V.A. - Captured Music (P16.D4/S.B.O.T.H.I./Asmus Tietchens/etc..



Basically an experiment in cut-up using live recordings from the Captured Music Festival as source.

Side 1: transformation of the basic material, organized and composed by
P16.D4.
Artists (source material): Hafler Trio, Nicolas Collins, Christian Marclay, Nachtluft, P16.D4, Psychic Television (Genesis and Paula P-Orrige, on this occasion), S.B.O.T.H.I., Elliott Sharp and Asmus Tietchens.

Side 2: Further transformation of side 1 by Asmus Tietechen, S.B.O.T.H.I., and Nachtluft.


From the linernotes:
"Captured Music-Festival: 25th - 27th February 1987, Karlsruhe, Germany. Concerts of 'classical' electroaccoustic music of the 50's and 60's, confronted with actual productions. Crucial point: the different aspects of cut up- techniques, problems of authorship.
All recorded during the festival. Instead of 'authentic' live- documentation: Continuation of the principles of work used during the festival: The recordings of the festival themselves are the cut-up material.
Extensive fragmentation of the material: expansion, reorganisation, detail selection and combination resulting in nine short pieces. The original side of SIDE 1 remains the recognizable working model, the sound treatment concentrating on the specific interface, resulting from the confrontation, in a supportive or opposing manner; the treatment being determined by the original material's inherent structure. The complex of nine pieces and ten breaks should be understood as a 'passage' between complex 1 (Tietchens) and 3 (Nachtluft), In addition to the resulting 'third generation documentation' the process is opened up the the eventual fourth."

This LP Was released on Selektion Records in 1989, cat#

The downloads you have given for Side A and Side B are the same thing when listened to. I don't know if I am listening to Side A or Side B. Please correct this and upload the missing side.
