For The Colleagues Of Ubu & Their Authorities


For The Colleagues Of Ubu & Their Authorities is the brainchild of Vienna-based vinyl enthusiast, DJ, and producer The Reboot Joy Confession. What once started as a series of mixes has been expanded into this compilation, on which he brings together diverse genres of music like electronica, modern minimalism, folk, post-rock, avant-garde, or modular music, which also reflect his own versatile musical taste. The compilation includes the surreal work of Swiss producer Dim Grimm (also known as Dimlite), as well as a collaboration between Merz & Julian Sartorius Drum Ensemble who radically altered the original version of "The Hunting Owl" into a monstrous percussive live version. Taken off the debut album from one of Poland ́s most interesting musicians at the moment, Waclaw Zimpel & Kuba Ziołek, "Wrens" is a fusion of folk, jazz and modern minimal music. Experimental pop musician and filmmaker Tujiko Noriko appears with an emotional piece that challenges the paths between pop and avant-garde. Gerhard Zander, whose musical work started on the outskirts of experimental pop music in the early '70s in Germany, delivers a modular synth masterpiece with unique sounds, textures, and a far-out synth choir. Rock and ambient influenced musician Helen Money (aka Alison Chesley) is a Los Angeles-based cellist and composer who appears with a massively dark post-rock song called "MF", which was recorded at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio studio in Chicago in 2009. Often compared to Frank Zappa and known for their richness of ideas, Liverpool's a.P.A.t.T. contribute the hypnotic "Young Free & Parasite", with references to British glam, post-punk, or synth rock, but in a fresh and obscure sounding outfit. SSELLF, the moniker of New Zealand ́s Christoph El Truento, inspired by post-punk and noise. "Visitors" is simple and simply in your face, with lo-fi drums, distorted synths, and raw vocals. After a few seclusive years, The Reboot Joy Confession returns with a new, crispy and soulful track. Cinematic strings written by Martin Riedler, arranged by Flip Phillip, and recorded at the established Vienna Konzerthaus, based on a properly arranged drum outfit and played by a villain named Gurlimu. Oceaneer, aka Japanese pianist Oneechan Nanashi, completes the compilation with her beautiful and profound composition "The Sea, Forever".
