Xylol | Stefan Funck
Gr 037 | Gruen CD-R > [Sold Out]
2 acoustic expeditions
the title "xylol" was inspired by the strange acoustics that perhaps all those may know who work with thinners… by working wit thinners like xylol one experiences a state of very tight attention with a pinching auditive reception, wich characteristics and mood led me to this piece of sound. the sorces for the sound are rain in my mobile home, drums and partypeople at a festival, engines, walking at night and in the snow, and there are electronic sounds and feedbacks also. the photos on the cover i took at the festival, the main motive is the inside of a portable toilet, which acoustics are somekind of equal to those of a xylol deliria…
the second track "wasch" is simply based on the noise-emissions of my washing-machine. this skeleton led me to expeditions into the audible worlds of water, engine, clothing and waterwork-pipes. the sounds produced in long pipe-systems again brings my to xylol because of the similarreception of the audio, and perhaps because of some similar claustrophobic feeling…
