Album Review

Recycling is a process wherein a complete piece of music goes "through the wringer." It is more thorough than remixing and more respectful than deconstruction. It allows the processor to maintain a spiritual dialogue with the original composer/performer even if the new piece is unrecognizable (as often happens). Vidna Obmana (aka Dirk Serries) and Asmus Tietchens invented and named the process. Motives for Recycling is their first set of recycled material. This double CD features some of Tietchens' older material (from the '70s and '80s) recycled by Serries. Serries put his minimalist stamp on the process. He also added some experimental and avant-garde sounds to give the set some originality. This highly imaginative CD will appeal to fans of Lustmord, Laszlo Hortobagyi, Jeff Greinke, and TUU.

He began recording his own home experiments in 1965 with crude reverb devices and picked up a MiniMoog several years later. Also influenced by atonal Kraut-rockers...
