Artist: FENNELLY, JAIME / W.O.O. REVELATOR
Title: Splitting Series #2
Format: LP
Label: Happy Zloty
Country: Germany
Price: $16.00
"Jaime Fennelly is an electronicist from Brooklyn, New York implicitly interested in sonic feedback and the perverse use of electro/acoustic objects within performance groups including Pee in My Face with Surgery (with visual artist/musician Fritz Welch) and psi (Fritz Welch and guitarist Chris Forsyth). Since 2001, Jaime has been collaborating with choreographer/dancer Miguel Gutierrez on several projects including their improvised duet Sabotage as well as their most recent piece, dAMNATION rOAD which premiered in January 2004 at The Kitchen, NYC. A residency at STEIM (Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music) last year, spawned Jaime⿿s duo with Swiss/UK drummer Nicolas Field. Other collaborators include Chris Heenan, Sean Meehan, Naval Cassidy and John Jasperse. W.O.O. Revelator are Bonnie Kane (Sax) and Chris Forsyth (guitar) from New York. In 1988, the W.O.O. Core of Bonnie Kane and drummer Ray Sage magnetically connected with electric guitarist Chris Forsyth. The recordings on the Splitting Series are the result of Chris and Bonnies european tour in 2002 (Ray Sage is not involved), a unique and intense free-form conversation between sax and guitar." - Happy Zloty.

Artist: HORMANN, VOLKER
Title: Jungle Guitar Music
Format: 7"
Label: Happy Zloty
Country: Germany
Price: $6.50
"-Working partly with atonal playing techniques, Volker Hormann creates a kind of impressionistic program music on this 7". The title track provides an audible jungle atmosphere, made with several layers of fx-pedaled guitars. Everythings there: the trees in the wind, animals and whatnot. Hen Music, the first track on the b-side is inspired by the way chickens move and search for food. The thing is, what Hormann really does here is creating free rhythmic structures and hilarious, picturesque sounds that leave much space for endless association. Oswaldo, the lyrical second track on the b-side comes up with an entirely different, pretty melodic approach. Played on a regular concert guitar, this song moves in between minor harmonies and the rough and cold sounds the steel strings produce. What a highly interesting contrast..." - Happy Zloty.

Artist: PERLONEX / JULIJUNI
Title: Splitting Series #1
Format: LP
Label: Happy Zloty
Country: Germany
Price: $16.00
"This vinyl only release is the first in German label Happy Zlotys limited edition Splitting Series. Its a similar idea to the Fat Cat series of 12"s-the two improvising trios Perlonex and Julijuni are each given a side apiece. Perlonex are Ignaz Schick on various objects, turntables etc, Jörg Maria Zeger on guitar and Burkhard Beins on percussion, all musicians who are active in various other improvising contexts. The Perlonex side begins with a drone and delicate, looping guitar arpeggio before heading into a post-industrial, post-AMM landscape full of feedback, clanking chains and unidentifiable scrapes and thuds. The piece gathers density as it moves along, becoming a thickly matted assembly of sounds, with a guitar loop as a constant. Perlonex are a cohesive unit and they all pull in the same direction when they play, producing a commited and intense piece of group communication. Julijunis sound sources are Powerbook, feedback and guitar, coming from Michael Rieken, Tim Tetzner and Ansgar Wilken respectively. Their three tracks are airier but less assured then the Perlonex side. As with Perlonex, recognisable guitar sounds are set against abstract, untuned noises. The music is light-footed and shifts readily from episode to episode. Their sense of space steers them away from thick textures. The guitar is again used gracefully but the laptop occasionally sound sluggish compared to the other sound sources. The music is fitfully engaging but none of the pieces quite hangs together as a fully on-the-boil performance." - WIRE, Will Montgomery, May 2004.

"Olaf Rupp was born in 1963. At the age of twelve he began to play guitar.

He played with Paul Lovens, Rudi Mahall, Sainkho Namtchylak, Aki Takase, Toshimaru Nakamura, Wolfgang Fuchs, Butch Morris, Johannes Bauer, Jean Marc Montera and others. In the 90s he was mainly interested in improvised pop music in duos with drummer Hanno Leichtmann (EMAK BAKIA) and Stephan Mathieu (STOL).
