>BOWINDO is a new italian label founded by ....
>....and distributed exclusively through Fringes Recordings.
>More info will be available soon at
>(probably next week, at the moment this page is down).
>Each cd is 14,00 euro (except the Bowindo 02 which is 10,00 euro).
>....these are the first four releases....(shipping from the 1st of June)
>�aestethics of the machine�
>Composed between december 1999 and january 2000.
>�The musical research that I have undertaken goes beyond man's "point of
>listening" (instead of "point of view") to experiment what could be
>as the machine's "point of listening" (the aesthetic of the machine).
>Therefore it is an aesthetic that privileges a "beyond-feeling", the
>with the "outerness", with the "totally-out". The audio frequency field of
>this work is beyond the possibilities of our "perceptions"; it is in fact
>the range of the "ultrasounds" (up to 20kHz) and the infrasounds (down to
>16Hz). Throughout this work the sounds were generated at the maximum volume
>available for digital systems (0dB). Therefore this composition is totally
>full, saturated, without dynamics, with a volume level consistently turned
>up to "fortissimo" (classical notation), just outside the range of human
>perception. What remains for our hearing? Only silence? However all that we
>perceive in this work is entirely the result of what has been discarded,
>driftage, the limits of technology and our auditory apparatus; anything
>springs out of those interferences, from those collisions, the clashes of
>those hyper-frequencies, their results, the difficulties and the noises of
>the sound-reproduction system (amplifiers, loudspeakers, filters, etc.)
>actually produced by the surrounding space (those objects that vibrate),
>very own auditory apparatus and body (often it is not our ear but our whole
>body that feels and vibrates)� (Elio Martusciello)
>"did they ? did i ?"
>Modernism a Go-Go
>Who�s Valerio Tricoli?... an enigma of italian electronic music.
>What�s �Did They? Did I?� after an unobteinable tape on Freedom Form
>documenting years of his activity, this is a record made up of flesh, blood
>and spirit solving at last the mystery that has been wrapping his true
>�Did They?�: 1999, the room of a motel... voices echoing in the
>a few contact microphones applied on a door... external world. �Did I?�
>sensibility and sensations expressed through sounds... internal world. The
>inner surface superimposes the outer one like a colour image on a black and
>�Did They? Did I?� is a record in which the contrasts, like those provoked
>by the impulses of inner and outer ego, are defty worked by violating any
>physical and biological rule, for the outer impulses - here sounding
>and unreal- would in fact prevail if the real features were respected. The
>inner impulses appear clean both in tones and in presence, elements that
>reflected in the sharpness of details and in the structural depth. Thus,
>sound sculpture is the appropriate definition to refer to the brightness of
>single sounds that increasingly become transparent, and to the use of a
>The structure of �Did They?Did I?� is so plastic as to touch light and
>shade, while other components interact creating lines, spaces, and light
>effects: presence and absence, long and short sounds, reality and
>imagination� Probably this music � that Tricoli himself defines as
>modernism a go-go -, finds its place between imagination and reality just
>where internal and external world meet each other. Is my interpratation of
>his work correct? Don�t know yet, for Valerio Tricoli still foments the
>mystery that has wrapped him for years by including a ghost track where
>inner ego is kept silent apart when investigating memory. Am I ?...am I not
>?...were I ?... what we have in the end is a blurred black and white
>background (Mario Biserni)
>Alessandro Bosetti, Antje Vowinckel
>"Charlemagne, la vue attach�e sur son lac de Constance,
>amoureux de l'abime cach�"
>Two electro-acoustic compositions from 2000 and 2002 by Alessandro Bosetti,
>, and a recent text-sound composition by Antje Vowinckel. Finely composed
>abstract music that, starting from microscopic sound details develops
>organically and highly dynamically despite the very reduced structures.
>of the pieces make an extended use of silence, space and very small,
>carefully shaped, sound particles creating a feeling of natural "breath"
>and flow. Although this music shares some techniques with the "musique
>concrete" it goes much beyond in giving new musical life to sounds and
>suggesting new approaches in listening perception. For those who know
>Alessandro Bosetti for his activities as improvising saxophonist in the new
>minimal scene with Phosphor, Annette Krebs and others and for his text
>compositions, it will not be difficult to recognize his personal way of
>organizing sounds. Also hearing Antje Vowinckel�s piece, could be a
>for those who know her as one of the more significative and granted author
>of new experimental radio plays in Germany.
>Domenico Sciajno, Gert-Jan Prins
>"the d&b album featuring: do shine'o & prinsjan"
>This is the first re-drum & re-bass album from the electronic duo of
>Domenico Sciajno and Gert-Jan Prins. They are both wellknown in the world
>experimental electronic music, with releases on Erstwhile, Fringes, and
>Grob. On this album Prins' analog shake-pulses and sweeps are directly
>plugged into Sciajno's specific powerbook aesthetics and vice versa. As a
>whole, the five pieces on this adventurous cd form a precision-combination
>of sharp computer-energy, rocking selfmade electronics ,and fluid music
>recombination-technics creating a grinding-spatial-musical concept, which
>by times reminds of Shine'o's & Prinsjan's rhythmic- and playtechnical
>backgrounds on drums and double bass
