Bionulor, "Stary Pisarz"

E-mail Print PDF

cover imageContinuing his concept of "sound recycling", Sebastian Banaszczyk’s latest work is the studio recording of a piece first performed in 2014.  As part of the Festiwal Dekonstrukcji Slowa in Poland, he performed this work (translated as "The Old Writer") as a tribute to William S. Burroughs on his 100th birthday.  Consistent with his work to this point, it is a brilliant deconstruction of sounds that bear little resemblance to their source, but perhaps what is most surprising is the amount of conventional music he chose to employ, giving an added layer of depth to an already complex record.


Coil, "The New Backwards" reissue

E-mail Print PDF

2016 version. Pressed using the original New Backwards plates approved by Peter Christopherson.

Scheduled to ready in July.

The New Backwards, created in 2007, was originally included in the Ape Of Naples box set released on Important in 2008 and was constructed by Peter Christopherson using material from the Backwards sessions, recorded in the early 90's for a planned release on Trent Reznor's Nothing Records label. The New Backwards, like Ape Of Naples, is an intense fan favorite and an essential part of of the Coil catalog.

Legendary percussionist and friend Z'EV was seriously injured on March 14th when an Amtrak train he was on derailed.  Due to his pre-existing health conditions, the additional trauma from the accident has left him in an intensive care unit and he has yet to regain consciousness.  With his family unavailable, a Gofundme page has been set up to help his close friend Barbara Barg to visit and watch over him while he is in the hospital, with the remainder of the donations going to help with his medical bills.

Rhys Chatham, "Pythagorean Dream"

E-mail Print PDF

cover imageTo his everlasting credit, Rhys Chatham has remained a restlessly evolving and adventurous composer well into his 60s, as well as quite an endearing perverse and unpredictable one.  Case in point: roughly a decade after composing his monumental A Crimson Grail for 400 guitars, Chatham is now is now experimenting with ways to perform his harmonically complex compositions all by himself in real-time.  Also, he has picked up the flute again (his original instrument, which was summarily abandoned for electric guitars after Chatham first experienced the Ramones).  As if that were not enough divergence from the norm, Chatham also employs a special Pythagorean/just-intonation tuning system for his guitar.  Despite all of those innovations, Pythagorean Dream is first and foremost an impressive performance rather than a bold new artistic statement.  I suppose that makes it a fairly minor release within Chatham’s oft-influential and frequently large-scale oeuvre, but it is still surprisingly effective for a one-man guitar/trumpet/flute tour de force and certainly sounds like absolutely no one else.
