cat. #: quecksilber 3
release date: 13.10.03
hikuioto, the debut cd of boris d hegenbart, ends with a leap. 500 copies in handmade paper-covers have spread out in ripples across the world. a frog leaps into a pond. what remains is digital silence.
[smip], years later, the reappearance on a marketplace, surrounded by chirping, squeaking sheet metal toys. an orchestra is tuning their instruments a japanese woman wishes they would never stop. the audio head descends onto the tape. hong kong roars and coos. a woman lets the pages of a book glide through her hands. 25 pastilles bang against each other.
[smip], the second solo cd of [#/tau], is a narration about encounters. recorded in cafes, back rooms, in attics and in streets. 13 miniatures, music in little boxes. places to keep minute objects in, crumpled up sketches, handsome things, space junk and the like. 13 encounters, 12 dialogues. everyday poetry, driven, harried and carried by electronic impulses and shimmering planes, anchored in grounding bass sounds, electrified by a whirring current. nothing much is happening ñ the air is tight.
[#/tau], founded in 1996 by berlin-based computer-sound-artist boris d hegenbart, is a project, which from its very beginnings strove to combine electronics with human sounds. initially hailing from dub music, hegenbart is now better known for his filigree sound-poetry. the sound material used is comprised of cut-ups, field-recordings, purely synthetically generated waves, 9 khz atmosphere... live, [#/tau] improvises solo pieces and interacts with instrumentalists.
co-operations: werner dafeldecker, dean roberts, ulrich krieger, reinhold friedl, felix kubin, john butcher, zeitkratzer...
the artwork for this release was created by yumiko pw. yumiko pw is an artist for drawing mainly. yumiko pw from tokyo talked about her work:"a pen is most suitable for me, my speed and rhythm to let my finger express the things coming from the place where i don't really know. i love art which is not really explained by words but just touch you strongly with no reason.
and something you can find the meaning by yourself ... something which let your imagination works. so i don't want to present a clear message or story in my drawings. less hint, and less explanation."
