IF14 – COLLAPSED ARC – ‘IN CURSIVE’ C20
Edition of 100. Kinetic blown out sound loops by Cleveland, Ohio sound and visual artist David Russell. Collapsed Arc finds Russell’s (Jerk, The David Russell Snake, Relentless Corpse) latest project immersed in an amalgamation of field recordings, contact mic experiments and appropriated vocal banter- masterfully melded together into loops of auditory chaos. Despite the non-musical nature of many of these sounds like any good pop song they lure you in. Disjointed sound sculpture for the musical masses.
IF15 – DEVELOPER – ‘IF15’ C30
Edition of 50. Harsh music concrete and tape assemblage from Matthew Reis. A prominent member of Ohio’s experimental music scene, Reis (Teeth Collection, Factotum Tapes) has become synonymous for his explorations of electro-acoustic music. First with his Teeth Collection project and now under the guise of Developer, Reis has moved into exploring the areas of tape-based harsh noise and music concrete. Reis’s style of improv tape music takes cues from Burrough’s cut-ups while forging a new kind of (harsh) experimentation.
