Artist: BOGNER, URSULA
Title: Recordings 1969-1988
Format: CD
Label: Faitiche
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"This is the debut release on Jan Jelineks label Faitiche: a collection of unheard electronic experiments from an unlikely source. Ursula Bogners was a pharmacist, wife and mother, and she was obsessed with electronic music -- an obsession that drove her to build her own studio for extensive recording and experimentation. Ursula Bogner was born in 1946 and raised in Dortmund -- she moved to Berlin at 19 to study pharmacy. She immediately went to work for pharmaceutical giant Schering, followed by marriage, children and a successful yet by no means sensational scientific career within the multinational heavyweight. At the same time, she developed a keen interest in electronic music. Throughout her early 20s, she followed the activities of Cologne-based Studio Für Elektronische Musik, attended seminars by Studio founder Herbert Eimert, exhibited great enthusiasm for musique concrète and, later on, shared her childrens enthusiasm for British new wave pop. Nevertheless, Ursula Bogner never involved herself in any scene, never made her music public. Besides composition, she also tried her hand at painting, printing (the booklet features reproductions of two of her linocuts) and developed a strong fascination for mysticism, esotericism, and Wilhelm Reichs "orgonomy," the psychoanalysts bizarre late work on his discovery of "orgonenergy" or life-force. Her compositions are studies and sketches: humorous and -- in view of her biography -- almost silly, rather than mystical or scientific. Nevertheless, it is remarkably hard to grasp or classify her work as a whole. Over the course of 20 years, she dabbled in many different styles, leading to a huge wealth of work and a bewildering variety of titles, from filter modulations, tuba tweaking, bass anthems, looping experiments, synth-pulse symphonies, to rhythmic patterns trapped in echo chambers. In the late 1960s, Ursula Bogner started to record her own music on reel-to-reel tapes. With some of these titles, Jelinek only found individual tracks of pieces recorded on a four-track-recorder -- in these cases, he had to recombine the separate tracks to recreate the original piece. Invoking the originals authenticity might seem insensitive, yet there was no other way to release them in their entirety. Ultimately, only three of the tracks featured on this CD/LP are such "reworkings." All other titles were taken straight from the original reels. Covering a fairly short period of her creative career, they also convey a peculiar coherence in both form and content. A coherence that reflects her accessible, rhythmic and sometimes even "poppy" side. An exhilarating find from a truly undiscovered electronic artist. The CD is housed in a smart-pack classic package by Herzog-Idex including a ten-sided booklet." -Faitiche

Title: Sonne = Blackbox
Format: CD/Book
Label: Faitiche
Country: Germany
Price: $40.00
"The world first learned of unknown housewife/mother/pharmacist/electronic experimentalist Ursula Bogners work in 2008. Since then, her identity has been surrounded by rumors, her graphic work has been exhibited (CEACC, Strasbourg, France, 2011 and elsewhere) and her compositional instructions have been performed (by Mo Loschelder, Andrew Pekler, Kassian Troyer, Jan Jelinek, among others). The release of Sonne = Blackbox brings together all of these aspects in one CD and book: compiled by Andrew Pekler, the CD presents Bogners early experiments with voice and tape music -- a previously-unknown, emotional side of her music is revealed here through her singing. The 126-page book contains, along with drawings, photos and other curiosities from Bogners life, an introduction by Jan Jelinek, texts by Momus, Andrew Pekler, Tim Tetzner and Bettina Klein as well as interviews with the orgone researcher JÃπrgen Fischer and the ethnographer Kiwi Menrath. Sonne = Blackbox attempts to locate Ursula Bogner, the sound experimentalist within broader cultural history. A central theme is the phenomenon of fake: how did the erroneous suspicion of fakery come about in the case of Ursula Bogner and what is a post-fake? Answers in this book. No Neo (Ursula Bogner, 1971, Maas Media Vol. 43, ISBN 978-3-940999-25-2); Deluxe edition in a card-box: with CD (FAITICHE 005) and book (MAAS MEDIA). Text in English/German; Introduction by Jan Jelinek. Texts by: Momus, Kiwi Menrath, JÃπrgen Fischer, Bettina Klein, Tim Tetzner, Andrew Pekler. Book and CD in card-box. Pages: 126; Bound: 14 x 21 cm with numerous photographs, drawings and compositional instructions. CD compiled by Andrew Pekler." -Faitiche.
