More Info

Einen ganz anderen Charakter als "Inwaard" nimmt der zweite Teil der Zusammenarbeit von Z'EV & FRANS DE WAARD an. OUTWAARD wird dominiert von schwer chzenden & tiefbassigen organischen Klngen, Tiergerusche sind vernehmbar aber so sehr verfemdet dass man sich wie in einem fremden Dschungel mit 10facher Gravitationskraft vorkommt.. (in der Tat beruhen alle Sounds auf field recordings von Frans die er in einem Kleintier-Zoo machte). Z'EV hat sich stilistisch mehrfach gewandelt, und OUTWAARD ist wieder ein beeindruckendes Zeugnis von seiner Transformationsfhigkeit.
Bengstigend gut !!

"For close to forty years z'ev has been at the absolute fore front of new musics. Playing his unique brand of percussive music he gained a lot of attention, but in more recent years he returned to working with electro-acoustic manipulations. Since 2003 he has also begun a wide ranging series of collaborations, working with Francisco Lopez, Stephen O'Malley, David Jackman/Organum and Oren Ambarchi among others. One such ongoing collaboration is with Frans de Waard, with whom he released 'Forwaard' in April 2007 and 'Outwaard' is the next installment. Whereas the sound sources used on 'Forwaard' where of a varying nature, on 'Outwaard' they were all made at a petting zoo in Kleve, Germany. These recordings which are 'recoded' by z'ev into a forty minute, densely layered pattern of musique concrete. Many of the animal call like sounds disappear in the 'recoded' version and makes a particular strong work, but occasionally one returns and leaves a no less than haunting listening experience. The cover contains field photography Frans de Waard and was designed by Meeuw Muzak. It comes in the 15x15 cm cover that Korm Plastics has used before." [label info]
