Mt030 Dosenöffner “Push For Signal” c60 + download
the duo of Peter Keller (aka Unser Verhängis, Scholl, Condon Horro, Bacillus) and Casey Chittenden Jones creates evolving textures of modular noise ranging from the harsh to the understated. an intriguing collection of improvised sounds captured live.
mt031 SCHOLL “Angesichts Konstanter” c60 + download
augmented debut release by this new project from Peter Keller (Unser Verhängnis, Condo Horro, Dosenöffner, Bacillus, ad infinitum). repetitive noise for a paranoid dancefloor that doesn’t exist.
Hello everyone! Here’s a doozy of an update for you. TWO new releases as well as “this machine…” shirts reprinted and in more sizes (XS and XL)!
mt028- RIEN “the grey tape” c40
the sound of implosion, of sound eating itself. we hear what is left behind.
stellar static noise (and sub sonic) minimalism from this prolific swedish provocateur.
mt029- VERHALTEN “corrupted structures v.2” c60
Second in a continuing series of releases for Verhalten. Distorted rhythms are woven with crackling walls of noise and syncopated sine waves pushing the further reaches of the audio spectrum. An exercise in tonality, texture and repetition. A minimalist exploration of the structures humanity creates to its own detriment.
Cassettes, downloads and shirts are all available now from Modern Tapes.
artist copies are enroute and will be available at live performances and online from them soonly.
hot on the heels of last month’s release of Number, Verhalten returns with a brand new two track, 22min EP that will serve as the first in a series of releases called Corrupted Structures. Based on inconsistency and a sense of chaos as much as it is based on repetition and the build of inertia, Corrupted Structures v.1 crumbles and hisses all around us just like the people, movements and institutions we feed daily.
limited edition of 15.
It was june of 2016. Froe Char was playing a show in Belgrade, Serbia with the newly minted Unur alias, Verhalten. The opening act for the night starts. A young woman with a single sampler begins a kinetic and intriguing set. We have just witnessed Shaan. As the evening progresses everyone starts talking and as we have an extra couple days in Belgrade we make plans to hang out more, then to make some music together and as this friendship forms, so does an idea. “why don’t you do a tape for modern tapes?” Here is just that:
It is 2017. US political conversation is getting more frustrating and inane as the days go on. A balance between activism and nihilism is all we have to keep ourselves sane. We feel anonymous, we feel numb. In a fit of isolated incredulousness, VH decides to make something that feels immediate, something that feels more like a live set. Each track is constructed live on modular synth and contact microphones. We now have Number.
After much waiting and a couple delays the new Volhnn and Unser Verhängnis tapes are available.
mt023 Volhnn “artefact” c60 limited edition of 15
cold and bleak ambient noise wall project of this French provocateur, otherwise known by his Chier alias.
mt024 Unser Verhängnis “Peace Is A Lasting Legacy When The Earth Is A Silent Grave” 2xc60 limited edition of 15
Grim, ambient noise walls for the contemplation of our undoing. double cassette from this project of the ever prolific Peter Keller aka Condo Horro.
packaged in aluminum boxes with photocopied artwork and insert along with a download code and “this machine kills fascists” sticker.
more in the pipeline for 2018
Hey good people of the internet, i made some shirts and stickers for us electronic music/modular nrrrds out there. they express a sentiment i adapted from Woody Guthrie’s guitar back in 1941 when he was singing protest songs against wealthy and racist americans not seeming to have any problem with what was happening in Germany/Europe at the time. Feel free to draw parallels without hyperbole, please.
The money made from selling said shirts and stickers are going to Life After Hate, an organization that provides an exit strategy for people who are involved in many of the white supremacist subcultures in the US, they are the only non-profit i could find who does this. good for them.
here is a link to order.
