Historische Aufnahmen / Historical Recordings Vol. II [Gagarin Records Promo]

An interesting, because well unusual, release is this album put on the circuit via Gagarin Records on November 1st, 2k18 on which Hamburg's famed artist and sound researcher Felix Kubin has compiled a ten track selection of rarely heard, interesting historical recordings recorded as early as 1930 as well as recent as in 2002. Extracted from sound carriers like gramophone records, reel-to-reel tapes and DAT each of these recordings, partly sounding like Musique Concrete despite being of historical and contextual nature, cover distinct historic or political events, document certain automatic mechanisms or even weird jingles, technical teaching materials for the use of leak detectors and what seem to be early experiments in electronic music. Highly fascinating stuff. Get!
