This double album presents Column One and their experimental approach to sound at its best.”Cindy, Loraine & Hank” a collection of incestuous figures, a museum of small, lovely bastards. Products of passion & weakness, disorientation and dedication, of dull instincts and narrowness. Twins, triplets, octuplets, dyslexic, presidents, beginners, criminal citizens, sacred Neanderthals, expert idiots. Begotten in haste, hidden in the dirt, covered with garbage.
A contourless, monstrous void in the cardigan of the great-grandmother.
A voyage through the labyrinthine mind of Column One… a surreal, organic projection.
Idiotenmusik – field recordings – orchestral variations – cut-up´s – musique concrete – collage
The CDs are housed in a digipak sleeve and the album is strictly limited to 500 copies. The cover was designed by Robert Schalinski, based on “Black Depths” print (1974) by John Hiliard.
The idea behind the recording of this material was to the creation of sonic miniatures, short forms created from the acoustic preparations or electro-acoustic sources resulting in numerous sound experiments which Tomasz Twardawa has been known of. As a result, the album is composed of fifteen tracks in total, mostly shorter tracks, which are more than one hour of music.
‘Last’ is the end of a chapter, as the title indicates. This is the last studio album in the discography of Genetic Transmission. This one is the end and the summary of Tomasz Twardawa’s activities under this banner. And also the last, 9th part of the IYHHH series, presenting interesting discoveries or unusual sounds from Polish artists in an unconventional way.
The album is released in an ecopack with a postcard and limited to 444 hand-numbered copies.
‘Funeral Musik for You and Me’ is the follow-up of the ideas that guided the creation of the previous Marchoff album entitled ‘Funeral Musik für Jenny Marchoff’. However, in this case, it is devoid of a personal element, which was the laudation or registration of tormenting feelings after the loss of a loved one, and is more of a reflection on the meaning of life and death. The common denominator for both discs is certainly the nature of work and the type of measures, which helped Marek X. Marchoff during the recording sessions. While recording he also used analogue audio sources, including synthesizers of this type. This time he also invited his friend Tom Kalinovsky to collaborate on this album. Music, though far from the stem of Different State and 23 Threads styles, is equally interesting, intriguing and even inspiring.
As in the case of ‘Funeral Musik für Jenny Marchoff’, the material has not been mastered in order to preserve the original shape and character of the ‘Funeral Musik for You and Me’ album as it was at the time of recordings.
The album is released in an ecopak strictly limited to 300 copies.
