vangelis :: blade runner | audiofidelity

180+ virgin vinyl new age soundtrack (afzlp 154)

mastered by kevin gray at cohearent audio
 
"...one of the most memorable and important soundtracks in movie history."

the blade runner soundtrack was composed by vangelis for ridley scott's 1982 film considered one of the finest sci-fi movies ever made. it is mostly a dark, melodic combination of classical compositions and synthesizers which mirrors the futuristic film noir envisioned by scott. the soundtrack holds legendary status and at the time was well-received by fans and critics including best original score nominations for a bafta and golden globe yet, except for a few cuts, it was not released until 1994.

the movie remains a classic film with a long list of popular movie stars including harrison ford, daryl hannah, rutger hauer, sean young, and edward james olmos most of whom appear on this record in movie dialog samples mixed into the 12 tracks of nearly one hour of music. vangelis makes each track flow into one another. the soundtrack features vocal contributions from demis roussos and the sax solo by dick morrissey on "love theme." the gatefold jacket includes many colorful stills from the film. blade runner is a timeless classic on film and now on 180g transparent red vinyl.

“the music is beautiful, poignant, exciting and mysterious.”

bronze teetho. unilateralis” twelve inch single record

  • tapeworm

  • acetone
  • glass tooth
... this single is one hot, noisy mess from one of the dudes from factory floor (who knew) ; kudos ...
diagonal press release ::
diag010bronze teetho. unilateralis

london label diagonal continue their swerve into caustic dancefloor territory with the debut of the first of two 12" releases from bronze teeth. their extended technoid grooves perfectly match the project's name -- they're tough, hard-edged and intricately sculpted for tensile strength and visceral impact. traces of the sounds that feed into bronze teeth can be heard in the duo's individual projects.

dominic butler is one-third of factory floor, the london-based trio renowned for their wiry, dynamic live shows; his modular electronics are an integral component in that band's devastating cocktails of morse code electronic blips, drum and guitar. richard smith meanwhile, records as l/f/d/m, and debuted with a scintillating clutch of acid tracks on optimo music in 2013. bronze teeth offers them free rein to explore their own interests in sound, and in particular the potential for chaotic interaction between metallic programmed rhythms and the fleshy pulses of the human body.

on o. unilateralis, sprawling opener "tapeworm" and the glassy club noise of "acetone" and 'glass tooth', they appear to be skirting along the edge of control, with their machines wrestling dominance back from their users and sending sparks ricocheting through the mix. for all its monochrome battery, this isn't lo-fi music, nor is it retrogressive. the ghosts of acid house and skull-shredding free party techno lurk in this machine, but they're refracted through a modernist sensibility and a keen ear for sound sculpture: edifices honed from diamond-hard tones and reinforced glass, all wrung from a sprawl of patched-together gear.

powellclub music” twelve inch single record

  • so we went electric

  • no u turn
  • maniac (feat. russell haswell)
diagonal press release ::
powell returns to his own diagonal imprint with a three-headed monster of a 12", his first on the label since 2012's body music.

"so we went electric" sparks like a cable gone haywire, spitting arcs of raw blue energy through the mix amid spidery, distorted guitars and moaned vocals. "no u turn" is bone-dry yet hot-blooded funk, its drums and bass strutting back and forth in an overdriven frenzy. and "maniac," which features russell haswell ringing the life out of a devil fish tb-303, rounds this 12" off at its murkiest and most grimey, flipping the atmosphere of an almighty onstage punk band strop into contorted, fucked-up basement acid.

sub rosa press release ::
angus maclise, age 27, new york, november 1965, leaves the velvet underground for far-away lands. released in our early electronic serie. drone-based experiments (notably with tony conrad, extremely present on the album, and john cale), and purely electronic compositions - a path (almost) nobody knew maclise had explored. miraculously salvaged by gerald malanga, these archives provided a new perspective on the artist's whole body of work and expanded considerably his artistic palette. and so we are now able to draw a whole record's worth from maclise's early electronic music.

angus maclise, born, march 4,1938 in bridgeport, connecticut, was a percussionist composer, poet, and calligrapher. he was a member of la monte young's theater of eternal music, with john cale, tony conrad, marian zazeela and sometimes terry riley. he contributed to the early fluxus newspaper v tre, edited by george brecht and george maciunas, and was also an early member of the velvet underground, having been brought into the group by flatmate john cale when they were living at 56 ludlow street in manhattan. maclise played bongos and hand drums during 1965 with the first incarnation of the velvet underground. although the band regularly extemporised soundtracks to underground films during this era (the invasion of thunderbolt pagoda by ira cohen, chumlum by ron rice?), maclise never officially recorded with them.

