Latest Updates

We are happy to present the digital re-release of Good Sound by Mr. Schmuck`s Farm at MWM bandcamp (originally released as CD in 2005 on Oral)

Mr. Schmuck’s Farm

Hildur Gudnadottir and Dirk Dresselhaus met each other at Club Transmediale 2004 in Berlin and started to hang out, party, play boccia and record improv-sessions at Dirk’s Constructionsite Studios. They found out that the combination of Hildur’s skills on acoustic instruments (cello, zither, saw, accordion etc.) and Dirk’s ways of electronic manipulation (effect-feedbacks, realtime sampling, modular system, filtering etc.) offers a foundation for deep musical communication and organic soundworlds, that are freefloating, time-transcending and morphable in many different sonic directions.
It doesn’t seem far that Mr. Schmuck’s Farm’s sound already inspired dance-/theater-pieces and that it was used as the score in various motion pictures.
In late 2007 they played their first live performance at Volksbühne, Berlin, opening for Pan sonic & Keiji Haino.

Good Sound

The result of the first three recordings is Mr. Schmuck’s Farm’s debut album ‚Good Sound’, which was released in 2005 on Eric Mattson’s canadian label Oral. The wide range of the pieces reaches from harmonical influences of balkan music, gentle/harsh feedbacks combined with organic/mechanical structures to pure electricity, triggered by wood and steel…all elements influencing each other. This music was created by only following the sound, not by any preconceptional ideas.

This is what Mark Barton of Losingtoday had to say about it :

Here you’ll find a bulging bag of gems with treats for all the family – disconcerting sleepy pop (‘do you want one of these?’), chattering celestial abstract folk pop (as though Animal Collective where on a sabbatical with Sunburned Hand of the Man – ‘Like a Rolling Drone’), psychotropic pop hypnosis (the Sonic Boom homage of the mesmeric mantra ‘Bulgarian Death Drone’ or the gem like lysergic Spacemen 3 psyche blues on the closing ‘This year round there ain’t gonna be no summer’). From the minute the free wheeling abstract off kilter Fall-esque opener ‘Theme from Captain Carrot’ and the curious off balance lazy eyed freak beating wash of ‘Hey Mr Rambler’ veer into view you are immediately put on alert that a strange brew is at work, the haphazard pop matrix is bludgeoned by a wilful sense of black humour that brings with it a decidedly crooked foot print to the proceedings and yet for all that when they do settle down drunken nuggets like ‘Sunday groovy Sunday’ (or the Beefheart meets Zappa meets Zorn curiosity ‘Da Blues’) warm the listening space with an unusual candour that’s both alluring and likewise puzzling. Hand up the back pistol to the head I‘d have to opt for ‘Out comes the sunshine’ as the albums most indicative moment a sly slice of idly ambling pop that mid way through is ripped apart sonic autopsy style leaving both your hi-fi and head shredded from the experience.

ANGEL : KALMUKIA

In co-operation with Editions Mego (who will release the cd-version within a notebook designed by Stephen O`Malley), we are happy to present Angel`s first studio album: Kalmukia.

Performed by Ilpo Väisänen / Hildur Guðnadóttir / Dirk Dresselhaus

The download version comes with original notations and drawings by Ilpo Väisänen.

And this is what it is all about:

SHORT NOTATIONS OF THE KALMUKIA PLAN

On 17th of May we enter a place in Kalmukia, which is only 30-40 kilometres away from the river Volga. Locals guide us to the zone where the discovery is supposed to be, but as we come close enough, they turn back. We enter the zone and start to feel the effects immediately, but we continue like planned. We start the calculations and measurements. We make the plan for the wiring but the invasion has already started. When we enter the place it has an odd effect on us. The locals know about it and call it ‚blissfull death’. One of us gets the symptoms right away: hyperactive talking, all information coming out in one moment, continuous ejaculation or ovulation, a feeling of endless bliss before sudden death. To avoid these symptoms we have to eat sturgeon eggs. We start to build the construction like it was shown in our dreams and place the tetra-shaped device above the core. Something goes wrong, the alarm starts and a catastrophy happens.

Before and after the catastrophy we find these extremely peculiar creatures that live in the harbours of the caspian sea, where the pollution is strong and the oil is thickest. They are formations of sturgeon, identical in shape and form. The head and organs are mutated by the influence of the discovery. This creature is extremely defensive and violent towards those who threaten. The locals call them ‚the tank-parasites’. They suck oil and polluted water, filtering them to then weep out organic material from their backs. After researching their breeding-methods, we concluded that the eggs have a 100% chance of survival and after researching their intelligence, we knew that this creature would be the next dominating species on our planet.
