die ANGEL : Entropien I (Cosmo Rhythmatic 2017)

In physics, entropy is a quantity generally described as the measure of disorder within any kind of thermodynamic system, including the universe. It counts the microscopic states that system can assume when open, interacting with others or getting altered by external conditions.
Thus, entropy makes for the perfect description of the way Ilpo Väisänen (Pan sonic, I- LP-O IN DUB) and Dirk Dresselhaus (Schneider TM, A S S, Locust Fudge) have approached music creation since the establishment of their collaborative project Angel (now die Angel) in 1999. Allowing energy to flow freely through machines, bodies and different acoustic conditions, they’ve generated a powerful archive of mutating sonic states. A kind of creative attitude that favors exploring the physical complexity of (un-)structured electronics.
That’s where the title for their release on Cosmo Rhythmatic comes from, “Entropien” being the Finnish word and the German plural for entropy. Getting back to the stripped down set of their beginnings (modular synths, effects and processed guitar), they’ve come out with one of their most, intense, rawest and noisiest albums to date, showcasing an impressing scale of dynamics while attacking the senses with belligerent tones. Oren Ambarchi also shows up on two tracks, intertwining his drums, field recordings and guitar within the duo’s discordant layers.

die ANGEL : Yön Magneetti Sine

New die ANGEL album – Yön Magneetti Sine – is out as LP / download on Edition Telemark in cooperation with MWM.

Edition Telemark & MWM present the ninth album by die ANGEL (previously called Angel), an improvisational noise and electro-acoustic project founded in 1999 by Dirk Dresselhaus (aka Schneider TM) and Ilpo Väisänen (ex-Pan sonic).
die ANGEL’s music meanders between the poles of improvised noise and electro-acoustic music, encompassing processed electronic sounds, instruments, and field recordings, with some tracks featuring guest musicians. Yön Magneetti Sine can be considered their most stripped-down album to date, completely recorded in July 2017 in Väisänen’s cottage near Karttula, Finland. It contains five improvised tracks featuring only processed acoustic signals from two self-built one-string resonance instruments and an acoustic guitar. Both one-stringed instruments were built by Väisänen from parts of a weaving loom, a bench, and two barbecue bowls.
All tracks were recorded live without overdubs and, according to Dresselhaus and Väisänen, relate directly to the surrounding landscape and the special atmosphere of the white nights that occur in central and northern Finland during summer. To them, the music heard here is to be called blues, albeit with non-standard instrumentation and structure. Thus, their working title has been “The Electro-Acoustic Blues Album”. Edition of 300 on blue vinyl in full-colour sleeve with various photos of the recording process and the surroundings.

die ANGEL : ENTROPIEN I

Pan Sonic’s Ilpo Väisänen and Dirk Dresselhaus (aka Schneider TM) have announced Entropien I, a new album dedicated to Pan Sonic partner Mika Vainio, who died in April 2017.

Released under the name die ANGEL (an updated name to their Angel project), the album “breaks down the soul of noise” and features multi-instrumentalist Oren Ambarchi on two tracks.

Entropien I is the duo’s first full-length since Vainio’s death and will be released on Shapednoise’s label Cosmo Rhythmatic. In 2015, the label released a collaborative album from Vainio and French electroacoustic composer Franck Vigroux.

LP & download available via Boomkat.
