A mainstay at the Mego label, and moving with them onto Editions Mego artist Hecker tests philosophy with sound art. Working with philosopher Reza Negarestani Hecker brings the third part of his text-sound works in A Script For Machine Synthesis. No real voices used, all words are synthesised and computer generated, with the script guiding you through as alterations are made. Stick this one on at a party, I dare you.
More scientifically-derived audio-insanity from master-of-this-sort-of-thing Florian Hecker. Similar to his Chimerization series, at the centre of these pieces lie voices reciting a text: in this case the speaker is the famed Joan La Barbara. Her voice is manipulated, juxtaposed against itself, made strange. Embrace the experience. On Editions Mego (no shit).
To modify a phrase of Kafka’s: it makes sense, but not to us… A text written by an Iranian philosopher is recited in three different languages (on three different releases), and the voice is severely treated by computer noise wizard Florian Hecker. It sounds pretty insane. This is the English version.
To rewrite a phrase of Kafka’s: it makes sense, but not to us… An Iranian philosophical text is recited in three different languages (on three different releases), and the voice is radically treated by big-deal digital noisician Florian Hecker. Complex, disarming, mind-boggling listening. This is the German version.
To rewrite a phrase of Kafka’s: it makes sense, but not to us… A text by Iranian philosopher Reza Negarestani is recited in three different languages (on three different releases), and Florian Hecker Heckerises the result in accordance with some dense psychoacoustic theory. Brilliant in other words. This version is in the original Farsi.
