More Info

"The Oval Language is a project existing since 1987, created by Frank Berendt and Klaus-Peter John. They worked with a wide variety of artists, performers and bands: Nicolai Angelov (BG), Peter Schler, Daniel Schrnig, Wolgang Putz, Jrg Thomasius (Das Freie Orchester), Tadashi Endo (J), Guido Hbner (Das Synthetische Mischgewebe), Heiner Klus, Stefan Schwab, John Tilbury & Michael Parsons (E), Tresspassers W (NL), John Grznich & Michael Northam (USA), Rdiger Klose (Die Kastrierten Philosophen), Axel Guhlmann, Andreas Brning, Thomas N.O.R.A. Noack and Torsten Heilemann. Over the years The Oval Language took part in a number of exhibitions, happenings,performances and created various installations. Klaus-Peter John was born 1960 in Leipzig, Eastern Germany. Apprenticeship in Wood-technics (theater carpenter, I think), 1976 evening classes HGB (applied art school Leipzig) with G. Thielemann; 1989 study for social-cultural work, and since then is active noise
sound performance artist. He was interested to collect the sounds from all over the world, with this purpose he toured Northern Irland, Poland, Scotland, Easter Islands, Bulgaria, Chile, Hungary, Antarctica and France. He performed at Universitt Botanischer Garten (botanic garden of the university Leipzig), Deutsche Bcherei (former German Public Libary), Atomic Bomb Museum (Nagasaki) etc. But the audio output of The Oval Language is not so well attended, a bunch of tapes published 1986-1993, three CDR albums (one of them was produced by Jrg Thomasius), just one 10' vinyl was released by now defunct Hypnagogia label (UK), and few tracks appears on various compilations collaborative albums. This first CD album presents the old tracks restored from tapes, as well as the exclusive remixes made by Guido Hbner. It's a wonderful excursion in the world of underground noise music which is sometimes extreme but always interesting and unpredictable. This is a very special appearance in our personal music research, and a real discovery for all the fans of the experimental music genre." [label info]
