Cover November Mix 2019

Juni Mix 2011 was a label special from Brighton based label FatCat Records. Now again, only FatCat records, but more specific. In 1997 they started a series of 24 releases called Split Series, each 12″ presents 2 music acts, one on each side. First they where quite active, released for example 4 records in 1999. Then it went a bit more lazy, no records in 2006 and 2007, the last one was in 2014 (number 23). So, only one more to go. I’m not so much a collector in terms of records, but this series i had to collect all. And since a long time i was thinking about doing this mix when the last record is released. But some weeks ago i asked FatCat about this last one and they wrote „Unsure of a release date for #24 as yet“. Well, now i couldn’t wait, and anyway 24 records would be too much for a 30 minutes mix. So i picked 10 records between the first and the for now last Split records and mixed it together in a more or less chronological order. Oh, and also the covers are very nice. Every record sleeve has handmade holes in it, each catalogue number one more. Only one hole is missing… https://www.discogs.com/label/376393-Fat-Cat-Split-Series

This mix starts and ends with chanting by María Sabina in the Mazatec language, wich is spoken by indigene people in Mexico. It was recorded 1955 during mushroom rites. This is the frame and the only „original“ recording of a ritual mix. The other tracks are more recent interpretations of rites or use recordings of rituals. Cat-Man-Do by H.U.M. uses Heloise’s recordings of a shamanic initiation in the Colombian jungle. Virtual Forest is using different ritual music recordings wich are woven into psychedelic drones. The song about a ritual union called „marriage“ by Little Dragon is accompanied and followed by White Stains. Their 3 hours opus „The Work Workings“ wich was recorded 1989/1990 was a process of exploration of ritual.

Music for dance. All the music in this mix was written for dance pieces. The LP Connected was composed for the dance by Chunky Move. Gabriel Salomon’s music was produced for The Sensationalists by 605 Collective and Theater Replacement. Mads Emil Nielson made the 2 tracks on this 7inch for „Med Hånden På Hjertet“, a dance performance by Aaben Dans. Sigur Ros has written Ba Ba Ti Ki Di Do for Merce Cunningham’s dance piece „Split Sides“. The song’s final part Di Do features cut-up samples of the choreographer’s voice. Up to here there is more recent music (2004-2018). Charles Cohen’s Water was produced 1976 for Group Motion Dance Theater. The last track of this mix was conceived for dance training and exercices and is taken from the 1974 LP Creative-Music by the two french percussionists.

All the tracks in this mix where recorded in churches. Using the church organs, but also electronics, piano and the church bells. The first track is a recording from 1965 showing the results of Charlemagne Palestine playing the 26-bell carillon at the St. Thomas Episcopal Church in New York City every day since he was 15 years old until he left to study in 1970. Michael Bonaventura’s piece is recorded at All Saint Church, Blackheath, London. Tim Hecker recorded the album Ravedeath, 1972 at Fríkirkjan Church in Reykjavik. Dustin O’Halloran recorded Vorleben on (what he states) „the most beautiful piano i have ever played“ with the amazing acoustics of the Grunewald Church in Berlin. Gegenschein by Aine O’Dwyer was recorded at the Franciscan Friary in Limerick City. And finaly, again Charlemagne Palestine (more than 50 years later than the Bells Studies) played the piano in the Washington Square Church in New York City.

„Space is the place“ where Sun Ra came from. He landed on earth in the early 1950ies and founded his Arkestra with often changing members. They released more than one hundred records, some on Sun Ra’s own label „Saturn“ (like the LP Continuation). The american Free-Jazz pioneer, important figure in Afrofuturism and founder of Comsmic Jazz died in 1993. Since then Marshal Allen is leading the Arkestra and they are still touring (not to be missed!)
Most of the tracks in this mix are by Sun Ra and his Arkestra. They appeared under various names like Sun Ra & His Astro-Infinity Arkestra, Sun Ra & His Omniverse Jet-Set Arkestra, Sun Ra & His Intergalactic Myth-Science Solar Arkestra, Sun Ra & His Ethnic Structural Cosmo Arkestra, Sun Ra & His Cosmo Love Adventure Arkestra, and so on… Marshal Allen and Kash Killion (track 6) are still playing in the Sun Ra Arkestra. Phil Cohran and Eugene Easton (track 7) used to play in the Arkestra in the early 1960ies. Also members from The Art Ensemble Of Chicago where playing with Sun Ra. The track by Austin Peralta from 2012 is an interpretation of Sun Ra’s track from the early 70ies. All City Records released a series of three 12″s with one original recording from The Sun Ra Arkestra and on the other side one interpretation of a recent producer.
So hold on, our rocket take off to planet venus. Zoom! Up in the air!

The first idea of this mix was to use only transparent vinyl. Listening to some of these records it went more in direction of transparent music. So, i used only clear vinyl records and searched for a transparent sound on these records. You can see through it, right?!
