dieb13 vs Takeshi Fumimoto
Collaborative smash-up between two Vienna-based electronic and improv masters. dieb13 vs. Takeshi Fumimoto is the product of two unequal characters redefining the relationship between computer and turntables, between digital and analogue electronics. Takeshi Fumimoto means turntable improvisation at its best: he works up various vinyl records, all of them featuring turntables or vinyl music themselves, mashed to a 16-minute piece showing the essence and sonic possibilities of today's experimental turntable music. dieb13 performs the task of breaking in on Fumimoto's work with remixes. Using self-written audio software and focusing on the (often microscopic) structures of Fumimoto's output, he manages to transfer the given sounds into new contexts and cast a surprising light on them. The resulting 31- minutes of music, sectioned in 12 tracks, are seamlessly homogenous, yet rich with variations and surprising twists. dieb13 vs. Takeshi Fumimoto is the result of more than a year of work, and is released as a colorful vinyl picture disc, limited to 500 copies.
