jason lescalleet / due process “combine xxi, xxii” ten inch single record
- combine xxi (10:15)
- combine xxii (10:20)
|late july 2007 release; the follow-up to the “combines xix xx” lp (also on we break more records) by jason lescalleet’s due process... comes complete as a 10” record inside a yellow/orange “78 sleeve”, inside a letter-pressed 10’ x 20” wraparound sleeve; deluxe.|
... but enough about the object; let’s talk about the music... for the “combines” series, jason has been using extant/archival recordings of his due process duo with rrron “emil beaulieau” lessard as source material, building densely layered collages of plundered musique concrète, found sounds, and of course jason’s own in-situ magnetic tape-looping... in this case the source material is a recording of due process’ set opening for amm in boston on october 14th, 2000.
an amazing blast of plundered droning & more rampant string-destruction (listen to the sound-sample) - one of jason’s best outings. highly recommended !!!

|jason lescalleet’s due process – combine xxi/xxii 10” vinyl record|
cat. # we10-005
now available: july 2007
combine xxi, combine xxii is the second vinyl album documenting the ongoing collaboration between tape loop composer/destroyer jason lescalleet and ron lessard, aka noise legend emil beaulieau and head of the pioneering rrrecords label. while due process has been lessard’s longtime umbrella for collaborations (which previously have featured like-minded outsiders tom dimuzio and john wiggins), this current iteration of due process is an altogether different beast. using severely manipulated recordings of the duo’s ear-splitting live concerts, lescalleet creates a dense sound world, abstract and visceral. consisting of two sidelong pieces, by turns both brutal and beautiful, this latest record is a testament to lescalleet’s ability to recast rough sounds in his blurry, tape-distorted image.
lavishly printed on heavyweight lennox paper and lovingly letter-pressed by smudge ink in boston, this 10” record is limited to 300 copies.