later in the 1960s, angus and his wife hetty traveled around between vancouver, paris, greece and india, finally settling in nepal. they also had a son, ossian kennard maclise, who was recognized by rangjung rigpe dorje, the 16th karmapa, as a reincarnation of a tibetan saint, or tulku, and at age four became a buddhist monk. maclise died of hypoglycemia and pulmonary tuberculosis in kathmandu in 1979, aged 41. he recorded a vast amount of music that went largely unreleased until 1999. these recordings, produced between the mid-'60s and the late-'70s, consist of tribal trance workouts, spoken word, poetry, drones and electronics, as well as many collaborations with his wife hetty. in 2008, hetty maclise bequeathed a collection of her husband's tapes to the yale collection of american literature.

snd press release ::
mark fell and mat steel formed snd in sheffield in 1998. tplay was their first self-released ep, produced in a limited run and housed in a sleeve adorned with nothing but a stamped phone number on the back. snd's palette and minimalist aesthetic more or less fell in line with the emergent school of producers that would eventually find themselves as labelmates on the mille plateaux label and the monolithic raster noton (ikeda, pan sonic, alva noto, bretschneider) -- but as opposed to the intricacies and overly-academic strictures that would occupy so many of their contemporaries over the following decade, in hindsight it's easy to identify how snd uniquely managed to re-code the swing and shuffle of uk garage and two-step within a new minimalist paradigm.

although producers such as g-man, sterac, jeff mills and robert hood had been stripping bare techno templates since the early '90s, it wasn't until later in the decade that the dots were joined between movements in techno and experimental electronic music. this was mostly a serious and contemplative movement, typified by the fetishisation of abstract forms on the one hand, and rigid, teutonic movement on the other. but with the release of tplay snd had created a sound that was unlike anything else made at the time. although they were guided by minimalist principles, their productions were also driven by the momentum of a much more colorful type of urban music. simply put -- there was no one else bridging gaps between the austere functions of european electronic music and london's emergent two-step sound. truth is -- if you bought ryoji ikeda albums you were unlikely to have thought much of artful dodger -- and yet snd made music that drew influence and parallels from both.

listening over 15 years later, it's startling just how fresh and forward these productions sound, now bolstered by over 30 minutes of previously unheard recordings taken from the same sessions. at a time when some corners of club music are arguably more accepting of strange and challenging production styles than ever before, it's incredible just how unique and inimitable snd's sound still is, taking us full circle to current producers like visionist, mumdance and rabit, who look to challenge dancefloor conventions by using the same principle of reduction and innovation without neglecting the dance. fully remastered from dat tapes by rashad becker at d&m.

originally released on cd in 1994 and reissued in 2006, this is the first time arthur russell’s another thought has been released on vinyl. it is also the first release on arc light editions, a label curated by jennifer lucy allan in collaboration with multiverse music.

"the poet’s tongue"
(cat no. plana-c 24vocsona086)
lp record
edition limited to 270 copies

ulises carrión's audio works clearly reflect his passion for language, its structures, sounds and meanings. he greatly enjoyed grammatically dissecting languages and trying to understand and explore their structures. his many initiatives and projects bear witness to his boundless obsessions with communication and circulation of works and ideas as a cultural strategy.

this lp includes hamlet for two voices (1977) in which two voices read out the names of the characters in the shakespearean play as they appear in the script, audibly representing the structure of the roles the characters perform. poema (1977) orally represents the structure and spatial characteristics of a poem, by listing all its structural elements: words, paragraphs and verses, etc. the lp also includes aritmetica, three spanish pieces, first spanish lesson as well as the legendary 45 revoluciones por minuto, the grooviest track ever created within the context of conceptual art.

all pieces, recorded at the instituut voor sonologie in utrecht between september and october 1977, have in common their refusal of discursiveness. they are not meant to be true or beautiful. each piece is a series of vocal units that unfolds according to simple rules. their beginning and end are arbitrary – they could go on infinitely.

they should go on.
they go on.

first lp ever issued by ulises carrion who in 1975 created the legendary bookshop-gallery other books & so, the first space dedicated exclusively to artists’ publications such as artists’ records, books, magazines, postcards.

