Info (English):
Can – The Lost Tapes, the long awaited box set of unreleased studio, soundtrack and live material, is out soon via Spoon Records / Mute.

The Lost Tapes, out on 18 June 2012, was curated by Irmin Schmidt and Daniel Miller, compiled by Irmin Schmidt and Jono Podmore, and edited by Jono Podmore.

When the legendary Can studio in Weilerswist was sold to the German Rock N Pop Museum, they bought everything, including the army mattresses that covered the walls for sound protection, and relocated it to Gronau.

Whilst dismantling the studio, master tapes were found and stored in the Spoon archive. With barely legible labeling, no one was sure what was on these until Irmin Schmidt and long time collaborator Jono Podmore started to go through over 30 hours of music.

What they found was years of archived material, not outtakes, but rather tracks which had been shelved for a variety of reasons – soundtracks to films that were never released and tracks that didn’t make it onto the final versions of albums due to space.

Irmin Schmidt explains “Obviously the tapes weren’t really lost, but were left in the cupboards of the studio archives for so long everybody just forgot about them. Everybody except Hildegard, who watches over Can and its work like the dragon over the gold of the Nibelungen and doesn’t allow forgetting.”

The final cut of tracks, dating from 1968-1977, features studio material recorded at Schloss Nörvenich and Can Studio, Weilerswist with the Can line up of Holger Czukay on bass, Michael Karoli on guitars, Jaki Liebezeit on drums and Irmin Schmidt on keyboards, and on most tracks, vocals from Malcolm Mooney or Damo Suzuki.

Can was formed by ex-student of Stockhausen Irmin Schmidt, who, fired by the sounds of Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa abandoned his career in classic music to form a group which could utilise and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music.

Can’s influence is well known and far-reaching and the impact they made on music is felt today as keenly as it ever has been. They themselves have always been impossible to classify and reflecting this, the scope of artists who in recent years have cited Can as a major influence is varied from John Lydon to Radiohead, The Fall to Portishead.

With a phenomenal cannon of work that includes Tago Mago, which celebrated its 40th Anniversary in 2011 (the anniversary release was awarded 5* from MOJO, Uncut, Artrocker and Record Collector), The Lost Tapes is an opportunity to hear unreleased material from this iconic band – whoever thought that would be possible?

Info (German):
“Das vielleicht beste CAN Album überhaupt.” (Daniel Miller am Rand der GoodToGo-Convention am 21.06.2012

The Lost Tapes ist eine Sammlung von 30 unveröffentlichten Tracks aus den Jahren von 1968 – 1977, mit ausführlichen Linernotes von Irmin Schmidt und einem Essay von Ian Harrison im 28-seitigen 10-Inch Booklet. Sie müssten eigentlich The Forgotten Tapes heißen – jahrzehntelang waren sie tatsächlich in Vergessenheit geraten. Insofern sind diese
Aufnahmen keine Outtakes, Rarities, Versionen, B-Ware; sondern unbekanntes original Material. Kuratiert von Irmin Schmidt und Daniel Miller, stellten Schmidt und Jono Podmore aus der riesigen Sammlung die Compilation zusammen, Podmore schließlich machte den Edit. Und damit sind wir auch schon bei der Geschichte der Lost Tapes.

Vor kurzer Zeit erwarb das Rock N Pop Museum das legendäre CAN Studio in Weilerswist, um es in Gronau erneut zu errichten. Während der Abbauarbeiten wurde eine Vielzahl an unetikettierten Master-Bänder in einem alten Archiv-Schrank gefunden, mehr als 30 Stunden Material, das Schmidt und Podmore durchhörten.

Was sie fanden, waren archivierte Songs aus mehreren Jahren, keine Outtakes, sondern Tracks, die aus verschiedensten Gründen nie veröffentlicht wurden.

Irmin Schmidt: “Natürlich waren die Bänder nicht wirklich verloren gegangen, lagen aber schon so lange in den Schränken des Archivs, dass sie mit der Zeit einfach vergessen worden sind. Außer von Hildegard, die CAN und ihr Werk behütet, wie der Drache das Nibelungengold und Vergessen nicht zulässt.”

Die finalen Versionen der Tracks von 1968-1977 wurden seinerzeit in der Besetzung Holger Czukay (bs), Michael Karoli (git), Jaki Liebezeit (dr) und Irmin Schmidt (key) auf Schloss Nörvenich, später in den CAN Studios in Weilerswist eingespielt. Der Gesang kam bei den meisten Aufnahmen von Malcom Mooney oder Damo Suzuki.

