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

The second release from the Vague Absolutes imprint is the first physical release 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 the feeling that comes from watching modern day network news, of resigning yourself to the fact that no matter where you are, you are sitting in the nest of the enemy, and the enemy has every tool at their disposal to create your misery, profit off your misery, or both. 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 1960s cinematic noire film scores in tension and sadness, but ends on an almost peppy — in a Mary Tyler Moore kinda way — clear-headed jaunt off  the screen.
