VISION OFF – III: Hawking the Smoke from Distant Fires CS (VAGUE02)

The second release on WS's Vague Absolutes imprint is the first physical format product from VISION OFF. Best to avoid if you are looking for anything resembling "songs," III: Hawking the Smoke from Distant Fires, is the audio equivalent of a headspace that comes from watching modern day network news, of resigning yourself to the fact that no matter where you are, you are not safe. Nature may fire the first snipe-shot to your well being, but you are nesting in reach of any number of insatiable gulping maws of a disaster capitalist horde. You better believe that those goddamn buzzards have every tool at their disposal to exploit your misery. The assembly of this release began in 2007 and was forgotten about, finally revisited and finished, ten years later. Four harsh sound collages packaged in a Riso-printed J-card.

J.BRIGGS – 3 Mauvais Jours CS (VAGUE03)

A more dramatic approach to audio collage from the gent behind VISION OFF. “Three Bad Days” bends towards the dark, the light, and the blood-red shadows of noir-ish settings, in tension and sadness, highs and lows.
