RE-DRUM / EMERGE – split
white cassette in white jewel case (ltd.ed. 50copies)
live at echokammer, Augsburg, 28.03.15
Live at Eufemia, Warszawa, 14.04.15
This split tape documents two performances of the respective artists on their European tour 2015, one by Re-Drum in Augsburg, the attenuation circuit label homebase, and one by EMERGE in Warszawa – a great example of attenuation circuit’s increasing live presence in the experimental music underground throughout Europe.
Both performances start from drones and take them into the area of noise. There is a certain roughness, if not harshness, to the sound that translates well into the tape medium. The “live” feeling is almost palpable in the recordings, as one can feel the performers being carried from the drone structures they’re known for into more extreme territories, riding the wave of intensity and feedback that only comes from concert situations.
