CONTROL VALVE #046 IS NOW READY FOR DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
http://www.controlvalve.net/

artist: AODL
title: “Bed Store Morality”

 

1. Fell Anything! (from tip to shining tip)2
2. House of House and Wind

Bio/statement: "Fell Anything! (from tip to shining tip)" involved getting or denying the energy from the body (tip) to cable (shining tip), through an array of envelope followers, FM synthesis, vacuum tube waveshaping, arpeggiating octave fuzz, etc; balancing acts of instability surround, gate, and measure the cocksure flow.

"House of House and Wind" is a reminder to duck and cover; a dance party in the time-split heart of an atomic blast.

Recorded by J. Shell for AODL at Sunhil, Salt Lake City UT, Spring 2013.

Jeffrey Paul Shell for The Audio ELW, Eucci, and AODL: Finest musique concréte, electro-acoustic, and harsh noise furnishings since 1994.

-ctrl_vlv_042_-_The Kingston Family Singers_-_First Grand Ashlar-

CONTROL VALVE #042 IS NOW READY FOR DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
http://www.controlvalve.net/

artist: The Kingston Family Singers
title: “First Grand Ashlar”

Bio/statement: Musical/Sound/Video based entity of Belleville, IL, USA based multimedia organization, MaxCorp Industries.

Current Members: Maxwell Ullyses Kingston, S.H. Kingston, Walter Kingston

Album Concept/Process: Normally, the Kingston "noise recording" process is live, no overdubs, and only minor dynamic corrections (compression, limiting, etc) afterwards, if needed.

However, for this project, a different strategy was employed; numerous "field recordings" all 5 minutes in length, were recorded within the time of one day. Some of these recordings included S.H. walking out of work, walking through Wal-Mart, a haphazard and a more monitored recording of drumming, singing bowls, sequenced Moog synth, etc. On top of this, a 10 minute or so noise set was recorded. These recordings were all pieced together by Maxwell. The intent was to try and hew something of form out of the amorphous; all the things that were happening around us, both the things planned by us and not.

Perhaps it is not the perfect ashlar, but each consecutive stroke of the mallet to the chisel is one step closer to the Light.

-ctrl_vlv_040_-_Marlo Eggplant_-_Crisis As Opportunity-

CONTROL VALVE #040 IS NOW READY FOR DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
http://www.controlvalve.net/

artist: Marlo Eggplant
title: “Crisis As Opportunity”

1. hatred.under.surface
2. chump.change
3. scraping.up.and.out
4. escape
5. blunted
6. tinder
7. clawfeet

Recorded in a Northeast PDX basement, March 2012. Originally released by Corpus Callosum Distro in a limited edition cassette run of 25.

Bio/statement: “Marlo Eggplant is a prominent figure in a thriving and diverse international scene of female experimental music performers. As curator of the pioneering Ladyz in Noyz compilation series, an ongoing project from 2008 to the present, she has helped to foster this scene and continues to promote emerging artists from around the world on her record label Corpus Callosum. With an intuitive command of minimal instrumentation, including processed autoharp and contact microphones, Marlo Eggplant's sparsely structured notes and layered static textures build into sonically dense drone improvisations.

Receiving childhood classical training in voice, guitar, piano, and cello, Marlo began her solo musical career in the 1990s favoring folk and punk, playing local coffee shops and arty hangouts as a teen. When she attended college in the Berkshires, she became more interested in avant garde and bizarre musics. A burst of raw creativity in the early 2000s brought the playful lo-fi pop experiments of the first recordings released under the name Marlo Eggplant, concurrent with her disjointed trance-like drumming as half of the deconstructionist rock duo Hazardous Guadalupe, and her co-founding of the Spleencoffin record label with Timothy Wisniewski in 2003.”

- 7 tracks of sparsely structured notes + layered static textures
