Dale Cornish & Phil Julian
Croydon Kings Dale Cornish and Phil Julian consummate their friendship with this tasty 7” single on Tapeworm non-tape spin-off sub-label The Wormhole. Laughing Out is pop music as reimagined by proper sound-weirdos, with attitude-laden Cornish spoken-word and stutter Julian fizz everywhere. Rare-sounding stuff.
Dale Cornish and Phil Julian are renowned for a number of solo works on a variety of labels. Dale Cornish was intrigued by the Hewlett Packard test tone generator that Phil Julian had recently acquired. Dale Cornish wrote the words and sang them over Phil Julian’s HP generated electronic noises to create Two Warhol's Worth.
Two Warhol’s Worth is available on cassette.
Someone let abstract-electronics-expert Phil Julian into the EMS (Elektronmusikstudion) studio in Stockholm! I can only dream of the delicious range of sound machines one might find in a proper electroacoustic music studio like that… This LP on Harbinger Sound is the result of two weeks in residence at the EMS, and it sounds quite frankly gorgeous.
Between Landing brings together abstract electronics stalwart Phil Julian and the new-to-me Ben Owen, who is credited here with ‘Experimental Television Centre Recordings’. And if that hasn’t enticed you enough already, allow me to tell you that these three pieces began as improvisations and were then crafted afterwards into what you hear here. On Auditory Field Theory.
