Konstrukt & Keiji Haino
A Philosophy Warping, Little By Little That Way Lies A Quagmire (Live)
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Karl)
18,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
A download code is included. 2nd album by turkish free jazzers Konstrukt and the Japanese avant-garde / noise icon Keiji Haino this time recorded live in concert. Celebrating their 10th anniversary these days, Konstrukt have since been creating an impressive catalogue including collaborations / performances with significant musicians like Peter Brötzmann, Joe Mcphee, William Parker, Akira Sakata, Marshall Allen, Evan Parker, Thurston Moore, Michael Zerang, Alfred Harth or Alexander Hawkins that gained them an ever growing audience and media attention (e.g. a recent Wire feature), and they keep exploring new grounds. Like in 2016 when Konstrukt invited Keiji Haino to their home town Istanbul for a recording session that resulted in a quite unique album: “A Philosophy Warping, Little By Little That Way Lies A Quagmire” offered - besides all the elements you may well expect from such a musical meeting like Konstrukt's “acerbic razor-edged sound” (Mark Corroto, Allaboutjazz) and Haino's unmistakable voice / guitar explosions – some actual surprises like the really groovy opening track with a funky feel and a kind of 70’s fusion style album closer. Two days later the free jazz quartet and the Japanese avant-garde icon continued their adventure with a public performance at Saloniksy, pushing things further and raising the level of energy and rawness. Carrying the same title ““A Philosophy Warping, Little By Little That Way Lies A Quagmire” proves a condign sister release to their previous studio effort. Or, as the famous Asian phrase goes: “same same but different!”

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
A download code is included. Karl is excited to welcome a new artist on board: R.A.N. is the dark electronic / rhythmic ambient music project by Hüma Utku. “Seb-i Yelda” is available as 12” and download. Hailing from İstanbul and based in Berlin for a couple of years now, Hüma Utku has been a prolific artist lately: as R.A.N. (Roads At Night) she released her debut album ''Her Trembling Ceased'', followed by the remix album 'Remixed: Stories Retold' (both 2015, Partapart Records), and contributed several tracks and remixes to various compilations. Besides studio production, she travels the planet to perform live or as DJ, and in November / December 2017 Utku was Artist in Residency at Yara Mekawei’s Submarine Studio, Cairo. The title of her debut on Karl, “Seb-i Yelda” (pronounced Shab-e Yalda in English), is a Persian term that signifies ‘the longest night’. Inspired by the Ottoman poet Bosnian Sabit Efendi’s verses, R.A.N. created four new, very personal tracks, developing further her musical language by fusing traditional instruments with deep electronic sounds, distortion and dark ambience, in order to create intense atmospheres of anger, anxiety, grief – but also empowerment and hope. These compositions are Utku's personal reflections on the long lasting devastation and turmoil in the Middle East as well as witnessing the individual experiences related to these happenings. The titles translate as:'“Seb-i Yelda” (The Longest Night), “Ay” (The Moon), “Sabah” (The Morning) and “Kul” (The Servant of God).

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
After "La Légende d'Eer" in 2016, the PERIHEL series presents one of the milestones of electroacoustic music: IANNIS XENAKIS' mindblowing 54-minutes oeuvre "Persepolis", mixed from the original 8 track tapes by MARTIN WURMNEST and mastered / cut by RASHAD BECKER."Persepolis" is the longest electroacoustic composition by IANNIS XENAKIS (1922-2001) who ranks among the most influential 20th century avantgarde composers. Commissioned by the Persian Shah, the piece was part of a multimedia performance – XENAKIS' so-called "polytopes" – which premiered in 1971 in Shiraz-Persepolis (Iran) as a performance including light-tracks, laser beams, groups of children walking around with torches and 59 loudspeakers to project the music in an open-air situation. XENAKIS had realized "Persepolis" on 8-track analogue tape in the Studio Acusti in Paris and released a stereo reduction on vinyl in the famous Philips series "Prospective 21e Siècle" in 1972, adding the new subtitle "We bear the light of the earth", his most hymnal title ever.Out of print for decades now, the LP became – especially the Japanese edition from 1974 – one of the most expensive collector's item of electroacoustic music. There were some later CD versions with different durations – too long due to a wrong sample rate, others shortened by 3 minutes due to other reasons. The PERIHEL series now presents a new version: mixed from the original (!) master 8 track tapes by longtime zeitkratzer sound engineer MARTIN WURMNEST and mastered by RASHAD BECKER at D&M, Berlin – the same experts who had already taken care of the 2016 KARLRECORDS release of "La Légende d'Eer", another milestone composition among the works of the Greek-French avant-garde composer.

