JANEK SCHAEFER CD which comes on a new sublabel from SUB ROSA and packed in large DVD-Box!

Manipulated field recordings are combined with live modified vinyl and found sound in a 'Concrte ruffian style' [The Wire 1998]. His most recent research has been examining the role of the record/vinyl as a compositional tool. And as in his recent " Pulled Under" he forms an enveloping and dense stream of macrosonic [close focus] soundscapes. Navigating fluidly through a series of absorbing and granular abstract environments. The raw material mostly combines modified travel recordings, live out-takes and custom made vinyl manipulations using the 'Twin' turntable. Not hearing here, his 'Tri-Phonic Turntable' was recently entered into the Guinness Book of Records as the worlds 'Most Versatile Record Player'! This important unpublished work comes from a recent sub rosa event (20-21 april 2002 in brussels). highly abstract with an obsessive slow changes including strange forms of scratchings.
