Joke Lanz & Jonas Kocher - Abstract Musette [Corvo Records 018 Promo]

Put out on the circuit via Corvo Records on February 13th, 2k20 is "Abstract Musette" by Joke Lanz and Jonas Kocher - a fifteen tracks and roughly 26 minutes spanning album piece featuring one of the most unlikely musical combinations ever. Based on a combination of turntablism and accordion experimentalism the two artists are creating somewhat of an ever culminating soundclash vs. call-and-response situation, oftentimes emulating a truly glitched out cut-up feel and collage'esque attitude, partly accompanied by additional electronic textures which is, as a conceptual approach and angle, interesting but doesn't lead to anything deeper than the pure documentation of what might be sonically possible in a setting like this, with each track seemingly being a snapshot of a session rather than a fully worked out composition. This being said the whole album is quite a dry sonic experience even if one has a thing for Fluxus, Non-Music, Cut-Up and randomized music composition and probably even might be referred to as completely unlistenable by a vast majority of people out there. File under: Novelty Music for the sake of being novel.
