SPOERRI AND BETHA SARASIN, BRUNO - AX+BY+CZ+D=0 (AKA KUNST AM COMPUTER) (LP)


"Here is the second release from this new archival series brought to you by the combined inquisitive minds behind Pre-Cert Home Entertainment and Finders Keepers as they continue to share the results of some of their most subaqueous vinyl, tape and film excavations yet. This previously un-travelled and un-promoted aural thesis documents a one-off 1982 collaboration between the Zurich born music technologist Spoerri and theoretical material mechanic Miss Betha Sarasin as they collectively embrace computer technology to the advantage of their individual artistic disciplines resulting in a series of startling melodic and non-melodic peices using electromagnetically oscillated stainless steel "instrument sculptures". For Spoerri enthusiasts this record presents the musician in a new light. AX+BY+CZ+D=0 (AKA Kunst Am Computer) both sonically and stylistically reveald a darker side to Spoerri's music pre-flecting the recent favour for "industrial" and "drone" aesthetics in contemporary experimental recordings and bridging a comparative unison with other unconscious European contemporaries such as Gruppo d'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, Giuliano Sorgini and Egisto Macchi (from Italy) and Igor Wakewich and Richard Pinhas (from France) and the darker Czech soundtrack work of Zdenek Liska."
