GO EASY ON THE NOISE GUYS

history mayne, Monday, 31 January 2011 17:27 (3 years ago) Permalink

from a Sufjan Stevens interview on Pfork (note the last paragraph; the rest is here for context):

Pitchfork: Do you think we'll have to wait as long for another album from you next time?

SS: No, I'm not going to do that anymore. I want to start releasing a lot more and do it without the orthodoxy of a proper release. I want to do more download EPs like All Delighted People, too. I'm always writing and recording anyway, so I think it's healthier to make things available even if they don't have a complete, conceptual form.

Pitchfork: Do you have a bunch of finished songs on some hard drive somewhere?

SS: [laughs] Yeah, I have a lot of really weird stuff. I don't know if anyone wants to hear it.

Pitchfork: Weirder than The Age of Adz?

SS: Oh yeah. I did some stuff with my stepdad, Lowell-- Music for Insomnia-- a couple years ago, and it was like improvised noise. That's really where my heart is, unfortunately. I'm less interested in songwriting and more into just making noise.

stevens' early albums were noisier, iirc.

it's an odd notion that the songwriter known for writing the most lush, overly-and-preciously-arranged pop songs of our time is "more into just making noise."

Since we're including aggro ambient in here, i'd like to say that the new Tim Hecker seems to be playin catchup with Ben Frost's metal moods and I have been enjoing it very much.

Also, Western Vinyl is in the process of reissuing the super-subtle work of sound artist Rolf Julius stuff and so far it's been killer diller

Wasn't all that familiar with him, but I picked up Music For The Ear a couple of months ago off emusic and it's pretty good iirc.

Anyone getting into the new Aethenor? O'Malley and cohorts playing freeform rock improv that's not too dissimilar in feel to something like Supersilent. Sounds p. good on first listen.

seminal fuiud (NickB), Tuesday, 1 February 2011 21:36 (3 years ago) Permalink

I don't really dig Aethnor too much. New Tim Hecker is extremely solid. Did anyone see the lineup for upcoming Unsound Fest NYC version? Very cool stuff: Ben Frost, Emeralds, Demdike Stare, Morton Subotnick and Lustmord (!!!). Initial announcement here: http://unsound.pl/en/festival/announcement/unsound-festival-new-york-2011

glad to hear the new tim hecker record is good - have been v much looking forward to hearing it

not at all 'noise' but the sohrab record on touch a hidden place is really good - tense and almost menacing it sounds like a panic attack suffered in slow-mo.

Lamp, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 02:54 (3 years ago) Permalink

unsound nyc looks pretty good.

so whatever happened to no fun fest, anyway?

(⊙_⊙?) (Alan N), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 04:26 (3 years ago) Permalink

the dude who ran it decided he wanted to focus on other stuff incl. an 'international' version of the fest somewhere in europe (cant remember where atm)

Lamp, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 04:58 (3 years ago) Permalink

The Sohrab album is better in the second half where it gets a bit darker iirc. Found it hard to keep up with new ambient stuff last year and was thinking of starting a rolling ambient/drone/drift/field recordings/cricket noises thread... anyone interested? Or do it here?

seminal fuiud (NickB), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 13:55 (3 years ago) Permalink

there's this thread

feeling this. supersilent is a fair comparison but it's a bit more spacious, less funk.

Jon Mueller played an excellent percussion set opening for Colin Stetson at the New Museum tonite. Stetson was extremely impressive but more in a virutoso/physical phenomenon way (he plays bass saxophone and makes it sounds like noisy synth at times!) but Mueller's set really hypnotized me. I don't have a great vocabulary to describe it...minimal, rolling percussion hits with some pre-recorded, ominous feedback/noise growing in volume and then some vocalizations buried in the mix. He has a new(ish) record on Type, I have not heard. It was more drone than noise although it was loud. Good stuff.

Badmotorfinger Debate Club (MFB), Friday, 18 February 2011 05:43 (3 years ago) Permalink

there seems to be a lot of great stuff on type (im deeply impressed w/ deaf centre's 'owl splinters') although i worry that im merely impressed w/ how 'tasteful' their releases are

lamp - if you're worried about type stuff being too tasteful, check this jazkamer one out:

excellent side-long buzzing drone b/w another side of chaotic improv and cut-up noise. this kills!

