7 titles
 Triosk - Triosk Meets Jan Jelinek - 1+3+1 (vinyl LP)
Remastered edition of Sydney trio Triosk and Jan Jelinek's loop-based jazz project.
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.
Jan Jelinek - The Raw and the Cooked (vinyl LP)
currently out of stock
An album version of the radio piece Vom Rohen und Gekochten (The Raw and The Cooked) originally composed and produced by Jan Jelinek for the state broadcaster SWR2, bringing together five sound collages that deal with the consistency of material and its mutability.
Andrew Pekler - Tristes Tropiques (vinyl LP)
currently out of stock
An album of “synthetic exotica & pseudo-ethnographic music”.
Andrew Pekler - Sounds From Phantom Islands (vinyl LP)
currently out of stock
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.
 Gesellschaft Zur Emanzipation Des Samples - Anthology of American Pop Music (vinyl LP)
sold out
Six great pop standards remembered: five pop songs are dissected by the duo of Helmut Schmidt and Jan Jelinek's sampler, stretched, compressed, and re-collaged. In this way, their identity is lost. What remains is a vague concreteness: flashes of déjà vu and remote echoes that evoke the original.
