puls plus puls
Faitiche is delighted to announce a new release: puls plus puls, Sven-Åke Johansson & Jan Jelinek, LP & DL, recorded live at SYN/CUSSION Festival, Radialsystem Berlin 2017. Art work by Teresa Iten, liner notes by Diedrich Diederichsen - out now on Ni Vu Ni Connu and soon available at the faitiche webshop as well.
"Whether the drummer mimics the machine or the machine mimics the drummer is no longer a question for cultural critique or estrangement theory: rhythmitised assembly on the factory line concerns only a minor part of today’s working world. More important is the animistic core question: Is the subject (drummer) contained in the beat or does he lose himself to the beat? Or does he follow an experimental setup that functions like a composition or a conceptualist experiment, that allows for both, considers both?" D. Diederichsen
