Travel By Goods collect four acutely contrasting live presentations by Mark Fell, Miles Whittaker, Some Truths (Bass Clef), and Joane Skyler, recorded in Basel, Switzerland, September 28, 2013 for the closing party of Thomas Baldischwyler's "Hot Knobbing" installation at Oslo 10. The record presents 12+ minute tracks from each contributor's set yielding very different results from different approaches. Joane Skyler manipulates chrome cassettes with digital and analog means to make an emphatically scatty, funked-up sound prone to fold and veer off at angles in highly visual geometries, whereas Ralf Cumbers aka Some Truths indulges in pure analog electronics to realize a roiling tunnel of plonging bass and contoured bleeps informed by a trained musical sensibility. On the other hand, Miles (Demdike Stare) uses hands-on hardware and computers to traverse spectral, electro-acoustic techno dimensions, and finally, Mark Fell presents a cascade of razor-sharp electronic rhythms and strobing chords modeled in-the-box with MAX software. 2LP set with insert and printed inners. Edition of 400 copies.
