long since the last update or at least i think so.
so just out is cranc’s ‘copper fields’ cd co-produced with organized music from thessaloniki. in brief a noise-below release.
marks the 2nd cranc release exactly after a decade since their first ‘all angels’ cd on edo records and is far more different in style. listening both of them you may see the difference and progress (depnends on your opinion if is progress or whatever) the trio did in their sound search the last decade.
it also marks the end of absurd and an almost 14 year journey comes to its end.
there are various plans in mind for future projects not as intense as absurd at least at the moment (well absurd started like that in 96 you might say and then…). in early / mid july a new project starts and will be the main vehicle for this decade. also important as a vehicle is the ‘outside my window’ blog. my greatest interest wth it is field recordings but never sayno for proper mp3/flac releases. already a dead gum mp3 is uploaded also a binaural field recording of a specific site of the city of kalamata as recorded by nikos kyriazopoulos last april while cycling in the city.
slowly will keep upldating the ‘story so far’ blog http://allnoisesswelltogetherinlandscapes.blogspot.com as still there are shitloads waiting to be uploaded.
also a kind of posthumous release is a 10″ by tasos stamou. a recording of a party held for the birthday of a friend’s daughter last july in the village of nea triglia in halkidiki, north greece. guess sometime in july will be out too.
as has happened with any project unearthed from the genital grinder zine saga and on a ‘link’ between absurd and the new project that is in the works will be a special release somehow the ‘official’ final a 7″ by howard stelzer & frans de waard which is nothing else than another brick on the ‘torn tongue’ wall they slowly built. i assume that it’ll be out sometime in september or october.
speaking of posthumous releases as well the ‘adieu absurd’ party thing will take place on saturday the 4th in the city of xanthi. further details to be announced sometime later during the year.
also ‘a question of re_entry’ has almost fulfilled its idea. a final co-production cdr is due for release sometime in 2010 and will mark its end as well.
hhmm guess that’s all for now. sometime in july will email infos on the new project, its first release, etc.
love & noise
