Die Schachtel Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Despite being known for his work in electro-acoustic music and with Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, Roland Kayn spent most of his musical career creating what he called Cybernetic Music, where music is created generatively using programming. This boxset celebrates one of his first Cybernetic works, Simultan, first released in 1972.
Seeing as he’s done the liner notes, this Norman Records™ description writer is going to presume that Dialoghi Del Presente is one of Jim O’Rourke’s favourite records. It’s easy to see how Luciano Cilio’s 1977 album would have appealed to the ex-Sonic Youth member. Emerging at the same time as Arvo Paert, Cilio’s style of composition aims for a similar beauty and clarity while eschewing the Estonian’s obsession with repetition.
A record fully built on percussion is surely something that should get remastered? Well, Lino Capra Vaccina by Antico Adagio has just been given the remastering treatment it so deserves. A quality six-track record originating from the hustled streets of Milan is now available on vinyl LP on Die Schachtel.
Rare electronics from the under-appreciated Italian electro-acoustic sound inventor Teresa Rampazzi. Immagine per Diana Babylon is a single piece, originally an accompaniment to an installation, so put it on in a white room and listen again and again! The analogue electronic piece is constantly changing, while also maintaining a droning backbone. 300 copies of this release, part of Die Schachtel’s ‘Silver Series’.
Opening your soul with Ensemble Dissonanzen. Dissonanzen is a big release from the Italian ensemble. They formed in Naples in 1993 and performed multiple works from a lot of modern composer - being touted as a serious group in the New Music scene. Full of acoustic instruments, they span a range of different aesthetics from contemporary world music and folky sounds through to dense avant-garde dissonance. Out as a 5 CD box set from Die Schachtel.
