- Coda (for wk) by Stephan Mathieu
8/10 Phil Staff review, 16 October 2012
The last thing I heard by this guy was the Remain CD on Line which was one of the most intense things I’ve heard. It proper blew me away! Here’s a rare CD single by him on the 12k label (who also don’t do singles that much. This came out as a stupidly expensive vinyl version a while back on Minority Records which we were gonna stock but it ended up being stupidly expensive! So you’ll have to make do with this!
It’s a single 20 minute long piece of music created using two mechanical acoustic gramophones and computer. ‘Coda (For WK) is dedicated to Wilhelm Kempff (a minimal pianist whose recordings of Beethoven’s piano sonata No 26. Les Adieux from a double 12” 78rpm set were used for an autogenerative process). The sound has an intense grainy sound and with most of his work that I’ve heard, it sounds heavily processed. It’s one long drone track (with plenty going on) which does remind me of the Remain CD in its intensity. I’ve never really heard anyone else make sounds and noises like this. It’s very rich and textured sounding with layer upon layer of complex fuzzwork creating this unique sound. Behind the processed fuzz are some rich drones and tones which add melody and richness. Grainy!
