Label: The Tapeworm
当店にて英老舗の名門TouchからのLP[The Debatable Lands]、サブレーベルThe WormholeからのスプリットLP[Hard Core]を紹介している、主にコンクレート的手法を用いた過激な作風を得意とするRobin Warren & Chris WeaverによるデュオユニットHowlround。Aサイドにワイングラス、Bサイドはテープマシン自体の入力音を使った、編集、オーバーダブ無しの実験記録[Worm Food Delivery]。Aaron Dillowayを思わせる単調でササクレた反復がカッコ良い2曲。廃盤。
Both tracks produced by Robin The Fog at The Sticky Shed, Penge during lockdown 2020. Side A features a recording of a wine glass. Side B is created entirely from closed input s ounds of the tape machines themselves. One take, no edits, no overdubs, no artificial FX. Mastered by Steven McInerney. A.H.M.F. and long live the Wyrm.
Robin The Fog is a sound designer, radio producer, audio archivist, educator and occasional DJ based in London. His work falls under the broad term “radiophonics” and includes composition, sound installation, field recording and documentary. Best known as founder a nd chief strategist of “tape loop quintet“ Howlround, he also produces work alongside
DJ Food and Chris Weaver as The New Obsolescents and with Ken Hollings as The Howling.
Originally described as a “second wave hauntologist”, his current obsession is attempting to use closed-input feedback loops to create primitive techno, which is quite a long way from where he started. His biggest fear is being swallowed by a python, but living in
South London he appreciates the contingency is a remote one.
