Phauss - Audiodrome [Room40 Promo]

And here we go with the next Phauss re-issue on the ever active Australian imprint Room40 which now brings back "Audiodrome", the first ever full length album effort thought up by Carl Michael Von Hauswolff and Erik Pauser under their shared conjunctional alias. Originally released in 1987 on the Swedish label Radium 226.05 the "Audiodrome" album, which has been back on the circuit since December 16th, 2k22, caters two extended pieces recorded in 1983 and 1986 respectively, "Zürich - Zürich" and "Alger - Lagos", which are making extensive use of Field Recording techniques as a means of documentation and original source material for later re-arrangement and re-combination of recordings, a muffled amalgamation of Plunderphonics, Musique Concrete and urban city scores, randomly recorded by a predetermined methodology in unnamed and sonically unrecognizable places, densely layered in part to create a thundering maelstrom of Urban Noize x Ambient Concrete whilst other sequences, especially in the second long form piece, present a spine-tingling take on raw, super experimental Swedish ProtoIndustrial which is about to resonate with the inner circle of die-hard Avantgarde, Noize and Non-Music lovers for sure. Defo a well interesting historical document - and quite an intense journey. Go check.
