Artist: ADAM, NIKLAS
Title: A3 & B
Format: LP
Label: BIN
Country: Denmark
Price: $22.00
"Among numerous small run releases A3&B is the debut LP release by Niklas Adam. Recorded and mixed in the summer and fall of 2009 in East Jutland. A3&B represents a change in Adams early practice with electronic music, which during 2008 was intervened by a focus on near-static and reductionistic acoustic music. In addition to exploring the two sided format of the vinyl, A3&B investigates emptiness, perception of time and focus fatigue as primary compositional elements. Favoring the progress of occurrences and textural over tonal development A3&B is equal active environment and static object.

Niklas Adam works with performance- and installation art in addition to music. Runs the shared studio space ILS FYKSI, producing music for himself and others. Adam has been active in the improvised music scene for several years, touring and working in Europe, Japan, Russia and the US. He has collaborated with Mattin, Toshimaru Nakamura, Jim Denley and Anders Vestergaard among others, and is a part of the Norwegian artist group Verdensteatret, in which he works with sound, programming and electronics. Adam also forms part of the trio Tigers Mind." niklasadam.oddodd.org

Title: FELT
Format: LP
Label: BIN
Country: Denmark
Price: $22.00
180 G vinyl in mirrorfoil cover. Limited edition of 300 copies. "The album FELT is the result of a joint effort of the composers and artists Rune Søchting and Jonas Olesen. In their collaborative work they have explored the sonic potential of electromechanic movements, resonance and different modes of transmission of sound. This work has been presented at a number of concerts and can now be experienced on the vinyl release FELT. In their artistic investigation they have focused on the unpredictable effects that emerges in unstable systems. Their work have integrated unconventional objects and electroacoustic processes such as transducers mounted on glass, worn-out microphones, small devices such as bells, clocks etc. The various elements have been mounted and connected in often fragile structures through an ad-hoc approach. The unique and temporary structures have proven to exhibit often surprising sonic qualities that have been picked up by various types of microphones and coils. The resulting sonic imprints of the tiny movements and fluctuations have then been dramatically amplified and subsequently channeled through other objects that have served as acoustic and strange resonant “containers”.

Overall, the sonic material on the album FELT unfolds in a dynamic between something fundamentally alien while at the same time being remarkably organic and tangible. What is presented is a strange sonic field that the listener is invited to explore. While a general characteristic of the quality of the material is of something ephemeral and the unstable the resulting state is one of sustained tension, a bit like a spinning top that has lost speed but maintains its movement, but in any moment can tilt and fall." - Rune Søchting.

Artist: POULSEN, KRISTIAN
Title: Plays
Format: 7"
Label: BIN
Country: Denmark
Price: $12.00
"Reissue of Kristian Poulsens 2009 ukulele playing, originally inspired by the paradoxical (self-effacing) status of the artistic subject of the creative act of John Keats, as analysed by Giorgio Agamben, where the badly connoted ukulele instrument meets philosophy, and the viewer/listener is forced into creative participation and self-contemplation via Olafur Eliasson. Ron Schneiderman described it as “two glorious sides of brain-dead plinking. Limited edition of 50 copies. Extreme heavy weight vinyl. Play at 16 RPM." - BIN.

Artist: SETTELS, ROBERTA
Title: Isolation!
Format: LP
Label: BIN
Country: Denmark
Price: $33.00
Reissue of the 1985 release, replicating the silk screened plastic cover of the original. Limited edition of 250 copies.

