Experimental lute player Jozef Van Wissem and acclaimed film director and musician Jim Jarmusch have a working relationship that dates back to 2006, when they ran into each other on the street in New York City and quickly struck up a friendship. Van Wissem contributed to the soundtrack for Jarmusch’s 2013 movie Only Lovers Left Alive, and the two have collaborated on three previous studio albums — ApokatastasisConcerning the Entrance Into Eternity, and The Mystery of HeavenAn Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil is their second release as a duo for Sacred Bones Records, following The Mystery of Heaven, and its narrative picks up where that album left off.Like The Mystery of HeavenAn Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil delves into the theology of William Blakeand Emanuel Swedenborg, this time also exploring the work of Russian occultist and philosopher Helena Blavatsky. The album is mostly instrumental, so the dialogue between the esoteric thinkers who inspired it and Van Wissem and Jarmusch is expressed primarily in the song titles — fittingly arcane phrases like “Concerning the White Horse,” “The Two Paths,” “When the Sun Rises Do You Not See A Round Disc of Fire.”Musically, the album finds much of its power in minimalism. Van Wissem’s lute traces the outlines of subdued electronics and ominous guitar drones laid down by Jarmusch. It’s a subtle album, and repeat listens reveal vast depths in its dark corners. Above all, it’s an album that sees two formidable collaborators complement each other brilliantly.An Attempt To Draw Aside The Veil is another adventure with Jozef into the realm of vibrating strings and the dreamlike musical textures of darkness and light,” Jarmusch said of the album.“It was a real pleasure to collaborate with Jozef once again.”

Spheric Music presents the new release 

Rudolf Heimann „Die Unendlichkeit des Augenblicks“

Spheric Music SMCD 8306
Release Date: February 1st, 2019

EAN-Code: 4260107470854                    Distribution:  H’Art Musikvertrieb 

Style: Cinematic Electronic 

Die Unendlichkeit des Augenblicks = The Infinity of the Moment

Does God exist? What is infinity? Rudolf Heimann will not answer these fundamental questions for us. But he invites us to pose them and to ponder with them by taking us on a fascinating musical and spiritual journey. “Wem die Stunde schlägt” (For Whom the Bell Tolls) or “Ad Infinitum” encourage us to question the very meaning of life.

Heimann carefully reinterprets the relevance of ancient Christian ideas in contemporary life and society, importantly however, entirely without taking sides.

On his last track “Rede des toten Christus vom Weltgebäude herab, dass kein Gott sei” (30 min.), Heimann goes even further. Set to a lyric crafted in 1797 by German Romanticist Jean Paul and narrated by Roland Paroth, he readily enables us to rediscover our own world of dreams and fantasies. Can we be sure about reality? How can we grasp the eternal?

In this new musical adventure, Heimann takes his signature style to the next level, blending Berlin School synthesizer music with orchestral film score elements in unique and creative ways. Carefully weaving natural instrument sounds such as acoustic guitar, cello and church organ together with thick synthetic sound layers, and occasionally adding surprising rock and spiritual elements (“Niemand kennt Zeit noch Stunde“), Heimann invites us to travel through a rich and ever evolving landscape of sound. Enjoy listening!

Legendary industrial / leftfield band LEFT HAND RIGHT HAND formed in 1986 when former members of Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth affiliated band ZAHGURIM met THE COLONELS.

This album curates tracks from their three principal sets: ‘Humdrum’ (1990, People Who Can’t), ‘Legs Akimbo’ (1992, World Serpent) and ‘In Mufti’ (1995, Musica Maxima Magnetica) – notable for their heavy percussive and ritual elements.

For recordings (and their experimental live sets) they attracted great collaborators including Lol Coxhill, Charlie Collins (Clock DVA), Karl Blake (Lemon Kittens, Shock Headed Peters) and fire-breathing vocalist Polleke Wijnberg.

“Whirlwind dervish jigs around the junkyard, all sulphurous vocals, thrashing percussion and burning fiddles” (Rhythm Magazine).

Emotional exploration through sound can become so indulgent that it overshadows the journey. JH1.FS3 eschews mining the human condition as mediation, opting for nuanced analysis rather than vanity. Using the seeds of improvisation as their root construct, the duo work without code, vocabulary or genre. Instead, they systematically work as individuals in tandem, using disparate and varied sounds and sources to create gauzy collages of ideas, sound and visceral sense reaction.

Comprised of Frederikke Hoffmeier (Puce Mary) and Jesse Sanes (Liebestod), JH1.FS3 delineates a more subtle “cinema of the ear”, and a cold approach to reflecting on experience without leveraging tropes or familiarity.

“We try to reconcile these emotionally massive things in a way that is sincere and measured, but without being sappily diaristic or confessional,” they explain. “A cinematic quality develops really quickly and our attempts to traffic in generalizations, unbiased observers of ‘relationships’ gets turned on its head. We find these sets of unique errors that feel more like Super-8 (film) home footage.”

This transference allows cracks and fissured to be filled in new ways, where error is championed—highlighted as intention rather than happenstance. Throughout Trials and Tribulations, their debut LP for Dais records, the reconnection of idea and experience conducted with surgical diligence becomes a mode to deconstruct familiarity through shade and accident.

With each exposition on Trials and Tribulations, the duo ornately explores the relationship between space and time by reconfiguring the tendrils and fissures that bind them. Percussive oscillations, descant vocals, and deconstructed patterns create fields that vibrate, plunge, and drone. Sequentially, each track contributes a lucid vignette to the larger account, engaging the listener to query where, when, and how they’re being driven. The contrast of “Aleppo In Headlines,” with its thrusting syncopation to the cautious beauty of “At the Bottom of the Night” compounds and depth and disquisition of the duo’s process.

DIE FORM newsletter
January 2019 Dear friends and partners,

We wish you all the best for 2019 and thank you for your support and loyalty!!!
We are preparing many projects, including a new album, several compilations and re-issues of rare and unreleased works (music and images).

The first one is “SOME EXPERIENCES WITH SHOCK” vinyl LP limited Artist Edition:60 copies from the 500 copies Dark Entries Records DE232 edition
PLUS an original signed A4 print on Epson Archival Matte paper
PLUS 5 cards in a signed envelope
PLUS free digital downloadPrice: 49,80 EUR incl. VAT or 41,50 EUR (export) + shipping costsYou can order your copy at BAIN TOTAL: baintotal[at]wanadoo[dot]fr
or Big Cartel:

Originally released in 1984, it has been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios / Berkeley from the original tapes.“With SOME EXPERIENCES WITH SHOCK, issued in 1984 on Terrace & Maky (TM) in classic vinyl limited edition, DIE FORM add a more extreme dimension to their work.
The first part, recorded in studio with analog equipment, contrasts with the second side, improvised in the fever of paramedical oppression, with aggressive sonorities from new digital synthesizers.
Devoted to the madness (the phantom of Antonin ARTAUD is not far) and handling the machines with instinct, DIE FORM advance on the way of industrial electronic creation, without concession.”
