"PPM31 - JOHN WIESE LP. FIRST PRESSING OF 500. BLACK VINYL. HEAVY UNCOATED PAPER STOCK. PRINTED INNER SLEEVES.
Description - John Wiese is an artist and composer from Los Angeles, California. His
ongoing projects include LHD and Sissy Spacek, with plenty of freelance work with many artists as diverse as Sunn O))), Wolf Eyes, Merzbow, Evan Parker, Smegma, Kevin Drumm, Cattle Decapitation, and C. Spencer Yeh (Burning
Star Core). He has toured extensively throughout the world, covering Europe,
Scandinavia and Australia as a member of Sunn O))), the UK as part of the Free Noise tour (a tentet including Evan Parker, C. Spencer Yeh, Yellow Swans, etc.), the United States alongside Wolf Eyes, and recently performed
in the 52nd Venice Biennale with artist Nico Vascellari. Consider Circle Snare a hard-wrought souvenir. Composed and realized in
the midst of a comprehensive Scandinavian/European tour in 2008, John
Wiese found himself tangled deep in dialogue with his instruments and ideas. wiese increasingly scrutinized his native tongue and vocabulary, seeking new forms of grammar and cadence, as only extensive dives in unfamiliar waters can inspire. his given electronic anatomy of drum machine, microphones, tapes, and msp folded out of their hard accustomed formations, breaking out into a more cogent and vital arsenal.
circle snare is the cumulative result, a finely detailed and dimensional evolution of an already unique voice. the circle is a spiral from the side, and the greatest trap is standing still. cd version released on no fun productions in 2009, this vinyl version is limited to 500 copies."
