tr nch - live at artmospheric festival 2011 [anatomy 16]

the 16th anatomy has arrived: a two-hour recording of dave twomey's dj set as tr nch, at artmospheric festival 2011!

tr nch artmospheric anatomy 16

dave is a man of many hats: a world traveler (currently residing in the UK after living in japan for years), a DJ and producer otherwise known as tr nch (earlier this year, his collaboration with iori was released on the time to express label), a party promoter... he is also battling cancer, and doing it in an unconventional yet determined way while raising money for his treatment.

today, we're sharing dave's dj set as tr nch, recorded live at the fifth annual artmospheric festival in sofia, bulgaria on july 23rd, 2011. we also have a rough tracklist, but please read on, as dave and i trade words about his music, his mariana party concept, his travels, and his treatment fundraiser.

Tell us about how you connected with Time To Express and Iori for 'Barreleye'.
I met Peter at Labyrinth 2008 following email contact beginning with streams of praise from me for his T2X debut 'Trusted' EP, which is still in my record box today. That year at Laby we cemented our friendship on the dancefloor over a bottle of tequila, bad dancing (speaking for myself only of course) & air punches, which we try to continue every year at Labyrinth. Anyway, I dropped the demo of Barreleye in 2009 at my Mariana event in Tokyo right at the end of my set, at which Peter was guest DJ. I had built the crowd up as I love to just right & to be fair the crowd did go pretty wild. Peter came up to the booth & signed it pretty much on the spot! To be honest I didn't really believe him at the time so was very nice when we got it out. Iori I met in 2009 on a Mariana tour with Cio (D'Or) & Mike (Parker); it didn't take long before we were swapping ideas to and fro & 'Barreleye' was born. Talented guy.

You've played gigs across the world: Europe, South America, and Asia (and hopefully the US soon!). Can you name off any particularly memorable events you've been part of? Do you have a favorite place to play? How does travel affect you as a musician?
I can't really beat playing my own events in Tokyo to be honest. The crowd just go wild for the deep sea stuff when I play as Tr nch even if I am dropping something beatless! I was in Japan for 8 years so I guess I have some good (or maybe just noisy?) friends. The best gig I had outside of Japan was probably in Argentina back in 2006 at a place aptly named Octano in (crazy) Cordoba. I was playing angry electro tech at the time & they just went berserk. I promptly responded by staying up the whole of the next day to the detriment of the large thing in the centre of my face. Oops. Which brings me to the final part of the question: traveling makes me TIRED, mostly, but inspires me on so many levels at the same time. My father was a pilot so I guess its in my blood.

Early last year, you were diagnosed with cancer. Please talk about about your holistic approach to treatment, and please tell us about your fundraiser.
Well I was already at Stage 4 (i.e the cancer had already spread via my lymph nodes to my liver and my lungs) when I was diagnosed (over 5% survive beyond 5 years on the UK National Health Service), chemo still seems just totally counter-intuitive to me and having started doing acupuncture in Japan a few years before holistic was always going to be my approach. I am also fucking sceptical about conventional medicine in general & the pharmaceutical companies in particular. Whats the point treating a symptom if once you have got rid of it (the tumours) it comes roaring back? So, I gave up booze, late nights, all the so-called 'food' aka JUNK we eat like processed or refined (aka zero nutritional value) foods and embarked on a whole bunch of whole body treatments: healthy nutrition to flush the body with antioxidants, regular exercise, supplement programmes to boost the immune system, etc etc. You can read all about it on my fundraiser blog. Feel free to add to the donations if you can: so far my friends and family raised over 19,000GBP at last look. The money is going fast on these damn expensive treatments though…

Tell us about Mariana.
Inspired by David Attenborough's Blue Planet 'The Deep' episode we started Mariana in 2008. The concept of deep sea trench fitted perfectly with how I was feeling a year on from my first Labyrinth musically and spiritually. I realised both something that had a more outdoors than indoor vibe, that touched on nature even if not actually in it. The concept is still to immerse the crowd into the experience though the Mariana Limited parties have taken over to some extent. Mariana Limited (past guests Ben Klock, Kirk Dediorgio and next Peter Van Hoesen live) is big brother to the main Mariana event series (past guests Cio D'Or, Mike Parker, PVH, Pendle Coven, MLZ) which fully embraces the deep sea concept with multi screen deep sea visuals both analogue & digital, music, plus there is also littler sister Mariana Dub Session for the housier, etcher or dubber guests (Kassem Mosse, Delta Funktionen, next Conforce). The Tr nch DJ set & productions very much represent the Mariana sound, with my DJing as Dave Twomey the more eclectic selection based on my wide ranging love of house & techno and all things in between. As much as I am still devoted to Mariana & the Tr nch sound, in many ways my cancer diagnosis in 2010 changed so many things, including the context for me to listen to music, especially the deep stuff so I listen to less and less techno. I get up at 6 or 7am, go to bed at 10pm and rarely go to clubs. So the music is changing for sure…

