Really amazing group of artists in collaboration and/or remixing one another. Purchase benefits a good cause. Im excited to give it a listen and report back on my favorites
"All the funds generated by the sales of this album will be donated directly to City Plaza Hotel, a squatted refuge located in the heart of Athens, Greece, organized for and by migrants from Africa and Asia. These funds will support their struggle to provide material needs for those fleeing economic, environmental, political and military disasters in their home countries. At City Plaza Hotel residents work together in ways that center their own agency, dignity and solidarity with each other.
This compilation in no way claims to represent the voices of refugees and migrants, nor does it represent the scores of incredible musicians from the Middle East, North Africa or Central America whose communities are being disrupted by mass migration. Rather, the artists participating in this compilation recognize that their lives and art have benefitted from the relative ease with which they are able to move across borders, performing for international audiences and developing relationships across cultures. Some of the artists involved are the children of immigrants, or have their own experiences of migration and relocation. All of them share a belief in a basic freedom of movement and stand in solidarity with those migrants and refugees who are struggling to make a better life for their families and themselves. "
100 copies on white vinyl: kouhei_asmus_white.jpg
Limited edition split 12" curated by Kouhei Matsunaga. Side A features two new tracks from the legendary
German sound artist Asmus Tietchens. Side B features two new pieces from Kouhei Matsunaga. 500 copies. First
100 copies are on color vinyl.
Last summer Important released some highly praised records with Kouhei Matsunaga including a collaborative
CD with Sean Booth (Autechre) and Mika Vainio (Pan Sonic), a split LP with Mika Vainio and a full length
CD of his own solo work. The breath and quality of Kouhei's work was apparent across these three releases
and his compositions for this split LP serve to create connections between his beat based work and his more
abstract soundscapes. Kouhei's most recent solo work was just released by Skam.
Asmus Tietchen's contributions to contemporary electronic music is immense. The two pieces making up his side
of the record have been sculpted from stochastic sequences of pure sine waves as well as guitar samples given
to him by Dirk Serries (Fear Falls Burning) not for the purpose of collaboration but for processing purposes.
Sonic events orchestrated by a sonic master.
