Title Sonne = Black Box
Label Faitiche
Year 2011
Design Jan Jelinek
Music Ur electronic
Notes I’ve been a long-time fan of Jan Jelinek’s music, particularly his work as Gramm and Farben. I did an interview with him a decade or so ago. The likes of Textstar, Personal Rock and Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records continue to strike me as supremely elegant/futuristic/contemporary. Around 2005 his interest began to look towards kozmische concerns and then further back to early electronic music pioneers which brings us to this release. Of course a sizable question mark hangs over Bogner’s head as to whether she’s Jelinek’s alter-ego or not. Jelinek acknowledges this in the book by including a short piece by Momus on the subject. The danger of such work – as with the English hauntological branch represented by Ghost Box et al – is that of pastiche. That’s not the case here either visually or musically. This is the opening paragraph of Andrew Pekler’s introduction to the release (read the rest here):

I was pleasantly surprised when Faitiche invited me to investigate the Ursula Bogner archives and assemble a collection of her works for this second volume of recordings. My delight was all the greater when during my research I came upon a cache of materials (tape recordings, notes, graphic scores) which bring to light two previously unheard but overlapping aspects of Bogner’s music: her experiments with tape manipulation and her use of the voice as a sound source.

Faitiche, which translates as fact/fetish (perfect name for the endeavour), is the label Jelinek set up in 2008 for previously unreleased installation, soundtrack, collaboration and other fragmentary works. It’s also released two brilliant 12″s of new Farben music – you can listen to samples and buy the EPs from Boomkat: Farben EP and Xango. The predominantly monochrome house style is consistently wonderful with playful references to ethonographic archives, 60s/70s museum displays and academic research. Each design sets my heart racing. Highly recommended.

Also Farben – Starbox

  23. Today, I went to the beach front with my
    children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
