Shaw Cuts – Serenace – The Flying Guillotine – SC009


Serenace, a mysterious duo based in Chicago and Berlin joins the Shaw Cuts squad with “The Flying Guillotine“ – a weapon shaped like a hat with a blade rim and chain attached.
The weapon serves to brutally quash any defiance against the ironfisted Emperor Yung and his regime. The enforcers are twelve specially trained fighters, The Flying Guillotine squadron. “Sheltered In Absence“, its pushing drums and energetic synth elements, chimes to the cruel deeds of the squadron.
The guard Ma Teng flees when he witnesses the brutality unleashed by the men and the lethal weapon. The raging emperor commands his fighters to capture him, but Ma has disappeared into thin air. „Vitrine“, a diverse groove combining swinging percussions and warm melodies circles over head, helping Ma to stay undercover.
The slaughter continues as the squadron relentlessly search for Ma. Ma turns back and confronts the army. Equipped with his own deadly weapon, he joins forces with Kreggo and his „2in1“ remix version, wiping out the squadron one by one.
„Spun Coral“ sweeps in, drowning out the sound of guillotines gliding through the air until the last member falls. Silence reigns over the battlefield. But the myth of the fatal weapon remains.

Turnland – Various Artists – Organic grids & linear fluids – Triggered Sound/Graphic – TL003


2 Tracks by Gustaaf and S&W as an result of the audio/visuell Installation „Organic grids & linear fluids —Triggered Sound/Graphic“ by Christian Nicolaus. Brought to you on Vinyl by Turnland Records.

S&W delivers an Rhodes driven Track with moody melodies wich sounds in a way dub-ish without loosing that nice 80´s synth edge.

The Track by Gustaaf follows, in contrast to his debut on Prongof 108, more an darkish electro vibe without trying super hard to sound like Drexciya. ;)

Graphic Designer Christian Nicolaus has developed a sound/graphic contraption that uses a projected grid in an half-open cube. This Installation becomes a classic step-sequencer to trigger and create simultaneous sounds and graphics.
A modular grid is played and individually composed by tracked surfaces
that are placed in the sound/graphic grid.
Completely different sound and graphic combinations are created, which
result in a composition created interactively by the viewer.

In collaboration with Christian Nicolaus and Turnland Records two of the compositions made by Gustaaf and S&W are available on Vinyl (release date: 22.02.2019).
The design of the record is also based on the grid used in the Installation. Through folding the cover, eight different modular combinations are possible. The Record comes with a full booklet describing the process of the Installation.
