More Info

AU ist ein niederlndisches experimental ambience-Duo, die ohne Computer auskommen und live improvisierend in einen floating state of mind kommen.... fliessend-gurgelnder Untergrund trifft auf allerlei Klangfitzel, pre-recorded tapes, analoge sounds, etc.. eine dronig-sphrisch-elektronische Improvisation. Kommt im schnen braunen razorblade-Cover. To explore !

Au stands, in Dutch for 'ouch', but it's also the two first letters from Audio - I guess the music of Au is more about the latter than to really hurt. Au, Paul Klaui and Jan Borchers, are from The Hague (but not connected to the famous The Hague electro-scene) and have two CDs out so far (besides a whole bunch of CRs, cassettes and even mini-discs), "Non-Existing Output" (on their own Grond Records label) and "Recycling" (on Locust Media/Met Life). Both of these CDs were a culmination and a full stop to what they did up until that point, and in that respect their live recording for VPRO radio in the 'Mort Aux Vaches' series is no different. Past elements return here, like the bicycle ride used on "Recycling", but now embedded in electronica. New elements for Au, like acoustic sounds and found sound, are used here for the first time, so in that respect 'Mort Aux Vaches' is the breakpoint between old and new. Rather than using computers, Au likes analogue electronica. ......a very fine disc in a very fine series. [FdW / Vital Weekly]
