3 Banditos (S / D)

3 Banditos is the result of a successful collaboration evolved.
Frankfurt based Tobias Schmitt and Jair-Rohm Parker Wells, who lives
in Sweden first met in October of 2004 when they performed together at
the Forum for Experimental Music in Frankfurt. Schmitt on laptop and
Parker Wells on the Fichter electric double bass augmented by
electronics proved to be an inspired combination and the two made it a
point to perform as often as possible at venues hosting improvised
electro-acoustic music around Germany. The live performances where
always well received and filled with exciting twists and turns of
discovery. The pair knew immediately that this was something to be
documented and distributed to a larger audience. After a couple of
failed direct to DAT attempts at their live gigs, local Frankfurter
musician and studio owner Tomislav Bucalic (who had previously
collaborated with Schmitt on Suspicion Breeds Confidence) stepped up
to the plate and offered the duo space in his studio along with his
skills on bass and processed Fender Rhodes as well as varied and
sundry other instruments and objects. In November 2005 the three
entered Bucalic’s studio and performed the improvisation that would
become the first 3 Banditos release „Sympathy for the Donkey“.



Circuitnoise is a random fluctuation in an electrical signal, a
characteristic of all electronic circuits. Noise generated by
electronic devices varies greatly, as it can be produced by several
different effects. Thermal and shot noise are unavoidable and due to
the laws of nature, rather than to the device exhibiting them, while
other types depend mostly on manufacturing quality and semiconductor

The aim of the Circuitnoise project is to discover the vast field of
random noises through electronic devices. Nothing more nothing less…

LDX$40 (EU)

Die seit 2007 andauernde Banken-, Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise zeigt
mehr als deutlich, dass die Ideale der Profitmaximierung und
Akkumulation nicht mit der nötigen Zielstrebigkeit verfolgt wurden.
Die Lösung besteht in der Rückbesinnung auf den ökonomischen Geist der
80er- und 90er-Jahre sowie der Rückkehr zu dessen Werkzeugen und
Vorgehensweisen (mit den Mitteln der modernen Technologie). LDX$40
versteht sich als künstlerische Speerspitze dieser Bewegung und
liefert vermittels einer Synthese aus zeitgenössischer
Experimentalmusik und der Hardware der 80er-Jahre den Soundtrack für
die Rückkehr zu dem erfolgreichsten Sozial- und Wirtschaftsmodell der
postmodernen Welt – exklusive Acht-Bit-Musik für die Finanzeliten des
21. Jahrhunderts.

Alle Macht dem Kapital.
