The Alpine Continuum – From Stars to Mountains

Very little is known about the enigmatic Alpine Continuum, all we know is that the return address on this recording is a very small mountain village deep in the Swiss Alps. What is certain is that this is timeless cosmic music; a hypnotic interplanetary journey either to or from the center of the universe. Sounding something like a celestial offspring of Tangerine Dream, Carl Craig and Demdike Stare, this 40 minute tapestry of sound sometimes drifts weightlessly, as alien voices can be heard being transmitted from the farthest corners of the galaxy, at other times it moves at motorik light-speed past solar events and lush planets, which are lost as soon as they are discovered. This is new dimensional music, way beyond the horizon of your hi-fi.

    Named after the Brian De Palma film about the intimacy and invasive nature of sound recording (in his case a metaphor for filmmaking), this EP finds Toronto’s VOWLS eavesdropping on Pop music. The a-side Burlap swaggers around a drum machine beat that sounds like a New Order 45 played at 33rpm, with thick psychedelic layers […]

    March 25, 2011 | 11:27 am

      About the Film Inspired by Ron Hardy’s disco re-edits, Michael Marranda’s revised literary texts and Richard Prince’s appropriated photographs, this video is composed entirely from footage taken from D.A. Pennebaker’s documentary on the 1967 Monterey Pop music festival. Instead of using the iconic footage of the performances, VOWLS chose to focus on the audience, […]
