Shit And Shine ‎– Some People Really Know How To Live

いま、Demdike Stare-Cosmogonyの動きに象徴されるように、先端はINA GRMだといえば、バカみたいにミュージック・コンクレートや古い現代音楽だけを聴く無知な音楽ファンをぼくは信じてない ( INA GRMの古い音源にもダサすぎて聴くに堪えないものも多い ) 。クラブミュージックのMumdance & LogosやShapednoiseのDifferent Circlesなどの異形ダンスミュージックの表出があったからこそ、INA GRMの音楽に繋がったこと、忘れては、事実を履き違えることになるし、結局そうしたリスナーは先端音楽の本質を理解していない、といえる。断言すればShit And Shine ‎の異形ダンスミュージックこそコンテンポラリー・ミュージックなんだ。

Shit and Shine ‘Notified’ (EMEGO 238)

Even among listeners whom already have demonstrably “open-minds” when it comes to experimental music, the recorded output of Texas-born, London-based noise mangler Craig Clouse can be a little…divisive. Gone are the days in which Clouse’s Shit and Shine project simply enthralled us with manic, noise-rock songs that suddenly made “Tom” your explicable favorite first name; because recently, he’s been mining a new vein of mutated dance tracks (albeit still percussion-addled ones). Listen to the 2015 release Everybody’s a Fuckin Expert, for instance, and it still sounds like “drums” are the centerpiece from which all things originate (like some ineffable Abrahamic God…or a street performer who’s, like, super good at juggling), but orbiting that cosmic centerpierce are chaotic satellites of minimalist electronics. Two years later, what new, unholy mutations can we expect from the shape-shifting likes of Shit and Shine? (You are asking this, yeeeeees?!?)

For your answer, please acquaint yourself with Shit and Shine’s newest — and perhaps least readily-apprehend-able — release on Editions Mego, Some People Really Know How To Live, which just came out on vinyl and via digital download. Judging by the album’s first two genuinely batshit singles, Clouse’s latest experiments are out there to an extent that the even the word “danceable” appears only in the blurry, darkened distance, shrouded by bushes. But don’t take my word for it. Plunge off the deep and and listen to the tracks “Notified” and “Blick Von Der Berg” below. Then, one you’re out there, snag the whole album right over here.

Bleep
Typically twisted shock out system shakers from Shit & Shine for Editions Mego, continuing a busy year that has seen $&$ already drop brilliant LPs for Gang Of Ducks and Diagonal.
Moving further away from his percussive led early work as a more conventional band, Shit & Shine’s second Mego album finds him experimenting further with the rubbery laptop bounce of the EVOL end of Mego’s brand of electronica. Turning up the bass to the maxxx Some People Really Know How to Live is in many ways Mego’s rave record, from the Sleaford Mods gone glitch of Lil Wannabe Gangsta through the Powell/Not Waving-esq new beat rumble of South Padre Low Life. The dance-floor dwellers will find much to feast on here.

Shit And Shine:
Craig Clouse:
“Shit & Shine’s sidestep from percussion led bunny rabbit rock ensemble performance based glee to ultimate heavy fools of the sticky dancefloor remains one of the more inspiring turn around’s in recent years. With highly acclaimed releases on Editions Mego, Diagonal, Riot Season and others Shit & Shine have wasted no time clearing away the rubbish whilst cutting up their own path towards giddy bass heavy shape shifting dance mutations. Snapping the twigs of disco, hurling clouds of exquisite dissonance, mangling modulations, boiling beats, twisting tweaks… this is a crew that will throw anything at the wall, and you.” – Editions Mego

complete preview from the fine art book “Alveare”

