EIGENIDYLL – KURMASSNAHMEN (CDR by Attenuation Circuit)
 
Eigenidyll, which is a new project by Tobias Schmitt, whom we know as Suspicion Breeds Confidence and Sasch Stadlmeier, also knows the other new release on Attenuation Circuit as Emerge (and who is the label boss here). They both play guitar (Stadlmeier also a bass), which they process with all sort of effects. This piece, which was recorded in concert in January of this year, shows very occasionally a bit of guitar sound, but most of the time is actually quite abstract. It is very ambient in approach but not necessarily it is a single mass of drone sounds. While with Emerge’s own work there is sometimes quite a bit of overuse of reverb, this is not the case here. All of the effects are used in just the right way. It goes from all the way to the threshold of hearing up until loud, spacey and bassey bits. I was reminded of the term ‚isolationist music‘, actually for the first time in a long time; remember that from the mid-90s? That covered a wide field of musical interests usually dealing with guitars in ambient contexts, and Eigenidyll very much work along those lines. Maybe a bit loosely organised, but then one has to keep in mind that this is a live recording, which wasn’t edited (I think) a lot afterwards. Most promising start of this new duo.

EMERGE – HIDING PLACE (CD by Frozen Light)

Of course you recognize the name Emerge from the many releases he did for his own label Attenuation Circuit, but now he’s ventured to a real CD on Russia’s Frozen Light label. Like he did before there are vocals by Eljara of Prinzip Nemesis (see also Vital Weekly 996)and there is a piece recorded with Russia’s Re-Drum (see Vital Weekly 875 for a release Attenuation Circuit put out – it’s a small world). There are only five pieces on this disc,yet it’s clocking in at close to an hour. It opens with ‚Flight 1‘, which is a typical Emerge piece of sampled acoustic sounds, which have been treated by digital means. As always along the lines of Asmus Tietchens, sans the refinement he has but it is still fine music. Of the five pieces, two are solo, and three are collaborations. In the first of the two pieces with Eljara there is no vocal (which is odd seeing Eljara is a vocalist) but it has quite a bit of tension, quiet mostly but noisy towards the end. In the second one there is a bit of vocals, mostly towards the end, although I think most of the sounds are generated through vocal samples. Both are quite good.  In the one piece with Re-Drum there is also a bit of vocals, but it’s otherwise built from a set of rhythmic samples, all of it a bit vague, and perhaps a bit long. The CD ends with ‚Flight 2‘, the longest piece, all solo and sees a continuation of ‚Flight 1‘, and my comment would be along similar lines. The sounds themselves are not bad, but the whole effect is too much mid-range, without much low-end depth. The first one sounded better. All in all a CD that was quite good. (FdW)

Eigenidyll sind Sascha Stadlmeier (EMERGE, Augsburg) und Tobias Schmitt (Suspicion Breeds Confidence, Frankfurt). Für dieses Projekt bewegen sie sich aus ihren jeweiligen rein elektronischen Komfortzonen, um als „Gitarrenduo“ zu improvisieren. Dabei werden die Sounds der Gitarren mittels der jeweiligen Processing- und Loop-Maschinerie bearbeitet. Die unterschiedlichen Herangehensweisen bzgl. Verwendung der Instrumente und der Verfremdung der Klänge verschmelzen schlußendlich zu etwas eigenartig Neuem.
