'Angelic Technology' - two cassettes with a small booklet containing submissions from each artist. This is another favorite compilation of mine from Japan although it features many non-Japanese artists and released several years later than 'Foam'. I purchased this in the late 80's, probably via RRR Records who are still operating. I only wish I had purchased more cassettes offered back then that are near impossible to find these days.
I really like just about every piece on this collection - here are some descriptions of a few:
Pedro Javier Gonzalez & Feliu Gasull: Both contribute flamenco-styled guitar pieces which are quite uncommon on a compilation of this sort - a refreshing change.
Conrad Schnitzler - 'Untitled': This piece is actually titled 'Nummer 6' and consists of lo-key, yet frenetic factory-like movements with some synth bubbling in the background.
Haiginsha - 'CI Falt': Scraping drones similar to early Organum.
Merzbow - 'Enviromental Percussion #4': My favorite Merzbow track. Not a full-frontal noise accualt, but quite rhythmic. Can anyone comment on how other titles in this series sound, or similar tracks by Merzbow?
Asmus Tietchens - 'Hydro-Linear' pt.2': One of his many amazing pieces of recorded water/drain sounds.
HNAS - 'Was Wir 6': Somewhere between Organum & Tibetan bowl music. On of my top 2 or 3 tracks by HNAS.
Bene Gesserit - 'Les Flamme Del'efer': Minimal synth piece accentuated with French female spoken word & laughing.
DDAA - This might also be my favorite DDAA piece. Sounds like the entire track consists of
layers of vocals from melodic humming, vocal percussion noises & rhythms and a bit of talking/singing.
Haters - 'Fuechen': Honey look, cars crashing, over and over....
