A few things which have developed recently and are worth mentioning here :

Travis Bird and Evan Lindorff-Ellery will be touring with Dutch filmmaker Jaap Pieters, playing sound and music to his silent Super-8 films. This is a collaboration which developed after Travis' meeting with him at the Media City Film Festival in Windsor, Ontario. We will be playing some Dense Reduction material, but primarily more improv-based sound works to accompany his films.

In other news, an email-conducted interview by Foxy Digitalis / Digitalis Industries has been posted on their site. A fine example of how we see things, now:

The Wire magazine has posted two of our tapes on their "Sleeves Received" blog, featuring "gems" received in their "mailbag". A great, simple blog, highlighting some of the fantastic printing and design work on so many records, CDs, and cassette tapes these days. Here:

Thank you

#1 : ( Notice #16 ) Evan Lindorff-Ellery : " The Tea Merchant and His Atmospheres " (C90)

Notice’s own resident artist returns with his second solo tape. The Tea Merchant and His Atmospheres is a fully realized and personal work of minimal, expressionist sound art that incorporates elements from the artist’s life, including field recordings from his home and travels as well as layers of at-home processing, including the use of radio static, room tone, and cassettes that he’s developed as half of Dense Reduction. Minimal yet highly textured sound environments run up against each other loftily like waves against foreign shores. As the pieces deepen over the course of each side, Lindorff-Ellery unfolds the mysterious connections that make up a sense of home and a sense of self. Non-narrative, nonrepresentational, closely observed and resolutely analog. Through the use of these elements, Lindorff-Ellery is mapping his life and environments. - Artwork by E. Lindorff-Ellery. Pro-printed on heavy stock. - An edition of 100. - Pro-dubbed, imprinted cassettes with classic Notice attire.

#2 : ( Notice #19 ) Tiny Music : " Epitaph " (C32)

Originally based in Chicago, Tiny Music developed a uniquely organic performance style, laying out an instrumental smorgasbord on the floor and performing acoustically—an intimate throwback that put the listener in direct contact with the band. In recorded form,Epitaph reveals even more of Tiny Music’s sense of structure and dynamics that makes their music so fascinating. The two sidelong pieces flow, as through a house or a silent film, from one musical doorway to the next—sometimes foreboding, sometimes flowering into complex or even composed musicality, but always dense and colorful. Side A meanders from its appealing din into a low drone, and Side B weaves abstract melodies through a hectic sound marketplace, with winding, squeaking, and even laughter dotting the mix, interspersed between plaintive, dark motifs. Tiny Music’s homey clatter on Epitaph uniquely mixes group improvisation, folk tradition, and pure exploration. -Artwork by E. Lindorff-Ellery. Pro-printed on heavy stock. - An edition of 100. - Pro-dubbed, imprinted cassettes with classic Notice attire.
