    Descriptive info: .. NEWS.. |.. PUBLICATIONS.. EVENTS.. ARTISTS.. SOUNDS.. IMAGES.. ABOUT.. RESOURCES.. R.. I.. P.. Zbigniew Karkowski // 1958-2013.. Recent Publication.. G*PARK : Sub.. 23five018, Double Compact Disc.. release date: September 24, 2013.. $15.. 98, plus shipping.. The most enigmatic of the Schimpfluch-Gruppe, Marc Zeier in the man behind G*Park; and here, he presents his first major album since the acclaimed 2008 album of cryptic electro-acoustics entitled.. Reuters.. Many years in the making,.. Sub.. is a sprawling masterpiece of modern day musique concrete, reflecting the early pioneers' use of razor cut tape with a grandiose revelation of an existential horror.. Zeier describes this album as the manifestation of amorphous conditions that lead to (or interfere with) representational forms or states of being.. His examples of the shifting patterns from clouds of blackbirds or the clinging masses from algae blooms are rudimentary entry points for his rhizomatic, chimerical work.. For every malignant drone and turgid thrumming, Zeier will puncture his fluttering, frozen methane surfaces with jagged incisions, pneumatic hammerings, and decompressed gasps.. This fragmented punctuation is a signature to the G*Park aesthetic, used highly effectively in mapping his clinical situations turned septic.. The titles to the tracks on Sub address the physical attributes of the source material that went into each track, with some decidedly specific ( Swine , Wasp , Stone ) and others nebulously abstract ( Purge , Glow , Pulse ).. For Zeier, the exact nature of the sound object is informed more by a shadowy deconstruction than by a direct representation, thrust into an absurd existence as an abomination, a violation, a monster.. locates itself near the psychological minefields of Luc Ferrari, Steven Stapleton's prediliction for windows, and the cruel x-ray visions from fellow Swiss aktionists Sudden Infant Dave Phillips.. disc one.. 1..

Older Posts.. 23five co-presents : Tension at Battery Townsley.. as part of the Soundwave (5) Biennial.. Battery Townsley at Fort Cronkhite.. Golden Gate National Park.. August 5, 2012.. Eli Keszler (New York).. Ben Bracken and Ashley Bellouin (Oakland).. Tom Duff (San Francisco).. Soundwave Humanities takes you into the wilderness for a sonic event like no other.. Up in the hills of the Marin Headlands, amongst the gorgeous ocean and parklands, lies a structure steeped with history,.. Built in 1940 during WWII, this strongest and most secretive harbor fortification was a marvel in technology outfitted with battleship guns to defend the western shores against the Japanese navy.. After the war, the outpost was a military testing site but by the 1980s, it was largely abandoned.. National Park Service took authority and historians, contractors and Volunteers in Parks helped restore a historic site.. Sound artists will use the Battery to explore notions of Tension (war and peace, and love and desire) in this former war installation with special performance installations using the extreme resonant spaces with the tensions of strings and stringed instrumentation to give voice to the Battery of what once was and what will become.. New York artist Keszler creates a large scale mechanical string installation in the Battery gunwell formerly outfitted with battleship guns.. Sonic duo Bracken and Bellouin use hand-made instruments that utilize strings, aluminum, wood, and microtonal tuning systems in the battery tunnel.. Sound artist Duff creates Wire Machine, inspired seminal composition/installation Music on a Long Thin Wire, inside the battery rooms and hallways.. http://www.. projectsoundwave.. com..