"poème-partition x"
(cat no. plana-h 1vocson074)
book + cd

edition of 350 numbered copies

"poème-partition x" was created by bernard heidsieck during 1960 and recorded in october the same year. a few excerpts of the 1st and 4th movements were performed on november 22nd, 1960 at the quatre saisons gallery in paris, during the festival of avant-garde art. "poème-partition x" might be considered heidsieck's first major work, whose duration (more than 40 minutes long) never allowed the author to give a public reading of it. its destination was a record (released by alga marghen in 1996, starting the vocson lp series, 36 years after its creation)!

alga marghen is proud to now present this new edition of "poème-partition x", extended to the cd format and included in a luxury 96 pages hardbound book, limited to 350 numbered copies. the book reproduces for the first time the complete score, a visual wonder and a major experimental printed work. bernard heidsieck memories of an historic lecture at the jean tinguely atelier is included as an introduction, as well as his testimony on ian sommerville and brion gysin's "dream machine". also on the cd is a lecture of extracts of "poème-partition x" accompanied by the saxophone of the american painter larry rivers. this recording from 1962 was not included in the lp edition and is here presented for the first time.

in august 1962, bernard heidsieck went with john ashberry, the american poet, to dinner at the studio of jean tinguely and niky de saint phalle. larry rivers had a studio in the same place and was also there. tinguely prepared grilled meat, skewered on one of his rotating sculptures. after dinner rivers returned to his studio and began to play, alone and for himself. he earned his living, at the time, by playing sax at an after-hours jazz club. so, while he was playing bernard heidsieck joined him in his studio and suggested that they do an improvisation together. something that heidsieck had never done before, and have never done since! larry rivers immediately accepted, and an appointment was set up at heidsieck home, for a few days later. august 6th, 1962. a dinner party was organised for the same guests who had been at tinguely's place and this unique 17 minutes improvisation was recorded, but untill now never released. it was, however, presented at the first fylkingen text-sound composition festival in stockholm in 1968.

"oeuvre desintegrale"
(cat no. plana-d 19vocson070)
4lp boxset

edition of 345 copies

alga marghen presents one of the most impressive sound poetry anthologies ever published, introducing you to the sound works of the nouveau realiste artist francois dufrene. his work, along with that of gil j wolman and brion gysin, was a strong influence for experimental poets like henri chopin, bernard heidsieck and ake hodell.

françois dufrene could be considered the younger of the first generation sound poets. already in the lettrist group when he was only 16 years old, with his own style marked by an hyper-powerful voice. in 1953, at the age of 23, he became ultra-lettrist, starting his first crirhythms by overpassing the alphabet in the perspective of the physical improvised scream. with the crirhythms sound poetry enters for the first time in the factory of projective sounds. in the beginning dufrene uses the tape recorder only to document his creations. these recordings show him that through the tape machine his poems could reached deeper and wider creative dynamics. since the mid-1950s the tape-machine becomes for him a poetical and experimental tool and dufrene fully develops its potentials with stereophonic recordings as well as with the superimposition of his crirhythms. the loudspeakers amplifies sounds while the microphone captures even the most detailed concrete sound produced by his voice. the physical tempest he produces is a real concrete electronic sound attack. dufrene produced primitive, brutal poems opening the path of vocal sounds to contemporary composers: it's known that pierre henry was deeply inspired by dufrene. the anthology presented here includes 10 crirhythms from different periods dating from 1965 to 1976.

also included is "osmose-art", a long piece from 1969 divided in two suites where dufrene superimposes his crirhythms to classical music. a similar technique was applied a few years earlier adding jazz music (specially drum and percussion pieces) to poems marked by strong lettristic esthetic. two of those "lecture-collage" dating from 1965 are presented here, as well as two "comptinuum" from his early on-progress works started in 1958.

françois dufrene also developed unique performances, with live reading of his written text. the most famous is tombeau de pierre larousse, published in 1958. this is a work half way between the written text and the sound poem whose unity is achieved through dufrene performing it. it's a masterpiece of synthesis of active poetry. "eryximaque, suite choreographique au tombeau pierre larusse" is also included in this anthology.

apart from the crirythmes that henri chopin issued on his revue ou disc magazine (the complete ou anthology is available from alga marghen as a 4cd set) and a few short pieces issued on obscure sound poetry anthologies in the end of the 1960's, françois dufrene work is practically unavailable. this 4lp anthology, conceived by the same author and privately issued as a 3 cassette edition in the mid-1970s, includes only previously unpublished sound works that finally fully documents the creativity of such a radical artist.

