Hey hey hey, Mort Aux Vaches is back, and so is the Italian experimental noiser Massimo Sapienza (remember him from the 1999 releases "Massimo" and "Minimo", which mean maximum and minimum, respectively? - cmp older issues of Chain D.L.K.). The 27 year old computer nerd became part of the laptop-musicians league and moved away from microwave music to step into the brighter (or darker?) light of "industrielectronoisics" (I just came up with that all by myself, aren't you proud? ;-). His "Mort Aux Vaches" contains live performances at VPro Radio 5 which tend to be willing to move toward an insane and illogical all-noise rawness but instead actually maintain a pretty astonishing balance between hard core power electronics and industrial noise... Even though there are no percussive element, there is a quite definite rhythmical soul to this sound and I like that a lot better than just plain distorted static distortion. The guy's deeply involved with musicians of the like and has already released several things for you to look for (don't look too far!). The VPro sleeve this time is cardboard with perforated lettering, quite smart.
