Artist: CORNER, PHILIP
Title: Gong/Ear: Shaman
Format: CD
Label: The Wormhole
Country: UK
Price: $15.00
"Philip Corner (b. 1933) is an American composer, musician and visual artist. A founder member of Fluxus, his teachers include Henry Cowell and Olivier Messiaen, and he has performed with George Maciunas, Yoko Ono and Nam June Paik. While on military duty in Korea in 1960-1961 he studied calligraphy with Ki-sung Kim and many of his works have calligraphic scores. His wide-ranging output includes works for gongs, bells, metal percussion and gamelan orchestra. Philip Corner writes, "Hiah Park - new age shaman, then living in California. My Korea connection interest led me to a workshop she gave in New York; more sessions continued until the opportunity of really working together at the proposed seminar Art and the Invisible Reality to be held in Bavaria. I revisited my old practice of metal meditations specially reinterpreted to go with performance/dance derived from traditional shamanic practices. Then done in Trento in front of the cathedral where we joked about when they burned witches. After the two performances in Europe our association came to an end. Sin Cha Hong, a great friend in New York and a fabulous dancer and choreographer with a truly profound and intense body-incorporated physicality serving a spiritual content in no need of official status. Her Korean-American company she called Laughing Stone; she used my anklung (Javanese bamboo rattles) quartet gamelan Adagio onstage for one of her solos... This recording I made alone in the New York loft with my familiar - the large Paiste tam-tam: while holding her in my mind. The dancer/shamans are, as their names show, from Korea - the country par excellence for this ancient form of religion incarnate. I have had a long a long continuing and most appreciative relationship to that countrys culture, from 1960 when shipped as a trombones-man to the American occupying forces there and turned on each afternoon listening to National (Kuk Ahk) Music Hour their theme song Su Je Chun - the most ancient piece from the court repertoire which I have never stopped hearing as the most beautiful music ever made. That, and the breakthrough composition Sang-Teh/Situations which written and performed in Seoul in 1961, made this meeting and working with a genuine Korean shaman a spectacular amplification of my rapport. It was the beginning of the years-long improvisation-meditation practice shared with many other dancers, including most notably Phoebe Neville, soon to become my wife, and still is." - The Wormhole.

Artist: CORNISH, DALE & PHIL JULIAN
Title: Laughing Out
Format: 7"
Label: The Wormhole
Country: UK
Price: $13.00
“Dale Cornish and Phil Julian provide three tracks from which emerged from a rehearsal session in South Croydon. "Laughing Out" is the duos sing-along summer anthem and shares some DNA with "Love Cant Turn Around" as re-imagined by a balding chap with a distrust of the dancefloor. "For Vocal" appears to be a recording of people moving pallets of ride cymbals wrapped in tin-foil around a warehouse but its hard to say, really. "Palazzo" = a computer minding its own academic business + some curmudgeonly American test equipment + some honeypot crooning = not a dry seat in the house.” - The Wormhole.

Artist: WILLIAMS, PAUL H
Title: Fallen to Earth
Format: 7"
Label: The Wormhole
Country: UK
Price: $13.00
“Industrial space rock recorded in Beckenham one weekend in the winter of 1981.” - The Wormhole. "Making my own cut-ups and finding meaning in the collision of medical and science texts with newspapers and magazines. There were four tracks on the Tascam Portastudio to play with and - after tweaking a Korg synth, re-wiring my mates electric guitar with multiple versions of the same string and discovering the joy of turning the cassette over so you could record in reverse - Id produced four chunks of sound." - Paul H Williams.

Artist: WINER, LESLIE
Title: Leslie Winer &c.
Format: CD
Label: The Wormhole
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"Leslie Winer &c. brings together tracks from the first two decades of Leslie Winers extensive yet little-known body of work. The earliest pieces, recorded in the late 80s, appeared on her debut solo album Witch (Transglobal/Rhythm King, 1993). First issued as a white label pressing in 1990 and featuring Jah Wobble, Karl Bonnie, and Helen Terry, the album earned Winer the distinction "grandmother of trip-hop." After the official release of Witch in 1993, Winer all but disappeared from public view, making only sporadic guest appearances on releases by such varied artists as John Hassell (1994), Bomb The Bass (1995), and Mekon (2000). While she has continued to record throughout the 90s and 00s, little of Winers work has surfaced, until now. Some of the material from the two albums she cut in the mid-1990s with Joe Galdo at South Beach Studios in Miami appeared in 2010 on The Tapeworms release & That Dead Horse. Other tracks from these projects and her collaborations with Vincent Gallo appear here for the first time. Throughout her career, Winer has worked with artists as divergent as Holger Hiller, Carl Michael von Hausswolff, and Dale Cornish and her songs have been recorded by Sinéad OConnor, Boy George, and Grace Jones. Her most recent collaboration with French musician and producer Christophe Van Huffel, Purity Supreme, resulted in a four-track vinyl EP Always Already, released by Ash International. Leslie Winer &c. is a product of The Wormhole. Housed in a 9"x6" PVC sleeve with poster." - The Wormhole.
