Stephan Mathieu has been on my radar for a while now. His 2008 release on Die Schachtel titled Radioland had a profound impact on my psyche. Then there was his 2009 collaboration with 12k‘s own Taylor Deupree for a release on Spekk titled Transcriptions. In 2011, Mathieu managed to release two albums – there’s the Remain on Line (now independently operated by Richard Chartier), and, the focus of this Sound Bytes special, A Static Place. To listen to Mathieu’s latest marvel, I have to prepare myself

Interview with Stephan Mathieu. Lets start at the beginning. What is the concept behind Radioland and what particular aesthetic did you attempt to convey? I started using a shortwave receiver with my setup in 2005, shortly after my album The Sad Mac had been released. For this pieces I had worked with various players of acoustic instruments, who played little sketches I had written for them. I used those recordings as a live input for my software instrument and made a final step away from multitracking and arranging music in favour to a mainly autogenerative process

Notes

A set of four double-sided acetate 10" records with recordings of layered end-grooves from early 1900s 78RPM records plus a set of four historical Columbia "Grafonola 201" mechanical-acoustic gramophones from the early 1930s, all restored to perfect working condition by Stephan Mathieu.

The acetates can be played back on the Grafonolas using a manually adjustable speed range between appr. 30 to 80RPM, the individual record sides can be combined to form an endless piece, well, depending how long you are into re-winding the mechanisms. A fully wound Grafonola spins for appr. 6 minutes at 78RPM.

Comes with 12 special Trailer Needles, historical new old stock from the 1930s, designed for acetate playback. The acetates will desintegrate slowly with each play, while this process is part of the piece. You can play the acetates over and over again.
