2012 on the whole has been a fantastic year of creating and exhibiting new work as well as releasing, recording and performing under Zebra Mu. Plenty of great stuff coming up in 2013!
Here is the last batch of Zebra Mu releases for 2012:
Zebra Mu / Animal Machine: Our Present Is Your Future CS (Kifrecording Kifrec-101) edition of 10
I recorded a spontaneous noise piece for this split created with a few FX pedals and contact microphone attached to a fridge motor and plastic bag: the result is quite a dynamic and textured recording.
Zebra Mu / Blue Spectrum: Bronze Pigeon C30 (Blue Spectrum Tapes) edition of 17
A new collaboration with UK artist Blue Spectrum: we both recorded a 30 minute live track without listening to what we were recording. Furthermore our only sound source was the circuit and tape mechanism of a cassette player with no distortion pedals etc. Setting down these rules made the recording process an interesting yet challenging experience. Blue Spectrum mixed both our pieces together for the final track.
Zebra Mu / Clive Henry: Split CDr (Not on Label: Clive Henry Self-released) edition of 50
Very honoured to have a split with UK legend Clive Henry! I focused on creating a less ‘harsh’ but more subtle and ‘drone’ based sound using predominately two vibrators, a music box and Buddha machine in conjunction with the springboard.
Available directly to buy or trade:
‘LK Micro Mix’ appears on: Love Katy (Remixed) Vagary Records (Vagary: 018)
“I invited some friends and fellow artists in the HNW scene to remix some of my earlier Love Katy material. The results were varied, and each artist added their own unique take on HNW to their mix. A big THANK YOU to all those involved, and I hope you enjoy the tracks!” -label description
