Catherine Christer Hennix | Selected Early Keyboard Works
Empty Editions/Blank Forms (2xLP/DL)

I’m always thrilled when I have the opportunity, amidst so much new talent that I’m exposed to regularly, to discover an artist’s work, an experienced septuagenarian, for the very first time. Four of Swedish composer (and Renaissance woman) Catherine Christer Hennix‘s works are nicely showcased in this co-released collection (a volume of writings is forthcoming via Blank Forms) of Selected Early Keyboard Works.

I find it quite interesting when unknown creatives who have been better known as scientists, visual artists, mathematicians and philosophers (like Hennix) are brought into the light of public consciousness, especially when they have worked on their craft for four plus decades with little recognition. This is all so much more satisfying (to these ears) when the focus is on the minimal. As a youth Hennix also worked at Stockholm’s…

Reblog – Hidden Gems: People Like Us, “Lowest Common Denominator” — Bandcamp Daily

Quote

Great series Hidden Gems and this is a real gem, especially when you realise how it was created..

 First released in 1994, deleted for around 20 years now! It had uninspiring track titles but that’s what it was like in 1994. All composed pre-multitrack era – on an Amiga 500 computer tracker program with an 8-bit sampler (Technosound Turbo – cost 28 pounds!) and a bunch of willing friends. Original cover is a 12 inch square paper collage.”

 

A sound collage work that will warp all perceptions of reality.

Reblog – The Space Lady – greatest hits

You can never have enough of The Space Lady : )

 

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: The Space Lady
Title: greatest hits
Keywords: pop, electronic, synthesizer

I know… I know.. and I’m even fully aware of already having discussed this lovely album over here, but sometimes it’s nice to have it ripen in the back of my head and return to it like a fine wine that has stood through the seasons to make all the flavors pop out for the best. When I first heard it I was just fully flabbergasted and surprised about its discovery through a good friend (graham Boosey) who had seen this lady perform in concert. I was fully blown away by just hearing this album so imagine how blown away his enthusiasm was, but now with the time passing gracefully and the music flourishing like a flower over time in my own memory storage system, I thought reviewing it for a second time was a nice little thing to…

Hello Christina, where are you these days and what have you been up to this past weekend? I was near Brussels visiting a friend this past weekend and we went to a Neolithic grave in a forest. I must admit, back when you released No. 1 on Kranky I had a feeling that there would […]

“Components of local experimental beats and a wide gamut of electronic music draw from Taiwan’s irregular view / architectures and buildings, muggy, emissions-filled air, and hectic streetscapes, while Mandarin Chinese and Japanese influences marry intricate beats and whispering lyrics. All these tiny elements serve as pondering-points on the darkness that underpins the most intense emotions of the city’s aggregations.”

Reblog – Lunisolar by Mayuko Hino

There’s so much going on , too much for one person to keep up so looking through the Toneshift site I stumbled on this gem. Better late than never : )

The Future of Music Today

a3371128280_10

From UK-based Cold Spring Records comes the new release by Mayuko Hino (from the band CCCC) titled Lunisolar. It’s two lengthy tracks starting with the crusty drone vs. monastery bells on Fantainhead. It’s like an open circuit mixed with heavy rough winds, a low-fi reverberating buzz and a centering tone of a gong-like bell. 日野繭子 makes no bones about her wide-ranging noisician flexability here, nor her honored place in the contemporary Japanoise scene. After all, she’s been actively at it since the early 90s, even though this is only her second solo record. Unlike a bevy of artists who just make ear-splitting sonic somersaults, Hino’s sound is more impressionistic and staggered in its delivery, incorporating a yin/yang of the industrial and environmental.

The severe blast of wired drones sound like a giant firehose battling a blaze in the final minutes of track one. The half-stops and firestarts are…
