Frescos nº 2, Maio de 2016
A swing for sound
A série Frescos pretende embarcar dois mundos numa edição; por entre camadas e tons, o definir de uma concretização desdilui-se.
Na secura da forma o significado escorrerá.
The Frescos series pretends to embark two worlds in one edition; through textures and tones, the defining of a concretion dedilutes.
On the dryness of the form the meaning will drain.

Dibson T Hoffweiler is a man on the move. Before his stint in the Bay Area, Dibson was a fixture in the New York Anti-Folk scene of the turn of the century. His recent move to Sebastopol, a small rural town in Northern California, prompted this new album, which we are proud to feature as the latest installment for our Editions Littlefield sub-label.
As the careful reader might guess from the title, one half of Oakland to Sebastopol was recorded in Oakland, the other half in Sebastopol, each side front-loaded with an upper-harmonic-exploring “Enneagram Study.” Occasionally, rural soundscapes or roommates rummaging through the kitchen will weave their way through Hoffweiler’s pastoral finger-picking. Oakland to Sebastopol is emotionally charged and sentimental without giving in to overwrought saccharinity.
Hoffweiler’s guitar playing is agile and considered, his straight-forward song structures emphasize his technical skills without being overpowered by them. First the time on his solo guitar material, he is joined on select pieces by instrumentalists Sarah Stanley and Andrew Weathers providing simple adornment to the already lush sound.
On Oakland to Sebastopol, Hoffweiler captures the fleeting, intimate moments that give meaning to our rote, daily activities with a delicate touch and sensitivity not quite equalled among the current crop of young American Primitive revivalists.

Hot on the heels of Sacred Phrases’ re-press of 2014’s ambient classic ‘Treehut Visions,’ Guenter Schlienz is back with a new cassette of sublimely sprawling sounds. ‘Augenblicke’ continues the Stuttgart, Germany-based producer’s run of astral-minded naval-gazing with four new tracks of impossible serenity. Opening track “Blue Sky” paints a perfectly bucolic picture of the German countryside, accompanied by a barely noticeable breeze and consumed by boundless, naturalistic beauty. B-side opener “Treetops” coasts on an elevated plane of floating effervescence, taking in an aural panorama that pours well beyond comprehension. “The World Is Full of Noises” serves as a perfectly incidental miniature, surveying a series of field recordings and playing out like a charmed audio travelogue. Closing track “Wind on Water” succinctly returns to the pleasantly disembodied celestial realms, closing out ‘Augenblicke’ in a calmed, transcendental state.
Now available in its second edition, Guenter Schlienz’s ‘Treehut Visions’ serves as a poignant and sincere example of modern. synth-based kosmische musik. Recorded in Stuttgart, Germany using a DIY modular synthesizer in the Spring of 2013, Schlienz follows the tried and true templates sketched out by the likes of Cluster, Terry Riley, and other early modern electronic pioneers and rubbing shoulders with contemporaries like Panabrite, Eluvium, and other long-form revelers in exploratory sounds. “Games at the Creek” kicks things off with rustic curiosity, flowing through space like a sonic creek littered with stray bits and bubbling tones. “The Meadow at Summernights” floats with unencumbered bliss, collecting streaks of texture and glittering effects along its meandering path. “Sunday Morning Cake” closes out the A-side with an extended simmer of cool, flowing sound and genuine, nu-age navel gazing. On the B-side, “Treehut Visions” unfurls its sprawling vignette for a full half-hour of heaving synth chords and assuringly avian found sounds. It’s a modern classic of synthesizer music, available once again on cassette.
