▶ Second Woman is a new collaborative project featuring Turk Dietrich of Belong and Joshua Eustis of the renowned Telefon Tel Aviv…. “The deliberation and control over every particle is obsessive, but the end results of each individual track unfold with an organic temperament unparalleled in a grid-locked world of DAW shaped musics and rat’s-nest modular aleatory.”

 

 

 

▶ Brian Case – Tense Nature

 

 

OMG i so LOVE this – thank Michael for posting it – her Vespertine album hits a sweet spot in my heart, as when it was released I was travelling… I’d booked a round-the-world ticket and it started with a very short stopover in LA before heading to NY for what I thought would be 2 weeks of inspiration… I can still remember hearing the news about Bin Laden, 2 days before I was due to fly out from NZ.. & thinking YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING!?! And then coming to realise that my inconvenience as a tourist was insignificant compared with what eventuated…
Meanwhile following my travel agents advice I flew direct to the UK and stayed at my sisters for an extra 2 weeks, thereby experiencing my first Carsten Niccolai installation and then taking a side trip to Barcelona right on the day Vespertine was released….
I distinctly remember walking into a record store in Barcelona & having to say her name 3 times in my mashed NZild accent, varying the vowells until they got it & corrected me with the Spanish pronounciation of her Icelandic name…

I have never stopped loving Vespertine since, it is embedded in my psyche from that time.. & i can only presume I was travelling with a battery powered CD player to be able to buy a CD in 2001 and actually listen to it… I also had a Tascam DAP1 DAT recorder and a pair of Oktava MK102s with me & have the recordings still, so a CD walkman thingy is very possible…. shame I wasn’t also travelling with a camera…
