~Niklas Adam: A3&B| 12" [BIN 00-28]
..


Track list:

A: A3
B: &B

Side A Feat. Danielle Dahl. Recorded at Absorbent Templet. Side B Feat. Benjamin Lesak. Recorded at Gl. Harlev Salmecykel Opbevaring. Composed by Niklas Adam.

A3 is an improvised piece for baritone- and alto saxophone, that explores minimal gestures, on a background of near silence.

&B is a drone piece for two players, playing an antique harmonium, creating an atmosphere between calm and intense depending on playback volume.

Among numerous small run releases A3&B is the debut LP release by Niklas Adam. Recorded and mixed in the summer and fall of 2009 in East Jutland. A3&B represents a change in Adam’s early practice with electronic music, which during 2008 was intervened by a focus on near-static and reductionistic acoustic music. In addition to exploring the two sided format of the vinyl, A3&B investigates emptiness, perception of time and focus fatigue as primary compositional elements. Favoring the progress of occurrences and textural over tonal development A3&B is equal active environment and static object.

Niklas Adam works with performance- and installation art in addition to music. Runs the shared studio space ILS FYKSI, producing music for himself and others. Adam has been active in the improvised music scene for several years, touring and working in Europe, Japan, Russia and the US. He has collaborated with Mattin, Toshimaru Nakamura, Jim Denley and Anders Vestergaard among others, and is a part of the Norwegian artist group Verdensteatret, in which he works with sound, programming and electronics. Adam also forms part of the trio Tigers Mind.

JONAS OLESEN - TEST (LP by Bin)

It's been ages since I reviewed music by Jonas Olesen, when he called himself Hector
Rottweiler. These days he is occupied with the Nordic Sound Art label and also his solo
work. Some of his releases may look like a record, but they are also art objects and in
some cases playback might not be easy. For his new record Olesen uses a "number of
historical test records, and psycho-acoustical demonstration recordings", and plays around
with these sounds, adding additional sounds from "a LEADER LFG-1300S analogue Function
Generator, and processed by an Phillips ISP 5021 Sound Enhancer", as well as 'simulated
tinnitus sounds', 'psychoacoustic demonstration signals' and 'vibraphone recordings' -
the latter being an instrument, I believe. Actually that was a silly joke on my part.
The music that Olesen creates with these sounds is quite interesting. He may have shaped
the whole thing to look like a test record, including interesting descriptions of the
pieces, it also sounds very good, in a highly musical way. The static and dry sine wave
like sounds are looped melted and collated and thus new music is created. Sometimes quite
noise based as one could expect from music made with sine waves, but when Olesen uses the
collage form things turn out to be quite good. There is a lovely drone piece of ascending
and descending tones called 'Shepard Tonal Paradox', static hum pieces, crackles but
also spoken word, such as checking the stereo spectrum, which makes it almost sound
poetry. The whole package had something very 'art' like but luckily enough it is also
quite playful, which is the greatest thing about it. It takes the format of a 'test
record' and something is done with it, and that something is most enjoyable to listen
to: what more could you possibly want? Test succeeded! (FdW)

~ Wayne Siegel: Domino Figures [ One sided 12" Vinyl 2009 ] [BIN 00-03]
.


Domino Figures (1979) Work for 42 - 105 Guitarists. Reissue.

Domino Figures has been widely performed since it was composed in 1979, including a television production with 105 guitarists, made to celebrate the 5th aniverssary of Denmark's TV2 - a record-breaking performances that found its way into the Guiness book of records.

Essentially, this piece is a strict canon constructed around 97 different musical figures.
The performers sit in a semicircle, and each musical figure is passed around this semicircle in a kind of slow chain reaction similar to that of falling dominoes by means of a unique system of visual cues.
The guitarist on the audience's extreme left begins playing the first figure, signaling the player to his left by dipping the neck of his guitar slightly as he begins.

The second player then waits one beat after receiving this signal before beginning the same figure and signaling the player to his left.
In this way the musical figure is sent around the semicircle, each guitarist beginning one beat after the player to his immediate right.
Any given figure reaches the last guitarist about 36 seconds after the first guitarist has set the new figure moving around the semicircle,
and these new figures are combined with previous figures while they are in the process of replacing them.

A sonic effect not usually associated with the guitar is created by the large number of guitarists performing the same figure in different tempi. Massive, sustained, almost choral textures are produced, and these textures evolve and change slowly, creating a spatial effect as elements gradually move from one side of the semicircle to the other.

The extreme spatial effect created by the high number of guitarplayers, can be seen as an exploration of the same effect, created by
Alvin Lucier in his piece 'I am sitting in a room' Furthermore, the piece can be viewed as a vital experiment inacoustic filtering,
resulting in a blurring of the acustic instruments.

~ Roberta Settels Isolation! [12" Vinyl LP 2007 ] [BIN 00-02]
.


Roberta Settels is an American composer and industrial designer, currently living in
Stockholm, Sweden. She studied composition at Juliard in New York, and during the
70-ties and 80-ties, composed electronic music in Stockholm at EMS, and in Paris
at IRCAM, and studied with the composeres Pierre Boulez and Iannis Xenakis
Later she created her own studio.

Isolation from 1985 is her only released recording. It was released on her private label
“Music in Crisis”.
Although ‘Isolation’ was composed in 1985, most parts of it sound very fresh and0
contemporary. Very unique for it’s time, the timbres and formal progression of the
work bare little resemblance to the electroacoustic maximalism of the period. Rather it
shares aesthetics with contemporary genres such as Lowercase and Microsound.

The music, all generated by pure analog means, contains elements of extreme
minimalism and splicing-techniques derived from the tape-music tradition. Even
though the work, making clever use of sine-waves and white noise, it is very minimal
in it’s expression, and very clearly communicates the emotional states of lonliness
and isolation which are it’s conceptual aim.

The work is divided into four parts: Landscape With 3 tape-recorders And… ,
Scenario, Isolation (Meinhof In Memoriam) and P1 – Information? , forming a
perceived whole.

This reissue comes in a limited edition of 250 copies with a custom-made plastic
sleeve, with theoriginal cover and cover-notes in Swedish, English, German and
French, written and designed by the composer.

Tracklist:

A1: Landscape With 3 tape-recorders And… (12:03)
A2: Scenario (9:07)
B1: Isolation! (Meinhof in memoriam) (43:90)
B2: P1 – Information? (3:33)