THE OCEAN IS CLOSED is a collaboration of music ensemble zeitkratzer with performance group She She Pop. Play – according to the cultural historian Johan Huizinga – is a free activity carried out within certain fixed boundaries in time and space according to voluntary, but necessarily binding rules. It has no goal outside itself and is accompanied by a feeling of excitement and joy. It creates social alliances that for their part often surround themselves in a secret or set themselves off from the everyday world by means of disguise.In THE OCEAN IS CLOSED the "modern composition super group" (THE WIRE) zeitkratzer and the performance collective She She Pop observe each other across the limits of their own categories. They look in fascination at their "exotic" colleagues. Outside eyes and ears are interested in different things, ask the right wrong questions, misunderstand the agreements and breach basic laws.She She Pop and zeitkratzer play a concert: secret, order and ocean. They celebrate music and play per se.

Australian sound artist Jasmine Guffond presents “Degradation Loops”, initially a sixteen day process of sonic destruction created for an art exhibition. Available as ultra-limited coloured vinyl LP (100 hand numbered items) and download. Australian sound artist Jasmine Guffond’s “Degradation Loops” started out as a sixteen day long composition for an exhibition at Sydney gallery 55 in December 2016. Literally using the ‘degrade’ object from the MaxMSP programming software, “Degradation Loops” gradually and completely bit crushed her 2015 album ‘Yellow Bell’. A process of sonic destruction unfolded in response to a group show where visual artists destroyed and reassembled their work, to create new work, and to question the dominance of commercial imperatives within art. Here Guffond has especially created a thirty minute variation for the vinyl medium.

MICK HARRIS (SCORN, QUOIT, PAINKILLER) returns after several years of hiatus with ten tracks of blasting landmine bass and interlocking shrapnel rhythms.I've been asked to write a press piece for the dark lord MICK HARRIS.Where does one even start? Especially for someone with decades of releases over various solo projects, collaborations and pseudonyms, whether it's doing blast beats in the original NAPALM DEATH to crushing techno brutality as MONRELLA, or savage drum & bass as QUOIT. Then of course there's the mighty SCORN and his numerous collaborations with fellow luminaries such as JOHN ZORN and BILL LASWELL (in PAINKILLER).Rather than being tied to genres or scenes, MICK HARRIS is one of those producers who creates a whole sonic world uniquely of his own, in which varying tracks, styles and tempos take form, but yet in which everything sounds unmistakably characteristic of the creator. Needless to say his work has influenced legions of producers like SURGEON, REGIS, ONTAL, VATICAN SHADOW / PRURIENT, FAUSTEN, SHAPEDNOISE et al, and pretty much anyone in the world of powerfully dark, abrasive music you could name-drop. And yet after all this time, it is impressive that HARRIS still stands way above his successors and has never been surpassed in his own production/performance game.After a hiatus of several years, he is back with a new album under the guise of FRET.Working at a faster tempo than his SCORN material, the FRET project first surfaced years ago on the DOWNWARDS label, rooting it firmly in the dark, industrial and technoid world, and appeared more recently on Tresor (Kern mix by OBJEKT), maintaining the characteristic colossal bass-heaviness and textural depth.And now a full album on KARLRECORDS, Berlin.HARRIS fans will be delighted to know that despite the 130 bpm tempo, the newest FRET still resolutely avoids any straight four-on-the-floor kickdrums; every track lurches, stumbles, staggers and charges forth with beats in beautifully broken asymmetry.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Spring 2013 saw the release of LAURENT DE SCHEPPER TRIOs fulminant debut longplayer after the self-released EP "Telemark" a€“ "Aquanaut" gained highest praise in the press: "Here's something emerging that connects the young german jazz scene with the international sound elite of jazz" (Wolf Kampmann), "refreshingly open-minded jazz … great band." (De:Bug) and "finest entertainment at the highest level" (Westzeit) were some of the opinions. ISABEL FISCHER (bass), LARS OERTEL (drums) und THOMAS BÄR (saxophone) concentrate the progressive now-jazz of NILS PETTER MOLVAER, the ethereal art pop of TALK TALK and the structural freedom of SONIC YOUTH into multi-faceted, rapidly moving compositions where the meandering mix of the musical ingredients generates surprisingly new constellations which embrace cinematic soundscapes as well as emancipated dialogues of the instruments. The new track "Kryptos" offers all qualities of this Leipzig based band, guest vocalist PAULA AKINSINDE (IAN SIMMONDS / KLINKE AUF CINCH) blends excellently into the sound cosmos of the tight trio and is way more than just an ornamental attachment.The KAMMERFLIMMER KOLLEKTIEF remix "The Crypt" on side B triggers finest ecstatic moments and is a perfect completion exclusively available on this limited edition of 300 handnumbered 7"es incl. a postcard!