(cat no. plana-l 18vocson065).
lp record

edition of 385 copies

alga marghen proudly presents an lp edition including two experimental sound works by gherasim luca, created in close connection to sten hanson who invited the rumenian artist at fylkingen in the very beginning of the 1970s and made him discover the possibilities of the advanced ems electronic music studio of stockholm. the two recordings presented here are quite unique as they are the only poems by gherasim luca created through the use of electronic manipulations.

as henri chopin wrote some years later in his legendary "poésie sonore internationale" book, ghérasim luca made a big impression at the third stockholm festival in 1970. luca was born in bucarest in 1913. before leaving to israel he had a leading role among the roumanian surrealist group. he eventually moved to paris where he lived untill the end of his life in 1992. gherasim  luca work is very personal, giving his poems a very uncommon and ironic character. again henri chopin underlines that  "in his recordings, which are not many, he superimposes his very warm voice, marked by his roumanian accent; it's a sound wonder. in fact luca is not a sound poet. he is more a speaker who managed, without complex, to enter into the fylkingen studio vortex. on 4 tracks and with 32 loudspeakers, thanks to his superb voice and his instinctive knowledge of the electronic studio which amplifies words, he gives great pleasure to the listener, even if the latter can not understand french".

autres secrets du vide et du plein (april 1971) and crimes sens initiales (april 1972) were both recorded one track at the time on a 4 track tape and afterwards subjected to electronic treatments. they were recorded in sweden at ems and first performed at the 1971 and 1972 text-sound festivals of stockholm.

edition limited to 385 copies, also including the reproduction of a worderful drawing by gherasim luca on the front cover, a photo portrait of the author by gilles ehrmann from 1959 and an essay by henri chopin.

dr. hoffman / les baxter / ravel - first electronic chillout music
bs011

the lp contains "music out of the moon" and "perfume set to music" one of the first electonic chillout music composed, originally released in 1947 and 1948 on 10" 78rpm. an unusual mix of different styles and musics, these two records were unique collaborations between three disparate talents, who envisioned a world of sound inspired by science fiction, exotica music, and meditations. without them the theremin could perhaps never have been considered in a pop context. the influence of this music is clear in the multiform artist sun ra who covered the song "possession" in his second lp "jazz by sun ra".

digitally remastered and limited to 300 copies..

ariel kalma - osmose
bs007

an amazing krautrock / nature hybrid masterwork. warm washes of synthesizer, tribal war drums and drones galore all mixed with the sounds of the rainforest, crickets, frogs, even flies - osmose was originally released in 1978 and found minimalist composer ariel kalma using all manner of keyboards, saxophone, harmonium, delays, effects, even circular breathing, to compose gorgeously minimal, softly spacey slow drifting ambient soundscapes, which were then mixed with the sounds of the rainforest (recorded by richard tinti).

it's a single lp reissue of the double album of 1978

ninos du brasil - novos mistérios - lp

ninos du brasil is the italian battery of nicolò fortuni and nico vascellari. novos mistérios follows their debut lp for la tempesta international/tannen records with an acutely stripped down blend of mostly “live” recorded percussion and explorative electronic sound design.

the project, and album, is a radical inversion and consolidation of the duo’s respective backgrounds in performance art, punk bands inspired by the febrile humidity and sensory overload of brasilian carnival music, they temper layeres of roiling, propulsive percussion with electronic drones, effects and tribalist vocals to militant, hypnotic effect.

six tracks charge between technoid polymetrics, kinky minimalism and meditative ritual with particular focus on rhythmelodic cadence and carefully constructed atmospheres of festive evil.

prurient - cocaine death - 12"

first time on vinyl and remastered by matt colton with minimal black and white cover with foil block print. violent and desperate electronic noise in the tradition of anna nicole. sm electronics.

cocaine death is a compilation of three of prurient's most sought-after cassette releases: 2007's' cocaine death, caribbean overdose and tylenol murders, eventually compiled as cocaine death for a cd release in 2008. this is the first time this collection has ever been available on vinyl, now fully remastered for the format. cocaine death brings together several strands and signifiers from the prurient catalog, containing some of its most visceral and experimental works, alongside some of its most evocative. from the arpeggiated/submerged noise of opener "pretext (bahamian burial)" to the padded, pulsating closer "postscript (coke cunts)" the material here explores the relationship between futile pleasure, substance and escape; escape being a myth. cocaine death (originally c-10 packaged in an envelope, limited to 46 copies) is one of the most sought-after prurient cassettes. the content is based on the glamour and destruction of toxic nightlife. caribbean overdose (originally a c-10, packaged in a standard shell package and limited to 100 copies) explores a different but strangely direct topic of the sexual reproductive life of plants. further examination into the life of scientific advancement and education. tylenol murders (originally a c-10, packaged in an oversized envelope and limited to 10 copies) takes the sounds and concepts of the aforementioned releases and expands the sounds to further limits of cracked static, strained vocals and strange melodic loops.

hospital productions press release ::
there's so much that could be said about ron morelli, his l.i.e.s. label, or the fact that his debut album comes to you via hospital productions, but instead, here are some words from the man himself.