This Cultus Sabbati album is so good. You can hear the whole thing here. Just an open maw of metal-style 'tudea and harsh noise.

Also, since i did a talk with them for Unsound, I've been spending a LOT of time with the new DEAF CENTER record on type


Listen: http://s3.amazonaws.com/typerecords_site/covers/355/type080_cover_medium.jpg

Badalementi beauty-thru-terror vibes--ghostly rattles, howling cellos, suffocating drones. Highly recommended.

And if you're into the drifty sound art stuff. Ghostly just put out a pretty essential comp. Lots of heavy hitters: Leyland Kirby, Svarte Grainer, Aiden Baker, Kyle Bobby Dunn, etc

just got 4 million dental work/placenta recordings CDs in the mail. i'm noisy. new bastard noise/actuary split on Loveearthmusic is rilly good by the way. if you like that sort of thing.

scott seward, Thursday, 23 June 2011 16:40 (3 years ago) Permalink

whoa, that rrr is next level.

really want to hear that bastard noise/actuary split. bastard noise still in live band powerviolence mode, right? the split with the endless blockade kills.

not that lots of their more "noise" stuff didn't. rogue astronaut is a really sick, massive record.

(⊙_⊙?) (Alan N), Thursday, 23 June 2011 18:29 (3 years ago) Permalink

actually no this bastard thing isn't powerviolence. more like fucked experimenting. sounds cool.

2 weeks pass...

was way into hecker's speculative solution on my first listen last night. if you're a fan of disorienting maryanne amacher-style tone manipulation (often working with short loops), jump on this. don't want to spoil anything but the last track had more than a few jaw-dropping moments.

classy packaging with some small metal balls rolling around the box for some reason.

didn't read much of the hefty booklet (kept getting distracted by what I was hearing) but I'm looking forward to digging into "metaphysics and extro-science fiction."

(⊙_⊙?) (Alan N), Tuesday, 12 July 2011 17:26 (3 years ago) Permalink

Wow that looks stunning. I love packaging you can really sink your teeth into. Such a contrast to flimsy j-cards and the like.

the inside of the front half of the box also a nice, solid red. gorgeous stuff.

this Israel Martínez album, El Hombre Que Se Sofoca, is really great. it's part of new the sub rosa "framework series," and this is easily the best of the handful i've heard

slow-moving soundscapes were field recordings of say, subway trains, that slowly morph into enveloping, suffocating noize

i forget (read it in a review somewhere i think), is this one of those ones that comes with a warning so you don't damage your speakers/ears? because i got a gloriously sick feeling when one of the tracks came on today.

The small metal balls represent one of the key ideas behind the album (linked to chaos theory, uncontrollable variables in output) ; they roll through the box perfectly unpredictable.

Asamoah Nyan (Le Bateau Ivre), Thursday, 14 July 2011 09:02 (3 years ago) Permalink

oh, of course. :-)

listened again last night - sure, the way the recording interacts with the room it plays in and how you're positioned in it definitely adds an element of chaos. but I think what I really like is how these "uncontrollable variables" interact with such a rigid, precise, and DIGITAL composition. just these tight, cutting slabs of sound needling/bludgeoning you until the rug is pulled out and you're abruptly tossed into the next sound palette. really powerful.

and yes, j. I recall reading some warning not to listen on headphones on the emego press release. I certainly wouldn't advise it.

(⊙_⊙?) (Alan N), Thursday, 14 July 2011 16:11 (3 years ago) Permalink

i was just… sitting in a room… listening to the sound of my speakers… with metal balls rolling around inside them.

man, you're not kidding. that last track belongs on a maryanne amacher tribute / cover record.

sounds great on headphones to me! but it's definitely going to sound better over speakers. some of this I recognize from his last SF show at yerba buena.

Peterlicker's Nicht on Editions Mego is compulsory listening. This was Pita's first group in the late '80s and they've got back together to make this very menacing record.
