apestaartje : a label, a collective, a symbol used to specify a location apestaartje, currently based in New York, was founded in Chicago in 1998 as a media arts collective and as a record label to distribute the audio works of the collective. apestaartje is dedicated to exploring new technologies and techniques as well as expanding on many traditions from the past. Four performers involved with apestaartje will give four concerts on this evening.
Anderegg is one of the founding members of the apestaartje collective. His work has been described as "an ever-shifting composition of nervous trembles, ticks and spasms gently coaxed from acoustic instruments, field recordings and all things electronic, that is then obsessively obscured as if beneath a fluttering veil that allows only brief flashes of detail while carefully filtering the remainder". His second album 'anomia' has just been released on April 15th 2003.
Aero is the solo project of apestaartje co-founder and label head Koen Holtkamp. His work has been described as "a complex synthetic recreation of something unspecifically organic, in other words, an assemblage of sound capable of transforming the listener's conception of time and space." (AG, other music). His second album titled 'rises and falls' will be released on apestaartje in July 2003.
Minamo, an electroacoustic quartet from Tokyo featuring several key players in the contemporary Japanese improvised music scene (Tetsuro Yasunaga, Keiichi Sugimoto, Namiko Sasamotosk) sound is an organic blend of experimental electronics with instrumentation (guitar, synth, saxophone, computer etc) that evokes everything from classical minimalism to more serene folk stylings. Their third album titled 'beautiful' will be released on apestaartje on April 15th 2003.
Collin Olan is a Chicago based sound artist, improviser and software engineer who recently released his debut 3" cd titled 'rec01' on apestaartje. BBC Music On-line stated, "Olan's contact mics unlock a sound world previously hidden from the ear, where tiny events are magnified to dramatic scale." He is currently working on a full length album to be released on apestaartje in late summer 2003.
