Emotional Response is pleased to announce a special 4 part, split series of LPs that explores the further reaches of ambient, drone and rhythmic percussion, known here as Schleißen.
To start the series is 2 artists long admired by the label. The music of Abul Mogard stayed pretty much under the radar. His lyrical electronic timbres and pulsating drones have been released on 2 solo and 1 joint cassette-only albums on Steve Moore and Anthony Paterra’s (Zombi) VCO Recordings. A big favourite of the label, Dizziness That Shakes Rivers And Mountains is near 19 minutes of pure, modular beauty. Play loud for full o.o.b.e
On the flip, a more well known name in Stefan Schwander’s percussion based project, Harmonious Thelonious. First catching the label’s attention with a series of drum heavy EPs before moving more towards the dance oor on his most recent releases.
On a visit to play the infamous Salon Des Amatuers for the Musiccargo album launch in late 2013, Stefan kindly passed on a CDR of “more experimental pieces” and on hearing these, the idea of Schleißen was rst born. 2 pieces of Steve Reich inspired minimalist explorations weld to become an incessant psychoacoustic cycle, melodically deconstructing and reconstructing to create a continuous harmonic movement.
A series then created for the more discerning ear, so empty your mind and (un)listen.
