- ZOHAR 107-2
Rene Lamp、Robert Schalinskiを軸に様々な人物が関わって来たベルリンベースのアート集団Column One。約二年振りの2CDアルバム。カットアップ、ミュージックコンクレート、フィールドレコーディング、どこを聞いても変わらぬ構築の上手さを提示して来る、やはり激激オススメのグループ。レーベル違いでLP版もあり、CD版は限定500。
New album out now.
Zoharum proudly presents the latest album from the legendary Berlin-based art collective Column One. Their new double album, entitled "Cindy, Loraine & Hank", was in the works for almost 10 years and it is their first album since anniversary box set "No One" from 2011 and "Antiphona" 10" vinyl EP from 2013. For this recordings, Column One were René Lamp, Robert Schalinski, Jürgen Eckloff, Andrew Loadman with Nada and Rasmus Schalinski plus a host of guests including Reinhold Friedl and Zeitkratzer Ensemble.
This double album presents Column One and their experimental approach to sound at its best."Cindy, Loraine & Hank" a collection of incestuous figures, a museum of small, lovely bastards. Products of passion & weakness, disorientation and dedication, of dull instincts and narrowness. Twins, triplets, octuplets, dyslexic, presidents, beginners, criminal citizens, sacred Neanderthals, expert idiots. Begotten in haste, hidden in the dirt, covered with garbage.
A contourless, monstrous void in the cardigan of the great-grandmother.
A voyage through the labyrinthine mind of Column One... a surreal, organic projection.
