More Info

JOHN DUNCAN in Zusammenarbeit mit PAN SONIC! Alle drei benutzen ausschliesslich Kurzwellen- und Oszillatorengeräte. Es entstehen hier kraftvoll flackernde Noiseflächen, eher collagierte und auf vereinzelte Ausbrüche setzende Parts, aber auch schwelendes Äther-Rauschen mit leisen Akzenten, und zum Ende ruhigere Drone-Wellen....Das ist Musik, die alle denkbaren klassischen Parameter (Rhythmus, Harmonie, Melodie, Stimme, etc) hinter sich lässt, reiner lebendiger Klang in fast unbeschreibbarer Phänomenologie. 9 Stücke mit 73+ min. playtime.
John Duncan-shortwave, processing / Mika Vainio-oscillators, processing / Ilpo Väisänen-oscillators, processing

"Applying their personal logic codes to a vast range of timbral permutations, the team of Duncan, Vainio and Vaisanen transforms shortwaves and oscillators in a detailed musculature of anxious murmurs, primal electronics, chiaroscuro subsonics whose placental liquids are sprayed around according to a scheme where the decontextualization of the electroacoustic event is fundamental. Everything originates from impulses which are developed and gradually disfigured in a series of frictional refractions whose origin can't be seen, not even from a million observation angles; common glitches and crackles are put under the magnifying lens of our emotional principles, thanks to a gorgeous processing which changes the listening perspective right in the moment of a hard-earned semi-comprehension of the initial nucleus of vibrational matter. When the brain has finally reached the saturation point, the lingering silhouettes of incubated misunderstanding suddenly dissolve: all becomes an intuition per se, rationalizations remaining out of the equation." [Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes]
