Artist: HAGGART, SCOTT
Title: 117
Format: LP
Label: Diskono
Country: UK
Price: $13.00
"DISKONO 017 is a 45rpm 12" conceptual LP by Scott Haggart titled "117" . The A-Side Scott Haggarts original edit is "psychotopologically derived from a 0.7 millisecond recorded extract of a DISKONO performance (2000)." Six others (SCOTT HAGGART, EVOL, FELIX KUBIN, LARY SEVEN, CHARLIE MCALISTER, JAN VEN DEN DOBBELSTEEN) created alternate versions (resulting in seven total variations). Strict adherence was required to a rule of the versions being 1:17 seconds in duration, so as to absurdly explore the potentials of this 0.7 millisecond sound. Keywords : analog, feedback, fridge, beauty, horror sound pressure levels, implode. note : The performance is inspired by the presence of Diskono in Eindhoven, 2003 where they held a transatlantic telephone interview with PHIL MILSTIEN at the opening of the exhibition I AM A CAMERA (a JaDa-Jan Van Den Dobbelsteen/Danielle Lemaire concept-curators, also behind the telephone piece). Founded in the spring of 1998 and described as a "a Scottish multi media cabal masquerading as a record label" , DISKONO was initially based in Central Scotland but befitting its constitution as a complex carbohydrate, the constituent pieces of its chemical structure are now strewn all over the globe ; New York, London, Moscow, Brussels etc. The known and affiliated elements of Diskono were/are Klaus Oldanburg, Ruth Random, Findo Gask, Dr. Barnes Advocaat, Gunter Saxenhammer, Ttocshagg Forfib, Joel Ongthorne, Kosten Koper ; although these may be pseudonyms for the same person or persons. Together or alone, they / he / she operated a record label releasing sound art & "avant-garde flicks of the wrist" as well as curating savory pretentiously artistic projects such as the exhibition Revisionland by Alejandra and Aeron (which won an Award of Distinction in Digital Music at Prix Ars Electronia 2002) and physical remixseries of 7" records with Aerospace Soundwise and Prix Ars Electronica winner Janek Schaefer. Diskono also released music by blue-chip figures such as Felix Kubin, Alejandra and Aeron, Kid 606, Pimmon, Nomex, Ashtray Navigations, JaDa, People Like Us, Francisco Lopez, Boards Of Canada, Goodiepal, V/vm, Hrvatski, Aavikko." - Diskono.
