CrÃ³nica is very happy to announce two new releases by Alexander Rishaug, the limited-edition LP â€œMa.Org Pa.Gitâ€ and the remix album â€œMa.Org Pa.Git Re.Mxâ€ both now available from CrÃ³nica and cronica.bandcamp.com.
Ma.Org Pa.Git is the fifth solo release from Norwegian sound artist and experimental musician Alexander Rishaug, exploring the space, the acoustics and the mechanics of a church organ, and the hiss, overtones and feedback of an old tube amp and electric guitar. The album consist of two long duration pieces that were recorded in the Norwegian Seamenâ€™s Church in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, in January 2012, and edited, mixed and digitally processed in Brugata and studio oran/zen in Berlin. Even though the material is heavily processed and recomposed, the overall feeling is genuinely spacious and acoustic.
Ma.Org Pa.Git is available as a limited edition of 200 copies, 180g vinyl, and as a digital download.
Alexander Rishaug invited artists that have been an inspiration or that influenced his work from early involvement in the experimental music scene in the mid-nineties until present. Norwegian and Oslo-based Svalastog, Dutch and Rotterdam-based Machinefabriek, Icelandic Curver, Japanese and Tokyo-based Tetsuro Yasunaga and Sakana Hosomi, member of SND and UK-based Mark Fell, Belgian-based KÃ¶hn, Norwegian-based and member of Alog, Espen Sommer Eide alias Phonophani, Canadian-based Loscil, Japanese and Kanazawa-based Asuna and Australian-based Seaworthy.
