Dreieck - Eins (tape, 1981?)


A trio from Germany, but I remember this being for sale at the Tox Modell label. Now I hear this, I can see why: there is indeed a link to Tox Modell's music. It was hard to read the titles, so I left it unindexed.

Owen Sound - Sign Language (tape, Underwhich Audiographic Series, 197?)

Owen Sound is a sound-poetry ensemble founded in 1975. Originally a quartet (David Penhale left the group in 1978), they now perform as a trio which includes Micheal Dean, Steven Smith and Richard Truhlar. Their work has been characterized as an interplay between conceptuality, abstract sound, word-play, mime and theatricality. Their previous recordings include: an extended play record Meaford Tank Range published by Wild Press, a cassette Beyond The Range published by Underwhich Editions; and the anthologized 1'54"… published in the Sound Poetry issue of the Capilano Review, #31.

Dan Lander - Talking To A Loudspeaker (tape, 1989)


A piece of sound poetry and electronics. Dan Lander studied art at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax (Nova Scotia) with a focus on performance, video and sound. After leaving school he set up a modest recording studio in his apartment and developed a method of composition which sprang from his interest in phonography and the referential in recorded sound. This interest also led to his involvement as an editor of two anthologies: Sound by Artists (1990) and Radio Rethink: Art, Sound and Transmission (194). He was the producer of the radio art program The Problem with Language (CKLN, Toronto) from 1987 to 1991. His works for radio and loudspeaker are dependent on sound recordings gathered from real life situations, organized with an ear to the ways in which meaning circulates through the invisible conduit of sounding and hearing. His works have been widely aired in North America and Europe.

Cinema Verite (tape, Komakino 002, 1980)


A German duo, Andreas Hoffmann and Klaus Hoeppner, best known for their 'Der Weisse Rausch' release on ADN. Discogs lists a second tape, but not this one. They play minimal electronic music, a bit experimental, some voices, but very nice altogether.
