Thorsten Soltau, Preslav Literary School - Grün wie Milch / Alamut (vinyl LP)
Thorsten Soltau musical cut-up piece Grün wie Milch stands alongside Preslav Literary School's drone tragedy Alamut in this wonderfully designed split album.
Limited edition of 300 copies.
Since 2009, Thorsten Soltau works exclusively with concrete audio material, plundered data carriers and vinyl sources and leaves his first proper use of digital manipulation behind. Influenced by early electronic music and the avant-garde cut-up techniques of musical and non-musical sources Thorsten Soltau decided to teach himself a form of a musical language of strange, two-dimensional musique concrete and jarring rhythms. In 2010 Thorsten Soltau created a second alias: The Elecctent People is a mysterious so-called umbrella project, where artists have the ability to perform without showing their real identities. He's the founder of the m.m label, dedicated to plunderphonics, contemporary musique concrete and Fluxus. Thorsten Soltau is an active member of Hörbar, Hamburg. Cooperations, recordings with and remixes for sound artists like: Alexei Borisov, Giovanni Di Stefano, Stefan Roigk, Herr Penschuck, Margitt Holzt... Live Performances include two invitations to the Avantgarde festival, Schiphorst. His composition Tierbeobachtungen im Merz premiered at Swiss State Radio DRS2.
As Preslav Literary School, Adam Thomas makes live tape collages using sounds drawn from an ever-growing archive of self- generated or discovered outsider noise, found sound and spoken word cassettes. A process of transference, overdubbing and live manipulation reworks these source materials into compelling, ambient broadcasts.
Mastered by Kassian Troyer.
