Brinkmann and Ikeda

a few more contemporary electronic things before switching gears for a minute:

Thomas Brinkmann - Rosa

a colossal record of Teutonic ingenuity, this collects the legendary 12 inches named after girls. first couple of tracks are very abstract, the energy builds steadily toward the end, where it gets crazy intense. a highlight is number 4 - an extraordinary bio-kinetic machine in the shape of a lotus slowly blooming.

Ryoji Ikeda - Mort Aux Vasches

Ryoji in steady rocking mode - 2 long tracks of beautiful sine-tones, precision laser cut gray-scale noise, massive bass slabs, and powerful, shifting beat structures. sickness.

atleast one of these tracks I've seen used in a Dumb-Type performance. not to be missed if they ever show up in your city.

Ryoji Ikeda - 1000 Fragments

Ryoji in classic cut up and drone modes. this I believe is one of the records which jump started his career in sound sculpture. fascinating through out, hyper dense decibal crunch, samples and beats give way to pristine wave forms in the later part, a complex and remarkable work.

The Mort Aux Vaches link worked fine for me. Thanks for introducing me to a new favorite!

no problem with the dead cows file except for the completely cryptic name of the zip-file :-)

You shouldn't feel upset having to wait for your free music.

Comments on Ikeda. These cut-ups on 1000 fragments made me kind of nervous and I already am quite a nervous character so I don't think this one will last long with me. Tried to get my ears on "mort aux.." but sendspace kept telling me all slots were full and after the nth time I gave up (I'd already listened to "1000" by that time and quite miraculously was able to download two other albums via sendspace meanwhile). Comments on those probably later.

hi jehswp, thanks for your comments! yes the first half of 1000 fragments is a very jarring nervous experience. if you can though, should check out Ikeda on Mort Aux Vache, it is a steady, patient affair of epic proportions...

incidentally, your name is very close to the word verification I'm typing in down below :D

New Thomas Brinkmann album (Klick Revolution) can now (Nov. 20) be listened to on http://3voor12.vpro.nl/luisterpaal/. Probably be there for a week (or two), so if you have a spare moment... (Streaming, no download).

Could you please Re-upload this cd?
Pleeeeeeeeease!! Sendspace sucks!!

Please, could you reupload 1000 Fragments.

Free download is the only way i can hear this kinds of cd's, because here in Argentina, the recordstores don't sell this albums.
You would say that i can use amazon or this stuff, but the currency with the coin here in Argentina make impossible to buy all the cd's i want(dollar and euro are really high)

Thx in advance
