MD 039: SCATTERWOUND – 0.0

Some years ago Dirk Serries and N started to think about a collaboration after they toured together. And yes, that was also our idea, when we visited some shows where they played four alternating sets without a final fifth climax of playing together.

But there is this urban legend that says, that once there was this fifth set during a soundcheck. They also recorded this collaboration and forgot about it until they randomly listened to the tracks during a harddrive search for something else.

And that´s the point 0.0, the beginning of the confraternity. The start of the musical ritual between those two distinguished ambient and drone musicians.

“0.0” features two epic tracks, which of course sound like Dirk Serries and N but also not, because there is this certain mood, a special dynamic and energy without restraint.

Noisy guitars with floating soundscapes lumber through the speakers. Is it just Dirk Serries and N or are there also Dylan Carlson and Stephen O´Malley? No, this is Scatterwound.

“0.0” comes as black tape with a minimal square inlay, because: Minimal visuals, maximum sounds.

The pouch-sleeve is made of thick grey canvas, with black and white stitches. All handmade. Limited to 50 copies.

Only available at the Moving Noises Festival 2017.

Update: All remaining copies are available here (selling from 07.02.2017 at 20:00 german time)

MD 025: AIDAN BAKER / N / DIRK SERRIES – ENOMENI

enomeni-artwork

Some years ago, when we (Cosima & Dimi) visited a live performance of Dirk Serries Microphonics, he asked us, if we ever will marry and we answered, that if we do, Dirk had to play a wedding concert for us. Back then, it was just a running joke. Well, finally we ended up with a wedding band consisting of our three favorite artists Dirk Serries, N and Aidan Baker.

Dirk Serries, Aidan Baker and N

“Enomeni” (which is greek and means “connected”) is a document of a very special live performance. Aidan Baker, N and Dirk Serries came together for the first time to play an improvised live session. The result is an one hour session, divided into four tracks, which show up an impressively increasing soundjourney with accentuating moments, ending up in a massive drone with squeaking and buzzing guitars.

The set starts very cautious and you can hear how the three musicians are coming together to build up an epic track, in which they find their perfect roles. Aidan Baker takes over the rhythm section by looping some sweeping sounds, N builds up a valley of ambient and drone sounds with hills, mountains and endless horizons and Dirk Serries rounds up everything by accompanying both or bringing in some accents like bowed guitar sounds.  Like mentioned before everything ends up in an encore which also could bring you in mind, that they were joined by members of Sunn o))) or Earth for a big drone finale.

Tracklist:
A – 17:38 – Ritual I
B – 17:04 – Ritual II
C – 10:14 – Ritual III
D – 13:50 – Ritual IV

The set was mastered for vinyl by Fear Falls Burning (Dirk Serries), being divided into four tracks, each one hosted on one 12inch side. The artwork is made by N, using photos by Cosima made in Greece during the church wedding vacations.
