"The purpose of technology is not to confuse the brain but to serve the body."
(William S. Burroughs)
lopness is a collaboration between bruno silva (ondness) and pedro lopes (deadact). music you're about to listen has been improvised during the session recorded at wühlischstraße, berlin. lopes plays on turntables in percussive way* while silva contributes with sound processing. recycled reality mixed with needle's hum.
*) "i play turntables like they are full-fledged instruments, which means they can be bowed, percussed, scratched, subversed & hacked. i make my own needles and records using circuit-bending and acrylic cutting."
Note: the cassettes comes with two alternative cover art.

This is one of the most moving suites of music I have ever heard. The music wonderfully complements the narrator's story. One of the best releases of this or any year, one of the best albums this label has to offer, and one that leaves me eager to hear Scheible's next work. A difficult listen due to the emotional nature of the work, but one that is absolutely worthy of repeated journeys into Scheible's sonic world and the narrator's heartbreaking story. Alec L. Critten
Great Plunderphonics / Glitch action from Dane Law on 8 tracks that deconstruct, manipulate and rearrange music samples into new atmospheric clouds and structures of often melodic sound and intense grooves that hit hard and have an immersive sound which also has lo-fi elements in it :) SILENO