Five Points Art House • 72 Tehama Street • San Francisco, California •.. fivepointsarthouse.. Runar Magnusson is an Icelandic composer, working in Copenhagen, Denmark.. Inspired by the sounds of nature, horror movies, noise, and meditation, Magnusson specializes in atmospheric disturbances through minimalist compositions.. While an oppressive hue is often cast upon Magnusson's work, it is nevertheless always drafted with a sly trace of humor.. Over the past 10 years, Magnusson has travelled the globe presenting his work at various festivals and in various guises, including in the ensembles Vindva Mei and SameSameButDifferent.. Recently, he has been focusing on surround sound, playing multi channel concerts at various locations, in churches, galleries, clubs and theaters located throughout the world including China, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Mexico, and the USA.. Runar is the cofounder of Hljódaklettar, a boutique record label he founded with Sabrina Joy Winogrond for the purposes of releasing rare, limited, and collectible music and organizing events of art and music.. http://hljodaklettar.. http://soundcloud.. com/runar.. http://runarmagnusson.. wordpress.. com/.. Describing his work through the pithy phrase, I rust things, Jim Haynes is an artist who has developed a vocabulary of decay that he has applied to photography, sculpture, installation, and sound.. Haynes' sound work draws from shortwave radio static, electric field disturbances, controlled feedback manipulation, and numerous textural scrapings, manifesting broken minimalism of magnetic drones and volatile tactility.. This engineering of disparate materials and media seeks to evince the unpredictability of decay, to manifest its potential for a rough hewn beauty, and to bare witness to its inevitability.. He has exhibited internationally at Electric Works (San Francisco), the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art , the Bekerley Art Museum, The Exploratorium (San Francisco), WestSpace (Melbourne, Australia), Jack Straw Productions (Seattle), Eyedrum (Atlanta), Diapason (New York), and The Lab (San Francisco).. Haynes has published his work through the Helen Scarsdale Agency, 23five Incorporated, Intransitive, Observatoire, and Elevator Bath.. He has collaborated with Steven Stapleton (Nurse With Wound), M.. S.. Waldron (irr.. app.. (ext.. )), Keith Evans, Allison Holt, and Loren Chasse.. He is also a contributing writer for The Wire.. Haynes is one of the Directors for 23five and is the lone occupant at the Helen Scarsdale Agency.. helenscarsdale.. com/haynes.. com/helen-scarsdale.. 23five Incorporated, swissnex San Francisco, The Lab present.. Infrasound.. (Oakland).. Jason Kahn.. (Switzerland).. Francisco Meirino.. (Switzerland).. Tuesday • September 27, 2011 • 8:00pm • $12.. 00.. The Lab • 2948 16th Street • San Francisco, California • www.. On September 27, 23five celebrates 10 years of Infrasound, the acclaimed collaborative project between Scott Arford and Randy Yau.. These two sound artists engage the architecture of a particular performance space in manipulating the resonant frequencies of that space through finely tuned broadcast of specific frequencies at extreme volumes.. The low frequencies literally rattle the walls and manifest standing waves through the space.. As such, Infrasound performances are experienced only in a live context; and they have never played the same space twice.. Infrasound will also be joined by the pioneering electro-acoustic minimalist Jason Kahn and the noise tactician of failed electronics Francisco Meirino.. Preceding Infrasound, Kahn and Meirino will be presenting two solo sets and a collaborative set.. With the support from the Swiss Arts Council, Pro Helvetia..

  • Title: 23five Incorporated
    Descriptive info: About 23five Incorporated.. 23five Incorporated is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development and increased awareness of sound works in the public arena, and to the support and education of artists working with and discussing the medium of sound.. 23five was founded in 1993, and secured federal 501(c)(3) status in 1995.. We define sound works as: artistic endeavors that are primarily concerned with the use of sound, but fall outside of what is normally considered music.. This includes but is not limited to: recordings, radio transmissions, performances, installations, sound sculpture, site specific public art, and new media arts.. We aim to achieve these goals by: publishing and documenting the production of sound works by established artists and facilitating the production of works by emerging artists in this medium; becoming a development site for educational projects for artists, schools, community and cultural centers, alternative art spaces, museums, galleries, radio broadcasters, other media organizations, and any others interested in learning about the nature and history of sound art; serving as a think-tank, resource center and sound archive to promote an atmosphere where theoretical discourse may flourish; and providing the public with the opportunity to experience and review sound works and essays produced by artists and theorists.. In seeking to meet our goal of collecting and distributing information and sound, 23five Incorporated continues to research and build international resources and contacts for public access through this website.. Demo and Proposals.. 23five Incorporated is not accepting demos for publication.. However, we are accepting proposals throughout the year for the various events we host in the San Francisco Bay Area, including the annual Activating The Medium festival.. Proposals must include a curriculum vitae, an artist's statement both of your entire body of work and with the specifics of your proposed performance, a time frame for your performance (at least two months lead time is required), and link to sound sample posted online (e.. g..

