Sascha Müller / Abstracto Concreto - Cut-Up Co Labs [Starting To Pestalozzi 003]

Put on the circuit via the underground tape imprint Starting To Pestalozzi is "Cut Up Co Labs", a collaborational - hence the title - tape album effort created by Germany's Sascha Müller and US-based artist Chris Holland a.k.a. Abstracto Concreto. Based on the medium of flexi discs the production process of sending cut up and destroyed flexi discs back and forth over the course of one year with each transatlantic transfer adding another level of damage and destruction led to a total of 23 tracks on this hour long cassette which are - obviously - of structurally randomized nature, characterized by skipping needle sounds and short sequences of ultimate sonic randomness, switching from Spoken Word to microseconds of Classical music, occasional guitars, synth bits and other sources, all falling together as a thrilling collage for fans of art movements Fluxus and Dada. If this is your sonic field of choice, go get this.
