ACT UP AGAINST YOUR NATURE, BE AN ARTISTIC BODY. PUT THE CONTRARIES OUT OF JOINT. EILEITHYAIA is a crypt on the Kreta-isle, which served as place for a fertility cult. Inspired by this, TBC questions the gender-construction, and reflects on what noise means or could mean. Nicely illustrated and conceptualized new work, this is a pure drone-hiss / white noise / water / field recording composition, carefully executed. As everything on ANTIINFORMATION so far, highly recommended !

Thomas Beck is the man behind TBC and he has a long standing reputation for producing music aswell as releases on his own Wachsender Prozess label. If I understand correctly his piece 'Eileithyia' was recorded at a performance on Trojan boat - safely
assuming a replica here - and at home he worked some more on the recordings. In two more or less thirty minutes TBC offers the processed sound of water - at least that's what I think. In long washes of minimalist changes, TBC slowly transforms the water sounds into vastly droning sound clouds, especially in the second piece, which I found the best one. It's a tad bit more varied with various sounds swirling in and out. [FdW / Vital Weekly]
