Ciné-Concert | Periscope | Lyon | Friday 10th February

This Friday, Lyon based event organiser and record label Less is Techno and Le Périscope invite us to a new experience in music,  sounds and visuals with live performances, DJ sets and an odd and old film remake.Less is Techno et Le Périscope vous invite à ressentir la musique et la vidéo le temps d’une soirée. La salle totalement redécorée pour faciliter l’écoute, un ciné-concert suivi d’un live et d’un dj set vous seront présentés.

Ciné-concert: Le Golem de Paul Wegener et Carl Boese
Film fantastique de 1920, L’histoire se déroule à Prague, au XVIe siècle. Un rabbin crée le Golem, une créature géante faite d’argile. Utilisant la sorcellerie pour lui donner vie, il espère pouvoir protéger les juifs d’une menace imminente. Ensemble sur scène, le réalisateur et le musicien réadaptent ce classique du cinéma expressionniste allemand. Ils proposent une création originale, entre remontage, colorisation des images et improvisation d’une bande sonore électronique/expérimentale.

PHARMAKUSTIK | Pulse Lavage (No.)

PHARMAKUSTIK | Pulse Lavage (No.)

Pharmakustik, who previously graced the No. catalog in collaboration with Chile’s Raw C, presents his debut full length album in the guise of ‘Pulsed Lavage’ which, according to the artist himself, is an audiosurgical album. In its original medical context, the term means ‘removal of necrotic tissues in wounds by pressurized hydrosolutions’.

As an album, Pulsed Lavage expertly manouvres the multilple stylistic themes within, from opiate induced narcotic bliss through to hammer & nails Tanzfloor techno. The album is as raw as it is beautiful, zig zagging between moods almost like the automated surgical tools of its namesake.

MULTICAST DYNAMICS | Continental Ruins (Denovali Records)

MULTICAST DYNAMICS | Continental Ruins (Denovali Records)

Following on from 2014-2016’s praised album quadrilogy, Multicast Dynamics releases his new Continental Ruins LP on Denovali Records. Inspired by decayed infrastructure, Samuel Van Dijk reveals his sound documentary about sunken cities and continents. A study on storytelling with sound, where electronic music acts as a verb, moved by images and narratives.

Continental Ruins LP is a journey through washed out, blurred particles, gliding across the ungraspable seafog of the atlantic, transforming the visible into sound. The murky and desolated atmosphere throughout the tracks reflects an forgotten utopia of places that were once populated. Unfolding fallen structures, immersing into the elusive, submerged land, searching for signs of life in the lost memories of faded civilizations, Multicast Dynamics explores ultrasonic underwater communication, decodes messages and browses through the archive of the past.

TELEFON TEL AVIV | Fahrenheit Fair Enough (Limited Edition)

The late 1990s was a fertile time in the American electronic underground. A growing body of artists, spread around the nation, were engaging in the latest round of a decades-long transatlantic musical conversation. At the convergence of hip-hop, electronic, and soul music, these artists sought to carve out their own lane. In September 2001, New Orleans’ Telefon Tel Aviv, high school friends Joshua Eustis and the late Charles Cooper, joined the conversation with their debut album, Fahrenheit Fair Enough, released by Hefty Records. A labour of love, Fahrenheit was an attempt by the pair “to contribute something meaningful” Eustis says today, “something definitely American, and kinda southern too.” On the fifteenth anniversary of its release, Ghostly International is reissuing Fahrenheit Fair Enough with a vinyl edition and bonus digital material.

Living in New Orleans in the late 1990s, Eustis and Cooper were in the thrall of two musical orbits: black America – New Orleans’ bounce, Detroit’s techno, Chicago’s house – and British electronica – Autechre, Aphex Twin, Jega. Recorded over the course of a year in Eustis’ childhood bedroom in the Riverbend neighborhood of New Orleans, Fahrenheit mapped out a potential for American electronic music in a time of hope. The music features delicate Rhodes and guitar instrumentation wrapped in a southern bounce shell, smothered in r&b, and cut up by digital rhythm programming. The tracks were meant to be “constantly, evolving sculptures.” Fascinated by IDM, the pair sought to inject “some swagger into it, loosen it up a little but also make it hyper romantic.

SUN RA | The Definitive 45’s Collection 1952–1991

Strut present a new definitive collection of singles released by jazz maverick Sun Ra during his Earth years, spanning 1952 to 1991. Released prolifically during the 1950s and more sporadically thereafter, primarily on the Saturn label, the 45s offer one-off meteorites from Ra’s prolific cosmic journey, tracing the development of his forward-thinking “Space-Bop” and his unique take on jazz and blues traditions which sounded unlike anything else from the period. As with his LPs, most 45s were only pressed in small runs and were sold at gigs and have since become extremely rare and sought after. Some have only been discovered in physical form in recent years; some were planned and pencilled but allegedly never made it to vinyl and some appeared as one-off magazine singles and posthumous releases.

Singles’ will be released in various formats across two release dates. All formats feature fully remastered tracks, rare photos, poster artwork, extensive sleeve notes by Francis Gooding, an interview with Saturn Records founder Alton Abraham by John Corbett and detailed track by track and session notes by Paul Griffiths. The 45s box sets each feature a hardboard flip top box containing 10 x 45s in their original artwork along with a bound 28pp booklet.

DUBSUIT | Eigenleben (Ornaments)

Eigenleben” was written and produced by Holger Flinsch & Martin Müller from March ’05 till June ’06 in Hochtaunus, Ohmgebirge and Humboldthain. After 10 years it is the first time available as limited clear marbled 180g vinyl,recycled grey sleeve.

Creating something selfexistent might be the most difficult part of doing arts – something that isn’t just a rigid thing but an entity of itself. Our goal is to bear something upon our technical possibilities without involving any other entity’s energy.

Our selfexistent entity should be made up of dead matter and brought to life by technical components which interact with their surrounding and make decisions based on observations which are being analyzed and torn through programs to calculate potential procedures. It should not be limited to its current level of experience. To remain state-of-the-art, apprehension and intelligence are indispensable capabilities our entity should be able to make use of.
