Bent Lorentzen
"Electronic Music"

CDr, Creel Pone, 2005

"..Lorentzen’s music is often characterized as
"sonic", meaning that it has the actual sounds -
the experience of sonority and materiality at its centre."

The Telescopes
"Infinite Suns"

LP, Textile, 2008

Shoegaze without music from one the biggest
bands of the shoegaze era. Should come as no
surprise that a proprietor of that style could make
great straight up noise records. SOLID.

Hypnogogic Sound
/Vibration Tape

CS, Valley Of The Sun Publishing, 1982

Grabbed this from the super coo-l crystalvibrations blog that
specializes in releases from the 70's/80's new age movement.

Most new age releases are fairly obscure as the movement peaked
about 30 years ago, but it didn't disappear entirely. A by product of
New Age was the built in cottage industry of musicians producing
what amounted to high grade cheese in the form of sustained synth
pads accompanied by the ever present sound of water. What kind?
Splashing, running, raining water. However, that wasn't
the case
on this release.
What the listener is treated to on "Hypnogogic Sound/
Vibration Tape" is rumbling. About an hour of it to go with the tape
hiss. Ah yes, transcendental hiss. A journey of self discovery on
waves of rumble and hiss. So basically its sound is pretty much in
step with a lot of stuff I have posted on the blog here, already. I
could have labeled this as an old American Tapes release by any of
artists on that label and it would've seemed right in place. Nuts.

Seth Nehil

LP, Senufo Editions, 2010

Senufo Editions is a limited edition label focusing
on sound art and modern composition run by the
Italian composer Giuseppe Ielasi.
It's releases are
always high quality across the board, and this oop
LP by Seth Nehil,
the soundtrack to the stage
performance piece Bandage a Knife, is no exception.

Pierre Henry
"Mise En Musique Du
Corticalart De Roger Lafosse"

CDr, Creel Pone, 2005

Recorded in Paris in 1971 and originally released that same year
on the Philips Records ultra bad ass Prospective 21e Siècle series.
Screwy-louie synth jams from well before most of our births onto
this planet. I view this record and those like it at the time as the
evil, step child counterpart to the popular Switched On Bach Lps.

Milan Knížák
"Broken Music"

LP, Multhipla, 1979

Czech Fluxus artist Milan Knížák (b. 1940) started experimenting with vinyl records in the 1960's by warping, altering or otherwise destroying them to create new sound sources. He is noted as having developed his techniques a number of years before the better known vinyl artist, Christian Marclay. Knížák has been the director of the National Gallery in Prague since 1999. Like damn.

"The Violence
Of Appropriation"

CD, Junior Meat, 1999

Aufgehoben's first album where the rock to
noise ratio was leaning a bit more towards
rock. Not standard riff rock, mind you.

Despite that, it still manages to get
quite loud a la their later releases.

Tod Dockstader

LP, Creel Pone, 2006

More Creel Pone goodness from American Tod
Dockstader who originally released these 20 odd
tracks on the Boosey & Hawkes label in 1979.

Meant for soundtracks, these two minute pieces
foretold the near future of minimal synth music.

Simon Reynolds of the Wire wrote a piece on
Creel Pone that should shed some light on the
(now defunct) labels story.
