Langham Research Centre - Tape Works Vol. 2 | Nonclassical (NONCLSS043)

nonclassical: ...Tape Works Vol. 2 is the new album from the UK’s leading musique concrète ensemble, Langham Research Centre.

This album presents recent substantial pieces that contrast with the shorter pieces found on Tape Works Vol. 1 (2017) which showcased some of the group’s earliest tape experiments. These new pieces utilize recordings made in specific locations in addition to an array of analogue devices and sound producing objects, some of which feature in the album’s cover art.

This approach is evident in Dinotique, commissioned for Café Oto’s Stereo Spasms festival in 2019, a celebration of the work of the late French composer Luc Ferrari to mark his 90th birthday.

Luc Ferrari – a founding member of the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM) who worked alongside composers such as Pierre Schaeffer and Pierre Henry – is an inspirational figure to LRC.

Asked to choose one of Ferrari’s works to respond to with their own new piece, LRC selected Les Anecdotiques (2002), a work in which Ferrari combines his recordings from a series of travels with his archive of electronic sounds and spontaneous and intimate words.

This is distilled soul music in it's purest form.From the first beat right through to the final chorus, the brooding tension and almost unbearable tranquility of chester giles' words amplify the heaviness of the rhythm, controlling time until 'Alex Rendall' the voice of Jabu sets in with the chorus, echoing chester's sentiments, elevating this feeling into higher heights.A masterfully executed love-song... 'Achingly smooth' as Steve Barker put it.
The wait is over. Somewhere between the rodeo clowns in the summer and archangels at the end of time: Blectum from Blechdom have returned. This is obvious from the moment your needle drops on their new album 'DeepBone' and never lets you forget it. Swirling swarms of inhumanly perky voices bounce between your speakers, only taking breaths for the electronics to be equally overcharged. Hyper-melodic glitches and helium-contaminated Broadway arrangements are all interwoven with brocaded beats and elegant fractal architectures, sending an important message: Brain go crazy now!This duo, composed of Kevin Blechdom and Blevin Blectum, bring us their 6th official album and first for Deathbomb Arc. Digital due on July 23rd and vinyl in the fall; both on pre-sale now.
from the artist's bandcamp: ...TALKING OF POST-TECH DIALECTICS,THIS IS A TRIBUTE TO THE CYBERPUNK.The mother of technology collapses. Ten fragments of her soul are spread in cyberspace. The last encoder composes the pieces to a manifest. A poem that is a call for the distortion of the artificial.Manifest is an album, in which CORIN synthesizes the reconciliation of the dystopian and utopian. It is a story of manipulated time that exists out of instrumental and vocal proportions.
