Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck - Asshole / Snail Dilemma

>> Wednesday, January 14, 2009

"The Asshole / Snail Dilemma CD on the Berlin-based extreme noise label Tochnit Aleph documents Eber's most unsettling aktion, his Tokyo Concert for Stringquintett and Asstrompet. It is without a doubt one of the most bloodcurdling listens imaginable. This Mount Everest of musical misery pairs increasingly tense string squalls whose lurid peaks recall Penderecki's Threnody or Xenakis in a particularly foul mood with blood curdling cries of ecstatic pain from Yakushinji Kaori, a female participant who apparently has the aforementioned trumpet inserted inside her anus during the performance. Credited as an actress, it remains unclear whether Kaori is genuinely suffering, simulating great suffering, or some unsettling combination of the two. Her torrent of sobs and cries seems entirely at odds with the received framework of out vocalizing defined by Diamanda Galas, Patty Waters, and Margaret de Wys."
