Francisco Meirino "Notebook (Techniques

sharp knives, dying tape recorders and voices below the threshold of

Seitz Versus Gendreau "S/T" LP
Seitz Versus Gendreau is a collaborative experiment in using concrete
music compositional strategies.
These pieces were composed with created and found sound captured in San
Chorus After Rains: A strategy where we each use the same raw
sound clips with different results. The two pieces are then melded to
create one piece of music, the different modules becoming inseparable
Things Lost That Will Never Be Found: A composition with
live instruments, moving from a toy piano to various invented motor
instruments; a piece that transitions from melody to noise.
Trains Will Not Stop: Another Grand Surface Noise opera (Nr.
9), using the various sounds from records, composed by Gendreau and
re-mixed by Seitz using accelerometer recordings collected in San
Francisco during 2005.
SEITZ, based in Oakland, California and formerly a member of
Taxodiaceae, makes a rare foray into recording. Seitz is fascinated by
the re-contextualization of ephemeral sound such as- streams from
radio, lost and forgotten records, tangents of passing conversation,
fragmented voicemails, pieces of cassettes sound, field recordings by
amateurs, tv movie themes, and random and despised podcasts- and the
breakdown of the music bubble that surrounds most contemporary music
consumers. Seitz envisions a world where listeners actually listen and
no music is fetishized.
GENDREAU has composed and performed solo, as well as in
several group configurations since 1979. His former group Crawling With
Tarts (1983-1998) used ideas revolving around elementalism and
pre-language states. Gendreau has elaborated on these ideas while
adding concepts based on his studies in physics, philosophies attending
to temporal and environmental persistence, applications of parataxis,
and experiments with small motors and turntable mechanisms. His
performances have involved sounds from one-off transcription discs cast
by others in the middle of the last century, and those cut in his
studio using a decrepit lathe. More recently, Gendreau has sought to
extend these later studies, and to use buildings as a speaker. He
records the infrasonic vibrations of the performance space and in the
concert, he uses the structure's resonances as an additional instrument
in his site-specific compositions. These practices are based in part on
his current work as an acoustician, working primarily on low-vibration
and noise design for buildings.
Released in a limited edition of 90 copies, packaged in

"HACE/26,250' b/w 11° 22.4'N 142° 35.5'E" LP
The audio on this LP was inspired by early efforts to explore extreme
locations on earth, and the clash between the will of humans, the
limits of their bodies, and the immutable laws of the natural world-the
latter which can easily destroy both of the first two.
The 11° 22.4'N 142° 35.5'E" side is based on the 1960 dive by
Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh in the bathyscaphe Trieste to the
Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench, the deepest known point on earth.
This side aims to mirror the combination of analytic
scientific preparation and calibration that the team did and the
inherent and unavoidable human concern of "if something goes wrong,
there's a good chance we could die."
The HACE/26,250' side was inspired by research on High
Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE), a condition where oxygen is not getting
to the brain.
HACE has the greatest potential for striking in the Dead
Zone, (26,250 feet), where available oxygen cannot sustain human life
for more that 3 hours. Of course, for someone aiming to summit Mt
Everest, there are "only" 2,750 feet remaining-and, the person still
has to descend back through the Dead Zone. With their goal so closely
in reach, a climber may sacrifice the rational (saving their life) for
the sake of achieving their goal (summiting Everest).
HACE/26,250' is a soundtrack for a body closing down; heart
rates slowing, blood flow slowing, everything once moist and carrying
life slowly becoming brittle, dry, and unable to function due to duress.
Vertonen is Blake Edwards and devices-for this LP, the
primary device is a Russian Polivoks synthesizer. Based in Chicago,
Illinois, Edwards has performed at numerous festivals in the US, as
well as toured the US and Japan. In addition to numerous 7" records, 3"
CDRs, full-length CDRs, and split 12" records, Vertonen also has
released three CDs funded by City of Chicago grants (as is this

symptoms contained within.

Glass and Mirror" LP
From beautiful northern and southern California comes the duo of
John Wiese. Since the release of their first EP, The Disappearing Act
("unbearably intense" -The Wire), they have continued their live
collaboration up and down the West Coast. Panoramic Glass And Mirror
immerses the listener into a blend of sound layers, confronted with a
melodic and haunting atmospheric approach while still retaining immense
power. Side A was crafted from live recordings by John Wiese, while
was produced from studio sessions by Daniel Voss (Leviathan, Lurker Of
Chalice, Deathroes, Yellow Swans).

On his fourth studio album, Jason Crumer has further honed his
craftsmanship and focused his vision. Recorded with meticulous
precision, every sound is placed, mixed and arranged with purpose.
Crumer coaxes an unprecedented depth of sound out of layers of
electronics and field recordings. Romantic in nature and cinematic in
scope, "Walk with me" exemplifies Crumer's remarkable approach. The
album furthermore attests to his relentless honesty and total
dedication to his art.
