midnight doctors (phil begg/ hapsburg braganza)
ltd edition of 250 copies. 180gm vinyl Although a live show is now on the horizon, The Midnight Doctors was initially conceived of purely as a recording project- a collage of styles and approaches, not definable by any of its individual constituent parts- which include scored pieces, structured improvisations, (mostly) loving pastiche, cut-up jams, hi-fi & lo-fi textures, electroacoustic flourishes, both studio and home/location recordings. The record mutates and exaggerates various absorbed inspirations from the margins, back-catalogues and dustbins of popular culture (particularly soundtracks), the avant-garde (various brow-heights) and traditional musics. Taken as a whole however, the record is equally inspired by the diffuse tradition of artists who have treated the production/recording process as an integral part of the composition itself- particularly the shoestring experimentations of Joe Meek, the studio recordings of Faust & Neu! (with Uwe Nettelbeck & Conny Plank respectively) and, more broadly speaking, modern electroacoustic music and some of the more interesting examples of cinematic sound design. more by the artist >
