asmus tietchens: parergon

Asmus Tietchens, one of the most prolific German composers in the Electronic/Musique Concrete direction since late 70's, releases 25 years after Daseinsverfehlung his second release on Dark Vinyl's sublabel Stille Andacht. 'Parergon' (Greek 'collection of small texts') is the sequel of the idea to continue to recycle recyclings of recyclings. That does not mean remixes or deconstructions but much more genuine compositions derived from already repeatedly recycled structures. This approach is in no case hermetic because no circular course happens: There is no way back to the beginning. With digital tools -- but without chance operations -- one can achieve treatments and processing which lead to a nearly endless multitude of esthetic relevant compositions derived from once defined basic structures. In this connection 'sampling' is not of importance. The pieces of Parergon do not intend to provoke pictures or moods, but will give the listener simply something to listen to - it is up to him how he handles this offer. In consequence the pieces have no titles. Instead they have index data which point to certain series. Parergon has been composed in dark times, but at the best only the artwork reflects this conditions. The sounds themselves come from the vacuum
