John Duncan - Da Sich Die Machtgier
John Duncan - Da Sich Die Machtgier Quantity in Basket: None
Code: misc56
Price: $15.99
"This is one of those things that seems should have happened a long time ago, but never did. A collaborative work between John Duncan and Asmus Tietchens, two masters of musique concrete, each with their own distinctive style. The start was texts read by Tietchens (of course of Em Cioran, the french philosoph of whom you will find quotes on most Tietchens covers), which he slightly processed and John did work on. In the end Tietchens thought that the work was good enough by itself, and so it's now released as just a John Duncan CD. Duncan's recent style of stretched out ambient fields of noise music, comes best alive in the final piece on the CD and to some extent also on 'Tauf Sind Mit Andere Namen', which is by far the best piece on the CD. Dense and intense, with a very creepy atmosphere. In the final piece, 'Aber', the voices become a very densely layered mass of sound, almost like swarms of insects, not just a few hundred, but thousands and thousands. It's that we know it's the processing of voice, otherwise one could think it's a flock of seagulls. Quite a minimal piece, but with small changes. Most of the time you place this CD you have no idea you are listening to a processed voice work."
