Meteorismo is a Finnish-Czech label, focusing on “weird music and sounds, lo-fi experiments, home made avantgarde, outsider music, freak out and all kinds of music which is does not fit anywhere.” And this is what you get, albeit the concept of “weirdness” is a strange one, “weirdness” is relative, and nowadays, when it has been co-opted ad nauseum, is weird still weird? Terrorismo is a result of a Federsel & Mäkelä "pretending to be experimental music curators". And it is not as weird as in inaccessible. There are the traces of various avantgarde sonic practices - the cut and paste, sampling, improvisation, plunderphonics, musique concrète. Then there is noise and the conscious use of the aesthetics of lo-fi, which usher in the 21st century.
This track by Slovak sound artists Andrej Danoczi features an absurd juxtaposition of a hilarious radio phoner of a religious zealot coupled with field recordings and various aural disturbances.
It’s not all sonic opulence though, there are sublime stripped-down songs like the one below.
A nice collection of “old-skool” practices, placed in a “new-skool” world, done without compromises, offered without pretensions.Reblog Like