    Descriptive info: The most enigmatic of the Schimpfluch-Gruppe, Marc Zeier is the man behind G*Park; and here, he presents his first major album since the acclaimed 2008 album of cryptic electro-acoustics entitled.. G*Park // Stack from.. REVIEWS:.. Freq.. org.. uk.. October 2013.. This is like being trapped in the bubbling workings of a psychotic mind, reason lost in a fevered turmoil of carrion flies waltzing with the concrete scrape of the speakers.. Feels like your head’s being invaded (especially on headphones) – neurons, a rutted dirt track between left and right hemispheres, full of scythed MRI slices and quaking vellum, scuttling insects and the odd snorting beast.. Disembodied electro-acoustics that disconcert, shunt, scamper, effectively break through that brittle listener/musician divide.. The hairy, diseased colouration of the cover sets the scene, like a petri dish pixilation of an autopsy.. An autopsy of sound; a trickle of psychological uncertainties that play brilliantly with your imagination.. Feels like something coming through the wall at you, as if the dust has been magnified or displaced by invisible worms gnawing behind the skirting, prising at the rusting tacks and plaster.. Late night plays of this freak me out like Zero Kama‘s human bone orchestrations still do.. That scurrying of crumbling debris gets right under your skin, seems to chew on your skull, whereas other bits remind me of the claustrophobic grace that those French brothers Etant Donnes wield, punching at the psyche in abrupt potent dramas.. Jittery bombs that explode, explore, picking locks to those less travelled corridors of your mind.. You’re a hostage to sensation, with no idea what’s going to happen next.. Things take you unawares, sudden strangled gasps of feathered asphyxiation, the brief blooms of rupturing unpleasantness spewing from the drones.. As you can probably tell I’m smitten – I love this sort of thing.. It could be pushed a smidgen more extreme maybe, but I’m not complaining.. It’s a vivid and descriptive bleed of natural/synthetic diameters and nervous detailing that hits the spot.. A momentum whose smothered contours revel in a gristly play of hissological hum and reoccurring weathered swarms, punctuated in the oblique sawings of motorised scupper.. Loving the ambiguity – is that beaten grain or the flap of large wing spans? Questions caught in the whir of a blender.. The physicality too; gleaming with sounds that are ‘surreally’ real, that bone-dry displacement of pebbles fooling your eyes to follow a rolling descent into nowhere, or the way crow caws are abruptly scissored from the cord-pulled corpse of a porcelain doll.. I only ever heard Marc Zeier‘s work on compilations before, his atmospheres always tantalisingly vibrant but far too brief; great to finally listen to a whole double album’s worth.. -- Michael Rodham-Heaps.. Brainwashed.. Affiliated with the Schimpfluch-Gruppe collective, Marc Zeier has managed to be one of the lower profile members of the loosely-knit group, and also one who’s work is perhaps the most understated.. Without the visceral, nauseating organic sounds of Rudolf Eb.. er or the occasionally jolly, punk-tinged absurdism of Joke Lanz, Zeier’s work has been one that emphasizes the sound more than the presentation.. Not an overly prolific composer,.. makes for  ...   it uses the pure recordings sparingly throughout its lengthy duration.. What I assume to be heartbeats are deconstructed into wet, massive thumps and sickly creaks.. Going through a cycle of lighter and darker passages, the natural rhythms are molded into heavy thuds and grotesque, sputtering outbursts of noise.. It manages to stay still long enough for each element to be appreciated before rearranging into something else entirely, making for a dynamic, fascinating, if at times unpleasant recording.. Throughout the entire album, Zeier also makes liberal use of jarring, high volume outbursts that only slightly relieve the tension leading up to them: indistinct bursts of noise on Stack, and the jackhammer like blasts of Glow, are perfect examples of this.. In the few cases where he does not employ this technique, such as on the more static Purge, their absence is somewhat obvious and makes the piece stand out less than others.. As an intentionally obscure album (the track listing does not appear anywhere on the disc or packaging, only on the label's website),.. uses this obscurity to its best advantage.. Even though those titles give away some of the source material utilized, I caught myself wondering throughout if that was the only object used on each one, and if not, what else was there? The more obtuse titles…what were they comprised of? Of course I do not need to know the answer to these questions to enjoy Zeier’s