Subtitled “Meinhof in Memoriam,” this is the first and last solo release by Settels, who describes herself in her liner notes as a composer of “electronic music for spiritual survival.” Settels was born and raised in New York, where she studied composition before emigrating to Europe and getting involved with EMS/Fylkingen, working at IRCAM, and studying with Boulez and Xenakis (as described in the label write-up, below). She eventually built her own studio, and was behind every facet of this very fully-realized LP, from the music to the design, liners, and distribution. Alongside her academic credentials, the inclusion of an excerpt from this LP on the 1988 “Angelic Tecnology 1” comp— alongside Merzbow, Conrad Schnitzler, Asmus Tietchens, Bene Gesserit, P16D4, DDAA, the Haters, etc (put together by by Hironari Iwata of Toukaseibunshi, etc; see the attached image)— is probably telling…

“Roberta Settels (1929 - 2014) was an American composer and industrial designer, living in Stockholm, Sweden. She studied composition at Juilliard in New York, and during the 70s and 80s, composed electronic music in Stockholm at EMS, and in Paris at IRCAM, and studied with the composers Pierre Boulez and Iannis Xenakis. Later she created her own studio. “Isolation!” from 1985 is her only released recording. It was released on her private label Music in Crisis. Although Isolation was composed in 1985, most parts of it sound very fresh and contemporary. Very unique for its time, the timbres and formal progression of the work bare little resemblance to the electroacoustic maximalism of the period. Rather it shares aesthetics with contemporary genres such as lowercase and microsound. The music, all generated by pure analog means, contains elements of extreme minimalism and splicing-techniques derived from the tape-music tradition. Even though the work, making clever use of sine-waves and white noise, it is very minimal in its expression, and very clearly communicates the emotional states of lonliness and isolation which are its conceptual aim. The work is divided into four parts: Landscape With 3 tape-recorders And... , Scenario, Isolation (Meinhof In Memoriam) and P1 - Information?, forming a perceived whole. This release comes with a custom-made plastic sleeve, with cover-notes in Swedish, English, German and French, written and designed by the composer.” - BIN.

Artist: VIKTOR, KNUD
Title: Ambiances/Images
Format: Double LP
Label: BIN
Country: Denmark
Price: $37.00
Repressed at a lower price. "Overlooked and unheard Danish sound artist Knud Viktor (1924-2013) graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in Copenhagen as a painter. In the 1970s he moved to the Lub鲯n valley in southern France to paint the Proven硬 light and nature. However, Viktor left the painting as a medium and gradually moved towards recording the sounds of nature. He used the field recordings as raw material for a series of abstract electronic compositions, which also served as soundtracks for his own filmworks. A selection of these compositions were released in 1972 on the two records Images and Ambiances on the French label LOiseau Musicien. The records came in very limited editions, and therefore Knud Viktors works have remained largely unknown. With the re-issue of these records The Institute for Danish Sound Archaeology wishes to revitalize Knud Viktor and his important contribution to the history of sound art. The small sounds of nature Knud Viktor is recognized as an important figure in the field of sound art in France and he is regarded as a pioneer in field recording and acoustic ecology. During the 1970es he turned his house in Provence into one large mixing desk with a myriad of homebuilt microphones and cables spiralling into the surrounding landscape, and he would carefully record the sounds of snorring rabbits in their holes, the rhythmical songs of cicadas in the night – even termites gnawing through an old cupboard in the bedroom. Combined reissue of Ambiances and Images both originally issued by LOiseau Musicien in France 1972. Front and back reproduces the orginal cover art.

As the Danish writer Morten Sgaard writes in the text A Sonic Seismograph, which accompanies the release: “Light became sound. The most fascinating aspect of Knud Viktors world is perhaps that there is a universal coalescence of all things: of artistic expressions and natural science, of painting, sculpture and installation. A paintbrush becomes a microphone. Music becomes sound. A home becomes the mixing desk.” To s洮inger her, der afrunder Knud Viktor som lydg og det tv沭ediale perspektiv? By re-issuing Ambiances and Images The Institute for Danish Sound Archaeology hopes to contribute to a revitalization of Knud Viktors important work, and that more listeners will engage and lend their attention to these works, which they really deserve. The Institute for Danish Sound Archeology is an independent association with the overall purpose of uncovering and releasing historical Danish electronic music and sound art." - BIN.
