Building Instrument are a group that are satisfyingly hard to pin down: they throw together combinations of (say) zither, kazoo, percussion and electronics, and it’ll coalesce into some mystical song-atmosphere. Nicely done. Some of material on second album Kem Som Kan A Leve was written with Kurt Schwitters in mind, and was debuted at the opening of an exhibition of his work. Out on Hubro.
Starting with a collection of sounds, Labfield slowly organizes their tracks, throwing in crazy, whispering, stalking, are-they-really-there? vocals over an otherwise pleasant polyrhythmic beat. Bucket of Songs features improv-scene favorites David Stackenals, Ingar Zach as well as new member Giuseppe Ielasi and offers tastes from all over the avant-garde taste pallet.
1982 (Nils Okland, Sigbjorn Apeland, Oyvind Skarbo)
