John Wiese
Escaped Language
One-Sided LP
Gilgongo Records
GGGR-093
Release Date: September 20, 2017

Label description:
Recorded during Ina/GRM’s 2016 Présences Électronique Festival in Paris, John Wiese’s Escaped Language is a concise and calculated piece which slowly evolved in various settings over a number of years. While 2015′s Deviate From Balance double-LP was expansive and chronicled performances and works employing many other musicians, here, Wiese dissects and reassembles portions of his vocabulary alone. Simultaneously dense and sparse, delicate and abrasive, free and tactical, the resulting recording stands as a substantial document of his approach to sound, twenty-five years into his prolific tenure.

SISSY SPACEK “Slow Move” CD (Troniks)
A low tech grumble of dynamic basement frequencies and stoic screech to form an uncomfortable and uncompromising electronic wail from the depths.

Purple Rain: Terror Beyond Belief
Spectacle Theater’s Best of 2016 and January 27 screening:
http://www.spectacletheater.com/best-of-spectacle-2016/#purple

PURPLE RAIN: TERROR BEYOND BELIEF
dir. John Wiese, 2014.
USA, 90 min.
English

FRIDAY JANUARY 27 – 7:30 PM

Having brought to our audience such spectacular single-work détournements like THE SHINING FORWARDS AND BACKWARDS and TOUGH GUYS, we are now pleased to premiere Los Angeles-based artist John Wiese’s 2014 effort PURPLE RAIN: TERROR BEYOND BELIEF.

Described by Wiese himself as “a new edit of PURPLE RAIN where Prince murders Apollonia and gets away with it,” PR:TBB shines a darker shade of purple on the “greatest music movie of them all.” If “Darling Nikki” was all it took for Tipper Gore to start the PMRC, one wonders what PR:TBB might have done for the MPAA.

Unlike other works of appropriation which selectively reorganize “bites” into a new decontexualized construct, PR:TBB pushes an existing, diegetic act of violence a few cinematic degrees further, and then lets the third act play through (albeit without Apollonia’s presence). This is PURPLE RAIN as you have seen it before (yet not).

BIO:
An artist and composer living in Los Angeles, John Wiese is a highly respected figure, both in contemporary sound art as well as the international experimental music underground. Wiese is also known for his influential grind/noisecore band Sissy Spacek, extreme electronics unit LHD, and for numerous collaborations. He is also an accomplished visual and graphic artist, with a long list of international exhibitions and printed materials.

T. Mikawa/John Wiese
Oblique No Strategy
Helicopter, H 78
CD/Digital
Release Date: November 1, 2016

1. Cryptic Number
2. Camouflage
3. World of Other Stuff
4. Lung Capacity

Helicopter is proud to present the first ever collaboration between T. Mikawa (Incapacitants, Hijokaidan) and John Wiese (Sissy Spacek, LHD). Since their first meeting in Tokyo in August 2000, readers may remember Mikawa’s liner notes on Wiese’s 2005 Troniks release “Teenage Hallucination: 1992–1999″, but it took a full fifteen years before the two had the opportunity to sit down and record together. Recorded in Tokyo at Ochiai Soup in 2015, the pair’s electronics bleed into one another to form an immersive and astounding energy. Mixed and mastered by Wiese during a residency at the studio of Ina/GRM in Paris, 2016.
