Schneider TM & Automat – BOOTLEG
Out now: BOOTLEG. THE FIRST RECORD MADE BY BOOTS AND LEGS. Re-Composed by Schneider TM & AUTOMAT.
BOOTLEG is a limited 12″ vinyl with AUTOMAT (Jochen Arbeit, Achim Färber, Georg Zeitblom) and SCHNEIDER TM (Dirk Dresselhaus) turning scratched blank vinyls into music. This blank vinyl was taped to the floor during an AUTOMAT concert and the crowd danced on it. Played on turntables you only heard noise. Automat and Schneider TM then used the tracks to compose three unique tracks. BOOTLEG shows that you can turn dance into music and fans into musicians.
Limited 12” vinyl available at: Bureau B
Finally Out: REAL TIME [Reinhold Friedl & Dirk Dresselhaus] on BLUME.
3CD-Box with intense duo-soundworks by Dirk Dresselhaus aka TM Schneider and Reinhold Friedl, minimalistic & overwhelming !
*** Rigid box containing 3 CDs with printed plastic dividers ***
Reinhold Friedl (zeitkratzer Ensemble) and Dirk Dresselhaus (Angel, Schneider TM) smack us sideways with this stunning 3CD boxset for Die Schachtel’s promising new sub-label, Blume. Approaching from divergent angles – Friedl uses entirely acoustic instrumentation, Dresselhaus uses electronics – they shape a mass of impurified prepared piano and sheet metal drones driven thru oscillators, spring reverb, modulators and pitch shifters to breathtaking effect. We’ve become very familiar with Friedl’s amazing solo LP, ‘Inside Piano’ over the last few years, and equally return to Dresselhaus’ Angel albums with Pan Sonic’s Ilpo Väisänen on a regular basis, and can safely say that this surpasses either project in terms of scale, focus and impact. Honestly, if you trust us or your instincts, this is an unmissable set for followers of heavy avant-garde noise composition. Can’t wait to fully immerse in this one…
Schneider TM, Julian Kamphausen & Arved Schultze go on research trip to Africa (Mali & Burkina Faso/Lobi Country) in June 2014 to find musicians for an intercultural future project. More info here: BALAFO