DOUBLE BIRTHDAY RELEASE !! KARLRECORDS celebrates its 10th birthday, ZEITKRATZER even its 20th! And the party starts with the necessary re-interpretations of early compositions by electronic pioneers KRAFTWERK. CD on ZEITKRATZER PRODUCTIONS, 180gr LP on KARLRECORDS.Founded in 1997 by REINHOLD FRIEDL, ZEITKRATZER have since been creating an impressive catalogue of recordings that embraces 20thcentury avant-garde composers (CAGE, STOCKHAUSEN, LUCIER) as well as electronic artists (CARSTEN NICOLAI, TERRE THAEMLITZ) or underground experimentalists like THROBBING GRISTLE or COLUMN ONE. In their 20thanniversary year, the critically acclaimed ensemble will release a series of diverse albums that will explore new grounds in the typical, adventurous zeitkratzer way - the first of these albums is dedicated to KRAFTWERK and their early, kraut-esque albums "Kraftwerk" and "Kraftwerk 2". As KRAFTWERK never re-released these albums, ZEITKRATZER gave its best to cover the first tranche of the songs (second tranche to come...;).Recorded in Marseille / France in May 2016, the six tracks reveal a bucolic and even psychedelic aspect of the ensemble that's mostly known (or feared) for its interpretatory and aesthetic acerbity. And yet there's no doubt that "Songs From The Albums "Kraftwerk" And "Kraftwerk 2" turned out a true ZEITKRATZER recording in the best and full meaning!

