Flux Cass Collab’ is a collaboration with Kommissar Hjuler and Mama Baer (Kommissar Hjuler Und Frau) released as a CDr on their label Der Schöne Hjuler-Memorial-Fond.

The husband and wife duo sent me a track; I reworked this live in my studio through a modified/broken cassette player, circuit bent echo pedal and delay pedal. The result is a warbled, spluttering and occasionally noisy composition!

Coil Spring Works C25 is out now on the excellent and very prolific Altar of Waste Records!

“I’ve been a fan of UK sound artist Michael Ridge for a while now. Relentlessly creative, Michael runs the wonderful label Quagga Curious Sounds, which produces lovely cassettes and odd-format releases that draw from drone, hnw, harsh noise, and participates in numerous projects such as Zebra Mu and Norfolk Trotter.
Coil Spring Works is a beautiful release of yawning, gargantuan drones produced by a simple spring instrument of Michael’s own invention. Truly massive and engulfing, and at times quite lovely and restrained”. (label description)

Released in a limited edition of 10 hand-numbered copies.
