although this year didn't bring the bumper crop of ESP vinyl or early electronic gems of 2010, we each pulled our fair share of burning wax from the frequently updated "this just in" shelves, notably - a huge collection of straight-ahead jazz and hard-bop that's had me spending many a nights revisiting Grant Green and Kenny Burrell albums on pristine Japanese vinyl pressings.

Jeez, what else - - poured too many beers for people I had to listen to ramble on about this or that, donated my beat-up car to NPR, oh and I definitely bought some records here and there... guess I should talk about that – some stand-outs would have to include the grip of new releases by Ghedalia Tazartès- I definitely bought them all, I must admit, and I do not have the buyers remorse, not one bit. I was also super-pumped about the new Frieder Butzmann LP on Pan, as well as new stuff from No Ufo's, Ed Yazijian, Part Wild Horses Mane on Both Sides, Hobo Sonn, Angst Hase Pfeffer Nase, Anthony Levin-Decanini, Tomutonttu, the weird proliferation of Hecker / Mark Fell-inspired wacko "computer" music, Loren Connors reissues on the Enabling Works label, reissues of the Brotzmann FMP records on Cien Fuegos, Pekka Airaksinen, a proper reissue of J.D. Emmanuel's late-night / early-morning slow-burner "Ancient Minimal Meditations", and Conrad Schnitzler's "Ballet Statique" - - Oohhh, and not to mention the fantastic Artur Zmijewski "Singing Lessons" on Tochnit Aleph, the triumphant return of Creel Pone ! (my personal faves being the Umberto Di Grazia, Giuseppe Morrocchi, and Tom Cameron's "Music To Wash Dishes By"), and some just-in-timers: Wolf Vostell "De/Collage Music" and all the long overdue re-stocking of some Edition RZ titles, including the fantastic new collection of Christian Wolff pieces, and the epic David Tudor 2xCD.


In terms of totally eye-opening records / non-new releases, the two top slots will have to go to Catherine Ribeiro+ Alpes "Ame Debout" (thank you Pete Swanson) and Hugh Davies "Shozyg" (KFW pulled this out of the MMS rubble and proceeded to melt my mind and single-handedly inspire me to record an album of guitar damage / investigation, now out on REL records as "Accidental Guitars").


Had a great time playing shows here and there - most notably on a short tour w/ P. Swanson and KFW up to Montreal, where we just zoned out to the Montreal vibe thanks to our host Jean-Sebastien, going record shopping and hunting for Quebecois micro-brews for three days of blissed-out vacation.

  • in your ears (7:33)

  • raga (8:10)
  • new space (7:40)

march 2010 release ; awesome record of shimmering, electronically modified solo guitar music from arco flute foundation & implodesken camden ...

the pulsing, gated rhythms do have a certain (k) / (c) luster that reminds me of achim reichel & / or steve hillage, but the sound-pallette is decidedly contemporary, with endless synchronized delays & comb filterings making the proceeding just so rich & dense ...

... one of the best things that kranky has put out over the past few years, one that seems to have been somewhat swept under the rug (i have the distinct feeling that ... if this exact same record had been released as a boutique, pricey euro-import - say on 8mm or ultra eczema - people would have been all over it) ; highly recommended !!!
kranky press release ::
artist: ken camden
title: lethargy & repercussion
catalog #: krank140
release date: march 29, 2010

ken camden plays guitar. while those four words might imply something extremely limiting, ken's playing and execution are anything but. his work seamlessly melds elements of modern composition, kosmische musik, eastern modal themes and academic electronic works; in other words, a good amount of the things we love here at kranky.

all of the pieces were recorded in real time with no overdubs, with the exception of jupiter which was designed and recorded as a duet for two guitars. while this process may not result in the technical perfection that many strive for, it leaves in the idiosyncrasies that give sound recordings their life and their soul, that make them unique to the individual and the moment. each final mix was chosen from multiple versions of each composition for the qualities inherent in the specific selected take.

what results are six intoxicating, structured atmospheres perfect for headphones and a deep recline into an enveloping chair.

rumpsti pumsti (edition) press release ::

carlfriedrich claus & hartmut geerken - einem luftigen akustischen kosmos entgegen

rumpsti pumsti (edition) nummer 12
edition of 300 copies

comes with 12-page booklet including a text by hartmut geerken (german only)

collaboration performance by these two infamous german visual artists & sound-poets, recorded at lyrik-kabinett münchen, june 1991. this is carlfriedrich claus' only sound-collaboration ever. both artists prepared a 60-minute backing-tape and wrote a detailed score for live-performed poetry and voice-operations. in addition to these fixed compositions they left room for spontaneous improvisation and the use of small cymbals ('tschinkas').

this is like nothing else. very serious, raw and quite unsettling.

between the early 1950s and his death in 1998, carlfriedrich claus (born 1930) produced a corpus of work that occupies terrain somewhere between philosophy, art, linguistics and acoustic literature. both visually with his language sheets and acoustically with his language operations, he plumbed and explored the depths of human consciousness, making a wholly individual contribution to the art of the 20th century in doing so. these sound processes and language operations have a consistency and radicalism unacknowledged hitherto.

