Artist: JAEGER, KASSEL
Title: Aster
Format: Double LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $31.00
"The frontier for French electroacoustic mystical music has traversed much ground since Pierre Schaeffer shuffled on the past and laid out a map without borders or designated ground. Seventy years in this land of the fried, there are a plethora of Ideas and ongoing potential coming from all corners of the globe. Inheriting the wisdom of past masters whilst forging a signature style of his own, Kassel Jaeger sits as one of the premier explorers of these unknown worlds today. Comprised recently recorded tracks, Kassel Jaeger presents a work of revisits and re-workings, one which acts as a hinge in both closing this particular chapter, whilst opening up the windows to a new sound world. In Aster, rich deep music is replete with dark ambient sonorities swirling amongst intense buzzing tones. Often chilling and ominous, this is a fearless music with abstracted corners and dynamic leverage. Unafraid to embed itself in the ongoing whirlpool of sonic progress. Jaegers output remains a thrilling body of exploration and ongoing transformation. Photos by Ende Wieder; Design by Stephen OMalley." - Editions Mego.

Artist: JAEGER, KASSEL
Title: Deltas
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $21.00
"Kassel Jaeger is a French-Swiss artist based in Paris and a member of the GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales). Deltas is his fifth album, and first on vinyl. "Campo Del Cielo" (2012): Commissioned by Espace Mendes France for a performance at The Planetarium in Poitiers, France, diffused on an 8-channel system. The sound material is exclusively derived and processed from stone recordings. The first part, "Aerolite (flying stone)," is mainly based on aerial field recording of stone manipulations. The second part, "Baetylus (sacred stone)," is made with electromagnetic capture of meteorite resonances. This meteorite was part of the Campo Del Cielo site. "Deltas" (2012): "Whenever the volume of water is so great as to counteract and almost neutralize the force of tides and currents, and in all cases where the latter agents have not sufficient power to remove to a distance, the whole of the sediment periodically brought down by rivers, deltas are produced." "A Guest + a Host α" (2011): Commissioned for Ina-GRMs Retro/Actif at La Gaîté Lyrique, Paris, France. Originally displayed on 16 channels, this work is exclusively composed with non-processed and original sounds made with the legendary Coupigny Modular Synth housed in the Groupe de Recherches Musicales studios. This work is structured as three dialectical parts: electricity + crystals = spectrum. "A Guest + Host = Ghost" (M. Duchamp). Mastered with Robert Hampson at 116 Bunker, Paris, May 2012. Cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates and Mastering, Berlin, July 2012. Layout by Stephen OMalley." -Editions Mego.
