More Info

"Tourette Records is proud to announce the release of DZERZHINSK-9 by DAO+COH (Andrej Kolesov and Ivan Pavlov). Originally recorded in 1996, this collection of previously unreleased material showcases COH's trademark audio experimentation, and the collaborative spark shared by both artists.

DZERZHINSK-9 represents some of the earliest work by this duo, and pre-dates Pavlov's first solo release on raster-noton.de by 2 years. This potent collection of intense and dark experimental material is a result of a live-in-the-studio improvised session recorded during one of Ivan's visits to DAO studio in Dzerzhinsk, Russia. Performed with hand-made digital and analogue equipment, and recorded onto a 4-track cassette deck, this is a gem of curiosity to anyone with interest for COH and electronic music in general.

Russian-born Ivan Pavlov is well known for his solo work as COH spanning more than 20 releases, including collaborative projects with the likes of Coil and Cosey Fanni Tutti. He currently works with Peter Christopherson (Throbbing Gristle, Coil) in SOISONG. Ivan's university friend, Andrej Kolesov (aka DAO), is a musician who has previously contributed to the album COH: STRINGS (2007), playing saz and oud. A new joint work by Andrej and Ivan is currently in the works." [label info]
