Two new releases

Two new releases, one received yesterday, one today.

Both of these were made using similar principles of working, one that I use a lot for Freiband these days. I process large chuncks of sound without caring too much about details and when I have a bunch of these processed sounds (anywhere between 10 and 30, usually 15-20 minutes each) I will mix these together in a rather ‘blind’ way. Thus large form compositions arise. ‘Vrijdag’ uses sound sources by Slavek Kwi and Darius Ciuti, which I found on their bandcamp when writing a review about their work, and is the second day of the week that is now released. I already did ‘Zondag’. I plan a 74 minute work for every day of the week  (‘Donderdag’ is also finished in case anyone is interested). Slavek released this on a CDR in an edition of 25 copies.

From Mike D’Amato I received two short sound samples from which I created ‘Trickle’, along similar compositional lines. He created a work out of my sources, and the whole thing is released by Altar Of Waste, in an DVD box and in an edition of 20 copies.

Needles to say, I have very few to sell, first come, first served. I am probably able to ship this out tomorrow, before I will be out and about to tour for a week.