CAN wurde von Stockhausen Schüler Irmin Schmidt gegründet, der inspiriert von der Musik von Hendrix und Zappa, seine Karriere in der klassischen Musik an den Nagel hängte. Stattdessen formierte er eine Band um sich, die alle Grenzen zwischen den althergebrachten Musikstilen einreißen sollte und experimentelle elektronische Musik mit moderner Klassik verband.

CANs Einfluss ist weithin spürbar. Zu den Bewunderern der Band gehören John Lydon, Radiohead, New Order, The Fall und Geoff Barrow (Portishead), der erst letztes Jahr erwähnte, dass CAN seine “absolute Lieblingsband und –inspirationsquelle” seien.

Nach einem beeindruckenden, mittlerweile kanonisch zu nennenden OEvre, inklusive dem “Klassiker” Tago Mago, der letztes Jahr sein 40stes Jubiläum begehen durfte, bieten The Lost Tapes nun die Möglichkeit, NEUES von dieser wegweisenden Band zu hören – wer hatte damit rechnen können?

Info:
We’re excited to announce the release of a unique collaboration between acclaimed British composer Gabriel Prokofiev and emerging cellist Peter Gregson. ‘Cello Multitracks’ is a dance suite for cello nonet, conceived as a multitrack work to be performed by just one cellist. The world premiere was at LSO St Lukes, London in May 2011, with Peter playing one part live and the remaining parts covered by an ensemble of eight loudspeakers.

This suite of four contrasting movements takes influences from both electronic dance music and older, more traditional classical forms. Each piece paints a distinct picture: The opener ‘Outta Pulsor’ builds up a ghostly ostinato whose subtle micro-tunings create a mysterious, fluid backdrop, over which lyrical strokes call out expressively. ‘Jerk Driver’ (already released as a single along with a music video) layers jerking melodies over mechanical Grime and Rave motifs, eventually morphing into a more classical interlude. ‘Float Dance’ spins elegant, hocketing patterns to create a twisted renaissance atmosphere, while closing movement ‘Tuff Strum’ explores the extremes of pizzicato technique to build a syncopated groove.

‘Cello Multitracks’ continues Prokofiev’s interest in reconnecting concert music with a sense of what is contemporary and tangible: “Classical music has a long history of using dance forms that are popular at the time, a very exciting approach that has been largely neglected recently.” As the performer, Gregson comments that Prokofiev’s vocabulary of sounds is “pulled from a wider net than anything else I’ve worked on before. It wasn’t just about learning the notes and rhythms (although this was a big thing, too!) – the most important thing was to be able to recreate sounds from electronica and dance music acoustically.” In this context, Peter Gregson’s own contribution was invaluable: “the fact that Peter makes his own electronic music and has a lot of studio experience, meant that he ‘got’ the music straight away and we were on the same wavelength immediately.”

The disc also contains remixes of the original music with renowned contributors including Tim Exile (Warp Records) and DJ Spooky, in styles ranging from dubstep and hip-hop to techno and glitchy electro. The last twelve months have been busy for Prokofiev, with commissions for Bern Ballet, the Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire and his BBC Proms debut in 2011, along with DJ sets everywhere from New York to a Peckham car park. Most recently, his Concerto for Bass Drum and Orchestra was given its UK premiere at a packed Roundhouse (London) with Joby Burgess and the London Contemporary Orchestra.

24-year-old cellist Peter Gregson has a growing international reputation. He has premiered works by Steve Reich, Daniel Bjarnason, Martin Suckling, Tod Machover, Max Richter and others, and regularly collaborates with some of the world’s leading technologists.

Info:
For our next release, we have a very special cooperation to show off with: CASSEGRAIN & TIN MAN !

CASSEGRAIN are Greek-British producer Alex Tsiridis and Berlin/Vienna based composer and producer Hüseyin Evirgen. With a well developped sensitiveness the duo designs futuristic and dark techno soundscapes with a strong experimental touch.

TIN MAN is another outstanding artist and the second half of this collaboration. With his releases on Cheap Records, Global A and the Sähkö-sub label Keys of Life he proved well, how easily he can switch between strong classic acid and abstract, postmodern songwriting.

The tracks that resulted from this very special collaboration, are exactly what you might expect: An ideal and unique combination of modern dark techno as it comes from labels such as prologue or stroboscopic artefacts and classic acid. Some of them aim directly at the dancefloor, some come along rather dreamy and spaced out.

Perfect for KILLEKILL.