Genre:Rock / Indie
After their furious debut "Aquanaut", Leipzig's LAURENT DE SCHEPPER TRIO release a mature follow up that sees the genre-blending jazz / indie formation heading for new peaks.4 years have been passing since the LAURENT DE SCHEPPER TRIO (who actually became a quartet in the meantime) unleashed their highly praised debut album "Aquanaut": "great band" (De:Bug), "worth listening and important" (Wolf Kampmann / Eclipsed) or "stunning magnificence!" (Subjectivisten) were some of the opinions on the Leipzig-based formation whose sound blends fluidly the progressive now-jazz of NILS PETTER MOLVAER, TALK TALK's ethereal art-pop and the structural freedom of SONIC YOUTH. "Into Olymp" - the title as well as the artwork document an extended band trip to Greece in october 2015 - again turns out a corybantic stylistic balancing act, a brilliant symbiosis of jazz and indie, mature serenity and vital dynamics, sublime finesse and high energy. Complex arrangements, propelled by bass (ISABEL FISCHER) and drums (LARS OERTEL), are the backbone for the multi-faceted guitar play of new member RENE PALFFY and THOMAS BÄR's effect-modified saxophone.A truly monumental effort, recorded at Ballroom Studios / Dresden, produced by JOHANNES GERSTENGARBE and soundwise refined by REUBEN COHEN / LURSSEN MASTERING (CAT POWER, GEORGE HARRISON, IGGY POP, ELVIS COSTELLO, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE) in Burbank, California.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
On her 3rd album Berlin's GOLDEN DISKÓ SHIP enlargens her pop / experimental sound cosmos for a new component: BASS. In consequence, "Imaginary Boys" was mixed by SCHNEIDER TM and RASHAD BECKER took care of mastering and the vinyl cut."Imaginary Boys" sets a new landmark in the work of THERESA STROETGES alias GOLDEN DISKÓ SHIP. The album was conceived during her stay in Lisbon in the summer of 2015 where the multi-instrumentalist found plenty of inspiration in traditional and experimental music. These elements left their traces not only as field recordings but also led the classically trained musician to re-consider the use of her former main instrument viola which is more present than before. One dominant compositional element of "Imaginary Boys" is a deliberate use of time, influenced by the perception of electronic music and techno. While songs like the euphoric "Pacific Trash Vortex" or "Swarm Of Bees" come to the point without any deviation, tracks like "Sundrunk" and "Lifelike Showdown" take their time to develop tense atmospheres of psychedelic intensity. A second characteristic that is accentuated more than on her previous albums "Prehistoric Ghost Party" (Klangbad, 2012) and "Invisible Bonfire" (Spezialmaterial, 2014) is BASS as an aesthetic constant that connects the individual songs / tracks. This way GOLDEN DISKÓ SHIP's sound cosmos, right from the beginning an open and broadly framed matter ignoring boundaries between pop and experimentation, gains a clearly audible additional depth. The choice of electronic artist SCHNEIDER TM for mixing and D&M's studio wizard RASHAD BECKER for mastering / vinyl cut is not only a highly coherent and consequent decision but gives the seven tracks on "Imaginary Boys" the best possible finishing.

JOHN CAGE (1912-1992) is one of the most important composers in modern music: with more than 250 compositions, many of which are considered key works of New Music, and theoretical essays on composition he significantly changed the way we think about and perceive music today. But CAGE not only left a major impact in the academic world, he is also cited as an important inspiration by a wide range of diverse musicians from a younger generation, be it electronic producers, experimentalists or noise artists. His "Song Books", published 1970 in threevolumes, is a collection of open works that contains not only songs but a strange hybrid collection of compositions, graphic scores, meditation rules, experimental settings, absurd musical instructions, performance settings, musical references, and Fluxus-inspired actions such as eating fruits or drinking cognac (CAGE loved whiskey and cognac) ...;

2nd collaboration between the critically acclaimed ensemble zeitkratzer and the great pioneer of noise / industrial William Bennett aka Whitehouse.Music with crystal clear, even neurosurgical precision - pure acoustic power! William Bennett, the musical mastermind behind WHITEHOUSE and CUT HANDS, has already worked with zeitkratzer at several occasions.4 years after their first CD (Whitehouse, zeitkratzer records) the critically acclaimed ensemble and the highly influential noise pioneer release their second album.Recorded live at the festival Musique Action in Nancy / France, the new recording goes even further: while the deep bass frequencies - produced by the huge orchestra drum, at some points as well by the beaten bass strings of the piano or by subtones of the horns - made vibrate not only the floor of the venue while on the other hand high piping sounds, amplified violin harmonics, bitten clarinet tones attack the listener.A music with crystal clear or even neurosurgical precision. And one can hear voices all over - distorted from being spoken through a trombone, a French horn, phantom voices in the density of the sounds, etc.No electronic effects are used - it's pure acoustic power!
