Meelkop, Roel – “6 (mailcop Rules) ” – [Intransitive]

These are recordings of Roel’s from 1985-1995 and released in the late 90s. The cd starts off with track 1 laying down the deepest drone sounds, lush and layering over each other like clouds in quicktime. The second piece is unaudible vocals mixed in with what sounds like crunching electronic icicle blades. Rough and tough. Track 3 is as minimal as you can get with just the sound of a ticking clock. Makes you feel empty and alone, void of life. As if sitting in your deceased grandparents apartment in San Francisco. Track 4 is a 22 minute trip through your repressed memories. Quick little electronic bugs flitter in and out for a few minutes between arty pauses of silence. It picks up shortly with waves of low pulses and the sound of children in the playground. Shifting and floating. For the voyeurs, about halfway through you get the moans of people having sex mixed with running water, huh? Loads more of samples come in including burps, bird
chirps, crumpling of bags, old time piano music and quick clips of random things. That track is pretty all over the place. Track 5 is once again a slab of noise. Bumps of distorted low vocals mixed with a thundershower of electronic rain. The final track is another low flying drone. Listening to the ocean waves at night with the window closed type of feel. I love it!
