Artist: PBK & WOLF EYES
Title: Rabid
Format: LP
Label: Sonoris
Country: France
Price: $18.00
Rabid consists of six tracks mixed by Phillip B. Klingler, aka PBK, between 2004 and 2006 using Wolf Eyes source material, this is the Wolf Eyes lineup of 2000 to 2005: Nate Young, John Olson and Aaron Dilloway. Klingler: "I was given the audio sources (via cdr) by John Olson at the Ear Candy Festival in Dearborn, Michigan, in 2004. None of the compositions on the album were completed using a computer, they were all recorded live in my home studio or at gigs and radio shows directly to digital." Three of the pieces on the LP were previously released in Russia on the CD, Under My Breath in 2009. Also in 2009, the American Tapes label run by John Olson released a CDR of the PBK & Wolf Eyes collaborative tracks as part of the ongoing "Live Frying" series. Later, Rabid was available for a brief time as a net release. One review from the time stated: "Not a single track passes by without conveying grisly and creepy sensations of imminent death or disaster." Mastered for vinyl by Giuseppe Ielasi and with the beautiful cover illustration created by Pole Ka. American composer, Phillip B. Klingler, better known as PBK, has been active in the experimental music underground since 1986. His compositions are created using extreme turntable manipulation, sampling, analog and digital synthesis. Improvising spontaneously and with little preconception, PBK creates pulsing, dense soundscapes of unknown sonic origin. Wolf Eyes is a post-industrial/noise band from Detroit, Michigan. They are widely considered the "kings of US noise." "Their development since the earliest rumblings in 1997 has yielded some of the most staggering and genre-defining sounds of noise and sound arts dense, largely obscured history." - Allmusic.

Artist: RODEN, STEVE/IN BE TWEEN NOISE
Title: Every Color Moving (1988-2003)
Format: 6 CD Box
Label: Sonoris
Country: France
Price: $50.00
"Every Color Moving consists of six discs, covering seven hours of the first fifteen years of Steve Rodens musical activities. The first four discs contain unreleased works and impossible to find small editions. The last two discs offer a selection of tracks made for compilations during the same period. From the surprising early experiments to the development of his often imitated but never equalled "lowercase" aesthetic, these are some of Rodens earliest works, documenting numerous rare and unreleased recordings. The discs are accompanied with a 32 page booklet with an essay and extended track notes, written by the artist. Steve Roden (1964) is a visual and sound artist born in Los Angeles. Rodens work includes painting, drawing, sculpture, film/video, sound installation, and performance. Rodens earliest musical experience was as the singer of the Los Angeles punk band Seditionaries from 1978 to 1982, performing locally with some famous bands from this scene. Rodens early works moved from loud to quiet in the midst of an emotional crisis at age 18, fueling a shift in his work, with the discovery of Enos Obscure label. In the early -1990s Roden discovered the Broken Music catalog (an encyclopedic survey of records related to visual artists), offering a context for an artistic practice rooted in both visual and sound art. In 1990, Roden released his first recording on a self-released cassette titled the secret of happiness under the artist name In Be Tween Noise. Since then, Roden has released 45 solo recordings on various labels, alongside numerous collaborations and compilations. By the late 1990s, Roden began to use his own name as the artist of his solo recordings. Most of Rodens sound works tend towards using a singular source - such as objects, architectural spaces, field recordings, or texts. These things become abstracted through humble electronic processes to create new audio spaces, or "possible landscapes". In 2000, he used the term "lowercase" to describe a music that "bears a certain sense of quiet and humility". Over the years, he has created a rich and diverse body of work that is uniquely his own, mixing conceptual rigor, experimentation and musicality." - Sonoris.
