    Bruce McClure is well known on the international experimental film circuit for his unique projector performances that utilize film loops & modified 16mm projectors. But there is also an equally innovative sound element to his work and he has been embraced by the experimental music community as well. Bruce performed at the Chocolate Monk curated “Colour Out of Space” festival in 2008 and was chosen as an opening act for Throbbing Gristle’s reunion tour in the spring of 2009. During McClure’s performances the optical sound signals from each projector are fed through banks of guitar pedals, manipulated live, and played at extremely high volumes through the p.a. system. The different loops phase in and out of each other resulting in what could be described as a power electronics version of the early tape experiments of Steve Reich and Terry Riley, while sparser sections have an off-kilter minimal techno feel reminiscent of Plastikman and the early works of Thomas Brinkmann. This album features four excerpts from a professionally recorded performance in early 2009 at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN. Edition of 375 copies in heavy duty covers silkscreened by Monoroid.

    “You can not stop thinking. About 18, I finally calmed down, I thought I could stop thinking completely. I become a zombie for four years. Then, in a broken heart, I started again. I came out of the “grip” that held me tight. I started hearing voices. I also tried to kill time. First, you must confess that it’s people like you and I believe that is broadcasting the idea. It is terrible. When I look around, I am someone who is the same idea with me. My idea is to broadcast. You can read our thoughts. The first is that we can consider a bad idea (like gender or a person’s weaknesses). Second, we believe that we have the power to make people read our thoughts, even if it is bad. Because it has the broadcasting of this thought, please consider why it is a lot of people. To hear any ideas you and I are thinking of and I thought of you. Some people think that for all this world, and you can hear what you think they are. The reason for this is that you can read the mind of everyone of us. There have been times when I have an idea that I will consider ‘evil’. I do not believe them, but I know they are in my own voice in my head. Then, I would think that they have been implanted by external forces trying to influence my behavior. I just do not want it to develop into something like I do not believe, my inner voice is your own or something like that.”

  • alice cohen – walking up walls – oesb

    $12.00 Add to cart

    “Walking Up Walls is the second solo album from long-time musician and visual artist Alice Cohen. In contrast to her previous studio efforts, these are raw home recordings with an intensely personal vibe. The sixteen short song-sketches alternate between densely layered shoegaze burners and shimmering, ethereal drifters. Exploring shadowy corners and using the musical equivalent of automatic writing — this was considered to be a sonic diary and not originally intended for release. For reference points think Pink Opaque-era Cocteau Twins filtered through the early ’90s lens of New Zealanders like Alastair Galbraith & Sandra Bell.”

    “Orange You Glad is the debut full-length LP from Julian Lynch, following a string of self-released cd-r’s and a recent split 7″ with his childhood friend and frequent collaborator Matt Mondanile of Ducktails on the Underwater Peoples label. A talented multi-instrumentalist, Julian has had a busy summer playing countless shows both solo and as a member of Predator Vision, Ducktails, and Real Estate offshoot Alex Bleeker & the Freaks. This album is comprised of 4-track home recordings made in his hometown of Ridgewood, New Jersey and also in Madison, Wisconsin where he is a graduate student in ethnomusicology. His interest in Indian & South Asian music blossomed several years ago when he was living in Washington, D.C. and working for Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. This exposure to their vast library of world music has informed his output, and he blends instruments such as harmonium & tabla with guitar-rock instrumentation. Also of note is his use of circular breathing techniques on the clarinet — often a focal point during his meditative live shows.”
