DIEB 13 / TOMAS KORBER / ERIKM - Condenser (Absurd)
A short but extremely meaningful set by three most accomplished names in the field of "semi-low budget" electronic improvisation. It all starts with tiny membrane-splitting frequencies coming from silence, which gradually establish their presence together with rhythmical pulses and invasive microsounds (Korber is a master of the "unrecognizable guitar") that are inexorably flanked by growing noise, scorching distortion and crazily deranged vinyl manipulation courtesy of Dieb 13. We rapidly become addicted to a progressive augmentation of sonic events and our senses start running at full speed, until everything stops abruptly after about 17 minutes. Brief and sweet - more, please.

but rather a collage of noise elements thrown into a big blender, a pressure
cooker, which heats up the music until the ultimate crash comes. These three
established improvisers know how to play together as there is a strong sense
of homogeneity in playing and it seems like all three are all well aware of
what should be done. CDR comes with a so-called 'anti-record' - for home
