The Amy Grant Experiment

I know sometimes i neglect updating the blog with digital only downloads from bandcamp, and i apologize for that... but if you didn't hear about it yet, i will inform you now. While digging through my boxed up remnants of my old apartment, i found quite a few random tapes. I've been listening to these tapes to see if they are recyclable or not, and i have found quite a few with some of my recorded output on them. An older habit of mine, for when i recorded, was that i would route my mixer to a cassette player, before my usb recording hub. I very much liked the sound i got by doing that, well some time before i found out i could just leave it on pause, i'd just go ahead and burn through a tape. This tape marked Amy Grant "Lead Me On" is the source for this experiment.

I took the tape and played it back slowed down, and recorded the sound presented(that is pass one). I then took that audio recorded it to tape, and again played it back slowed down and recorded that. From there every couple of weeks i'll upload another pass...

Bootleggg cdr's

It's time to start up the Bootleggging idea again...

so, if there is something in my discography that you want a copy of (as long as i have a copy of what you want that is, i know some things i do not.) be it GRIZ+ZLOR, Cursed Aether, DVR, Mystic Soul Alliance, Muff Obsession, or even Failure of a Great Machine Stuff:

i will make a one-of-a-kind bootleggg cdr (set where applicable) for you.
prices will be approximately $4 per cdr shipped in the u.s. and  $6 everywhere else.

you can also check the bandcamp pages for stuff that was never really in print:

also in case you missed it,
my Imperial Noir Label has just released a couple of new items:

The Long Awaited?, The Reissue, and The New!

The Long Awaited?:
c-100 Type II Chrome

Lo-Fi HNW mud worship, again paying Homage to the Sovtek Big Muff Pi.
Many russian units were in servitude for  this outing.
There's really not much to say here, most won't like it, as it concentrates on a very specific sound.
But those that do will be heaven.
Limited to 21 copies, early birds get worms...

The Reissue:

c-95's Type II Chrome

original vocab:
glaciating is a noun (glacier) which becomes a verb, when used in the context of wall building.
glaciers are icy monuments which creep along slowly, exposing crevices in the surface.

no distortion (technically) and no muffs...
relatively cold sounding material, but it still has a bite of bitter crackling.

additional vocab:
Highbrow texture patterns...
not pure enough for the militants, but not variated enough to be JUST harsh noise, 
this time available as single cassettes, so HNW addicts can own both, 
and occasional texture freaks can own one...
good news is, if you buy one tape from bandcamp, you get all tracks in your favorite form of digital file (flac included)...

The New!:


Two HNW heavyweights combine to leave you hip deep in the trenchs...
First in a series of collaborations themed around Military Divisions...
not all will be with HNW peeps, so stay tuned...

review from Vital Weekly 791:

GRIZ+ZLOR  GLACIATING 1 & 2 ( 2 x  C-90's by Desiccated Husk)
Civilization, any civilization, is doomed because of the goldfish/castle phenomenon. This follows from an understanding of both Laurelle's non-philosophy and also from Deleuze's actualizations of the virtual. (I.E. The last instance for and of The One becomes only seemingly ever and ever present, not that it is, for it's a limit.) Memory and information, supplemented as it is now by the Wiki phenomenon brings with it the need to actualize phenomenon (create intensities) on global and Chaosmosic scales, the ability to instantiate and visualize, viralize the cosmos in
meta-phenomenonologies  and a kind of wishful thinking or ontologizing a real. The more we remember the more that there is to remember, - we remember to remember, place mark the place marks of a life, in other words as language is memory, differentiated memory capable of infinite flux, differentiations - Dx,Dy…or the empty set…  being as it, in itself is re-folded, music like everything else becomes more complex. Reality escapes us  in its superabundance, for example in the very act of reading say Joyce's Ulysses reality is mirrored and so escapes us in our inability to move into the mirrored world, we stand outside of it, suffering from but being aware and so scared - an Alzheimer's which is common to all systems of large dynamic memories… whereas it can distort, shape, enfold, endlessly re-reflect we remain static in front of it, only mentally as well as physically excluded. A tactic is to become a clone, a simulacra. Goldfish music is noise, yet one where even the cas
 tle has
been removed or destroyed in a granulation of sound. A sound of constant low static without synthesis so without time, so without  "ing", only the mundane reality outside of noise provides the real, rather than the complex illusions of mirror play - each telling the truth, each reflection univocally the world which is not noise. Thus HNW effectively walls off the mirror, or mirrors, like an opaque goldfish bowl of infinite size - being dimensionless, well 2x90 minutes here! though this 'time' can  only be given exterior to the work unlike musics internal clocks… and so becomes the limit as *reached*, leaving what could be called if we had a language- self, reality, the real, "This" (my favorite from java) but not The One, not being… better the Hollywood IT! or The Goldfish that is me.
