From the VoizNoiz double vinyl album. VoizNoiz continues to find many afficionados, hence the reason for making it available now on double vinyl LP including a brandnew extended remix with Oene Van Geel playing viola, voice and his amazing cracklebox. The double g vinyl is housed in a hardback gatefold cover and is Limited to copies. The new Remix and the original album are available separate as download.
Banabila continues to release new adventurous music as well, often on his own TapuRecords. I was pleasantly surprised. It would take the dedicated listener is dissect the remix and compare to the other 20 tracks to determine what elements were remixed. Suffice it to say, the remix with its looped rhythms, found sounds, and violin is excellent. As a bonus there is a new sixteen-minute suite, which is a remix of sounds used on the original and its crafted together by Banabila and Oene van Geel, with whom he regularly collaborates.
Van Geel plays viola and crackle box and adds voice. This too evolves around rhythm, but over the course of the piece changes the station quite a bit, while sounds fly in and out, yet none of which are Speak - Banabila* - VoizNoiz II: Urban Sound Scapes recognized from the original pieces.
Only towards the end, when things become sufficiently more abstract the viola of Van Geel gets a dominant position in the piece, making a soaring a beautiful end to the album Subtitled Urban Sound Scapes, the album is 48 Speak - Banabila* - VoizNoiz II: Urban Sound Scapes of experimentation spread across 20 tracks, plus a bonus track remix by Michel Banabila and Oene Van Geel clocking in at 16 minutes. All of the tracks impart different aspects of urban life in various locales.
Each of the tracks is built upon processed looped voice samples, sometimes just Speak - Banabila* - VoizNoiz II: Urban Sound Scapes words, to provide a rhythmic foundation.
Then drums, electronics, and keyboards complete each composition. These little snippets of sonic explorations ranging from 39 seconds to 4 minutes are the perfect duration. So it was with some apprehension that I approached the 16 minutes remix. Zoals de titel suggereert, staat de stem centraal - zij het niet als zang, maar als bron van een eindeloze verzameling korte samples waarmee Banabila speelt alsof het losse noten op een keyboard zijn. De samples zijn te kort om te herkennen en lijken overal en nergens vandaan te komen: commercials, popmuziek, een soek, de lokale supermarkt.
Het geheel wordt bij elkaar gehouden door laidback ritmes, die soms een beetje een hiphop gevoel hebben. Dat maakt het ook meteen tijdloos; er is weinig waaruit blijkt dat de muziek al bijna twintig jaar oud is. Naast de 20 tracks Speak - Banabila* - VoizNoiz II: Urban Sound Scapes het orgineel, staat op de D-kant een nieuwe remix door Banabila en Oene van Geel, met wie hij wel vaker samenwerkt. Als een wandeling door een stad Speak - Banabila* - VoizNoiz II: Urban Sound Scapes de eerste mooie dag van de lente, als iedereen vrolijk en een beetje gek is.
Banabila brightens the room with abstract effects, crackle and hiss and playful genre-bending — from blues to pop to world musics to county fair to folk and back again —all brought together in a clever electronic production. My strangest discovery of was this reissue of an album from 20 years ago by the prolific and talented Dutch alchemist Michel Banabila.
In particular he has a talent for voice samples. Any discernible Kevin Hayes - Jan Tenner 27 - Station Der Vorzeit no longer matter; the voices have become pure instruments. A leftfield downtempo masterpiece. The way in which he takes disparate elements and creates such coherent tracks with the players is magnificent.
Therefore nothing is how you imagined it would be, and some of the strange manipulated and processed voices make it kinda trippy! Also various things happened. Back then I used to leave much of Banabila's music to Mulder, wrongly assuming it was all more about world music along the lines of Jon Hassell, calling it wrongly 'fourth world music', until Banabila slapped me, quite rightfully and politely, on the wrist, basically saying I was wrong and should listen better.
I did, and much to my surprise much of Banabila's music covers a wider territory, both ambient, world music, experiment and even noise, as his for instance his work with Machinefabriek testify. So when this 2LP re-issue of the original 'VoizNoiz' arrived I didn't forward this to Mulder, but decided to go for it myself, with Fair Game - Sia - 1000 Forms Of Fear recently last decade or so acquired knowledge of Banabila's music.
As the title indicates, voices play quite an important role in the music and while I have no idea where these voices come from samples? Here too Banabila works extensively sampling, lifting his sources wide and far.
From old records, TV tunes, obscure documentaries and with all of this he creates some excellent, mostly short, pieces of Polonaise Van L. Mozart - Various - 25 Jaar Veghelse Muziek-School. Only once it connects with a dance music scene, when it becomes drum 'n bass like, but in none of the other pieces there is this connection, which makes the music actually very much out of any time, really.
Throughout the music has a very filmic character, even when the shortness pieces make it sounds a bit fragmented. Lots of these pieces could easily be edited onto a movie or a documentary you may not be surprised to learn that Banabila does quite a bit of that for Dutch TV and film. These pieces are short, sweet, dark, funny, strange and to the point and yet this variation is never Speak - Banabila* - VoizNoiz II: Urban Sound Scapes it all works very well together.
Only towards the end, when things become sufficiently more abstract the viola of Van Geel gets a dominant position in the piece, making a soaring a beautiful end to the album. The subtitle of this album is 'urban sound scapes' and that is surely a true thing; sounds from all of the urban landscape are used here, think of the inner city of Banabila's hometown Rotterdam on a hut summer's day, and it is most lovely, weird, pleasant album.
The mood here is certainly as diverse as the city. Banabila strings together 20 soothing skunk funk oddities that delight and bemuse in equal portions. Tender beats, oddball samples, live instrumentation and vocal snippets weave together to make a warming abstract picture, one of those ones that looks good whichever way you hang it The strength of this fascinating found-sound pastiche will be enough to send fans of musique concrete, advanced turntablism, and trip-hop scouring the import bins This is an exquisite album by an artist who deserves much wider recognition Banabila assembles riffs from found-sound and vocal fragments into oddly conversational grooves.
This approach recalls Coil, but without their inward-looking menace. VoizNoiz is every bit as post-modern as the work of today's DSP-terrorists, but it's a much easier listen Radboud Mens: sampling.
