Faitiche is a sound & music platform founded in 2008 by artist Jan Jelinek. Faitiche works as a platform for Jelinek's own experiments, for joint projects, and for work by artist friends. Themes of the Faitiche catalog: fictional and multiple identities, manipulated field recordings, sound sampling/collage and copyright.
3 titles
Frank Bretschneider - abtasten_halten (vinyl LP)
Frank Bretschneider's most radical work: a self-generating composition for synthesizer modules whose sole sound source is the movement of two VU meter needles. The resulting percussive sounds coalesce into rhythmic combinations—all random, without repetition. A meditation on infinite rhythmic variation.
Jan Jelinek - Tierbeobachtungen (vinyl LP)
Jan Jelinek's album Tierbeoachtungen in a limited pressing on vinyl for the first time.
Andrew Pekler - Sounds From Phantom Islands (vinyl LP)
The soundtrack of an interactive project around phantom islands—islands that appeared on historical maps but never actually existed. A collection of fictitious soundscapes, between field recording and exotica music.
