DESERTSHORE / THE FINAL REPORT

Industrial Records is proud to announce the much anticipated TWO album release DESERTSHORE / THE FINAL REPORT, a unique collaboration by Chris Carter, Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson and
Cosey Fanni Tutti.

This is a two album release celebrating both the progress inherent in change and the fulfilment of two exceptional, yet separate projects.

Available Now! from Industrial Records

Desertshore
The ‘Desertshore’ project is a 're-imagined' cover version of
Nico’s seminal 1970 album first conceived by the late Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson in Berlin 2006. In 2010 at his home in Bangkok, he refocussed his approach readying to record guest vocalists while Chris and Cosey prepared material in their UK studio for his return there in December. Sadly, Sleazy unexpectedly died in his sleep on the 25th November in Bangkok.

Chris and Cosey made a commitment to Sleazy to complete the ‘Desertshore’ project picking up from where they left off just prior to his untimely passing. With enthusiastic support and contributions from so many who were close to Sleazy, especially the guest artistes whose work he admired; 
Antony, Marc Almond, Blixa Bargeld, Sasha Grey and Gaspar Noé,
the project is now complete.

"
a quite remarkable set of songs, a repurposing of Nico's maudlin, scraping sorrow into the deep mindmassaging electronics that characterised later live work by Throbbing Gristle, X-TG and Carter Tutti,arguably even Coil's Ape Of Naples." Luke Turner for The Quietus as part of a review of a live remix preview performance of 'Desertshore' at AV Festival 2012.


The Final Report
Throughout their 36 year friendship Chris Carter, Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson and Cosey Fanni Tutti produced many pioneering and acclaimed collaborative works together.
These trio sessions were without exception always very productive; ideas that produced many hours of recordings, sound experiments, research in new performance possibilities, visuals, the ongoing design and building of new and innovative instruments; a constant restless exploration of new paths together.

‘The Final Report’ album has been completed from their final 2009/2010 sessions together at Chris and Cosey's studio in Norfolk. This album stands as the final report; a celebration, a loving remembrance of their unique partnership.

Industrial Records Ltd are proud to release these TWO extraordinary recordings.


Two teaser videos are available on YouTube


Bioschismic
NEW COSEY FANNI TUTTI SOUNDWORK

Cosey has composed a new sound piece Bioschismicthat can be heard as part of the 'Bruce Nauman Days' exhibition at the I.C.A. in London.
19 June 2012 - 16 September. Entry to the exhibition is free.


Bioschismic’ - inspired and made possible by Xeni Jardin

“Time becomes plastic. Your experience of time morphs................ And when you come out of it, on the strong days right before the next scheduled infusion, all of that time compresses into blurry waves of noise.”  Xeni Jardin
Time is defined by and within the human experience yet the dominance of ‘linear’ time prevails. We are inextricably linked with time, ‘Life’ is measured in time. 
Depending on particular situations our experience of time can be elusive, appear stretched, accelerated, and on occasions all too specifically in synch with defined parameters. Audio recordings, film, Internet, and photography are some of the means by which we choose to mark ‘times’. Such documentary methods signify our need to externalise particular events and also to activate memories. 

‘Bioschismic’ is created solely from audio and photographic documentation of Xeni’s time spent receiving Chemo Therapy. The repetitive drip drip rhythm of the toxic chemicals measured in precise doses over a specific period of time provide the prospect of extending (life) time. Time is the dominant force yet the effects of the drugs change the experience of time to a space that is other worldly - a different time zone - a schism within and for life itself.

CARTER TUTTI VOID - TRANSVERSE ALBUM

Mute are pleased to announce the release of CARTER TUTTI VOID’s Transverse, a unique collaboration from Chris Carter & Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle) and Nik Void (Factory Floor), out on vinyl, CD and download on 26 March 2012.

Transverse is a unique collaboration, created especially for the legendary Short Circuit presents Mute festival at the Roundhouse, London in 2011.

The tracks were prepared in the studio and then performed and recorded live in front of an audience. Outside of the trio, these recordings were unheard prior to the festival and the popularity of the performance left many being turned away at the door.

Mute is proud to make this groundbreaking recording available and to be working again with two of electronic music’s true pioneers and one of its new trail blazers.

Said The Quietus of the performance: “…a warm embrace, creating a deep connection… Carter at the back manipulates the electronics while on either flank, Void scratches noise with bowed guitar and Tutti plays while singing vocals that she mangles and distorts… there is no nihilism in this noise, nothing but a deep and wonderful sense of love.”
