Furthernoise issue November 2008

"The Birth of Primary Cinema from the Spirit of Sound - Feature  
Article by Frank Rothkamm" (feature)
Primary Cinema remains cinema, it is not painting or staged  
photography. It is comprehended as a sequence of images with sound  
which ultimately constructs its meaning. It de-emphasizes change and  
reduces bright-ness and distributes events on a galactic scale, but  
despite its apparent emptiness it remains true cinema as the marriage  
of projected images and sound in space and time.

"The Gyres, Between Nowhere and Goodbye, The End of  
Everything" (feature)
Cathal Rodgers moonlights from his grubby guitarings with Irish doom- 
mongers Wreck Of The Hesperus as Wereju. Moonlight is apposite in  
application to Wereju, less evil more eerie twin, drawing out long  
rays of wild half-lit nightshade shimmer over grey evacuated fields, a  
sound described by the artist as "ageless drifting melancholia of an  
abandoned planet".
feature by Alan Lockett

"A Ritual Which is Incomprehensible (to the smile of Pauline Oliveros)  
- Claudio Parodi" (review)
The second in an ongoing series of conceptual works by Claudio Parodi  
sourcing and manipulating music from Tiziano Milano's Suoni CD (2005),  
not so much to remix but as staple material for processing in the  
studio. This time as with the last, the album is dedicated to a well  
known sound artist, and Pauline Oliveros is the chosen one on this

"Bedside Stories - Taub" (review)
Bedside Stories is the new release by Taub, aka Me Raabenstein and  
Harold Nono. It is a work of haunting sonic landscapes and fragmented  
realities, glued together with precision and beauty. It will lull you  
into worlds of spacious minimal sounsdcapes and sonic cinematic  
journeys, which constantly resolve back to a single sound event or  
just quiet.
review by Roger Mills

"Document 2 - Sevenhourgerm" (review)
Document 2 by Sevenhourgerm aka Matthew Atkins is a CDR including nine  
experimental tracks released on the Minimal Resource Manipulation  
label. Found sounds and noise are crafted into varying degrees of  
coherency, with rhythm and melody flirting at the edge of perception.

"Electronic Drifting: The Music of Richard Lainhart" (review)
Many contemporary musicians take their inspiration from natural  
processes. Richard Lainhart's musical models come from clouds, flames  
and waves, whose nebulous and ever shifting formations are the  
catalyst for his beautiful electronic works.
review by Caleb Deupree

"Imperfect Silence - Various" (review)
Imperfect Silence is a radical collaboration between artists working  
together purely online. Global boundaries and cultural differences  
make way for free jazz and diverse sonic improvisation, as Phil  
Hargreaves edits together the material to provide a personal narrative  
of Cadavre Esquis.
review by Alex Young

"Italian Noise Label Dokura Serves up 3 Mini Cdrs" (review)
Dokura is an Italian noise label that releases limited edition tapes,  
3 inch CDRs and the occasional vinyl lp from a variety of  
international artists. With 10 releases to date, the little label  
seems to be aiming at noise of the instrumental variety swinging  
closer to the lo-fi dark ambient drone.
review by Derek Morton

"Lost Hilde - Stray Ghost" (review)
The releases on Highpoint Lowlife switch genres like someone channel  
surfing through alternative music TV. Lost Hilde adds yet another  
station to the programming, and an engrossing one at that. Everything  
begins as a smooth midnight cruise through glitched and looped  
synthetic sounds.
review by Max Schaefer

"Sympathetic Vibration - Marcus Jones" (review)
Often, recordings exist as complete works in themselves, or as  
documents or mementos of a live performance. Sympathetic Vibration is  
one of a rapidly expanding body of works that do not fit easily into  
either category, blurring the boundaries between recorded materials  
and live event. Stacey Sewell chats to its creator, phonographer and  
sound designer Markus Jones.