preview soundtrack (excerpt) : A1 : vano + B1 : Abito
(ps : please watch and listen it with some decent headphones)
“Alveare is a journey across and around man-made cement beehives – the legacy of a group of visionary architects. Their playground: post-war Italy. Their vision: affordable dwelling designed to meet as many human needs as possible. A superficial look at these architectural reveries decades later might bring to mind terms such as “excessiveness” and “megalomania”. But these massive edifices are prototypes of a city of the future – an urbanized future that was yet to be shaped by bold ideas and dreams. Meandering across the endless corridors of Nuovo Corviale or Rozzol Melara is like a surrealist hike through the realities of thousands of inhabitants of a beehive. And although the walls are made from rigid concrete, they have an organic feel to them. Facades move, shapes shift. Human demands are stronger than concrete and nature will always find a way. Alveare is a look at drawing board visions cast into concrete and their human adjustments.”
“Matthias Heiderich”

ジャケットにみられるMatthias Heiderichの建築写真はドイツの伝統の影響が遍在している。 Bechers、Heiderichはまた、産業の建物や構造の類型を作成するが人間の姿には興味がないのだが、それに反してそれぞれの写真は人間性に満ちており、建物が人間の心と技能の産物であることを強調している。 “Gwen Lafage(グウェン・ラファージュ)”
「Alveare」は戦後イタリアの先進的な建築家のグループの遺産で、その遊び場、ヴィジョンは人間のニーズに対応できるように設計された手頃な価格の住居。これらの大規模なedificesは未来の都市のプロトタイプで、まだ大胆なアイデアや夢によって形作られていない都市化された未来。 “Matthias Heiderich(マティアス・ハイデリッヒ)”

Die SchachtelのZeitコンポーザーシリーズに登場したり、BoltのPopulistaシリーズからも出したり、またDavid Maranhaとの共演作を、そしてHapna、Room40をはじめ数多くのレーベルから作品をリリースしている幅広い活動を行ってきたイタリアのドラマー/コンポーザーAndrea Belfi。フランスの新レーベルIIKKIから発表した2017年LPタイトル[Alveare]。
2014年にMiasmahレーベルからフルアルバムAndrea Belfi : Natura Morta [CD]がリリースされている。

IIKKIからの作品は現在3枚リリースされていて、完全なプロジェクトは、本とヴィニールの2つの物理的なインプリントで動作する。
Stillsの音楽は最小限の電子アンビエントで構成されたもので、シューベルト作品の最初のいくつかの小節のクレイの操作と、それをアルバムの価値ある音楽に引き伸ばそうとする試みで作られた。個人的な記憶の実験であり、無限のものを無限に見つけることができ、演奏時の音に蒸留の層を追加するために音を操作している。それはテープヒスノイズの音で混雑しており、音を聴くという物理的な行為に歴史的感覚を与え時代を超越している。Katrien De Blauwerのアートワークは作品と交差し、本の彼女のフォトコラージュは、白い枠で囲まれていて、テープヒスのすべてのざらざらしたエッジのように、その非対称的な写真は、その人の顔を隠し、ほとんど身体の一部に集中している・・

Kassel Jaeger-Aster


空間と構造のメタディメンションなパラダイムは、 どこまでもストイシズムに突き抜けている。
そしてメランコリックでロマンチック・・去年の’Zauberberg’でのオーラティックな旅の続編

The frontier for French electroacoustic mystical music has traversed much ground since Pierre Schaeffer shuffled on the past and laid out a map without borders or designated ground. Seventy years in this land of the fried we hear a plethora of Ideas and ongoing potential coming from all corners of the globe. Inheriting the wisdom of past masters whilst forging a signature style of his own Kassel Jaeger sists as one of the premier explorers of these unknown worlds today. Comprised recently recorded tracks Kassel Jaeger presents a work of revisits and reworkings, one which acts as a hinge in both closing this particular chapter whilst opening up the windows to new sound world to come. In Aster we have a rich deep music replete with dark ambient sonorities swirling amongst intense buzzing tones. Often chilling and ominous this is a fearless music with abstracted corners and dynamic leverage. Unafraid to embed itself in the ongoing whirlpool of sonic progress. Jaegers output remains a thrilling body of exploration and ongoing transformation.
