Artist: BRUSSELER PLATZ 10A-MUSIK/HAJSCH
Title: 1000 Fehler (1000 Errors)
Format: CD
Label: Suppose
Country: Germany
Price: $17.00
"The CD 1000 Fehler is a composition of spoken theory-fragments by Adilkno (Foundation of the Advancement of Illegal Knowledge/Amsterdam) and noise-improvisations by Brüsseler Platz 10a-Musik (Cologne). Being bored of academic culture pessimism the authors Geert Lovink, Arjen Mulder und Lex Wouterloot (Adilkno) are dedicated to illegal knowledge. Their books Cracking the Movement and The Media Archive are published by Autonomedia, New York. In their last book Elektronische Einsamkeit (Supposé 1997) they research degenerated tendencies of the roaring every day life in media. In ecstasy of speculation they try out all patterns possible and even the apocalypse is one scenario among others. After the fascination for the evil in the 80´s, nowadays failure is the most interesting phenomenon: “All hope theory could bring salvation should be eliminated. Theory is not care, nor is it a substitute for forgotten services and ideologies.” The members of Brüsseler Platz 10a-Musik are Georg Odijk (A-musik), Jan St. Werner (Mouse on Mars, Microstoria, Lithops) und Marcus Schmickler (Pluramon, Wabi Sabi). In their sessions and live performances they use generations of conventional analog and digital consumer electronics: Record player, tape recorder, CD-Player. The complex material of spoken words and music was arranged and mixed by Hajsch (Quit Artworks/Cologne)." - Suppose.

Artist: ROEHR, PETER
Title: Tonmontage
Format: CD
Label: Suppose
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
“Brilliant, hilarious concrete recordings from 1966 -- the only document available of Roehrs audio works. German language, but not that is not an obtrusive factor for general enjoyment. (For remixes of Roehrs work, see the Whatness label). "Original recordings by the artist, writer and musician Peter Roehr, who died in 1967 at the age of 23. Like contemporary artists and writers such as Andy Warhol and William S. Burroughs, Roehr experimented with the principles of cut-up, serialism and montage, but unlike them he was working with those principles in almost all available media: film, text, visual arts and music. For the first time the publisher Supposé (Cologne) makes original recordings by Peter Roehr available -- montages he made in 1966 with material from German Broadcast and American commercials. Stunning and highly entertaining archive recordings and a simple must for everyone interested in the history of soundart and experimentalism. Comes in digi-pak with design by Peter Roehr, compiled by Klaus Sander (Supposé) and Frank Dommert (Sonig)." - Suppose.

Title: 2:3 -- Oswald Wiener Zum 65. Geburtstag
Format: CD
Label: Suppose
Country: Germany
Price: $16.00
"An acoustic homage to the artist, poet and theorist Oswald Wiener from his friends, companions and fans. The inspiration for the different tracks was Wieners aesthetic of failure in the tradition of the Wiener Gruppe (The Vienna Group) and of his selten gehörte Musik (rarely heard music) records with Gerhard Rühm and Dieter Roth. “Together we have attempted an aesthetic of failure, an aesthetic of incompetence. And this is a very painful aesthetic, an aesthetic of embarrassment, disgrace and limitation. But because the main thing is to seize and to emotionally affect the listener, there is of course this disgrace and embarrassment as a kind of emotion and as a play with ones own weakness…” With original tracks from: Thomas Brinkmann & Marcus Schmickler, Valie Export & Ingrid Wiener, Nihilist Spasm Band, Mouse on Mars, Ira G. Wool, Wolfgang Müller (Die tödliche Doris), Gerhard Rühm, Hubert Fichte, Mario Subassis, Michel Würthle, Rolf Graf, Franz Josef Czernin, Attersee, Rosa Pock, H. C. Artmann." - Suppose.

Artist: V/A
Title: Okkulte Stimmen Mediale Musik
Format: 3 CD Box Set
Label: Suppose
Country: Germany
Price: $65.00
Recordings Of Unseen Intelligences 1905-2007. "No comprehensive collection of audio documents of paranormal phenomena has been published so far. This audio box consists of three CDs. The first contains examples of trance speech, direct voices and clairvoyance. The second CD contains recordings of xenoglossy and glossolalia, including ethnological material. The third CD presents paranormal music, rappings, and other poltergeist manifestations as well as so-called Electronic Voice Phenomena. Although occult phenomena are an integral part of cultural history, their reality is discussed controversially. For the recordings collected here, the question was not so much whether such phenomena are real or manipulated, illusion or deception, supernatural-otherworldly or simply of human nature. They are rather presented as authentic documents with their particular atmosphere and their characteristic intensity. Our goal was to demonstrate, with a phenomenological overview, the audible diversity and the width in form and content of such phenomena. Some of the audio examples could hardly be categorized because paranormal events admit different interpretations. For instance, when is a poltergeist case a case of possession, or vice versa? Or how clear and reliable is the distinction of xenoglossy and glossolalia? This collection is decisively determined by the availability or sparseness of the material. Only for Electronic Voice Phenomena there is a cornucopia of examples; most other documents, such as the recordings of mediumistic seances before the second world war, are unique rarities." - Andreas Fischer, Thomas Knoefel (from the liner notes). Includes 40-page booklet. Recordings include "Voices From Possessed Children: Janet (11) and Margaret (13)" (1978), "Minnie Harrison And The Christmas Party Sitting: Sam Speaks Through Trumpet.; Douglas Materialises and Speaks" (1954), trance-breathing from the 1930s, "compositions from the other side, received, recorded or played via spiritualist mediums" and a lot more to keep you up at night.
