Jason Crumer
"Local Scum"

CDr/lathe, Produck, 2007

Download 16MB

Local Scum was recorded at the infamous Night Light in fabulous Chapel Hill a couple of months before setting out on the six date Crushing Carolina tour with fellow North Carolinians Boyzone and Clang Quartet. Their March 30th tour stop was attended by the few noise artists in the city here and more or less kick started the noise scene in Wilmington. All three sets were packed with eureka moments that lit a fire under our collective ass which helped foster the 910 noise collectives transition from bedroom producers to live performers. After his set, Crumer drunkenly insisted i listen to Pedestrian Deposit, along with a slew of other obscure names only a dedicated noise nut would be aware of. Weird but cool guy. His set that night sounded similar to the one featured in the video clip below, recorded at Black Cat Burrito in Boone the previous night.

The tour had its own 3'' cdr featuring a track by each of the performers.

...and because the nights events had transformed me into a giddy band fan, a trip to the merch table found me happily buying a filthy, blood and sweat stained tour shirt that my wife forbids me to ware on account of how genuinely gross it is.

Va "Futurism & Dada Reviewed
1912 - 1959"

CD, Ltm Publishing, 2000

"Collection of original sound recordings made by key figures from both 20th Century avant garde art movements. With over one hour of playing time, the CD features sound collages, tone poems, interviews and music made between 1912 and 1959 by luminaries such as: F.T. Marinetti (the poet and guiding light of Futurism in declamatory mode, circa 1931), Marcel Duchamp (a much-discussed but rarely-heard example of Duchamp's musical non-theory, its ambient tones still sounding timeless), Tristan Tzara (hugely influential poet of both Dada and Surrealism, whose abstract techniques went on to influence later writers such as William S. Burroughs), Wyndham Lewis (a rare 1940 reading by a leading light of the British futurist offshoot, Vorticism), Guillaume Apollinaire and Jean Cocteau (not members of either movement, but major influences on both, with Cocteau's contribution from 1929 a fascinating curiosity from the golden age of jazz). The collection also includes material by Antonio & Luigi Russolo, Kurt Schwitters, Marcel Janco, Luigi Grandi and Richard Huelsenbeck."

"Electronic Music"

LP, Phillips, 1957 (!!!)

The Electrosoniks were two dutch men who made some of the best electronic themed music of the space pop era (mid/late 50's to early 70's, or so). One listen to their 1957 release "electronic music" proves how on the money they were. While most space pop of the period involved coupling a standard lounge tune with the oddly warbled (and heavily reverb laden) tones of a theremin, "electronic music" truly stepped out of its time, seemingly composed from/for the mindset of the future in it's quirky use of tempo and harmony/melody. Also forward thinking is its use of "studio as instrument" as it incorporates a good deal of sound collage that boarders on music concrete territory, something any noise fan in 2009 would appreciate. File under: crazy stuff from the year your parents entered elementary school. Eight tracks.
