Vox Populi! - Aither +



Audiofiles
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#36], Ivory Coast, 2013


Last months have been a prolific period for Vox Populi! re-releases, as will be next ones. After "La Cathédrale Morte" (net-release), "Ébats Spirituels" (net-release), "Half Dead Ganja Music" (LP), here is the net-re-release of "Aither", the second Vox Populi! LP from 1989, with 3 unreleased tracks from the same period, all remastered by Axel Kyrou in 2013. "Aither" sounds like a synthesis of the different music styles the band has developed during the 1980s. It was originally released by Visa, a famous french independant label, and some of the tracks were included on the "1987-1990" CD released by Infrastition in 2008, but the entire album is available again for the first time.
More is coming. Very soon will be released "Funk Off" (CD), a compilation of early 80s tracks by Vox Populi! and Pacific 231. And finally, in the fall of 2014, Vinyl-on-demand will release a Vox Populi! vinyl boxset (2LP + 7" for members) with 130 minutes of music from the 1982-1988 period, including their complete first LP "Myscitismes" from 1985.
Again I want to warmly thank Axel and Mitra for their inspiring music and their generous politics of sharing.

Rudolf Eb.er with Various Artists - Stuhlgangblockaden



Audiofile
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#35], Ivory Coast, 2013


Rudolf Eb.er is certainly one of the most important artists of the international experimental music scene since the end of the eigties. With his musical projects (such as Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock) and his Schimpfluch label, he brought very original contributions to that scene that is too often marked by imitation and repetition. One of his most interesting early releases was the R&G "Stuhlgangblockade N!" LP, a classic of sound recycling and dadaist collage that uses sources from around thirty different artists, who had themselves recycled R&G material. In 2012, Rudolf edited a shorter version of the LP for an art exhibition in Zürich. Here it is.

1. Stuhlgangblockaden (17:12)

Tibetan Red - Scanning



Audiofiles
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#32], Ivory Coast, 2013


Official net-re-release of classic Tibetan Red early music pieces, originally released on cassette in 1985 and on CD in 2000, whose Vital Weekly review is still a good presentation :

"To put your entire musical output on one CD, and thus offering the "complete works by" - what an interesting idea (that's why I am so fond of Varese and Webern - the consequent, small body of work). In the mid 80s somebody recorded as Tibetan Red, having one track on the LP 'Freedom In A Vacuum', the first release by a label with the same name and a cassette on that very same label. That somebody came from Spain, went to Canada and is now in Southern Europe. Thus we see the CD released on a label from Barcelona.
'Scanning' (the comp piece aswell in it's complete form on cassette) is an excellent piece of layered shortwave sounds, morse codes and underlying drones from a synth. 'Kalahari Fire Birth' uses many unidentifable sounds, set against the tape-loop (sampling was virtually non-existent in those days) of ethno origin. A raw version of zoviet*france like ambience. 'The Sistine Chapel' is a previously unreleased track, and also works with looped ethno material, here the didgeredoo. All three tracks clock at 20 minutes and all have a trance like spirit, without leaping into boredom. What I particulary like about this CD is the undated, fresh rawness of the 80s cassette movement, transformed to CD. An aural document of the 'anything goes' attitude, which Vital owes it's credit to, too".
Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly, N° 244.

Dan Joseph - The Woolly Mammoth Tapes (1989)



Audiofiles
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#30], Ivory Coast, 2013


"The Woolly Mammoth Tapes is a collection of five previously unreleased ambient-industrial tracks composed in close chronological proximity during the very late 1980s. At the time I was still in Washington, DC, living and working in an industrial loft space at 1512 14th Street in a building that also housed, among other artists and cultural enterprises, the Woolly Mammoth Theater Company. While there is no literal connection between these tracks and the theater company, it's a meaningful association for me and helps to
situate the music in its time and place.
The works mark the end of a 2 to 3-year period of working in this mode and stylistically follow three similar cassette releases - Morpheus (1987), Sonorous Alchemy (1988) and No.3 (1988), which were all distributed throughout the world by way of the international cassette underground. Further releases were in the works, but by that time I had already radically changed course musically and was beginning my formal composition studies that would take me to CalArts in Los Angeles in 1991, and nothing more was released.
These five tracks are among the best of my last remaining tape pieces and were all made on a Tascam 388 8-track porta-studio. The primary sound sources are electric guitar and a Korg DW8000 synthesizer, both heavily processed with an Ibanez DM-1100 digital delay and a Yamaha SPX90 multieffects processor. There is also a field recording made at Great Falls, MD (falls), and my voice (mammoth). The album image is a contemporaneous photo I took of my studio windows overlooking Church Street."