What other sorts of music do you listen to?
These days I actually don't listen to that much music and when I do its chilled stuff: ambient, world music, etc. Toumani Diabate is the man! Since I can remember, whenever I walked into a room I immediately put music on, much the way so many people do with TV or these days with Facebook. Instant gratification. These days I see the concept of mindfulness as being so important to my recovery (and the future of mankind actually!!!) that in general silence gets a fair old run and music gets put on less and less, which of course makes me enjoy it all the more when I do.

What's next for Mariana?
I'd reeeeeally love to get a label going, but at the moment I have to focus on my health. If I write music for fun it's all good, and some days the creative juices really get going as a result of my healthy lifestyle I think… BUT, the minute I start trying to finish things I am such a god damn amateur that it immediately becomes a stress, which is the big no no. Acceptance & patience are the only way for me right now, though both those and a bunch of Tr nch tracks continue to be works in progress! Next year???

Finally - your anatomy mix. It was recorded live this summer at Bulgaria's Artmospheric Festival. Tell us about the festival, and what you were aiming to do with this set.
The festival is the brain child of a bunch of creatives/djs/experimentalists from Sofia & I followed Donato Dozzy, Natural/Electronic.System & others before me as guest so I put a lot into this gig, aside from the fact that for obvious reasons I haven't been playing out much this last year and half. Misho, the lovely guy who booked me has been a big Tr nch fan since I started it so the set was for him really, and the crowd who got onto the floor to move their asses. The set was my 3rd or 4th using Ableton so was interesting for me to see how things would develop in a festival situation, but I have to admit the second half after i switched to trusty old vinyl and serato that things started to really get going.

monday moods: mathew jonson

tonight i suddenly got in a mathew jonson mood. if you don't know, you should: mathew jonson is from vancouver, canada and has been making some of the best 'minimal techno' in the world for about ten years. his tracks have dropped on labels like itiswhatitis, wagon repair (which he helps run) and probably most notably minus. using just a few percussive elements and an endlessly-looped melody or two, his tracks just keep going and going and going...

he plays an intense live set as well, according to my one experience seeing him jam out barely a dozen tracks over the course of three hours... enough jibber-jabber. a bunch of his music is on youtube, so i've selected a few of my own personal favorites. five tracks, 50 minutes:

'freedom engine' a nice relaxed jam to start off this survey. the other side of the vinyl is 'she is he,' also an excellent track that's sadly not on youtube. easily one of my all-time favorite records...

'marionette' classic - maybe his most well-known track. i'm pretty sure when i saw him play live, he let this one go for about twenty minutes.

'love letter to the enemy' this one is all about rapid-fire synth stabs and those deliciously blissed-out chords...

'symphony for the apocalypse' dark and dripping with psychedelia. incorrectly named on youtube - oh well.

'ball of light' i conclude with this, a particularly bright and shiny vision of the future.

there's plenty more of mathew jonson's material on youtube to check out. if you don't know, or even of you do know, do it to it!

casual violence - dasein is [anatomy 15]

smilecoldanatomy is finally back in action with a new mix, and i'm really excited to share this, the 15th anatomy: daisen is, from casual violence!

casual violence - anatomy 15

put simply, casual violence creates abrasive, cerebral electronic music. i first discovered his music in a mix whose identity i cannot at all recall, to be honest. but i then stumbled across this record (you can stream for free here), and have been following him since. i first contacted steve, as he's casually known, almost exactly a year ago; it's been a long time but we're both happy to present his mix, a 90-minute collection of slow, strange techno. to accompany the set, steve opened up with some extensive responses to my interview questions, so please read on:

Hello, Casual Violence! Tell us a bit about yourself. Where do you come from? How did you discover techno music, and what made you want to start producing your own music?

It's not so easy to pinpoint really how or where I discovered Techno music. When I was young (lets say in the 80's), and was for the first time developing my own taste in music (aside from what I was exposed to from my parents and older sister), Hip Hop, Electro, House, Acid House, and Techno were just developing. I think popular music was much more diverse. Margins were blurred, and genres didn't feel as strict, they were all one and the same to me. I was listening to music of all shapes, and in my mind there was no real difference between Chart music, Punk, New Wave, House, Techno, Electro, Hip Hop, or whatever.

