jemh circs: s/t

Cellule 75 is a new label set up by Black To Comm's Marc Richter to release Black To Comm related music and a few select retrospective issues. The first release is the debut LP by Richter's somewhat arcane Jemh Circs alias, primarily working with voice samples culled from YouTube videos of modern-day pop music and the odd avant-garde curiosity, crafting seemingly simple loops and samples into minimal yet haunting songs, tunes, miniatures. Compared to his previous outings, Jemh Circles is a more digital and artificial sounding affair (even when working with the human voice) while still retaining the spectral melodic quality he is known for. Since 2003, Marc Richter has released eight full-length albums under the Black To Comm alias, including 2009's critically acclaimed Alphabet 1968 on Type Records and 2011's vinyl-only collaboration with the late visual artist Mike Kelley, Coldplay, Elvis & John Cage, on the En/Of label. His soundtrack for the film Earth by Singapore artist Ho Tzu Nyen came out on De Stijl in March 2012. A massive self-titled double album released in December 2014 marked his return to Type Recordings. In November 2014, Richter's first multi-channel piece was premiered in the 47-speaker Kubus Hall at ZKM Karlsruhe. In 2015, he received a commission from INA-GRM to compose a new multi-channel piece for the acousmonium premiered in Paris in January 2016 alongside new works by François Bayle and Robert Hampson. Richter composed the soundtrack for Jan van Hasselt's 2016 film Der Weiße Elefant. Edition of 300.
