eleh / christina kubisch Split (LP, £25.50)label: important
Christina Kubisch – Tesla's Dream. Eleh – Ohmage/Resistor. This split LP release is packaged in a letterpress printed jacket in an edition of 500 copies. This record is being released at the same time as a new full length from Eleh titled Home Age. Christina Kubisch contemplates Nicolai Tesla and his concept of electrical remoteness as it applies to the modern world. In this piece Kubisch considers whether this is the future Tesla envisioned and what remoteness means in an age where remoteness hardly exists at all. Tesla's Dream includes electromagnetic field recordings from tramways, analog machines, light systems, power stations, airports, banks, security systems, advertising and the sounds of discharges and activities of Tesla's own devices. Recorded all over the world. Eleh's composition Ohmage/Resistor utilises a new kind of spaciousness and was composed for piano & Serge STS modular synthesisers. Though Tesla was not a consideration when the piece was recorded it takes on a new meaning and is well paired with Kubisch's.
