古典ミニマルとダンスミュージックを繋ぐ研究音源を発表したり、ドラムマシンのサウンドインスタレーションを行ったり、Entr'acteからValerio Tricoliと激ヤバな共作を制作したりと、とにかくミニマルにフォーカスしたアプローチを続けているドイツ人作家Hanno Leichtmann。Karlrecordsより発表された本作は主に奇怪なコラージュリズムワークを軸とする過去最高にブッ飛んだ一枚!! ミニマル & コラージュ好きは勿論の事、この変則的過ぎる音楽性はあらゆる方に体感して頂きたいです。180グラム重量盤。マスト。
Distilling sounds from the now 70 years old archive of the DARMSTADT SUMMER COURSES FOR NEW MUSIC, the Berlin based electronic artist HANNO LEICHTMANN presents a stunning new album which is remix, collage and homage at the same time. Mastered and cut by RASHAD BECKER at D&M.
On his latest work “Nouvelle Aventure”, Berlin’s HANNO LEICHTMANN (who besides his solo works also plays with JAN JELINEK and ANDREW PEKLER in GROUPSHOW and recently released his 2nd album with VALERIO TRICOLI on ENTR’ACTE) presents his very individual approach to the task of remixing and reworking the IMD archive. As in his previous installations (e.g. “Skin, Wood, Traps“ for Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt, celebrating the 100th birthday of the drumset), the electronic artist distills his sound material exclusively from a thematically fixed archive, in this case: concert recordings, lectures and discussions from the now 70 years old archive of the famous DARMSTADT SUMMER COURSES FOR NEW MUSIC (STOCKHAUSEN, NONO, LIGETI, XENAKIS et.al.). Originally a 6-channel installation as part of “Historage” at Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt, the composition is here presented as a 46 minutes stereo mix. LEICHTMANN sent the subjectively-chosen sounds through his unique machinery of voltage-controlled (micro-) loopers, re-recorded them and then in a last step pieced them together in his studio, primarily applying the traditional parameters of early electronic (tape) music (amplitude, pitch / speed, playback direction, series / cuts, but most of all: repetition. The result is a stunning album which is remix, collage and homage at the same time – and a highly psychedelic affair, as mirrored by the amazing artwork by CARO MIKALEF (CABINA).
