More Info

Intransitive Recordings is proud to present the long-awaited debut CD by Howard Stelzer and Jason Talbot. "Songs" contains eight concise pieces of electro-acoustic music created from cassette tapes and a single turntable. Since the duo's inception on 1999, they have worked toward developing a unified, improvisatory sonic language by approaching their machines in a decidedly instrumental manner. For their first album, Stelzer & Talbot take inspiration from artists such as Schimpfluch-Gruppe, P16.D4, SBOTHI, as well as musique concrete and contemporary free improvisation, arriving at a voice entirely their own. The duo's music demonstrates a raw passion and energy, anchored by tense silences.
Stelzer and Talbot have toured extensively, collaborating with artists as diverse as Kevin Drumm, Martin Tetreault, Haco, Gert-Jan Prins, Keith Fullerton Whitman/Hrvatski, Roel Meelkop, Le Quan Ninh, nmperign, Christian Renou/Brume, Brendan Murray, Brent Gutzeit, Jack Wright, Ron Lessard, and Jason Lescalleet. In addition, Stelzer has performed with Axel Doerner, Jos Smolders, Jerome Noetinger, Lionel Marchetti, James Coleman, and Andrea Neumann, and is a member of Bhob Rainey's large ensemble the BSC, whose first CD is forthcoming on Grob this summer. Stelzer runs the Intransitive Recordings label, and Talbot the Kissy Records label. They live in Boston, Massachusetts. [press-release]