work, and I think it truly works best if he retains that “man behind the curtain” obscurity.. This questioning and dissection, however, is one of the things that brought me back to this album many times for a closer examination.. -- Creaig Dunton.. De:Bug.. November 2013.. Marc Zeier alias G*Park ist ein Teil der Extrem-Performance Gruppe Schimpfluch.. Neben seinen Arbeiten mit Video, Performance und Installation veröffentlicht er auch seit dreißig Jahren Tonträger.. versammelt eine Reihe ruhiger, konkreter Klangcollagen mit Titeln wie “Swine”, “Wasp”, “Breath” und “Ice”, die wohl die Ausgangsklangelemente bezeichnen, die jeweils verwendet wurden.. Andere wie “Stack”, “Purge” oder “Glow” sind vielleicht Assoziationen des Künstlers zu den Ergebnissen seiner Arbeit.. Die Atmosphäre ist grundsätzlich eher unwirtlich, unfreundlich und unheimlich gehalten.. Klanglich sind die hier versammelten Hörstücke stets rau, inhaltlich sehr abwechslungsreich und spannend geraten.. -- Sascha Kösch.. The Wire.. December 2013.. Marc Zeier evokes a harsh pastoral on the first G*Park album since 2008's.. These concise concrète pieces evoke not dystopian scenarios or bodily abjection, but perverse echoes of the natural world and the mechanisms that control it: you almost but not quite hear agricultural machinery, harshly humming insects, corvid rasps, the capacity of sound to carry across empty space, the percussion of footsteps and wind.. Admittedly, his titles perpetuate this impression -- Crows in Lantsch , Amden Trees , The Cave [.. nb, these are actually not the titles, but conditions and locations of Zeier's various recordings.. ] -- adding up to a stark poetry of landscape.. These images are highly abstracted with a kind of sucking-out and paring-down of found sound that marks Zeier as a noise artist from a generation not in thrall to layering or loops.. -- Frances Morgan..

  • Title: .helmut.schäfer.
    Descriptive info: HELMUT SCHÄFER : Thought Provoking III.. 23five017, Compact Disc.. published in 2012.. $12.. 98, plus shipping.. Thought Provoking III.. is the final document from the electro-acoustic composer Helmut Schäfer who died in 2007.. The Austrian artist spoke of his work as characterized by the use of very intense and direct musical language which powerfully describes his personal experience and reflections on society structures, the blindness of modern and informed masses and everyday functionalism in between civilization.. That intensity of expression manifested itself through performances and collaborations that took Schäfer around the globe, including presentations at Documenta X and ARS Electronica both in 1997.. For all of his tireless work, Schäfer's recording output is relatively small, focusing mostly on his collaborative work with noted musical extremist Zbigniew Karkowski.. Schäfer posited Thought Provoking as a radical shift from his brutalist electronic engineering to a spatialized, open-ended composition based on the muffled tones from an ad hoc instrument he built from salvaged church organ pipes and hair dryers.. The first presentation of this work took place in his home town of Graz, Austria in 2003; the second was a collaboration with violinist Elisabeth Gmeiner in Vienna two years later; and the third final performance occurred in 2006 with percussionist Will Guthrie and Gmiener at the St.. Andre Church where he first presented it  ...   a very good one.. The main track is a piece by Schafer (who committed suicide that year) featuring himself on organ pipes and electronics, Elisabeth Gmeiner on violin and Guthrie on percussion and microphones.. I'm not familiar with his earlier work and don't know how/if this fits in, but it's wonderfully tense, the violin tracing a delicate, erose drone over similarly timbred pipes (apparently laid on the floor and activated, without much interference, by hair dryers), with wonderfully varied fluttering and clattering (though spare) percussion alongside.. The violin hints at romantic lines but skirts their borders also managing to never become overly astringent.. The music is very taut--it stretches then snaps back, expands dynamically, then pulls in; an unusual combination of a breathing quality with dryness, not stuffy at all but very low humidity.. There's a hint of the ritualistic somewhere but that and any other reference point never become overbearing.. Instead, one wanders around some large, strange room, dusty and eerie but pulsing.. Oh, it falters now and then, but overall it's a pretty special piece.. It runs about 24 minutes and it followed by a kind of remix by Zbigniew Karkowksi, a frequent collaborator of Schafer's.. It's fine, more violent and overtly electronic that its source, but is really just an adjunct to the main work.. -- Brian Olewick..