“i'm a regular guy, enjoy a good steak, drinking beer, and occasionally a game of pro basketball, republican talk radio... you know... all the good stuff. the music on this record is about immediacy, pressure, monotony, and stress. a great deal of the feelings conveyed within come from the fear and repulsion of basic human interaction, like if someone sitting behind you on the plane sneezes on you or being forced to shake the clammy hand of a stranger and the intimate paranoia of the mind and dealing with it or not.

not to make some deep intellectual fuck show of this, as it is not, it's just stress music jammed out quick and recorded. last year, i was staying in an area where all the hookers did their work. all they would do is smoke cigarettes, read the paper, talk on their cell phones, and spit. they would spit a lot. i would step in that hooker spit on the way home, often tracking it into the apartment building as i entered. this is where the title of the record comes from.”


the album features eight electronic variants; from house and industrial tape experiments to saturated metallic beat tracks. mastered and cut by matt colton at alchemy.

ron morelli - backpages - ep

the l.i.e.s. kingpin returns with a 30 minute warehouse-bound ep followup to his ‘spit’ album
3 new tracks plus an extended 9 minute version of ‘crack microbes’
mastered and cut by matt colton at alchemy

ron morelli returns to stare down the ‘floor with four pieces written during the stress-busting sessions for ‘spit’.
the muggy, droning welt of ‘public consumption’ kicks off with the sound of new york techno shot from the hip, while ‘another hit’ vents a vintage era-regis style built on skull-chipping snares and effluent acid modulation.
the album
s writhing batacuda banger, ‘crack microbes’ reappears here as an extra-ferric extended version, sustaining the hypnotic intensity for nine minutes of panic attack acid and febrile cowbells, while ‘’rushing again’ escorts us to a close with triplet techno shook down by railgun snares and a grotty synthline.

vatican shadow - remember your black day - lp

'militant religious industrial'

remember your black day is the debut album proper from vatican shadow, the first material conceived and produced as a full-length by dominick fernow for the project following almost a dozen tapes (mostly released on hospital productions) and vinyl editions (released by the likes of blackest ever black, modern love, and type) over the last three years. none of the eight tracks included have been released before on any other format. at a time when the scene is saturated with "noise techno," the album is almost celebratory by contrast, balancing caustic licks of distortion and oppressive bass with cleanly mixed synth tones and ricocheting claps in a shell-shocked, surreal soundsphere. with production assistance from juan mendez (silent servant), the album includes the most direct and propulsive vatican shadow material yet, continuing an evolutionary shift away from the complex, collage-based narrative of those cassette releases into more visibly direct contact with the listener. there is a functional connection to dance music here, honing in on the human element embedded within a subject matter so fraught with inhumanity.

rainforest spiritual enslavement - folklore venom - lp

now compiled onto one lp. the mantis leaps out of the mist along a the rocks up to the eyes of the mountain spirit. ghostly collages mix with sub bass rhythms. yellow herb ambient.

now available on vinyl for the first time, following on from an excellent lp for blackest ever black and a 12" for bed of nails. the project has become one of dominick fernow's most intriguing, offering an artificial, unnerving take on both ambient and more propulsive electronic music, in turns reminding us of everything from aphex twin's selected ambient works vol. ii to john carpenter, vangelis' blade runner soundtrack, leyland kirby, classic chain reaction, demdike stare and, of course, fernow's own myriad productions under various aliases (prurient, vatican shadow, etc.). for the most part, the project has been an experiment in tonal dread and dankest atmospheres, but on folklore venom rhythms play a more prominent role, pacing anxiously below the dense murk of "upside down left eye," or as a stodgy techno bedrock to the inclement conditions of "the spirit wore the shoes of the boy," or a sputtering, diesel-powered chug to the noxious vibes of "black magic originated in nature." factor the petrifying gloom of "spirit companion sick-bed" and the unheimlich, exotic sonic ciphers of "malaysia yellow herbs," and you have one of the strongest releases on hospital productions yet.
