Two New Releases from Karl Schmidt Verlag!

KSV 006 Karl Schmidt - Remediated and Decontextualized Field Recordings Vol. 1 (CDR)

Karl captures the screams of lesser composers as works by Chris Watson, Inverz, Kanalkrank, Koen Holtkamp, Lawrence​ English and a host of other vanilla latte baristas are trammeled on the road to Nagra Hell. Herr Schmidt wraps the remains in the 28 train and lets the algorithms do the rest...

Recorded, degraded, mixed, mastered and produced by Karl Schmidt in Lisboa, Portugal, January 2009.


01 Untitled (44:15)


Edition of 15. Sleeve by Carla Schultze.


KSV 007 Azul-Cobalto - Patrocínio e Inibição (CDR)

The Lisboa combo document Museu Colecção Berardo's insane current exhibition of the works of radical Portuguese artist Maria Helena Vieira de Silva. Makes Christian Marclay's Footsteps sound like location recordings of Simon Reynolds' sexual flop-sweat by comparison...

(Although we would definitely release those if someone would sent them to us!)


Carlo Goytacaz - H2
