The Basic Income Earth Network – The Art Of Boredom 3

In fact, I could imagine the piece on headphones during a train journey. I myself have not tried it yet. But it should be an older train model. One that still brings enough noise proportion with it. Noise, rattling, squeaking. And a certain speed to be achieved. A maelstrom of noise. This brief hour then go through without being interrupted by the conductor.

»Time is love« is apparent from a three-hour radio improvisation, taken on 07/13/2013. Prepared and determined, especially for this part of the program, were titles, piano motif, vocal line, beats and duration.

Jan Grünfeld – Music for plants

»Hello, I am Jan Grünfeld and this is my album “Music for plants”. When you read the title, you expect no rock’n’roll, indie or pop. Of course, the music is pretty ambient. The key ingredients for a successful track are therefore: good soil, a suntrap, occasionally rain and fresh air. Well and headphones!

The tracks are based on a live improvisation with electric guitar and a looping machine. I recorded the music in the summer of 2014 on a huge balcony of an old villa in Bad Muskau, right at the German-Polish border a very arcadian place!

During the last and this year I’ve done a few overdubs, again mainly guitar, a little piano and bass – the most important thing is to remain the live improvisations. In “Nightshade” I tried a different way of working: a vocal line distorded by the vocoder and arranged a few chilly patterns around. Every album needs a counterpoint.

I got active support of Anna Maria with singing and with her special toy orchestra. Some beautiful field-recordings were given by Bartek and Ian (my SoundCloud followers). The beautiful video to “Sower” made my labelmate Tommy.

Inspirations during the recording came from the music of Talk Talk in 1989, a few older Krautrock records and the first album by The Orb.

The highly popular title “Music for Plants” I’ve also chosen to get random hits on Google. Yes, it works! The music is free, like a suntrap. The plants grow better with my music! But not turn up too loud! And do not forget to water!«

Ana Bogner – Multiple Proportions

And then, all of a sudden, as if the storm came to an end, the room became silent. One heard a silent rattling reminding us of sundering thoughts, but still the room was silent. There was a roar of anepia around us, a shaft of light above the horizon starting to scream. Then we lay, floated, lay again on the constantly shapeshifting floor, being held by contemplation’s grip. Bridges formed, ruptures yawned, their mouthes, wide open at first, slowly closing (this is the work of our scars set in motion). There are monsters in that soul, waiting for you. The spiral repulsed, and the waves broke against the rock, untiredly seeping further towards the Nothing of this world. You’ll be found by waves which pass through everything, and if you dare to follow them, you’ll find entropy. But not an entropy of loudness, no. An entropy sketched and betokened, an entropy enmeshing and unwinding. And all of this in a feedback of reciprocity, freed from the hierarchy of a predetermined approach. It repeats and remains non-identical to itself. Since I built it in my mind i know: they haven‘t built the city we need. The room was filled with sound, but still the room was silent.

Strom An/Ein/Aus Fall – st

East Germany in the 90’s was a comatose place, so where to waste your time there? Of course we do in fictional worlds like “Sarasaland” or “Crocodile Isle”. Bound to our childhood adventures we still enjoy the Nintendo Game Boy game console, but now for real challenges in popular music.

Strom An/Ein/Aus Fall are the bioinformatician “Button A” also known as 2Pol and the artist “Button B“.

The Basic Income Earth Network – The Art Of Boredom I

Boredom is an emotional state experienced when an individual is left without anything in particular to do, and not interested in their surroundings. (Quote: Wikipedia)

The Basic Income Earth Network is a network of academics and activists interested in the idea of a universal basic income, i.e. a guaranteed minimum income based solely on citizenship and not on work requirement or charity. It serves as a link between individuals and groups committed to or interested in basic income, and fosters informed discussion on this topic throughout the world. (Quote: Wikipedia)

The music was recorded in a 4 hours lasting live improvisation in the collegiate radio-studio of Bauhaus.FM (Weimar, Germany).

Every hour had a headline. Every headline gave the words to the singer.

1 The Art Of Boredom
2 If I Had Money, I Would Have Money
3 Verarbeite, Was Dich Verarbeitet
4 If Not Now, When?

The music is made out of voice. There is nearly no other instrument been used.

Jan Grünfeld – A Trace

»The last four or five years I followed a trail. Plenty of footprints. I collected tracks, pointing in different directions. Now the traces are almost beyond recognition. But you can still listen to it. This is so cool! Goodbye little island!«

Phonotrash – Elsewhere

Elsewhere was recorded in winter 2010 in our rehearsal place. The line-up was Tomaž/bass, Simon/guitar and Borut/drums. We used an old electronic drumset with, an electric guitar with low budget fx-units, an electric bass guitar with fx unit and bass guitar synth. Everything was recorded, edited and mixed in a d.i.y. method. The aim was to create very organic and alien sounding lo-fi music.
