Artist: YEAST CULTURE
Title: IYS
Format: LP
Label: Art Into Life
Country: Japan
Price: $34.00
“This is a field of action implied, in the many possibilities and several contextualities of time...”,“...projecting music outside the realm of musicology, with a well structured leap into the biological realm of sound and perception...” citing the IYS LP for example in note 56. – excerpted from Part II of THE NOISE OF HISTORIES by Giancarlo Toniutti, posted on http://www.23five.org "Full color deluxe gatefold, 180g gray vinyl printed by original artists! Fully opens to tree diagrams poster! IYS – stem, branch, expression. Radiative expansion. The tree is silent. Make it speak. Assault on Venus. Cartesian grid or dimensional zones? Plants & animals. Airplanes, birds. When we hear a natural sound, how is it perceived? Is destruction an abberation in space-time? Process music. Nature can be quite quiet. Infrequent sounds in isolation. Overnight Campsite. Revealed roots. Primitive sound genesis. Time lapse structures. Wild environments. Some things in nature are meant to be broken, like the shell of a nut. Sound of life torn apart. Not the brittle crispiness of dried fall. Pattern perception. A specific, localized sound environment. Tree removal. Reverse animation. Search for the right sized subject. Madrona. Logging roads, island trek. Sacrifice. Microcosm in sound recording. Detailed exclusion. No looping. A finite numbered sequence. Its inversion alongside. A trailer full of dissected specimen. Ladder and camera. The cultivation of a sonic germ. Is the spirit intact? A single flower tops the tree. The waxy green leaves are first plucked. Its a skeletal reversal rehearsal. Displaced matter. Three days of taping. Prepared systematic process. Horizontal reorientation of sound contents. Wood audio emissions. Tanglewood. Time compression shifting. Tiny becomes tinier. Tinny becomes tinnier. Analog reels reality analogue. The beast has left. Careful with that axe! Levels zero and one on up to the branch tips. Field drawings and photos. Archeological dig in the dirt. Unearthed trunk. A missing organism is globally dispensed with. And still this thing persists. A strange evolution through sound. Creepy." - Art Into Life.

Title: Shit On A Shingle
Format: Triple Cass/Art
Label: Petri Supply
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
49 copies made. "In about 1991 the Yeast Culture studio (Incubator) was at the Kalberer Hotel Supply Warehouse in Seattle. We then began a project to gather together every recorded moment from the last few years. For this, several reel to reel recorders were used to create very lengthy multitracked stereo montages from all available cassette master recordings. Over a period of weeks, all sounds that we had recorded from before 1987 up to about 1991 were transferred to reel in a vast production process. The results of the reel production process were outputted back onto three cassettes, using higher speeds, in order to fit the material into the format of three 45 minute sides of sound collage. These sounds tapes have never been released in any way until now. They were, however used in the process of the 7" single Wormhole/Birdbath which was published in the 3x7" single set Circusirus (Smorgasbird); the sounds of that single, however were processed in a very complex way, including a total shift to higher frequency, in a way which removes it completely from the three master tapes. The Wormhole/Birdbath recordings utilized several performers in a few sessions. Each session had three performers, two being the Yeast Culture core of Abo and Allen, and the third being another person such as Key, Birdshit, or Dale. Performers simply used a bank of switches to route sound to other members of the triad (these custom switch nodes were called Chaos Boards, and they formed a small network). Sounds were chopped and moved around the stereo spectrum in this fashion. The chaos tapes are not the same as this Shit on a Shingle set, but play a part in the new 2013 remix. Shit on a Shingle times out to about 3 albums worth of pure sound collage – on cassette. There isnt repeated material. The sound result has elements of the Rena Leicia “sound," but is more dynamic and ever changing. Its a kind of sound that Yeast Culture was developing which did not appear on any compilations. Its a more opened up free form process, with a wiggly abstract perspective. We hope you find this 7" Shingle to be our best yet! Its the gravy, Shit on a Shingle." - Petri Supply.
