MR SCHMUCK’S FARM (Hildur Gudnadottir & Schneider TM) – GOOD SOUND – from 2005 is now available as download :
CD available at: Oral Records
Hildur & Schneider met in 2004 in Berlin’s partyzone and found out they were both living in the same neighbourhood. Soon the idea came up to do some music together. One fine day Hildur came over to Schneider’s house/studio and brought her cello. Before they even started talking or drinking coffee, the track my favourite caucus airchamber was recorded. After that they met occasionally to play some game of bowls in the park or have one or two drinks together. A couple of weeks later the second track inspired by a common love of Sun Ra music (don’t give up, what is death?) was recorded just like the first one…but this time she also brought her zither, accordion and saw…. no talking, no specific ideas, no direction: just Hildur playing over and over the acoustic instruments and Schneider processing them live on his mixing-desk. A couple of weeks later Hildur moved back to Iceland to finish her electro acoustic studies and Schneider visited some jail to work on German gangster-rap with some prisoners. When Hildur came back to Berlin to join Angel for their drone-set in October 2004 at Club Transmediale, the time was right to record the track not all crows are black. Then, one afternoon, the Schmucks appeared at Schneider’s studio, but this is another story…

ANGEL – 26000
The 5 tracks describe the last period of a 26000 years long cycle that leads to a new situation on this planet.
26000 was recorded between 2008 and 2010 at Construction Site Studios in Berlin & Ilpo’s cottage in Karttula, Finland and features guest appearences by Hildur Gudnadottir, BJ Nilsen and Oren Ambarchi.
The repertoire of the instruments is very wide: glassbowls, metal objects, pieces of wood, grass, birds, dragonflies, lake echo, smoking box and the regular electronic equipment as well as acoustic instruments.
It’s all good in the tummy, bwoys, because the Black Sabbath parts were totally AC/DC.

ANGEL – HEDONISM
Despite only being released now ‘Hedonism’ is actually the first studio album by Dirk Dresselhaus and Ilpo Väsiänen as duo, a project which started in 1999. 5 years in the making and being started before Hildur Gudnadottir joined forces, ‘Hedonism’ is collision of urban and rural settings.
The opening five blistering tracks retain a full in sci-fi punk feel being made in Dirk’s Berlin studio. Tracks such as ‘Holding Loose’ and ‘Adrenaline Strike’ are brutal urban mantras bristling with energy. These are followed by electro-acoustic exercise manipulating various concrete sources, leading up to the final 2 pieces recorded at Ilpo’s lakeside
cottage in the wilds of northern Finland. Here fragile field recordings of insects, fish eating mosquitos, birds mesh with the duos shiny electronics to create the massive ‘Mirrorworld’. The closing ‘Hornet’ while stating a calm atmosphere has a somewhat startling surprise in store for the listener
