Piece 2
Piece 3
Piece 4

Collaborative improvisations self-recorded at Fylkingen in Stockholm by pianist Leo Svirsky and violinist Katt Hernandez, both American-born exploratory musicians living in Europe. Leo asked us (quite a while ago) if we could put out this out on a tape, telling us the media form would be appropriate as the recording sounds “very black metal” – to make a long story short. Two very modern composers performing a genre-pulling twist of noise and note. The cover artwork is a collage by Berlin artist Tippi Tillvind. We put together hand-crafted cardstock boxes to house the cassette tape and a second print of the art. Must say this took a while to get out as SF was pretty inactive earlier this year!

Throughout the autumn of 2011 Silver Spring, Maryland free-tronica/electro-prov group Psychedelic Jam Band (P.J.B.) began to collaborate on new music with computer specialist and good friend Eddie Neuhauser. With a dual-chamber (live room, control room) space secured in the basement of a newly-furnished Northwest DC rowhouse, the Digital Research project was born from constant recording of jamming-out on electronic instruments, mapping samples to keyboards, designing synth patches, and rigorous late-night post-production. Warm, flowing pads, 808-kit hits, ambient synthesized harmonies, and playful MIDI plucked strings create 38 minutes of sounds that seem to be coming from between late-’80s synth-pop and early-’90s IDM (of course slowed down with a heavy dose of alcohol). Unlike the P.J.B.’s studio recordings, there are no overdubs here – all instruments played to track live and in full ensemble. Appearances by members of Noise Complaint, Eulot Mauta.

Dirty organ-heavy reggae and brain-bending, bassguitar-thru-synthbox dub jams drenched with analog stompbox noisescapes and reverb tribal percussion. Melodic guitar- and synth-work make sure this half-hour EP isn’t short of any ambient industrial electronica and even a little rock ‘n roll.

slowfidelity.com is back online

the hub and keystone of the entire Slow Fidelity online network – slowfidelity.com – is now live, again, once more.

the design and function of the website is set to evolve and is currently being constructed as i type.

this wordpress blog will no longer serve as the temporary core of our online presence. rather, it will serve its purpose as no more than the web log that it is. that is important.

version three is going to be more than we’ve ever done. right now that means less, and it is spread throughout the social-networking universe:
