Gazelle Twin

I Feel Blood / Exorcise (ACE 236 Series)

Gazelle Twin were originally invited as part of the Supersonic Festival 2015 curation of the Moog Sound Lab satellite sessions at Birmingham City University.

The twin returned to the lab during it’s residency later that year at London’s Ace Hotel in Shoreditch. for a consecutive six day session in August, invited artists mooged, wined, dined, slept and dreamt in room 236. on tap 24/7 - the entire Moog Sound Lab, along with a Brion Gysin ‘Dream Machine” & a small library of associated books & user manuals. Here Gazelle Twin re-made/re-modeled, recorded & filmed new versions of two of their favourite tracks on the wall-to-wall moogs.

"I Feel Blood" is a brutalist and abstract workout; tearing and reversed synth shards rotating against a synthesized deep rumble and spring-reverberated smash. The perfect atmosphere to impart doom and destructionist ideals onto its audience.

"Exorcise" is quick fire, rotary acid. Comprised of multi concentric arps rotating just slightly out of sync to create movement and fluctuation. Moog-synthesized drums supply a percolated, bubbling rhythm before warbled vox complete the 'song' like element of the structure.

Easily one of the best of the series so far! Recommended.


STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: The Moog Recordings Library series has been an eye-opening and fascinating look into the working practices of well-known musicians (very interesting for me), and a damn good listen (very interesting for everyone else). This outing is one of the best of the bunch, with Bernholz's skill as a sound sculptor coming to the fore through a variety of hardware processes.

Mika Vainio

Lydspor One & Two (Blue TB7 Series)

Moog Recordings Library is the record arm of Moog Sound Lab which was created and loaned by Moog Music Inc as a celebration of the life and work of Dr Robert Moog. Across 2015 and 2016 the project invited a who's who of contempory electronic artists for a 'conference' around the celebrated synthesizer. This week we see the fruits of these sessions via releases by Mika Vainio, Hieroglyphic Being and The Grid.

Mika visited the Moog Sound-Lab in April 2015. He made one his last known solo studio recordings in the form of two vinyl sized side long pieces. Entitled "Lydspor" - Danish for ‘Soundtrack’. Mika worked almost exclusively with the lab’s Moog Modular System 55. This UK sound-lab instrument is the sole protoype model (containing several golden filters) of Moog’s recent sold out reverse-engineered edition (55 units only) recreating the 1970’s classic. On completion of his sessions Mika announced ‘I could work with this machine for the rest of my life….I would need nothing else”. A second Moog session was planned but tragically Mika died in an accident in April 2017, shortly after he had approved the vinyl mastering. 


STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: The late, great electronic genius Mika Vainio brings his imitable ambient electronics to Moog Recordings Library for his superb suite of simmering industrial electronics and crushing, static drone.
