Album Review

Blank – “Duden ” – [Eventuell]

Max Level   1/2/2006   12-inch, A Library

240 locked grooves on this LP, with 6 groups of 20 on each side. Blank is a trio of Frankfurt-based experimentalists who chopped up some of their recordings into sound bites, then cut those fragments into locked grooves on this 12″. Guitar strums, keyboard twinkles, feedback roars, electronic manipulations, percussive hits, etc? the record seems to be split roughly in half between “musical” sounds and bursts of noise. I checked out every one of the 240 tracks here and came up with some favorites, and I encourage you to do the same. Use them as music beds, play them solo for zen-like repetition, or mix with other locked grooves. By the way, this 12″ was originally constructed to be used by Blank themselves as instruments in live performance, each guy having his own copy to play around with. I’d love to hear the cool music/noise that must result when they do that.
