Gaudenz Badrutt: Ganglions LP
Aussenraum Records presents the first solo release of Swiss sound artist Gaudenz Badrutt. On Ganglions, Badrutt sculpts sinusoidal sounds, internal and external feedback as well as voice inputs and other sources into two pieces of otherworldly music. The release takes the listener into the realm of an arthropod central nervous system and its nerve cells processing tactile and visual information (Supraesophageal). The B-Side showcases a more primitive, destructive approach that could well be aligned with a nerve cluster that processes environmental feedback from the mouth and the legs of a creature with a ventral cord. Follow the input through the segments of the ladder. Appendages are damaged and lost along the way, scrambled information leaks into vessels unprepared. Balance is barely re-established, new pathways are carved out, raw strands maintain a steady gait. Ganglions is improvised and abstract, organic livesampling- computer music. 200 copies on 180g vinyl including a download code, cut by Flo Kaufmann.
