UNRUHR / BLACK online

super-minimal-piercing-sound-trip; bisweilen bis in die tinnitus-zone hinaufsteigend. dabei aber stets: wissenschaftlich, asketisch; reinraum. frequenzdemonstrationen inklusive obertonstudien. plus artefakte wie aus der steuerzentrale: schalter, konsolenbedienung, aufzulegende sicherungen (so die assoziationen; nicht die tatsachenbeschreibung dessen, was darius ciuta mit „objects“ meint). währenddessen verdichtet beat keller seine „feedbacker electric guitar“ (die auf dem coverbild) zu dauertönen über die einzelne obertöne irrlichtern und die objekte konterkarierend agieren. und zusammen mit dem short-wave-radio und einer wiederkehr der tinnitussounds letztendlich die ultra-minimal coda übernehmen.

versuchsanordnung: gelungen.
mission: geglückt.
jetzt: ihr.

schöne grüße

BAD ALCHEMY #92

A2 (ACK 1029, CD-R) bringt mit BEAT KELLER (an feedbacker electric guitar) jemanden zu Gehör, der in Winterthur als Leader von Keller's 10 auf Unit Records mit einer Bandbreite von Syd Barrett bis Thelonious Monk und Jürg Frey bis Louis Andriessen verblüfft. Den litauischen Leisetreter DARIUS CIUTA, bekannt als Partner von Ilia Belorukov, Bruno Duplant oder Stefen Thut, auch an seiner Seite zu finden, braucht nicht verwundern, Keller ist ja als Interpret von Frey und auch von Christian Wolff wandelweiserisch und mikrominimalistisch bestens bewandert. Kellers schweifendes oder in sich kreisendes Sirren, Surren und Dröhnen, von Ciuta sporadisch mit Schwarzweiß-, Quatsch, Shortwave Radio in der Manier von Keith Rowe bewispert, mit feinem Ticken punktiert oder winzigen perkussiven Effekten umflattert, dreht sich auf dem Ouija panisch weg von R wie Rumpelstilzchen und hin zu D wie Dornröschen. Die AC-Macher zeigen damit eine Spannweite wie ein Quetzalcoatlus.

VITAL WEEKLY

You could easily think the name Beat Keller is a wordplay on 'beats in basement', or think of The Beatles playing the Cavern, but Beat is actually not an uncommon name in Switzerland and Keller, well, that means basement in German, but also is a fairly regular last name. He plays 'feedbacker electric guitar', but is also trained as a jazz guitarist and he plays with various groups, as well as composing for other groups. I guess this new work is perhaps a bit of an oddball for him, as it sees him playing with Darius Ciuta, who plays shortwave radio and objects. This is quite far from the world of jazz, but perhaps not so far from the world of improvised music. It is, in all its subtleness, quite a radical work. The feedback produced by Keller is not always ear-piercingly loud, but it's at times pretty high pitched and generally follows slow curves when changing his pitches. Ciuta's contribution is probably no less extreme I think. At times he produces some very dry sounds, merely clicks and ticks, a bit of hiss and noise, but here too it is all very much under control. It never explodes or becomes a wall of noise. Hard to recognize a guitar in here, but also any other sound is not easy, I guess. I enjoyed this best at a somewhat lower volume; in all its abstract approach towards sound, this also has some kind of Zen-like approach, I think. Sounds move in, out and around in what could be a fairly random fashion and appear in all sorts of strange overlapping configurations. This was a great release of some excellent, different approaches.
