This is the complete thisquietarmy live performance that took place at Centro Cultural Sao Paulo in Brazil on June 23rd, 2013. The concert marked the end of the TQA Brazilian tour where he performed 14 shows through May & June 2013 to promote the split LP with Sao Paulo-based band Labirinto released on Dissenso Recordings.
For this “homecoming” Brazilian gig, thisquietarmy performs a special encore with two members from Labirinto: Muriel Curi on drums/electronics & Ricardo Pereira on bass.
The DVD compiles and crossovers video footage by Claud Peer & Rodrigo Florentino with thisquietarmy’s live visuals and the live soundboard audio recording from CCSP. The whole thing was entirely edited & mastered by Eric Quach back at TQA.HQ in Montreal, Canada.
The DVD includes 4 live photographs of the performance by Daniel Moura, and the package was designed, printed, hand-cut and assembled by Eric Quach/TQA Records. The DVDs are silver/black DVD-Rs, burnt as NTSC and should work on all new DVD players and DVD-roms.
Quadtych Volume One presents Parts One and Two of Cam Deasʼ colossal Quadtych for 12 string guitar, a four part piece spanning over 70 minutes in total.
Recorded in one evening at Londonʼs Roundhouse in December 2010 by Jack Allett, though over a year and a half since its initial sketches, it is his first composed work for 12 string guitar since the 2009 split tour LP with Spoono/Jack Allett on Blackest Rainbow.
Limited copies available: Dekorder return to the release schedule with this Deutsch-Amerikanische meeting of two Meisters of the Modular Electronic Music System (originally invented by Don Buchla in 1963 for the likes of Morton Subotnick, Ramon Sender, Terry Riley et al at the San Francisco Tape Music Center). Both are presenting very distinct approaches displaying the vast possibilities of the machine yet maintaining similar Klang aesthetics (and maximum quality).
Mind Over Mirrors might not be a household name, but the brain behind the project, Jaime Fennelly, has been involved in numerous acclaimed and respected projects over the last few years. Primarily known for his work as an integral member of Peeesseye, he’s also involved with Acid Birds, Manpack Variant and Phantom Limb & Bison.
‘The Voice Rolling’ is his first solo record in five years and the first under this new moniker. First and foremost, this is a harmonium record and that’s important to remember because it doesn’t sound like any other harmonium record you’ve likely heard. Nearly all of the sounds created were made using a medium-sized Indian harmonium and then processed electronically via tape echo, harmonizer and other guitar pedals. Add in the fact that it was recorded to tape and you get a dense, warm record full of grit and emotion.
