Kostis Kilymis is great. He runs a brilliantly named label, Organized Music From Thessaloniki, which releases meditations on birdsong and politically-charged zither music. He makes doom-laden soundtracks for writhing dancers. He frequently quotes William Burroughs. He makes beautiful cards. And in between this comically hectic schedule, he finds the time to concoct some grimy aural “confrontation” for Entr’acte titled More Noise Ahead.
For this little blighter, Kilymis collects sounds from experiments in the unpredictable and occasionally aggressive world that is audio feedback systems. All the acoustic and electronic noises here are pretty impossible to distinguish from each other, so don’t even bother trying. Instead, why not just bask in the “assemblage of tones, noises and auditory responses”? “A Crutch,” which was made with microphones, a 4-track, lloopp, and Flower Electronics’ Jealous Heart, among other equipment, can be found on More Noise Ahead