I still pretty much think on this wavelength in some way, however, as I became older my taste shifted much more towards strictly electronic music, and then on to something more cerebral, dense, and abrasive. I became well aware that my city (Manchester, where I was born and still live) had this kind of musical identity and attitude of its own that was somehow dark and serious.

Rave/Hardcore happened pretty big over in the UK and Manchester, and a bunch of us at school got into collecting flyers and trading bootleg tapes from all the big party's we were too young to go to. I discovered Manchester based 808 State, who had their own radio show at the time playing all this great independent electronic music, and through this a more singular taste matured. I moved on to Jungle (which developed in to drum and bass), then became quite obsessed with the more caustic and aggressive sounds of hardcore techno for a while, from there I found Industrial, Rhythmic, Noise, and Drone. Then I got into turntables and started buying house, techno, and trance. Oliver Lieb's, 'LSG - The Black Series EP' pushed me in a more 'intelligent' direction, and then the records that were coming out on labels like Downwards, Tresor, Zhark, E-COM, and Seico Corp showed me that techno could have a more industrial aesthetic that I could totally connect to.

Man I could go on forever on the subject and still not be able to say, "I found techno here" - I guess my taste just developed very organically until I realised that 90% of my record collection was Techno music, and that Techno and all other genres had grown so much more apart.

I started producing my own music as soon as I had the tools to do so. I knew a few people who had small studio set up's and were using Atari ST's and such to create music, but I couldn't really afford the equipment needed to do so myself. My housemate at the time had just got this PC (they were pretty expensive back then), and he had a cousin who worked as a sound engineer. His cousin was saying, "you know you can do all this on a PC now". He knew about and had access to all the software, and installed us a bunch of music programs.

My early creations were pretty rudimentary, just rhythms really, but in time I developed and learned to be more expressive and how to get closer to the sound I wanted. Music is such a great abstract platform for expression of thoughts, ideas, and feelings. I suppose I got addicted, and from that point all my time and focus was channeled in to that process. I lost quite a few jobs, and it pretty much became standard behaviour for my housemate to be waking up at 4 am with me sat at the end of his bed still making music. Eventually he moved out and was nice enough to leave me the PC, I’m not entirely sure if I’ve slept since then.

Which musicians have made the biggest impact on you, as a listener and as a producer? Which musicians excite you right now?
Vromb, Orphx, Huren/Foster, The Klinik, Sonar, Ministry, Trent Reznor, Pan Sonic, Haus Arafna, Geistform, Imminent Starvation, Whitehouse, Throbbing Gristle, Portishead, Public Enemy, 808 State, Depeche mode, Oliver Lieb, Joy Division.
For more techno orientated music: Iesope Drift/Ostia, Porter Ricks, Monolake, Mike Parker, Surgeon, Voidloss, Kareem, Regis, Cristian Vogal, Sleep Archive, British Murder Boys, Inigo Kennedy, Makaton.

I’m very much stimulated by industrial, rhythmic, and noise type music. It’s not just about the aggression and the sonic extremities, it’s also got something to do with this kind of aesthetic that seems to speak about something very real - It's difficult to put into words and articulate what I mean. For me music and sound must have a feeling of texture and depth, and I have a preference for more hypnotic music. I like when something takes it's time to develop. I just can't connect so well with instant gratification within most things. Even music that may seem quite harsh and powerful can still remain subtle and restrained.

I also find interest in film and game music/sound design. For example, the work of Akira Yamaoka, who did the music for the Silent Hill games, which have this almost overbearing mood and atmosphere. I have a huge interest in sound and sound design in general; to me it goes side by side with music.

Most Recently, I've been listening to (as ever) lots of Orphx (Their latest Album, 'Radiotherapy' is on heavy rotation) - Lots of music from an American duo, 'Lapse', who have this wonderfully textural and hypnotic style of techno - I’m constantly listening to, and inspired by Vromb (who I listen too possibly more than I listen to anybody else) - And right this very moment, as I type I’m listening to Haus Arafna's album, 'Butterfly', which is an amazing album. Additionally, I’m liking the current sound that’s been coming out of Italy these past few years via the Zooloft and Prologue camps.