hartmut geerken (born 1939) is an author, composer, musician, film-maker, performer, actor, mycologist, archivist, stager of exhibitions, publisher of numerous authors from the circle of literary expressionism and dada, lumberjack, and bumble-bee-keeper. as a percussionist, he has collaborated with a variety of free jazz musicians such as sun ra, john tchicai, sainkho namtchylak. as a poet, he is a practitioner of concrete poetry and organizes events such as the annual bielefeld new poetry colloquium. as an actor, he appeared in six films by herbert achternbusch and appeared in two of achternbusch's plays at the munich kammerspiele.

recorded at home in hubbard, or & in a hollywood studio, the four cuts on “magnified palettedeviate from the purely four/floor thump-outs of “we are 138bpm”, preferring a more variegated take on contemporary berlin’s many electronic music flavors (elements echo the hardwax-universe greatly, down to the grungey dub & lo-fi haze) while still nestling it’s aesthetic core in the whole “slowed & throwedpantheon of temporal transfiguration that anchors all of pat’s work under his myriad aliases ...

nna032: diamond catalog "magnified palette" lp

nna is proud to present the debut lp by diamond catalog, the new duo of lala conchita and "glamorous" pat maherr (indignant senility, expressway yo-yo dieting, and so on). this full-length is the definitive statement of diamond catalog's concoction of cross-bred dance music and mutated, swirling noise bricolage.

"magnified palette" seems to exist in five dimensions of sound, with factory-booming beats creating a mechanical-yet-organic framework for devious sonic chatter to wind its way through. imagine the sound of a distant rave in the midst of a disorienting drug spell, wading your way through the infinity of your mind's own dark matter.

kranky press release ::

artist: tim hecker
title: ravedeath, 1972
catalog #: krank154
release date: february 14, 2011

tim hecker's latest work approaches a form of secular musical transcendentalism from within the battered temple of spirituality. recorded in a church in reykjavik, iceland and using a pipe organ as the primary sound source, this new piece is essentially a live recording. in reality, it exists in a nether world between captured live performance and meticulous studio work, melding the two approaches to sonic artifice as a unity. it is in parts a document of air circulating within a wooden room, and also a pagan work of physical resonance within a space once reserved for the hallowed breath of the divine.

while the title of the piece "hatred of music" might be a clue, the album is also partly an attempt to confront a pervasive negativity surrounding music. historical rituals of destroying pianos, mountains of pirated cdrs pushed by bulldozers in eastern europe, or the melancholy of the digital music era began as sideline motifs which quickly informed the work on this record. they also really didn't at all.

despite that the context is wide open in such a form of musical abstraction, the substance of these immersive compositions showcases hecker's continued mastery of organizing sound into a visceral near entity. it is an almost physical presence that the listener feels as much as hears. this work is a significant contribution to hecker's oeuvre, one which spans over ten years of musical production. ravedeath is an enigmatic document of beauty and force.

the album was recorded mostly over the period of one day in july of 2010. iceland-based musician ben frost assisted with the engineering and performs on this recording.

rolf julius music for a distance

release date: february 22, 2011
catalog number : wv 83
format: cd
packaging: cardboard wallet

music for a distance is the second release in the small music series. the title of the work in relation to the cover images (abstract photographs of julius wife resembling landscapes merging into a distant horizon) suggests a work of uncommon poetic perception and inspiration. with the opening track "music for a distance," julius achieves a sensitive balance of unpredictability and deliberate design, at times resembling a symphony of insects, complete with crickets and cicadas and rustling leaves. listening closely, you can hear old fractured melodies float by only to be hidden again under a thunderous sky and rain.

music for a distance began as a 2003 live performance of musik für eine weite ebene (music for a wide plain) at the donaueschinger musiktage in germany. over the next 6 years julius continued to refine the piece in the studio, in addition to live performances of the piece in europe, asia, and north america.

the dense and nocturnal closing track, music in a corner was composed for an installation at moma ps1 in new york in 1983. though different in proportion and point of view, it nevertheless captures the stillness of the horizon that would inspire music for a distance many years later.

julius' pioneering work dike line (1979), was presented at the ground breaking collective exhibition “f r augen und ohren in 1980, together with works by john cage, nam june paik, joe jones, bill fontana, harry bertoia, and david tudor.

julius' works have since been shown in countless major exhibitions and important musuems around the world, such as new york's ps1 (1983), the 1985 paris biennial, documenta 8, kassel (1987), the hamburger banhof, berlin (1998), pittsburgh's mattress factory (2001), the centre pompidou, paris (2004), the two editions of sonambiente, berlin (in 1996 and 2006), museum bochum (2006), national museum for modern art, japan (2007), as well as in various galleries and non-profit spaces in berlin, paris, tokyo, bordeaux, san francisco, montpellier and barcelona.

• in 2005, in berlin, julius was awarded the prestigious hannah-höch-preis for an outstanding artistic life's work.

• a selection from julius music for the ears (wv75) was featured on the popular npr show radio lab.

nna039: nate young "stay asleep: regression vol. 2" lp

it's an honor for us to present the latest solo recording from nate young, founding member of michigan noise legends wolf eyes. this record represents a new direction for young, as he deviates from trademark aggressive murk-and-misery sounds of his previous works, and instead opts for a queasy, subdued zombie lullaby consisting of bizarre rhythms, synthetic melodies, and almost gamelan-sounding ritual sleepwalking. featuring an epic closer with contributions from past & present wolf eyes members aaron dilloway and john olson. this is a record to sit and get absorbed in, a non-linear travel through a different place altogether.

mastered by lupo at dubplates & mastering in berlin.
