JOCHEN ARBEIT & MICHAEL ESPOSITO - ALL THE FUCKING VOICES (7" flexi disc by Phantom Archives/Firework Editions)
It's been a while since I last saw a flexi from Michael Esposito, but he is still releasing them. In all of these releases the use of Electronic Voice Phenomena play an important role - the voices from unexplained areas, or as some would say 'beyond'. Esposito no longer has a fixed label to release these, but who ever he works with get a label mention. Perhaps a bit chaotic for true fans, but all the nicer. He handles the graphic side of things and the gives the raw EVP sound material to be used to the artist. In this case Jochen Arbeit, erstwhile member of Einsturzende Neubauten, Die Haut and such like, but here he has some electronic rhythm going on, which holds up surprisingly well in the format of a flexi disc. A strong minimal beat and bass rhythm and the EVPs coming to us loud and clear, and in an ever-growing majority. Limited copies come with the same music but then pressed onto an x-ray disc, in true ancient soviet style. An excellent piece of music. It's a pity (but
this is
what I always think when I review these) that these pieces are so short and limited to one side only. And hopefully one day a collection of all of these pieces would be great! So far: an excellent series, and this is another great addition. (FdW)
