“A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded, vol.2: Ubiquitous Eternal Live” reviewed by Obradek

Autodigest machen es der hörerschaft nicht leicht, schnell-beschleunigte Tonsamples und Sprachaufnahmen sind lärmend übereinander geschichtet, um uns dann wieder abrupt in das digitale nichts zu schicken. Komprimierte Tonaufnahmen jeglicher Tonquelle bringen die freiheit des konsumrausches auf den punkt: warum sich mit weniger zufrieden geben als mit Autodigest ? CDs sind spottbillig und die gewinnspanne ist […]

Clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap… L’ovni sonore de l’année ! Soit l’alignement ininterrompu, pendant une heure, d’applaudissements captés à la fin d’une multitude de spectacles. Un patchwork à mettre au compte d’Autodigest, un des projet les plus emblématique du “media-label” Crónica. Un mystérieux collectif (ou artiste solo) se faisant un malin plaisir de dynamiter […]

Why applaud? To make a noise, to show approval, because it’s part of the social contract of seeing a performance. (The Magnetic Fields’ Stephin Merritt, who has hearing problems, reportedly requests that his audience shows its appreciation by snapping fingers instead of clapping.) Applause is an artless noise; it reinforces the power relationship between the […]

La Crónica si sta velocemente imponendo all’attenzione degli appasionati di ellettronica ‘colta’ grazie a pubblicazioni che cercano di rimettere in gioco il discorso intrapeso dal movimento glitch. (…) Il secondo volume realizzato dal progetto Autodigest prosegue invece all’insegna dell’eccedenza: un’unica traccia interamente registrata con applausi e urla del pubblico, un progressivo climax che, come è […]

Accompanied by mysterious pictures of nearly deserted places, but with a blurred photo of a cheering crowd in a stadium or concert hall, Autodigest’s new installment is a tough one to, ahem, digest. Conceived as a “history of audience applause” (“Somewhere along the way, we seem to have forgotten what exactly we were cheering for… […]

At first, it makes you think of a bad joke or a divertissement: an infinite round of cheer and applause sampled from live recordings, more or less the same for long minutes. Then you notice it: there’s a drone – a dark, deep growl – lurking under all this mess. The low buzz slowly grows, […]

Avec leur projet conceptuel plutôt dingue capable de jouer des concerts d’une seconde comme de compresser en un seul album toute l+histoire de la musique, les Portugais anonymes d’Autodigest poursuivent leur exploration des limites de la composition à l’heure où quelques secondes suffisent à télécharger un titre qu’il faudra cinq minutes pour écouter, et peut-être […]

In den Diskursen der Photographie und der bildenden Kunst geht die Idee ja schon etwas länger um: die Aufstellung eines Kanons, einer Bibliothek von archetypischen Bildern, die individuelle Bildproduktion eventuell einmal überflüssig machen. Ein erhellendes Beispiel aus den 60er Jahren ist Hans-Peter Feldmanns “Bilderfundus” aus vermeintlich unkünstlerischen Babyphotos und Passbildern, der Fragen über die Wahrnehmung […]

Mit diesem Release darf ich mich zur Gruppe der Legastheniker zählen. Wider besseren Wissens versucht die Wahrnehmung mir zu vermitteln, dass da Audiogeist und nicht Autodigest steht. Diese Unverbesserlichkeit liegt vermutlich darin begründet, dass der hier anzutreffende einstündige Applaus natürlich noch eine weitere Ebene in sich birgt. Es wird nicht die Art Applaus nachvollzogen, die […]

“A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded, vol.2: Ubiquitous Eternal Live” reviewed by Blow Up

Questo Autodigest inizia a starmi parecchio simpatico. II primo volume della sua storia compressa di tutto quello che è stato registrato (BU#69) conteneva una poltiglia indistinta di noise digitale alternata da stasi ambientali, a significare il riassunyo, ‘velocizzato’ e iper-condcnsato, di tutti i materiali musicali registrati nella storia della musica (!), come se 1’autore avesse […]
