Multidisciplinary artist Russell Haswell is planning to release two new LPs on Editions Mego, one of which will feature frequent collaborator, Mego regular, and TMT favorite Florian Hecker. The first of the two, titled Acid No!se Synthesis, is due October 25 and features Haswell’s improvisation on either modular synthesiser, computer, or electronics and pedals. According to Editions Mego, No!se was recorded and simultaneously monitored on a stereo/phase scope (for the visual aspect) and speakers or headphones (for the auditory side of things). They recommend that you have a similar experience with the record and also conclude on their website that this record “is not what you think it is.” So there. Get ready. The CD is packaged with a 16-page booklet with text and 15 vector oscillograms.
Following the CD’s release will be a collaborative vinyl LP with DVD featuring Florian Hecker due November 29, titled Kanal GENDYN. The LP includes recordings from 2004-2011. Both items are currently available for preorder from Editions Mego. Be sure to also check out preorders for Hive Mind and dieb13/Gustafsson/Siewert.
