Holger Bischoff: Tapes, Korg, Glocken

cover-art by Holger Bischoff
design by EMERGE


released July 4, 2016


I continued my trip into the great unknown with one Holger Bischoff, who works as Konkete Anti-Wulst, which, despite many years studying the German language in school, I can't translate, and it goes also for the title. When they were a duo, I reviewed their 'Unsichtbare Zwilinge' (Vital Weekly 946). The cover looks a bit like an old HNAS record, and seeing 'tapes, korg and glocken' mentioned (the latter meaning 'bells', I knew that), I hoped for a fine manipulation of bell sounds with a reel-to-reel tape machine; the rough edge of musique concrete. That is not the case, and just like the last time I got it wrong. The forty-eight minute piece is quite loud, and seems to me some kind of 'direct-to-tape' action piece. Surely 'rough' is the right word here. Somewhere between minute mark 12 and 17 the volume drops a bit, but otherwise it is on the same level and that is loud. It's the kind of power electronics/industrial music that was once popular, and luckily this comes without the obligatory imagery of porn and swastikas. I can imagine listening to this factory floor (the bells! the bells! where are they?), is surely great to do, on that spot, in that time frame, but is it also for an external listener? I am not sure here.




partikelmusik auf granularebene. zumindest diese assoziation drängt konkete anti wulst mit „die gespenstische misthaufen-konserve“ auf.
nach kurzem luftholen setzt die noisekakophonie ein, ein sich umtosen einzelner unidentifizierbarer (auf dem cover aber genannter) quellsounds, so eng und dicht, dass jede individualidentifizierung fehlschlagen muss. mit dauernder veränderung auf jeder ebene und das so schnell und, wegen der unzahl der ebenen, so dicht. dass diese maximale veränderung zum stillstand wird, sich lange nichts mehr zu verändern scheint. plötzlich, nach minuten des chaos, ein milisekundenlanges aufbäumen eines einzelsounds, vergleichbar einem aus der schwarzen, trümmergefüllten windhose herausgeschleuderten artefakt, das erst in diesem moment als solches erkennbar wird. und so bis zum aus. hör- und kraftprobe. stille im sturm erst bei maximaler lautstärke als maximales paradoxon.

schöne grüße