If you had to choose your three all-time favourite records or songs, what would they be, and why?
That’s very difficult, and it changes constantly. Right now I will go with (in no particular order):

'Vromb - Episodes'
It’s hard for me to choose just one Vromb record. I was going to say 'Rayons', but I've basically gone with the highly scientific approach of, "the one that I think has the best packaging", and that’s 'Episodes'. Vromb is a total master. To try to explain his music, it's this kind of deep, dark, hypnotic, minimal, rhythmic, ambient, technoid, industrial hybrid. His albums energies flow perfectly, with each track effortlessly breathing in and out of each other as one. When I stated above that I like when something takes it's time to develop, this is a perfect example. I would maybe suggest that if you haven't really explored or heard Vromb, then listen to the Rayons album, and if you enjoy it, then listen to Episodes.

'Porter Ricks - Biokinetics'
Extremely filthy and deep, with sounds sucking in and out of each other from all directions. The Biokinetics album has masses and masses of texture, and this amazing production style that I’ve always found to be really quite inspiring.

'Orphx - Insurgent Flows'
Again it's very tough for me to pick just one Orphx album, but this is the one that introduced me to them (and still I think my favourite). Finding Orphx for me was like a reversal of the aforementioned discovery that techno could work so well with industrial and noise elements. Orphx, in balance, are like an industrial/noise project that perfectly incorporates techno elements. Very powerful and intense music… Always inspiring.

'Public Enemy - It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back'
I know you said three, but this one's real important. Public Enemy was the first music I actually chose for myself and the first real 'group' that I ever followed. Another reason for their importance is it's the first time I understood that there was music that had a message of some real weight and importance, it’s also the first time that I understood music to have a culture of its own (Hip Hop).

Aside from techno and 'electronic' music, what else do you listen to?
I listen to a pretty broad range of music; I just haven't really had the chance recently. I’ve been spending so much of my time writing music, which means lots of listening to myself… which is as much a curse as it is a blessing.

You have a full-length album due out next year. Can you tell us about it? How have you changed (or not changed) your production approach for the long-player format? How did you go about picking the album's artwork?
Indeed, it's a (possible double) CD entitled, 'Ashes These', limited to 50 physical copy's (then after that digital), due February 2011 on my own forthcoming label, 'Maieutics'. I’m not entirely sure anymore if I’m writing an album for the label, or if I’m creating the label for the album. It's turned out that they are feeding into and inspiring one another in a very natural way.

It originally started out as an EP intended to launch Maieutics; however, it reached a point where it was eight tracks long and still didn't feel as though the narrative had fully reached its potential conclusion. I had to admit to myself that it was becoming an album, and that if that was to be the case then it wasn't anywhere near finished.

That was back in January this year, and its shape and form at the very start has now totally changed, with tracks being stripped down and rewritten, some being dropped, and new ones being created. It’s an extremely organic process where if, for instance, a new song is added then it changes the whole flavour of the other tracks, along with the entire flow of the album as a whole, and everything needs to be re-evaluated. Like I say, it’s very organic and I’m just going with the flow.

The most notable way that my approach has changed, I guess, would be that I’m freer to experiment and write whatever pleases me. I can be more creative with tempo and form, and I'm free to focus less on the dance floor than I normally would, which has been my desire for a few years now. The fact that I’m self releasing also adds extra freedom, as I only have to answer to myself. It can be pretty hard going as things are never good enough, but I’m almost there, and it’s almost finished (minus some final details). The sleeves are to be handmade, and individually numbered (both by my own hand), so there is still that manufacturing process, and yet more possible creative obstacles to fight with myself about. It's been quite an involving and reflective experience, and very different to any other musical project I’ve ever taken on before.

I’m glad you ask about the artwork as its hugely important to me. I was playing with ideas for the look and feel of the label for quite a while. I had the musical direction, label concept, and visual design nailed, yet was struggling to find an art style that tied in with it all. The main theme behind Maieutics is enlightenment and the marriage between art, science, and philosophy. With the design being very definite and precise to represent science, and the music representing philosophy and existentialism: It made perfect sense that the art direction should of course represent (visual) art itself. I researched the classic paintings and the masters, as I felt these represented a time of enlightenment and discovery in connection with the labels philosophy, and I came across the stunningly epic looking 'Sacred And Profane Love' by Giovanni Baglione, which had this real fascinating story attached to it. I decided this second interpretation of the painting was to be the artwork for the album, and that the basis of the Maieutics artwork thereafter was to be centred mostly around the powerful and most beautiful work of Michelangelo Caravaggio.

