Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe - Levitation Praxis Pt 4
Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe
Levitation Praxis Pt 4
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (DDS)
20,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe’s incredible experiments with Harry Bertoia’s sound sculptures are here documented on this beautiful new edition for Demdike Stare’s DDS imprint, coinciding with his appearance on the cover of this months issue of The Wire magazine.Lowe is something of a polymath; having started out as part of Math Rock outfit 90 day men and doom metal trio Om, he progressed to forge his own solo work (often under the Lichens moniker), as well as a whole slew of collaborations including work with Johann Johannsson on scoring both Arrival and Sicario, an acclaimed album with Ariel Kalma for RVNG Intl’s FRKWYS series, plus active involvement in site specific video art and sound installations. His most recent work under his own name has seen him release diverse music for Type, Latency, More Than Human and, of course DDS - who have with this album presented what might just be the most beautiful Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe artefact thus far.In 2016 Lowe was commissioned by New York’s museum of Arts and Design to contribute to a Harry Bertoia exhibition, which he undertook alongside video director Johann Rashid. He was asked to create sound recordings with Sonambient sculptures; metal rods and gongs that produce highly distinct, resonant sounds when struck, brushed or touched. Beginning in 1968, Bertoia set up an eighteenth-century stone barn on his property in Barto, Pennsylvania, to house these sculptures and from which he would go on to record works for his highly collectable Sonambientlabel, as recently documented on Important Records’ breathtaking box set and reissue series. Lowe was given full access to the barn, beautifully filmed footage of which can be found on youtube.Lowe’s work with these sculptures is quite unlike anything you might have heard from those original Bertoia recordings. Instead of serendipitous improvisation, Lowe weaves his way through the sculptures on a path that was mapped out in advance,imbuingthem with a more “composed” and arranged feel. As well as thatfamiliar and distinct sound palette, he subtly manipulates and feedsinvocal layers that take proceedings into ever more ethereal and haunting dimensions.
Dyed Soundorom - #003
Dyed Soundorom
12" | 2020 | EU | Original (DDS)
10,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Now in comes the third release from label dds. This time from well-known Paris face, Dyed Soundorom. The Lisbon-based Frenchman delivers two fresh cuts, named after infamous eighties cartoon Thundercats (Cosmocats in France), showcasing his typically reductive, groovy style... On side A we have ‘Cosmocats’, a quirky cut characterised by its rubbery bass and esoteric aesthetics. Dyed takes us into a mysteryland full of strange murmurs and warped voices buried deep in the arrangement, along with funky basslines and an ‘eyes down’ vibe. Heads to the floor for this one, as the groove rolls out neatly with a switch up in the second half after the short breakdown. Flip the record over and we have ‘Life In Thundera’, which feels like an intrepid mission to the planet occupied by those iconic cartoon characters. Jaunty effects pepper the cut, sparring with the sultry groove of the low end. Buzzing effects fly around the top end like alien insects, as Dyed cultivates an atmosphere that channels retro techno tropes through a 21st Century filter. The Apollonia member is on top form with this must-have new release... Grab it while it’s hot.
Orior - Still Strange Green Vinyl Edition
Still Strange Green Vinyl Edition
2LP | 2019 | EU | Original (DDS)
23,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
‘Still Strange’ reaches back into the prized loft tapes of Jeff Sharp aka Orior following the revelatory discovery of his overlooked early ‘80s gems on 2016’s ‘Strange Dream’ collection, as coaxed out by DDS dons Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty. Huddling another sublime, dusty set of analogue tapes freshly baked and remarkably well-restored by Andy Popplewell, ’Still Strange’ contains four gorgeous flashbacks to the era 1979-1983 surrounding and even pre-dating ‘Strange Beauty’, and then shifts focus to recordings that Orior made around the early ‘90s.
