Verrckte, fordernde, konkrete Noise-Collaborations auf dieser schn gestalteten Doppel-Single, von dem Bostoner Duo HOWARD STELZER und JASON TALBOT. Kommt im Klappcover, auf dem Chicagoer Label C.I.P. !

The Boston-based duo of Howard Stelzer (tapes) and Jason Talbot (turntable) has been performing together since 1999. With a honed proficiency on their designated instruments, Stelzer and Talbot create an audio dialogue that relies more on playing the equipment as opposed to using either as traditional playback devices. A rich array of whirs, chirps, sputters, skitters, squeals, scrapes, and other bursts of sonic activity you wouldn't think a turntable or cassette machine capable of (or, at times, even surviving) are the foundation of Stelzer and Talbot's sound palette as they build and shift their compositions. A vortex of crunching and feedback from a needle grinding into the turntable body while three cassette players sputter rapid-fire through elaborate pausing and fast forwarding rituals can collapse into a squirming sine-wave like whine from a single paused cassette motor a moment later. And although it's hard for me to listen to this and not envision the physicality of their live performances, these recordings definitely capture the equally dynamic results. Edition of 400.
