I am pretty certain that Toulemonde has good reasons for doing things the way he does them, and that they are probably related to the text. Still, even when I don't understand the words, I have the feeling that Toulemonde has put too much emphasis on the content in this work. I miss a certain atmosphere and maybe also some kind of empathy with his subject. It's all a little too clean, in a way. On their most recent CD, Emulsion, they continue to explore the areas of ambient music, but less through synths and more through samples.
This results in a more haunting, a more dark sound and at the same time a more continous sound. Repeating and looping get a bigger part in the Tear Ceremony sound. The big charm of Tear Ceremony is that they manage to keep the stuff concise and to the point. Their eleven tracks are all around 4 to 5 minutes and sound distinctively different. If we'd give ratings from 1 to 10, I'd give this a 7.
FdW Address: www. I know Cutler's vaguely, as I am too young to like Henry Cow. But I do know he is well or was not very impressed by people using samplers et all.
Dimuzio's work seems to run entirely on digitalia and samplers. Although the interview was old, I think this is the first time something of their collaboration surfaces. In total 18 tracks in 45 minutes, of 34 are captured in one concert and 10 in another.
Small amplified percussion next a drumkit, objects and a CD player are the ingredients put forward by Cutler and Dimuzio takes his samples from that and builts further. The result is a very nice mixture of improvisation and places the silent bits next to all the noisy bits, which seem inherent to such a release. Even when indexed with so many starting points, the whole CD comes like one long flow.
A nice flow indeed. The first is one is split by said Vertonen and Crawl Unit. Both work with location recordings. Crawl Unit records watery sounds - the first piece is called 'phase for south river', so it has the river and rain - which gradually go over into some more high pitched sound which I never heard outside , which turns out to be a looped which goes out of phase hello Steve Reich! Very nice, very direct and very naive and I mean this positively Hafler Trio. Vertonen's 'Ward Island Circulation' doesn't tell the story of what sort of location it uses, which is, indeed, some island.
It could have been some sort of industrial area, wth hugh turbines and other rotating sound.

Both pieces are very fine examples of what location recordings can do and they both sound very nice. More work from Vertonen can be found on a 7" by Autonotext.
Vertonen does the sound here, which is a remote thing far away. The main portion consists of various layers of simultanous voices.