I think I first came across your music by way of the gold-plated Why So Few release. So if I may ask, where do the vocals for 'Briefly Sexual' come from?
There are a few good reasons why I probably shouldn't say where they come from. It’s no secret, but it’s best I don't mention it here. Let’s just say that I 'borrowed' them in a creative manner.

I manipulated them slightly from their original form into something new to match the needs of that particular track, so the original source is not entirely obvious. I never intended for the vocal to be such a prominent feature (or expected Briefly Sexual to generate any kind of interest), and it was used purely on the merit of its tone and feel, as is any sound that I use. I chopped it up into single syllables, played with its rhythm and order, duplicated, double tracked, manipulated, and mistreated it in general. I’ve been asked quite a few times what the vocals are saying, and where they are from. The fact is, that the vocals don't say anything tangible whatsoever, and where they are from is a question best asked some other time perhaps.

Do you have an overall 'philosophy of music'? Aside from the musicians and sounds we talk about above, what keeps you inspired as a musician?
I do, and I would hope that's apparent from my (painfully long) answers so far. I’m interested in mood, colour, texture and feel, music has to have this to move me, it has to express something that can be felt, it has to have depth - real depth, where something further can be found beneath the immediate surface… Different layers to explore. I don't mean layers as in how many sounds are there. Music can be stripped down to a stark cold minimum and still have depth and layers inherent within the texture and feel of the sound.

It may sound cliché, but music can be a language and means to communicate ideas, feelings, thoughts, and questions that cannot be expressed so easily with words. It's a way to articulate who we are, what we experience, and a way to question or try explain those things that are perhaps beyond our comprehension. It's very much open to interpretation, a musician for example may try to express one thing with a piece of music, and the listener may interpret it completely differently in his or her own individual way to meet his or her own individual needs at that point in time.

I also believe in music that follows a more organic path, in the way that sounds are introduced, and the way in which energy and intensity flows. I like these things to develop at a natural pace and to require a little patience. Many natural things in the universe move through their own slow and organic cycles. Nature has its cycle and it develops and changes over time. I like this state to be reflected within sound, music, and the process.

Lastly, to briefly expand on a previous point about the blurring of margins. I do understand that there is a need for separate genres, and I'm not saying that it's a bad thing to categorise. Just that a little cross pollination, and a little individuality, are both highly important elements of musical progression.

Aside from the album, what is up next for Casual Violence?
Well, there is of course the label. I’m excited about how that will develop, along with the freedom it will bring. I’m also planning on a second label, 'SELF', which will come from a slightly different angle than Maieutics. There's some releases on the way too, with a 10" on Sect due sometime very soon, following that, I have an EP on Duality due the 16th this month (October), a CD compilation of various artist's that's also on Sect, an EP for Singularity, plus a few other things that I'm yet to start working on.

I have fair number of collaboration projects planned for next year also: some that are still at the idea stage, and some that are already in progress. I can't really say with whom yet as it's best to wait for the music - plus some of these projects are to remain anonymous. For my last booking of the year I’m making a trip to Madrid to play for Geométrika FM and Scrypard at Specka club on the 25th of November, that should be fun, and then finally, In January there is the small matter of my wife and I expecting our first born child.

Finally, tell us about your mix, Dasein Is.
I wanted the mix to be deep, textured, intense, and hypnotic. The tempo is slightly restrained to help enforce this idea, and once the groove is established I believe this makes total sense. There’s some pretty dense and drawn out layering, as my intention was for it to feel like this organically shifting rhythmic whole. The layering, I feel also brings some interesting textures and energies as the sounds wash in and out of each other from time to time. There is a slight dark mood also present throughout that feels and acts like the binding theme for the whole mix. Perhaps all that’s just my own romantic view - I’m sure it is. Ultimately, it's best left open to the interpretation of others ;)

NYC adventure #2

hello! i'm back... and i'm off on another adventure to new york city this weekend:

the centerpiece of my visit is gonna be that party on friday, with eight hours of donato dozzy and nuel (and an otherwise stacked lineup).

next up on saturday - if my legs are still working - is oktave's second birthday party at national underground with edit-select. read up on the news here. happy birthday, oktave!

sunday has an all-day bash with kate simko and delano smith.

and finally, to end the long weekend, a deep space night with francois k and dozzy. i've heard strange things about the venue but i'm down for new things...

who knows if i can make it to everything but meanwhile, i promise i'll finally be able to reveal anatomy 15 in the next few days. it's a weird one, so hold on to your butts. see you on the other side!
