Work For GV 2004-2008
EDITIONS MEGO (AUSTRIA)
) is a composer and performer of electronic audio works, and also the founder of the Editions Mego label. His collaboration with the Paris-based puppeteer and choreographer
began in 2001 with the production of the DACM piece
, followed by
in 2003. In 2004, Vienne started to direct under her own name and began to work on pieces collaborating on text with U.S. author,
. This CD is a document of selected audio parts of all Gisèle Vienne productions made between 2004-2008, except for the epic
, whose audio material was presented on the various
releases in 2006 and 2007. The range here is vast -- from the upfront noise excess of the
(2004) tracks to the lonely synth passages which were used in
Une Belle Enfant Blonde
(2005), and the sad coda used for
, which began as a radio play for Radio France Culture in 2007, before being adapted for stage in 2008. The opening "Murder Version" is a version of the recording of "Meurtre" by
, which was released as a single-sided 12" vinyl in 2005, and is to be considered as a tribute to the
Glissements Progressifs Du Plaisir
(1974). Although this material was intended for consumption in a theatrical setting, it has been edited with domestic use in mind, ultimately representing that grey zone where puppetry, literature, contemporary theatre and dance, visual art, and extreme computer music meet.
Kapotte Muziek by...
KORM PLASTICS (NETHERLANDS)
"The fourteenth installment in this series is a mini CD by Peter Rehberg. For his rework, Rehberg used the recordings of the very first Kapotte Muziek workshop (and concert) held in September 1997, as part of Staalplaat's 'Masterclass' event at the Korzo Theatre, in Den Haag. Rehberg moved away from the digital computer noise recently and for this work crafted together a beautiful, soft but outspoken piece of music. The piece lasts 17:30. Peter Rehberg (aka Pita) (b. 1968, London) is an author and performer of electronic audio works. He has collaborated with: General Magic, Jim O'Rourke, Christian Fennesz, Tina Frank, Tujiko Noriko, Kevin Drumm, Stephen O'Malley, Marcus Schmickler, Michaela Schwentner (aka Jade), Russell Haswell, Florian Hecker, Carlos Giffoni, Gert-Jan Prins, Mika Vainio, Zbigniew Karkowski, Z'ev, Rosy Parlane, Keith Rowe, Dennis Cooper, Gisele Vienne, SUNNO))) as well as being a member of MIMEO."
MOSZ RECORDS (AUSTRIA)
"If the sounds emanating from this disc seem alien, do not be alarmed.
, or 'alienated bodies,' is culled from a series of compositions Peter Rehberg constructed in collaboration with choreographer Chris Haring for a soundtrack to a live dance performance. You can't see the dancers, but you're invited into their alien world where bodies are absent, leaving behind shadows of their sweeping gestures, gentle flourishes, and violent peregrination. The music on this record is the infrastructure of the human body; at times it is pleasant, at others, horrifying. Since Fremdkoerper was originally intended as a companion to the dance performance, it lacks the typical structure of his more conventional releases. Epic drones lead into dramatic scores. Moods change without warning. Glitchy textures give way into thick, heavy tones. The transition from the subterranean rumble of opening track 'Mutisil' to the distorted raygun blast of 'Scream' is enough to reset your heartbeat (in fact, you can consider this press release fair warning). The hulking sine-wave drone of '1407' is quickly invaded by hungry extraterrestrials on 'Bite Double.' This is the record with which to test out your new stereo."
