Tamtam’s “Rheingold” reviewed by The Sound Projector

Sam Auinger scored quite a hit with this writer in 2001, when he made Box 30/70 with Bruce Odland (appearing as O+A). I seem to recall they created a fascinating twist on the field recording genre with their innovative “box”, which sits by a roadside and does unusual things to the sound of cars rushing past.

“The Waste Land” reviewed by Data.Wave

One more cassette release that came out on the label Crónica. This record serves best to start exploring the world of the noise music.

[…]

Badet man da in Mondlicht? Strudelt man da im Ocean of Sound? Der GRM-studierte Pariser taucht einen in eine metalloide Liquidität, die er, angeregt durch Artauds “Héliogabale”, ‘Tanit Asterté’ nannte.
