-ctrl_vlv_023_-_Aikichi Kuboyama_-_Broken-

CONTROL VALVE #023 IS NOW READY FOR DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
http://www.controlvalve.net/

ARTIST: Aikichi Kuboyama
TITLE: "Broken"

bio: “The noise started at December 2009. Then, in 2010, I released a demo called "Two Untitled Tracks", this demo was released through Datahex Records. My first "real" album was, at first, a self-released cassette limited to 15 copies, but it's available through FFM Records, a now extinct netlabel for obscure music. 2011 started with an EP called "Conflict", presenting my best noise so far...”

proccess: “The equipment is cheap: lots of free software, casio, amp, mic and some funny things to bang on. I start with a wall and add lots of effects, in order to create a noise mess. But, I change my process very often, and I might just record something directly from keyboard or do the whole thing digitally. I like to call myself a live producer, because after getting all the sounds ready, I improvise the structures and watch how two sounds react together. To be honest, that's what makes it interesting.”

-3 tracks of harsh, unrelenting, textural dynamics from Japan
-as always.....

THANK YOU FOR DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!!

CONTROL VALVE #022 IS NOW READY FOR DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
http://www.controlvalve.net/

ARTIST: OTOLATHE
TITLE: "Mad Mountains of Rust"

"K. Paul Boyev's OTOLATHE project usually concentrates on studio improvisation. Spontaneity, randomness, and novel sound/noise textures are emphasized. He read Xenakis' Formalized Music once and prefers to think it was ghostwritten by Andy Kaufmann. He prefers to base his musical forms on the obscure taoist martial art called Baguazhang, although he rejects the tyranny of the numbers four and eight.”

“This work was realized using all analog sources with the exception that an Alesis Bitrman was used.  It was recorded to 1/2" Quantegy GP9 analog tape."

 

- i would file this stellar work somewhere in the genre of, oh, well,
i don’t know... avant-improv-synth-drone-glitch-core!?!?!!!

ARTIST: Wjiik og chefkirk

TITLE: “we love ginger candy”

Wjiik - “editing and eq-ing in audacity + mixing in premade samples (analogue, digital and too much different ways of working for me to remember it all)"

chefkirk – “digitally processed no-input mixing board feedback”

“we love ginger candy” is an old/new-school e-mail collaboration between Wjiik, also known as Torstein Wjiik (see ctrl_vlv_003), or Kjetil Hanssen from Oslo, Norway and chefkirk who is Roger H Smith from Eugene, Oregon (see ctrl_vlv_012)

“Kjetil sent me 1 long session of sounds meant to be cut up and used as some sort of source material, I thought the session was great on its own, as a whole, so I just added some digitally processed no-input mixing board feedback in the mix. What we have here is one, almost, 18 min. piece of faux-electro-acoustic-digital-crud-concrete. Hmm…. Really??? Sure, I think this is great, but I may be a bit biased.”

"Gameboy maestro Lissajou describes c-c like so:

Bristling with celebrity angelism more powerful than any voodoo candle ever cast, Colombia's red green selector showcases flickery, blitzot in jitterfunk fashion, totally denying you any possible chance of not dancing ever. c-c vibe is the sweetest vibe, hardcore stroboscopic vibe, vibe sampling everything in the world vibe, wickedest fire-breathing ski mask dragon vibe, juke you vibe body (BUFFERING 69 % COMPLETED) vibe. Brush your shoulders off."

Recorded live at Beep South 2, an 8 bit electronic fest organized by Ocelotilator and Electronic SubSouth on August 29, 2009 at The Laboratory in Gainesville, FL.

title: a few in venice

"Recorded in Venice, FL in the early summer of 2009, bored, blasted."

-i've had this stuff on my hard-drive for a very long time, it just took me that long to figure out how to upload said track in its entirety to my server. duh...... anyways, this is one excellent track encompassing a full-spectrum of sounds from high-pitched feedback to low-end drone to machine-like grinding sputters. "instrumentation for a few: homebrew synth modules with some voice/microphone action" just the kind of thing you would expect from mr. zarzutzki who's main instrument is the "no-output turntable", a great improvisational artist. learn more here

-I met Thomas after I played a live gig at the HörBar im B-Movie, back in March 2010, we exchanged some words and traded some Cd's, Thomas told me he also worked with the no-input mixing board, I took those Cd's home and after a few months, finally listened to them, thoroughly enjoyed them, then contacted Thomas and asked him to submit some material to ctrl.vlv
"NATURE IS DIRT" is a 22 minute EPIC Thomas made with a "Linux computer system and pre-recorded no-input mixer sound"

title: Rock Roll

"...as far as the info goes, just say we're an NC duo  comprised of august trager and carl kruger, and the tracks were taken from live sets in '09'/10"

Nipple Stools is from Wilmington, NC.
A duo comprised of Carl Kruger (Carl Kruger, Baby Daddy, Caucasians) and August Trager (Somnaphon, Food World).
I have been a HUGE fan of Carl's solo work for years (see ctrl_vlv_001 "Howling Hum")
and recently I was introduced to August's excellent solo works as Somnaphon (see ctrl_vlv_015 "Attempt Place").
What could I expect from this newly formed duo?
Well, lets just say, "2 great tastes, that taste great together"
Yeah, uhm......

title: Attempt Place

"The songs on Attempt Place were constructed from audio created,found and/or stolen in North and Central America 2009-2010, functioning as mnemonic diagrams of a sacred landscape.

----------------------------------

Somnaphon is the solo project of A. Traeger.

Somnaphon simply makes things.

In addition to creating, performing and self-releasing work as Somnaphon,

A. Traeger is also part of the noise duo Food World, collaborates with various living humans, runs his record label Ack Recordings, and is an active participant in the art community in Wilmington, NC."

Created by A. Traeger
Source audio created/found/stolen in Central America & USA 2009-2010.

-i first heard August's work as part of the duo Food World, i knew of Somnaphon thanks to Carl Kruger, also part of the "scence" in Wilmington, NC ((910noise)ect....) this past May, i had the chance to meet/talk/perform with August at some burning fest. inside of an inflatable-bubble-tent, whoa....... anyways, we exchanged some cd's and words, i really enjoyed what i'd heard on those Somnaphon cd's, so much, that i asked August to submit some new material for release on ctrl_vlv.

the result is this, "Attempt Place", i can say, i am very happy to release, this,  another gem for all of you, free to download, this material is a shinning example of what ctrl_vlv. is, and what is aspires to be!

so, what is it?

what does it sound like??

well,....., to me, a perfect mix of found sound, field recordings, glitch, noise, and processing!

MUY PERFECTO!!!!
