M15.003 - Coil Live @MUTEK 2003

M15.003 - Coil Live @MUTEK 2003 The legendary Coil graced the MUTEK stage in 2003. Founded in 1983 from the remains of so many seminal groups — Psychic TV, 23 skidoo and Current 93, John Balance and Peter Christopherson’s work was inspired by ritual practice, transformation and tireless musical exploration. This recording, never released before, featured Christopherson and longtime associate Thighpaulsandra. A great loss for music, both Christopherson and Balance have since passed away. Le légendaire Coil nous a fait l'honneur de venir sur scène pour MUTEK en 2003. Créé en 1983 avec les restes de groupes séminaux tels Psychic TV, 23 Skidoo and Current 93, le travail de John Balance et Peter Christopherson s'est inspiré de pratiques rituelles, de mutation de la conscience et d'une inlassable exploration musicale. Cet enregistrement met en scène Christopherson et son associé de longue date Thighpaulsandra, et n'a jamais été diffusé auparavant. Perte inestimable pour la musique, Christopherson et Balance ont rendu leur dernier souffle depuis.

Quelle soirée épique et captivante. Cet AVANT_MUTEK a dépassé toutes nos attentes. Quel bonheur de voir toute cette communauté au rendez-vous, et quel honneur aussi d'avoir pu fournir ce contexte idéal pour accueillir Minilogue une dernière fois. Merci à tous pour votre support et enthousiasme. En espérant vous revoir aussi nombreux et en forme au festival! It was epic, it was enthralling. AVANT_MUTEK exceeded even our expectations. It was a joy to see the community out and into it, and a pleasure to provide the context, and to be able to present Minilogue one final time. Thank you to everyone whose spirit and enthusiasm made this so great. See you at the festival!

TM404 - 202/202/303/303/606

video 2014-04-19 22:10:00

Since the early 2000s, the many monikered Swedish producer Andreas Tilliander has put out some of glitch-techno’s most seminal records. His latest, TM404 – is a tribute to a handful of genre-defining Roland drum machines from the 1980s, with tracks recorded in real time and no work done in post. Conjuring up polyrhythmic, hypnotic dub melodies, which he refers to as “somnolent acid,” he is a perfect complement to the Thursday night lineup for Hawtin’s ENTER.MUTEK. Depuis le début des années 2000, Andreas Tilliander, producteur suédois aux multiples alias, a composé des grands classiques de la glitch-techno. TM404, son nouveau projet, est un hommage aux boîtes à rythme Roland des années 1980. Il les enregistre en temps réel et n'ajoute aucun traitement supplémentaire. Invoquant des mélodies polyrythmiques aux accents dub hypnotiques qu'il qualifie d'« acid somnolente », il fait un parfait soutien au line up de la soirée de Richie Hawtin, ENTER.MUTEK.
